Actian’s retreat from data warehousing forces ParAccel/Matrix owners to find a viable, supported platform for their workloads - but without the usual time or budget set aside for such a project because the announcement was a surprise and the timeline is so short (support ends April 30).

In the following decades, events became so popular that the Bureau of International Expositions formed in 1928 to oversee the calendar and consistency of expos.

Strata+Hadoop World (Spring Edition) is just around the corner. This year, I’m speaking about best practices for enterprise adoption of the cloud for big data. Along the way, I’ll share some real-world stories from our collaborations with enterprises. The cloud project that looked easy, started great, and eventually took three years to production? My colleagues call it the IT zombie apocalypse. The innocent analyst who inadvertently caused the $57,650 AWS bill? Funny, if they’re not on your team.

You always remember your first…database. You didn’t quite know what you were doing and it was a bit awkward, but you figured it out and eventually ran your first query.  Whether you built it, maintained it, used it or cursed it, I'm guessing that you have at least one memorable database in your past.
