3 Trends that are Changing the World of Data

upside_tdwiIn my last post, I wrote about the new data integration requirements. In this post I wanted to share a few points made recently in a TDWI institute interview with SnapLogic founder and CEO Gaurav Dhillon when he was asked:

What are some of the most interesting trends you’re seeing in the BI, analytics, and data warehousing space?

There are three trends that I believe are fundamentally changing the world of data.

The first is the shift to the cloud. Rapid provisioning, ease of use, and cost are just a few of the drivers as data gravity continues to shift.

(Data gravity means that when a large data set is sitting in a large Hadoop or Splunk instance in an on-premises system, it doesn’t make sense to load all that data into the cloud to run analytics functions. Instead, one would ship the function to the data and return results. Being able to do this seamlessly can greatly simplify integration pipelines.)

Also driving this trend is the fact that cloud data warehousing and analytics have moved from rogue departmental use cases to enterprise deployments.

The second trend is the data lake and how to complement, extend — and in some cases replace — the traditional data warehouse with a reference architecture that is built to handle all new and future sources and enable more proactive and predictive analytics.

The third trend is the Internet of Things (IoT). It’s already happening today in some industries with data velocity, variety, and, of course, volume. What’s more important, though, is the kinds of analytics and insights that will become possible because of IoT sensors, wearables, and devices — once organizations figure out how to separate signal from noise through the right data management techniques.

He was also asked about the drivers for modern integration platforms, whether you call it iPaaS or HIP or something else:

  1. The end of the ETL and ESB cycle
  2. The need for speed
  3. Hybrid infrastructure

Be sure to check out the entire interview and share your feedback.

The Death of Traditional Integration

Recently I hosted a SnapLogic webinar featuring the company’s co-founder and CEO, Gaurav Dhillon, and industry analyst, author and practitioner David Linthicum called: The Death of Traditional Data Integration. The webinar was very well attended and the discussion was quite lively. I’ve posted sections of the transcript on the SnapLogic blog, you can also listen to the podcast on the company’s iTunes channel, and the slides are now on Slideshare. I’ve embedded the YouTube video below. Enjoy!

2015 Technology Predictions

I enjoy reviewing the predictions from technology pundits this time of year. I particularly appreciate it when industry analysts take the time to review their predictions from the previous year. Here are a few:

And kudos to Gartner’s Doug Laney for this post – A Look Back on My Information and Analytics Strategy Research from 2014, which also includes links to some of Gartners big data management predictions.

Speaking of predictions, here’s SnapLogic’s Gaurav Dhillon sharing a few of his predictions for 2015:

The Cloud Integration Dilemma for Enterprise IT

According to Gaurav Dhillon, CEO of SnapLogic, there’s not just an Innovator’s Dilemma hitting legacy technology vendors, there’s an Integrator’s Dilemma that the customers of traditional middleware and data integration providers are struggling with in the face of the today’s industry mega-trends. As he states:

“The dilemma for enterprise IT organizations is that their legacy integration technologies were built before the era of big data, social, mobile and cloud computing and simply can’t keep up.”

Here’s a video of Gaurav talking about the Integrator’s Dilemma:

Unfinished Business: Gaurav Dhillon Introduces @SnapLogic Integration Cloud

Gaurav Dhillon co-founded Informatica in 1992 and ran the company until 2004. In 2006 he co-founded SnapLogic, a data integration start-up in San Mateo, California. In 2010 he took over as the company’s Chairman and CEO and re-focused the company on tackling the emerging cloud data and application integration challenge in the enterprise.

Today SnapLogic introduced the SnapLogic Integration Cloud, with a focus on three key areas:

You can read more about the Winter 2014 release of the multi-tenant integration platform as a service (iPaaS) here. Here’s a video of Gaurav introducing the company out summarizing the importance of the right approach to cloud data and application integration in the API economy. He’s also presenting on that topic on a GigaOM webinar with David Linthicum later this week.
