Upcoming Webinars

In this webinar Ryan Betts, CTO at VoltDB, will explain why streaming aggregation is a key to streaming analytics. He will also address how SQL can be used in combination with streaming aggregation, and the benefits of up-to-date analytics for per-event transactions and insights.

Past Webinars

VoltDB and Emagine Present: How Fast Data Produces Profit: Personalizing Customer Engagement for CSPs

Presented by David Peters, CEO, Emagine and Peter Vescuso, CMO, VoltDB. The modern telecommunications data center environment must cater to billions of high frequency events daily. For Communications Service Providers, (CSPs), capturing the attention of customers by using this data for personalizing customer interactions, campaigns and loyalty programs is the difference between achieving a competitive advantage and increased profitability and slipping behind. Customers now expect more personalized content and offers at the right place, at the right time using the right channel. They will gladly go to competitors for better offers or a better customer experience.

VoltDB and Full 360 Present: How a Fast Real-Time Database Helps a $2B Loyalty Program Launch Campaigns in Days Rather than Months

Presented by Rusty Ross, Solutions Architect, Full 360, Inc. and Ryan Betts, CTO, VoltDB. Technology and especially data infrastructure used to convert raw data into business value can provide this competitive advantage. The pressure is on to build a smarter, flexible infrastructure that more effectively taps data for customer engagement and loyalty. In this webinar VoltDB and Full 360 present a case study of the fast data infrastructure developed for one of the largest and most successful loyalty programs in the world.

Addressing Fast Data and the New Enterprise Data Architecture

Big Data is transforming the way enterprises interact with information, but that’s only half the story. The real innovations are happening at the intersection of Fast Data and Big Data. Why? Because data is fast before it’s big. Fast Data is generated by the explosion of data created by mobile devices, sensor networks, social media and connected devices – the Internet of Things (IoT).

How to Simplify the Lambda Architecture

Presented by VoltDB Software Engineer, John Hugg. What is Lambda? The architecture is designed to handle massive quantities of data by taking advantage of both batch- and stream-processing methods. The problem? It’s complicated and resource intensive. Learn how to improve the Lambda architecture by reducing the number of moving pieces, the products and components needed.

Integrating Fast and Big Data Solutions for Streaming Applications

Writing applications on top of streaming data requires both scalable high throughput event processing, as well as efficient large volume storage. At scale, this requires combining best-in-class tools to create a complete solution. Real-time applications and the increasingly fast data streams created by personalized devices, IoT, and M2M, exceed the processing and storage capacity of legacy databases.

Fast Data and Real-Time Analytics in Telecom – Enhancing Customer Engagement

VoltDB CTO, Ryan Betts and Flytxt CTO, Prateek Kapadia discuss how the modern telecommunications data center environment must cater to billions of high frequency events daily. Technology and Business teams are faced with a challenge to architect and manage analytics platforms that extract optimum value from these event streams. Combining fast data with the advanced big data analytics through mining large volumes of historical data is increasingly becoming a key technology enabler for competitive differentiation and sustained economic value generation. Tapping into the value of data in real-time – the moment it arrives – is a significant opportunity but it requires the ability to track billions of events, generate real-time triggers from those billions of events reflecting the contextual usage and deviation in defined behavior, as well as to take right action at right time through the right channel instantaneously.

How to Build Streaming Data Applications: Evaluating the Top Contenders

Building applications on streaming data has its challenges. If you’re a developer trying to use programs like Apache Spark or Storm to build apps, this webinar will explain the benefits and downfalls of each solution and how to choose the right tool for your next streaming data project.

The Fast Data Stack: An Architecture for Real Real-Time Decision Making

A software stack is emerging for streaming data applications that process high velocity flows of data in motion, or “fast data.” Similar to the LAMP stack for web servers, the Fast Data Stack describes what’s needed to meet the requirements for fast data applications: to grab real-time data and output recommendations, decisions and analyses in milliseconds. Listen as Ryan Betts describes the architecture of the Fast Data Stack which include ingestion, real-time analytics and decisions, and data export. He’ll explain how new applications can benefit from this architecture when processing real-time data, and providing decisions and analyses in milliseconds.

Big Data, Fast Data: The Need for In-Memory Database Technology

In this webcast, CMO Peter Vescuso and Dr. Michael Stonebraker discuss the new corporate data architecture and the necessary technology components for facing this data management challenge. Listen as they discuss the “one-size-never-fits-all” perspective for developing the ideal architecture for managing, and maximizing the value of fast, big data in your organization.

Building Fast Data Applications With Streaming Data

Listen to CTO Ryan Betts as he explains how stream processing was not designed to serve the needs of modern Fast Data applications. Employing a solution that handles streaming data, provides state, ensures durability, and supports transactions and real-time decisions is key to benefitting from fast data.
