On Wednesday 04/30/14, our meeting will focus on Netezza 7.1, Modeling and Design for Netezza, and Metadata Driven ETL – a flavor implemented in Netezza. We want to thank all speakers, officers, and members who have made this group a success! 04/30/14 6PM-8:15PM IBM Client Center- Room 2217, 1 Rogers Street, Cambridge, MA
6:00 PM – 6:30 PM Networking and Refreshments
6:30 PM – 7:15 PM Netezza 7.1- Release Features and Upgrades- Jeff Carlson, Technical Sales Manager, Big Data- IBM Jeff will present a detailed description of the Netezza 7.1 release features and upgrades, including customer stories. 7:15 PM – 7:45 PM Metadata Driven ETL – a flavor implemented in Netezza- Charlene Liang, VP of Analytics and Optimization, IQ Associates/NES Would you like to process a new set of data without changing the ETL code, even with different data structures? Metadata driven ETL is one of the directions data warehousing technology is heading. We will show a successful practice that uses metadata to minimize data transformation development resources. 7:45 PM – 8:15 PM Modeling and Design for Netezza - Biju Nair, Software Engineer With its AMPP architecture and specialized hardware, Netezza can process high volume of data at a speed previously unimaginable. Many installations see their processing time drop drastically when they move to Netezza as is without any changes. So is modeling and design relevant for such a specialized appliance? We will try to identify that during this presentation.
