  • ⚠️ Insufficient Facts Are Dangerous! ☠️ Use a Logical Data Model to Combat Them!

    • Free T-shirts, pizza, beer & drinks + win a Sonos One Speaker! • Mike Grove, Founder & VP of Engineering, Stardog • A Database Month event http://www.DBMonth.com/database/logical-model 34. What is 34?! Is it a distance? An amount? Temperature? Location? A time duration? Without any context, it is difficult to effectively use a piece of data. What that data is and what it means is critical context required to get the most out of your data. This is especially important in this era where data has become the most important asset of an enterprise. When you bring context to data and understand what it is as well as how it fits into your world, you create knowledge, and that is the fundamental building block of a modern enterprise. While understanding the context of data is key, it is also important to remember that there is no universal context. What makes sense in one case may not in another. We often see this in Master Data Management (MDM) scenarios where there is a disagreement on the definition of a customer and then the process grinds to a halt. Not only does a logical data model let us better represent our data, it provides us the flexibility to look at the data from a different perspectives and bring more agility as to how we leverage data in the enterprise. In this presentation we will discuss: • How to define what a logical data model is and contrast it to current approaches, like data lakes and warehouses • Examples of data models and how they can be used as lenses over our data • Why logical models are a key component to a knowledge graph • Real world use cases where a logical model was leveraged ••• Mike Grove, Founder & VP of Engineering, Stardog ••• Michael has more than 15 years of experience in AI, semantic technology and graph databases. Prior to Stardog, Michael performed research at Fujitsu Labs of America on the use of graph-based technologies in pervasive computing environments.

    Adelante Studios, 3rd Floor, Studio 6+7

    ••• Stream Processing Beyond Streaming with Apache Flink ••• presented by Stephan Ewen, Co-Creator of Apache Flink and CTO & Co-Founder, Ververica (formerly data Artisans) 🐿️ Free swag, hard drinks, caviar, cheeses & fun foods + win a Flybrix Arduino Octocopter Deluxe Kit! 🐿️ A Database Month event http://www.DBMonth.com/database/apache-flink In this fun-filled event, we will take a look at the latest developments in stream processing from the view of Apache Flink, and discuss how stream processing is outgrowing its original space of real-time data processing. Stream processing is rapidly maturing into a technology for enabling new approaches to general data processing with use cases that include batch processing, real-time applications and distributed transactions. We will discuss how Flink implements its approach to "stream processing beyond streaming" and illustrate it by example, demonstrating streaming SQL in Apache Flink, showing how ANSI SQL works across batch and streaming use cases including features such as temporal joins and complex event processing that help make typical applications easier to model. This is a new approach to distributed transactions that makes it possible to use stream processing for fast cross-shard transactions with ACID serializability. We will also discuss real-world use-cases of companies that are applying this broader streaming paradigm in practice. Finally, we will discuss the latest features of Apache Flink, as well as the current roadmap and upcoming features such as building a unified batch/streaming machine learning library. We will also cover how Apache Flink is building the world's first true streaming runtime that will compete at batch processing with the best current batch processor packages. ••• Stephan Ewen, Co-Creator of Apache Flink and CTO & Co-Founder, Ververica (formerly data Artisans) ••• Stephan Ewen is an Apache PMC member and one of the original creators of Apache Flink, and Co-Founder of Ververica (formerly data Artisans) Within the Apache Flink community, Stephan works on the overall vision of a unified approach to batch processing, stream processing, and event-driven applications, including runtime, APIs, and new approaches to fault tolerance and transactional consistency.
