Big Data Bits: MongoDB Edition + There's a Prize Inside

2014-03-July-Prize-Inside.jpgSmall pieces loosely joined in a non-zero sum world.

Write that phrase down and wrap your brain around it because that’s how the vendors who are shaping computing’s next platform are thinking. It’s not about “I win, you lose,” but about how well we can play and build something together.

And though that idea was verbalized by Cloudera founder Mike Olson (who borrowed from David Weinbereger’s book "Small Pieces Loosely Joined") at MongoDB World this week, we got an idea of how it might play out in computing’s third era as we watched MongoDB’s customers talk about game-changing solutions they built leveraging the world’s leading NoSQL database and other leading and emerging technologies.

Databricks' Spark Could Light SAP's Fire

2014-2-July-light-my-fire.jpg

SAP HANA seems to have taken a bit of a public beating lately, namely because its creator, Vishal Sikka, and several other notable executives left the company.

And while some might speculate the Guinness World Record setting in-memory database has had its best days, there are very few facts to support that contention. In fact, we say the best may be yet to come.

After all, SAP HANA hasn’t yet infiltrated most Enterprises and SAP, as a whole, has become no holds barred, cloud-bound only lately.

Will MapR Be the First Hadoop Vendor to IPO?

2014-30-June-Wall-Street-Bull.jpgGoogle Capital doesn’t invest in that many companies, in fact, before today there were only six.

And when do they invest, they’re hardly silent partners.

“We have the capability to use our money, our time, our effort, our expertise, our brain power, and the Google brand to help build great companies,” said David Drummond, chairman of Google Capital. Drummond is also Google’s senior vice president, Corporate Development and Chief Legal Officer.

While that statement doesn’t tell us much about how quickly Google Capital expects to realize a return on its investments, the particular partner they assign to a startup may be telling.

This morning Gene Frantz, a general partner at Google Ventures, who specializes in late stage startups, takes a seat on MapR’s board.

MapR, for anyone who doesn’t already know, is a San Jose, Calif.-based enterprise software company that develops and sells Apache Hadoop-derived software.

Digital Ad Alliance Boss: We Can Police Ourselves

2014-30-June-padlock-on-a-vintage-door.jpg

The biggest challenge in mobile marketing may not be what the technology can do, but how the benefits of data-driven ads affect the privacy of the consumers they target.

Much has been said about the "creepy" factor of compiling information about your kids, location, financing and health. At the same time, studies show 70 percent of consumers prefer to see ads that align with their personal interest. 

Lou Mastria, executive director of the Digital Advertising Alliance, has been at the eye of the privacy hurricane for years while working in public affairs, government and the ad industry. He also holds a masters degree in public policy. In his current role, he reflects his industry-backed group's push for self-regulation of advertising practices. He's had plenty of success.

Nuxeo Platform Integrates MongoDB #MongoDBWorld

You don't have to look any further than the lines of people waiting to get into MongoDB's first user conference in New York City today to understand the popularity of the NoSQL database. So it's not surprising that savvy companies are trying to get in on the action.

Take Nuxeo, for instance. The open source content management system (CMS) just integrated its platform with MongoDB to offer "high performance, availability and scalability of content centric business applications." 

Here's What You're Missing at #MongoDBWorld

2014-24-june-mongodb-world.jpg

MongoDB is not your daddy’s database, and you probably didn’t learn it in college.

But chances are good if you work just about anywhere in the next few years, you’ll find it there. Ok, maybe not everywhere, but at least in 75 percent of enterprises, said Dwight Merriman, the company’s chairman.

If that sounds ambitious, it’s reasonably well-grounded. Consider there have been more than 7 million downloads of the Open Source database, that 10,000 plus are participating “in the product” in meetups, user groups and such, and that the company has over 500 partners including some pretty notable vendors like IBM, Teradata and SAP, as well as other up and comers like Cloudera, Pentaho and Red Hat.

MongoDB has come from its initial release in 2009 to become the fifth largest database in the world according to DB-Engines, just behind PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.

What’s its goal? “We want to become the leading database in the world,” says Merriman. “But that will take time.”

How To Cope With Anonymous Site Visitors

Digital channels are the best way to expand your customer base and reach new audiences in an instant. And we know that personalized marketing messages increase conversions via digital. But how do you personalize marketing content online for a prospect you know nothing about?

On average, 98 percent of visitors to a website are anonymous. These visitors don’t share contact information, and marketers don’t know anything about their demographics, preferences or interests.

That means 98 percent of your potential customer base is a mystery. What’s more, a brand’s website audience constantly changes as new campaigns are introduced, making it even more difficult for marketers to know exactly who is visiting a site at any time.

For marketers, anonymized site visitors make it infinitely harder to engage potential leads in a meaningful way and expand a customer base. Uncovering information about these audiences and anonymous leads, which can help marketers craft personalized marketing messages, is the holy grail.

Big Data Bits: We're Hooking-Up, But That's Not All

2014-20-june-big-data-bits.jpg

Does an alliance or partnership between two tech companies have as much impact as a new software release? We wonder if anyone has ever done the calculations. If so, please share.

As for us, we’ve taken our valuation hats off for the day to report on the big data and analytics news, which is all about (surprise!) new alliances, new capabilities and new releases.

These Trends are Driving Structured Data Archiving

The growing use of Apache Hadoop, increasing data warehouse volume sizes and the accumulation of legacy systems in organizations are all factors fostering structured data growth. To manage it, organizations are being forced to look at data archiving and how to get non essential data out of mainstream enterprise applications.

The findings appear in Gartner’s first Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving. This is the first time that Gartner has produced such a Magic Quadrant, which features 13 vendors in total including the four leaders.

While many enterprises are yet to embrace data migration and archiving, Gartner estimates that migration will represent about 20 percent of all information governance projects. To help enterprises do this, four vendors have emerged as the leaders in the archiving space: HP, IBM, Informatics, and Solix.

In this article, we will explore this quadrant and take a look at emerging trends and the market in general. In a second article, we'll take a deeper look at the leaders and what they are offering.

Why It's Intelligent for Birst to Sit on HANA

Thumbnail image for 2014-6-19 Birst SAP HANA.jpg

Many things spring to mind when you think SAP HANA. You may think depth and speed. You may also think user difficulty or even lengthy deployment times.

One thing you don’t think is agility. Cloud-based business intelligence (BI) vendor Birst aims to change that with this week’s announcement that it is now possible to integrate Birst with HANA.
