Business Intelligence/Data Warehouse Special Interest Group

Innovations in Database Technology

Bob Newell will present an innovative database product which enables fast analytic query on large dataset with the low Total Cost of Ownership. The technology applies mathematical theory, typically used for data mining, to the data warehouse problem. The result is a column store database, with high compression, which provides fast query response but without the overhead of creating and managing indexes. The talk will discuss how performance can be achieved on multi-Terabyte databases without data partitioning, without changing the physical data model, and without incurring hardware costs of a database appliance or an MPP solution.

Since 1992 Bob has focused on helping companies implement Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse applications in various industry sectors such as Retail, Financial, and Manufacturing. As an independent consultant, Bob has been engaged by big six consulting firms such as Deloitte Consulting, Accenture and IBM Global Services to provide leadership and direction for large Data Warehouse projects.
