From November 9 – 14 I will be visiting one of the most charming cities on the planet when I attend the International DB2 Users Group (IDUG) conference in Prague, CZ.  I will present “IBM Data Retrieval Technologies : RDBMS, BLU, IBM Netezza and Hadoop”.  It will be session E7 on Tuesday, November 11 from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m.  Please consider attending IDUG Europe and joining me at this session.

Abstract:  IBM offers four distinct data retrieval technologies: the traditional RDBMS, which primarily relies on indexes to speed access; the new BLU Acceleration columnar compression database; IBM PureData System for Analytics (IBM Netezza), which deploys racks of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processors to parse the data; and IBM InfoSphere BigInsights, which is the IBM distribution of Hadoop. Choices are good to have, but how do you choose which technology to apply to a particular business use case? In this session, you learn how these techniques differ, including their relative strengths and weaknesses, to help you make an informed choice.
