BI and analytics are at the top of corporate agendas. Competition is intense, and, more than ever, organizations are demanding faster access to insights about their customers, markets, and internal operations to make better decisions. However, they are also facing challenges in powering real-time business analytics and systems of engagement. Analytic applications and systems of engagement need to be fast and consistent, but traditional database approaches, including RDBMS and first-generation NoSQL solutions, can be challenging to maintain, and costly, according to Aerospike CTO and co-founder Brian Bulkowski in a presentation at Data Summit 2017.

The tide is changing for analytics architectures. Traditional approaches, from the data warehouse to the data lake, implicitly assume that all relevant data can be stored in a single, centralized repository. But this approach is slow and expensive, and sometimes not even feasible, because some data sources are too big to be replicated, and data is often too distributed to make a "full centralization" strategy successful.
