Batch data warehousing is disappearing. Typical batch data warehouses are updated every 24 hours or even less frequently. Most warehouse users want more timely information. The velocity of business, the 24 hour-a-day Internet, and the "follow the sun" behavior of international enterprises generally means that 24 hour latency is not good enough.

In this webinar, Bloor Research's Philip Howard will review the continuum of low latency applications ranging from milliseconds to minutes and discuss the technical challenges of data warehousing in these environments.


Issues to be covered include:

  • Types of applications requiring low latency
  • How to overcome the inverse relationship between the quantity of data to be loaded and the achievable latency
  • Query and analytic requirements of low latency applications
  • Database structures and features to support low latency analytics

WHEN:  Wednesday, January 20, 2010 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. ET
