Metadata Driven Architecture


Most Big Data isn’t really so “big,” but may be regarded as such by virtue of being platformed in Hadoop, MongoDB, or other Big Data environments – there are actually some environments dealing with 5, 10, 20, even 50 Petabytes or more. Extremely large domain complex environments are problematic for traditional large scale and rational solutions like Teradata and IBM/Netezza, with other challenging issues for NoSQL solutions like Hadoop, MongoDB, and Cassandra – all leaving companies struggling to cope with this vast amount of data within their already strained infrastructures. Gaining insight from these super large complex environments requires companies to abandon conventional ways of ingesting and interrogating data, and instead to re-think their goals in order to achieve actionable insight within a useful timeframe. Providing guidance for companies to address this need, Don DeLoach will explore the use of background generated metadata and the ability to produce highly valid approximate answers with orders of magnitude, and with less time and resources, illustrated by use-cases in security network intrusion detection, digital media audience profiling, and high frequency trading algorithm development.
