Business Intelligence SIG: Relational Messaging



  • Title:
    A new solution to an old problem: How Relational Messaging solves Data and Application Integration

    Today's enterprise systems are extremely complex. Solving business problems often involves as much effort moving data between systems as processing data within them, and business goals require that information is propagated with ever lower latency. The integration problems have diverse requirements, leading to a spectrum of solutions ranging from traditional batch-mode ETL, real-time BI, to message-oriented and service-oriented architectures. Unfortunately, these point-to-point solutions soon congeal into a web of "legacy integration applications"
    which are as difficult to maintain as the applications they are integrating.

    A new approach, inspired by research into streaming databases, is Relational Asynchronous Messaging (RAM). The RAM approach brings the power and simplicity of SQL to bear on the problems of managing dynamic distributed data. The talk will present an overview of the RAM architecture, and how RAM can be used to solve particular problems involving real-time mediation between operational systems, and how RAM can enable real-time BI.

    Julian Hyde is a founder and the Chief Architect of SQLstream, Inc., a platform for Relational Asynchronous Messaging, and is an expert on relational query optimization and execution, ETL and OLAP.

    Before SQLstream, Julian led the design of the query optimizer and execution engine of the Broadbase DBMS and ETL engine at Broadbase Software (now KANA Software). He was an engineer at Oracle for 6 years, working on text search and bitmap indexes in the Oracle kernel.

    Julian is also the founder and lead developer of Mondrian, the leading open-source OLAP engine, and part of the Pentaho open-source BI Suite. He holds a BA in Computer Science from Cambridge University. England.
