This presentation is part of the "Executive Summit":https://conferences.oreilly.com/strata/strata2011/public/schedule/detail/17165.
There has been an explosion in database technology designed to handle big data and deep analytics from both established vendors and startups. This session will provide a quick tour of the primary technology innovations and systems powering the analytic database landscape — from data warehousing appliances and columnar databases to massively parallel processing and in-memory technology. The goal is to help you understand the strengths and limitations of these alternatives and how they are evolving so you can select technology that is best suited to your organization and needs.
