Data silos are slowing companies down. You may have a ton of information available, but are your decision makers using the right data? Can they even access it? Extracting insight from large data sets can be difficult – especially when that data is spread out across your entire organization.

[If] “I stub my toe, then my arm goes up and my ear hurts!”

As another example, most...

This month, we’re heading out to the AWS Lofts in San Francisco and New York City to discuss how to move the right data to Amazon Web Services at the right time, using Attunity CloudBeam .

Next week I join the Attunity Gold Client team and thousands of SAP professionals from across Europe who will be descending on Barcelona to take part at the SAP TechEd in Spain. Hot on the heels of last month’s SAP TechEd in Las Vegas, Europe’s 2015 host city might not have as many casinos and dancing fountains, but it is filled with quirky art and architecture, and a vibrant Spanish street scene, including tasty Tapas bars and Las Ramblas. This is a tremendous opportunity to share, collaborate, network and gain access to SAP subject matter experts.

Our clients tell us that...

Microsoft has empowered businesses to create, share and capitalize on data for most of four decades.

And we have partnered with Microsoft for more than 20 years, including a decade of collaboration on SQL Server. So I’m especially excited to discuss data management best practices with our customers at the annual SQL Pass conference this week.

We understand that as you adopt hybrid cloud environments, you need full mobility to analyze the right data in the right place at the right time. You might need some workloads on premise, using Microsoft Analytics Platform with SQL and...

This is the first in a series of blogs that examine how Fortune 500 companies use Attunity Visibility to manage their data more effectively. Part One tells the story of a multinational pharmaceutical firm.

Pharmaceutical companies face a lot of pressure from a lot of directions – competitors, customers and regulators. Every decision, whether it relates to R&D, FDA applications or the release and promotion of a new drug, must be grounded on data.

As we met with this global pharmaceutical company and learned about their requirements, we got an...

Many of us are familiar with Apache Hadoop MapReduce, but what do we know about Apache Spark? More importantly, why should your enterprise learn more about the Spark execution framework?

Spark is an open-source, general-purpose engine for large-scale data processing. Spark supports rapid application development for big data and allows for code reuse across batch, interactive and streaming applications. Spark also provides advanced execution graphs with in-memory pipelining to speed up end-to-end application performance. Spark’s speed improvement over...
