WEBINAR: Real-Time Data Ingestion and Streaming Analytics with Oracle and Hortonworks

November 24th, 2016 at 10am BST / 11am CEST


Organizations today are looking to exploit modern Data Architectures that combine the power and scale of Big Data Hadoop platforms with operational data from their Transactional Systems. In order to react to situations in an agile manner in real-time, low-latency
access to data is essential.

Hortonworks and Oracle can provide comprehensive solutions that allow organisations to respond rapidly to data events.



During this webinar we will cover:

  • How Oracle GoldenGate empowers organisations to capture,route, and deliver transactional data from Oracle and non-Oracle databases for ingestion in real-time to HDP :registered:.
  • How GoldenGate complements HDF providing optimised delivery to Hadoop targets such as HDFS, Hive, Hbase, NoSQL, Kafka, to support customers with their real-time big data analytics initiatives.
  • How Oracle GoldenGate enables uses cases for analysis of data in motion

Attend this webinar to learn how Hortonworks and Oracle can help you with your real-time big data analytics and streaming initiatives!


Can you trust your Enterprise Data? Where is it? What is it? Where did it come from?

Presented by Embarcadero Technologies and Informed Decisions

Organisations face continued significant growth in complexity, diversity and volume of enterprise data with more and more companies worldwide understanding that data governance offers the only strategic solution to this challenge. Enterprises drowning in data and disconnected from trusted data repositories need to break out of organisational silos and re-establish adequate coordination and controls. Metadata Modelling, Governance & Syndication technology enables collaborative content development and effective access to your Enterprise Information Map, the authoritative guide to an organisation’s information assets. By providing greater insight into the location, meaning and proper use of enterprise data, organisations can improve corporate data compliance and utilisation. Business users can now locate, interpret, and accurately utilise data as an enterprise asset thereby adding real value to the business. This workshop explores these issues and provides a pragmatic approach to resolve modern data architecture challenges.

HakkanJulian Clemas-Howard: Betfair
Julian has nearly 20 years of Data Architecture and Management experience providing his services to most of the UK’s Mobile Telecommunications companies as well as organisations in the Insurance and Utilities sectors. He was part of the team that bought Virgin Mobile to the market as the first MVNO in the UK; it was here that he developed his passion for Data Warehousing and where he developed his first Enterprise Logical Data Model. He considers himself very much as a ‘hands-on’ architect, equally at home in the boardroom as embedded in a Scrum team. Julian believes that data warehousing is even more important today as organisations are moving away from traditional ‘monolith’ data warehouses to a more distributed landscape where agility (in all its guises) is the new frontier for Data practitioners.

Big Data – debunking some of the myths and unlocking value

London 19 March 2015 – techUK

Embarcadero invites you to a breakfast briefing, which will examine some complexity around Big Data and what it really means. Many vendors claim almost magical capabilities for their ‘Big Data’ products, but the reality is that successful analysis comes down to understanding your algorithms and understanding your data. Learn how data modelling is integral to this. Chris’s presentation will be followed by an overview of Embarcadero’s support for Big Data and a short demonstration of this capability.

BigData Support: DBArtisan & RapidSQL Technology Preview

Recently I got the opportunity to have a tinker with our BigData Technology preview for DBArtisan and RapidSQL.

I was able to simply and easily register some of the BigData appliances I have installed, including, MapR, Hortonworks, Cloudera plus others.

BigData0One of the ways we have achieved this is by including the necessary JDBC drivers to connect to these platforms.

We support these platforms by going in via the Apache Hadoop Hive layer, and support Object Browsing and SQL querying through the support of HiveQL.

BigData1If anybody is interested in registering for the technology preview please contact us via the relevant support channels here.

Webinar: Data Modeling for Big Data & NoSQL Technologies with Karen Lopez

Since data modeling became a mainstream development technique, our work has focused primarily on data modeling for relational databases. Then came data warehouse and dimensional modeling. Now we have both transactional and analytical non-relational solutions to support as well. Where does data modeling fit into these projects? Where do models come into play if they are rooted in relational notations and processes?

In this webinar, Karen Lopez of InfoAdvisors will cover 10 tips for the modern data architect and resources for coming up to speed on these new approaches. She will share how modern data modeling approaches address both SQL (relational) and NoSQL technologies. We’ll look at the role of a data modeler, and how models, processes and data governance processes can add value to enterprise big data and NoSQL development projects.
