Re: Data Visualization At Big Data Scale
I have to caution that I have not worked with the technology. For many organizations it might replace server-driven visualizations. But certainly that will depend on the amount of data you're slicing.

Re: Data Visualization At Big Data Scale
Michael, this is fascinating technology. Do you feel this replaces the need for a visual analytics infrastructure that allows for in-memory processing of visualizations at the server level or would serve as a complement to that?

Re: Data Visualization At Big Data Scale
I would like to echo your point here. Nanocube is not just a relief to those CIOs who do not want to add extra hardware for big data analytics but it's an evangelization to those individuals who would like to use their laptop to peep into the big data in hand. Without bothering to set up the complete big data infrastruture, you can make your laptop self-contained for big data importing and real-time analysis, which is especially good fo personal use and small business.

Re: Data Visualization At Big Data Scale
Nanocubes may appeal not only to CIOs who want to do analysis projects without adding server infrastructure, but also to people looking to do a little rogue IT data anlaysis.

Re: Data Visualization At Big Data Scale
Thanks, Doug, for the recomendations. I too, will be intersted to see how widely used it becomes. I suspect it will get adopted, because it's an inexpensive way to get through a lot of data.

Data Visualization At Big Data Scale
To really understand this in detail you have to watch the YouTube Video and possibly download the whitepaper (links to both provided), but the idea is akin to the drill-down analysis you can do in a good dydnamic data visualization tool. As you zoom in, you get the level of detail you're after in RAM -- not all 46 Petabytes. It's a neat zooming trick and I'll be interested to see if the technology gains adoption beyond AT&T labs.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
