Webinar next week on data warehouse appliances for Location Intelligence

I have posted previously about Netezza, who make data warehouse appliances, which can perform certain types of complex spatial analysis from 10x to 100x faster than traditional systems - I did some consulting for them last year. On Thursday next week I am speaking in a free webinar hosted by Directions Magazine and sponsored by Netezza, on the topic of data warehouse appliances for Location Intelligence. My talk will include the following topics:
  • One enterprise DBMS?
  • Data warehousing concepts
  • Data warehouse appliances
  • New possibilities for geospatial applications
On the subject of "one enterprise DBMS" I get to re-use the following slide, which I first used a (slightly different) version of back in 1993 or so when talking about Smallworld's VMDS database ... it's good to have a little material that can last that long in these times of rapid change :) !
One size fits all
The other main speaker will be Shajy Mathay from reinsurance company Guy Carpenter, who have been doing some very interesting things with Netezza - Shajy gave a very interesting presentation at the Netezza User Conference and I look forward to hearing what he has to say.
