Twenty years ago we were just learning how to hook up the new Java language to our relational database to run queries. Five years later and the first IMDGs are starting to appear on the scene and things get faster. Another 5 years and we get NoSQL, finally we can get rid of the ORM, NoSQL works nicely with IMDGs too. Then comes Hadoop and for some bizarre reason we start to see ORM coming back – something’s wrong. Spark has made some improvements over Hadoop but where are we now with this mess?
John will explore the data aggregation and analytics scene, where should you be going, how do these technologies fit and where the future might lie. Some coverage of the technologies combined with a little code and a demo of some very high performance in-memory analytics.
