“Four For The Future: Upcoming Database Technologies” Session to be Held at GigaOM Structure:Data on March 21st at 4:40PM ET. San Francisco, CA | March 14, 2013 – SQLstream Inc., a pioneer of the streaming Big Data engine for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that SQLstream CEO Damian Black will speak about innovative real-time Big Data technologies at GigaOM’s Structure:Data 2013, March 20-21.

Held on Pier Sixty, The Chelsea Piers in New York, and now in its third year, Structure:Data  gathers data scientists, business leaders and investors interested to learn more about the emerging business opportunities for Cloud and Big Data. Damian will speak on the invitation-only panel session Four For The Future: Upcoming Database Technologies at 4:40PM ET on Thursday, March 21.

Damian will be discussing the emergence of SQL for Big Data, and more specifically, SQL as a streaming language for low-latency, real-time operational intelligence in a Hadoop environment. Damian was selected for the panel because of his pioneering work in real-time and Big Data software. SQLstream’s s-Streaming products transform log, sensor and other machine-generated data into streaming operational intelligence in real-time. Its core streaming Big Data architecture is built on a massively parallel platform for processing high velocity machine data. Streaming intelligence can be persisted, queried and replayed in Hadoop, with additional connectors to all major storage platforms and enterprise data warehouses if required.

SQLstream CEO Damian Black has participated in many GigaOM events, including the first ever Big Data panel session at GigaOM Structure 2008. “It’s always a pleasure to speak at a GigaOM and to engage with an audience at the forefront of Big Data,” said Damian Black. “Real-time is the next wave of Big Data, and SQLstream is the future of true real-time business decisions. Real-time is only a streaming SQL query away.”
