SQLstream CEO Damian Black Explores the Cost of Real-time Big Data Performance at GigaOM Structure

“The Total Cost of Performance in a Massively Connected World” Session to be Presented at GigaOM Structure on June 19th at 4:55PM PST in San Francisco

San Francisco, CA | June 18, 2013

SQLstream Inc., a pioneer of the streaming Big Data engine for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that SQLstream CEO Damian Black has been invited to speak about the cost of achieving real-time performance from Big Data technologies at GigaOM’s Structure 2013, June 19-20.

Damian will be exploring the cost and technical limitations of generating real-time operational intelligence from different Big Data technologies. As data-management architectures evolve, each new technology looks to increase real-time visibility and reduce the latency-to-action and decision making. Yet technologies such as Hadoop have an associated cost and a practical performance limit beyond which real-time, high velocity distributed data management becomes unfeasible.

Held at Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF, and now in its sixth year, GigaOM Structure gathers data scientists, business leaders and investors interested to learn more about the emerging business opportunities for Cloud and Big Data. Structure 2013 will focus on how real-time business needs are shaping IT architectures, hyper-distributed infrastructure and creating a cloud that will look completely different from everything that’s come before. Damian will present The Total Cost of Performance in a Massively Connected World at 4:55PM PST on Wednesday, June 19.

Damian Black, was selected for his pioneering work in real-time and Big Data software and his commitment to reducing latency-to-action for business operations.  Black has participated in many GigaOM events, including the first ever Big Data panel session at GigaOM Structure 2008. “GigaOM has its finger on the pulse yet again with the focus on addressing real-time business needs from Big Data,” said Damian Black, SQLstream CEO. “The drive towards high velocity data coupled with low latency actions marks a new frontier for Big Data, one where the cost of performance is driving streaming data technology to the fore.”
