Drawing upon this expertise, Ajay will be presenting a session entitled "Next-Generation Business Analytics in the Cloud" at Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York. His session is scheduled on Monday, April 19 at 5:30pm.

"As storage becomes more affordable, and large-scale data acquisition becomes increasingly common, there is interest from organizations to exploit these massive data sets for business analytics and enterprise-wide reporting," he writes. "However, a number of issues need to be addressed:

  • Information is stored in distributed silos with multiple formats, including databases, text files, spread sheets, etc.
  • Traditional data warehouses are limited in scalability, lack flexibility, and tend to be proprietary and expensive
  • It can take weeks to add a new data source to a custom datawarehouse, create a new dashboard, or change a hierarchy"

His session will examine cloud computing approaches for organizations to run business analytics on hundreds of terabytes of data from multiple sources (operational data, finance data, sales data, as well as external data on markets and customers), and enable business analysts to do rapid custom analytics and real time queries without relying on IT programmers to build reports and dashboards.
