Extracting Big Intelligence out of Big Data through Excel
Michael J Chen, founder and technical lead of BiBo Labs Inc, will have an open discussion on the extraction of data out of MongoDB into rich formula based Excel worksheets while incorporating formulas, aggregates, crosstabs, pivots, and charts.
Over the years, Big Data has primarily been focused on simplifying the capture and sharding of data at the expense of simplified standardized reporting.
This discussion is about how Segovia can supplement some of the pitfalls of NoSQL with an enterprise reporting framework. Through Segovia, developers, DBA’s and analysts can painlessly create sophisticated Excel report out of MongoDB.
You can see a vimeo about what will be presented: Part I, Part II.

Factual is in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.
We recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free and our building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go up to floor 14, and Factual is in Suite 1450.
