This Meetup is past

30 people went


In the Internet of Things era, enterprises that leverage big data driven applications to run core business services gain a competitive edge over others. Big Data infrastructures like Hadoop while well suited for batch processing workloads, do not fully address real-time big data requirements that are inherently latency sensitive.

Join Oracle NoSQL DB and the WebAction team in a discussion on architecting a real time big data app platform to solve real world use cases. Dave Rubin will share what's new /up-coming in this exciting area of technological need for the Oracle NoSQL Database. Alok Pareek will present and showcase “real-world” big data apps ON WebAction - an integrated platform that uses a declarative SQL like interface for addressing real-time analytics, high throughput in-memory processing, event correlation, and intelligent storage and alerting.

Snacks and Beverages will be provided
