• The Streaming Journey of Oracle to Hadoop/NoSQL, a major US Bank's experience

    You cannot afford to miss this epic event with free T-shirts, wine/brandy, caviar, cheeses, goodies PLUS 2-PEOPLE will win Samsung Smartwatches! • Michael Elkin, Co-Founder & COO, DBS-H • Swag giveaway + food/drinks at 6:30pm • Power-Networking at 6:35pm • Presentation starts at 6:40pm • LOTS of networking opportunities! This will be a joint Meetup event with the NYC NewSQL/NoSQL Group http://www.NYCSQL.com/events/261933680/ Everyone is talking about how the free flow of data in real time is the most important key success factor for an enterprise today. And yet, in most enterprises, the key business data is still in "lock down", held captive by their Oracle gatekeeper (or similar database) and data flow is at-best based on old-fashioned batch-oriented, massively intrusive and delayed-delivery ETL routines. However, enterprises can have their cake and eat it too by using real-time SQL to big data/cloud transaction streaming technology. They can enjoy the business benefits of Oracle-based legacy systems while democratizing key business data simultaneously, to be consumed in real-time by enterprise units using whatever big data engine they decide best suits their business needs. Maintaining legacy key business systems is necessary so that the enterprise can continue to thrive, but at the same time the data that is created and stored in these systems should be free to run, take on new forms and deliver competitive advantage far and above what was ever possible before. Come and learn how you can do that at this information-packed event, and you will soon become the superstar at your enterprise! In this session, we will discuss: ❧ CDC vs ETL approach: what is the best way to achieve non-intrusive, real time transaction streaming from core SQL databases ❧ LIVE DEMO on the diversity of targets: how a single SQL transaction can be pushed into non-relational targets such as Hadoop (Kafka, HBASE, Hive) or NoSQL engines like MongoDB, Neo4j and Elasticsearch. ❧ Enabling converged-cloud by streaming from an AWS Oracle RDS source to another region, or even to another cloud like Azure CosmosDB ❧ LIVE DEMO of Oracle feeding the public cloud: real time streaming from Oracle on-premise to the public cloud using AWS S3 and Google BigQuery ❧ Lessons learned and technology enhancements including: • • • Ultra-fast streaming to Kafka without waiting for Oracle commit • • • Hbase secondary indexes and Hive external tables envelope • • • Data compare and delta sync with internal conflict resolution • • • Neo4j: from referential constraints to graph relations ❧ The true "BigData" story from a top US bank transitioning from streaming technology as an enabler to a successful BigData project ••• Michael Elkin, Co-Founder & COO, DBS-H ••• Michael Elkin is the co-founder and chief technical lead at DBS-H Ltd.

  • 🦏 Autonomous Database Self-Management with End-User Transparency +Caviar/Drinks

    ➤ Enjoy free caviar, cheese, chocolate & fun hard-drinks PLUS giving away $500 of books! ➤ Presented by CEO & Founder of Hibernating Rhinos, Oren Eini • Swag giveaway + food/drinks at 6:30pm • Power-Networking at 6:35pm • Presentation starts at 6:40pm • On-on-one with the speaker at approximately 8:00pm In this exciting presentation, Oren will explore the next natural phase of economical administration to significantly reduce human supervision. It is a combination of two intertwined themes: mature database self-management and transparency to end users. Mature database self-management is achieved by a set of autonomous database behaviors, including continuous detection of the cluster's state, smart shuffling of data and tasks in the cluster, learning about the operational environment, and automatic introduction and management of indexes. Transparency to end users is gained by features like invisibility of auto-indexing to applications, and a tight integration between cluster nodes and clients, so that clients would not be alarmed by automatic failure-recoveries. A database that intelligently organizes itself and resolves its own issues and shields its end-users from unnecessary alarms will exempt its administrator from many daily hassles. In principle, non-relational databases are economical creatures; they are designed to do what is needed within the resources that are available. But it is also important to avoid wasting money, time, computing power and human effort - and for that you need autonomous database behaviors. This presentation will teach you exactly how to do that! ••• Oren Eini, CEO & Founder, Hibernating Rhinos ••• Oren Eini, CEO and Founder of Hibernating Rhinos, has more than 20 years of experience in the development world with a strong focus on the Microsoft and .NET ecosystem.

Presented by Brian Bulkowski, Founder & CTO, Aerospike • RSVP NOW at http://www.NYCSQL.com/events/255674708/ Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is all around us! From recommendation engines that serve up Internet ads to fraud checking as we process digital payments, it is all using AI and ML. However, not all machine learning/artificial intelligence is the same- some ML/AI is built using offline models whereas others are built with real-time infrastructure. The more data that you can feed your AI/ML-powered applications, the better they will perform. In this action-packed session you will learn from Brian Bulkowsi, founder of Aerospike, what and how Nielsen and others innovators have built in order to power their AI and ML applications, along with other exciting use cases. --> Brian Bulkowski, Founder & CTO, Aerospike <-- Brian is a Founder and the CTO of Aerospike. With almost 30 years in Silicon Valley, his motivation for starting Aerospike was the confluence of what he observed, that the rapidly advancing flash storage technologies with lower costs were not being fully leveraged by database systems, along with the apparent scaling limitations of sharded MySQL systems, have led to identifying the need for a new distributed database. These needs became clear during Brian's prior roles as both a Lead Engineer at Novell and Chief Architect at Cable Solutions at Liberate, where he built a high-performance, embedded networking stack & high scale broadcast server infrastructure.
