Business Intelligence cubes: scalable and realtime, using affordable technologies

Speaker: Po Ming Lam (http://www.linkedin.com/in/pominglam)

There was a need for an architecture design that can support millions of new records per day, and the reporting need to be real time. Scaling horizontally and supporting thousands of new records per second was one of the hurdles, the other one was to deal with real time reporting with several dimensions and facts in the cubes. So, the problem is that standard cubes require rebuild time in order to get updated, and the rebuild time is in relation with the size of the dataset, which implies it's not really scalable from an architectural design standpoint. The proposed solution is a "realtime cube" that does not need to be rebuilt and is efficiently scalable. If we wanted to implement it, how do we architect that? What are the pitfalls? This talk covers the overview of the architecture and guidelines.
