Big Data

The well-known three Vs of Big Data - Volume, Variety, and Velocity – are increasingly placing pressure on organizations that need to manage this data as well as extract value from this data deluge for Predictive Analytics and Decision-Making. Big Data technologies, services, and tools such as Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive and NoSQL/NewSQL databases and Data Integration techniques, In-Memory approaches, and Cloud technologies have emerged to help meet the challenges posed by the flood of Web, Social Media, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) data flowing into organizations.

Recently, the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directions (MiFID II) launched in the EU. The sweeping regulatory changes will impact transaction reporting on all financial instruments traded in Europe and affect all U.S. firms that do business with European counterparts or customers.

Data-driven organizations rely on analytic databases—which are often in the cloud—to load, store, and analyze volumes of data at high speed to derive timely, actionable insights. However, data volumes within modern organizations' information ecosystems are rapidly expanding—placing significant performance demands on legacy architectures. To gain the full benefit of their data for competitive advantage, businesses need modern scalable architectures and high levels of performance and reliability to provide timely analytical insights.

More and more DBAs are being tasked with taking care of "non-relational" databases. In the past it was just Oracle or SQL Server that DBAs had to worry about. Now, platforms such as MongoDB and Cassandra are coming under the management of IT, requiring a new set of skills for existing teams. Jason Hall, senior systems consultant, Quest Software, explores familiar concepts DBAs are accustomed to, and how these concepts can translate to NoSQL platforms in his Data Summit 2018 session titled, "NoSQL Concepts for the Relational DBA."

The key to understanding AI's current and future impact is its transformation of business processes. A widespread misconception is that AI systems, including advanced robotics and digital bots, will gradually replace humans in one industry after another. Self-driving vehicles, for example, will one day replace taxi, delivery, and truck drivers. That may be true for certain jobs, but what we've found in our research is that, although AI can be deployed to automate certain functions, the technology's greater power is in complementing and augmenting human capabilities.

Data lake is a newer IT term created for a new category of data store. But just what is a data lake? According to IBM, "a data lake is a storage repository that holds an enormous amount of raw or refined data in native format until it is accessed." That makes sense. I think the most important aspect of this definition is that data is stored in its "native format." The data is not manipulated or transformed in any meaningful way; it is simply stored and cataloged for future use.

Moving to automation means many decisions and modifications will occur without human involvement. Alterations are likely to occur that are not to the benefit of the end user (we will not get this 100% right in its nascence). Data "owners" will need very good information about what was adjusted, when it changed, and whether it was ultimately good for the user experience. The right tools will be needed as uptime, resource consumption/capacity, and relative health become basic "pay-to-play" propositions managed by automation. As end user experience continues to trump all other concerns in the application world, taking the end user vantage point will be central to monitoring autonomous changes.

What's required are newer, specific safeguards that address the myriad of data challenges brought about by the digital age.
