Many organizations have adopted agile development processes to accelerate their application projects. However, the database underlying these applications is often a major obstacle to success with agile development.
On Wednesday, May 8, at 9:00am PT I’ll be taking part in a webinar with Delphix to discuss incompatibilities between relational databases and agile methodologies, potential use and applicability of new database systems, and methods for achieving greater success in applying agile methods to database-driven development.
In particular I’ll be discussing:
- Agile development overview
- Relational databases and agile development
- Agile as a driver for alternative databases
- Agility and consistency – the best of both worlds?

Next Tuesday, May 7, I’ll be taking part in a webinar with MemSQL at 10am PST to discuss real-time big data analytics.
Although much of the focus of big data relates to volume, the velocity of data – combined with increased frequency of analysis – is driving requirements for real-time analytics so enterprises can drive new business opportunities and create a competitive advantage.
I’ll be discussing the forces driving the emergence of ‘operational intelligence’ as a means of generating real-time insight into how a business is performing, and will be joined by MemSQL CEO, Erik Frenkiel.
Between us we will discuss how to:
- Scale an in-memory analytics solution for sub-second responses on terabytes of real-time and recent historical data.
- Reduce time-to-value by using existing SQL skills for real-time analytics.
- Solve real-time Big Data analytics challenges such as network security, operational analytics, risk management and marketing campaign optimization.
- Leverage real-time operational intelligence to make data-driven decisions.
- Minimize costs with horizontal scale-out on commodity hardware.

On Tuesday March 26th at 10am PT I’ll be taking part in a webinar with NuoDB on the subject of The New Path to Performance. No Sharding!
As part of the webinar I’ll be explaining the various strategies used by enterprises to attempt to achieve scalability of relational databases, why they fail to meet modern distributed processing requirements, and why companies are increasingly open to looking at alternatives to the traditional relational database.
Wiqar Chaudry from NuoDB will also be discussing how to eliminate technical acrobatics, including:
And other kinds of 20th century database tricks.

On February 28 at 1pm EST I’ll be taking part in a webinar, sponsored by ScaleBase, on strategies for scaling MySQL.
Scalability is one of the primary drivers we’ve seen for database users considering alternatives to traditional relational databases. That could mean adopting an entirely new database for new projects or – more likely for existing applications – looking at various strategies for improving the scalability of an existing database.
During the webinar I will be joined by Doron Levari and Paul Campaniello, both from ScaleBase, which enables applications to scale without disruption to the existing infrastructure. We’ll be discussing, amongst other things:
- Scaling-out your MySQL databases
- New high availability strategies
- Centrally managing a distributed MySQL environment

On December 13 at 1pm EDT/10AM PDT I’ll be taking part in a webinar to discuss Big Data Best Practices – Realizing True Business Value from Your Big Data.
Big Data has rapidly become a transformational business trend. Most business leaders understand that not being able to tap into the power of their Big Data could mean losing business to the competition. However, most organizations are not fully aware of how to embrace it.
I’ll discuss how you can overcome these hurdles and tap into your Big Data to transform your business, while Naren Patil, SVP of Product Marketing, NGDATA will provide some real-life examples of successful deployment projects.

On Tuesday, November 13 at 12pm ET I’ll be taking part in a webinar in association with ScaleBase on the subject of Choosing a Next-Gen Database: The new world order of NoSQL, NewSQL & MySQL.
With the database market becoming increasing complex and changing on an almost daily basis, I’ll be providing an overview of this ever-changing market: discussing the benefits and drawbacks of NoSQL, NewSQL & MySQL databases and exploring real-life use cases for each.
Joining me will be Doron Levari and Paul Campaniello, both from ScaleBase, who will be discussing specific use cases of ScaleBase’s Data Traffic Manager, which is designed to enable next generation applications that require big data transactional processing, without changing the existing infrastructure.

On Wednesday July 18 at 10am PT I’ll be taking part in a webinar in association with Calpont discussing the rise of analytic platforms. Here are the details:
The data management landscape is changing rapidly as users adopt new data management technologies and data-analysis approaches to cope with and exploit the increasing volume, variety and velocity of ‘big data.’ While traditional data warehouses are ideal for predictable queries against structured data, and Hadoop and its peers are optimized for new and unexpected queries against unstructured data, a third class of technologies has emerged that aims to split the difference.
Join 451 Group Research Manager Matt Aslett and Calpont VP of Engineering Bob Wilkinson for this 45 min webinar to learn about:
- How the analytic platform emerged and its place in the data management ecosystem
- Trends in analytic platforms and what to look for when considering one
- Real world use cases of InfiniDB, Calpont’s analytic platform, in telecommunications and online advertising

The initial focus of ‘big data’ has been about its increasing volume, velocity and variety — the “three Vs” — with little mention of real world application. Now is the time to get down to business.
On Wednesday, May 30, at 9am PT I’ll be taking part in a webinar with Splunk to discuss real world successes with ‘big data’.
451 Research believes that in order to deliver value from ‘big data’, businesses need to look beyond the nature of the data and re-assess the technologies, processes and policies they use to engage with that data.
I will outline 451 Research’s ‘total data’ concept for delivering business value from ‘big data’, providing examples of how companies are seeking agile new data management technologies, business strategies and analytical approaches to turn the “three Vs” of data into actionable operational intelligence.
I’ll be joined by Sanjay Mehta, Vice President of Product Marketing at Splunk, which was founded specifically to focus on the opportunity of effectively getting value from massive and ever changing amounts of machine-generated data, one of the fastest growing and most complex segments of ‘big data’.
Sanjay will share big data achievements from three Splunk customers, Groupon, Intuit and CenturyLink. Using Splunk, these companies are turning massive volumes of unstructured and semi-structured machine data into powerful insights.

Cloud computing and big data are two of the hottest topics in the industry today, which makes cloud databases a particularly hot prospect for 2012. What is a cloud database, however? On Thursday, December 15 at 12:00pm EST I’ll be taking part in a webinar with Karen Tegan Padir, Vice President of Products and Marketing, EnterpriseDB on the subject of cloud computing and true cloud databases.
In this webcast, you’ll get an overview of the current state of cloud database computing, and more specifically the differences between cloud databases and databases in the cloud. I’ll be providing an overview of the functional requirements that separate databases running in the public cloud, and databases that will be used to power private and hybrid clouds.
Then Karen will provide an overview and demonstration of Postgres Plus Cloud Server, which provides DaaS for PostgreSQL databases and went into public beta earlier this week.
