Business Intelligence SIG: Real-Time Analytics at Salesforce.com
Title: Real-Time Analytics at Salesforce.com
Performing analytics on up to date data has been a customer demand for many years, but fulfilling this demand has proven to be extremely challenging. In fact, the common industry solution is to compromise on data latency and copy the data to a warehouse or mart for subsequent analytical query processing. Salesforce.com is bucking the warehousing trend by providing analytics on real-time data. This talk first describes the multi-tenant architecture of Salesforce.com. It then discusses the challenges and techniques of achieving real-time operational reporting and business intelligence.
