Kyvos Insights’ Ajay Anand to Speak at Meetup on Breakthroughs in Business Intelligence on Big Data

To lead a Tech in Motion panel discussion in San Francisco on technologies and best practices to make BI perform on big data

LOS GATOS, Calif. – July 30, 2018 – Kyvos Insights, a big data analytics company, today announced that Ajay Anand, the company’s vice president of products and marketing, will participate in a complimentary meetup titled “Breakthroughs in BI on Big Data” held at Zillow in San Francisco.

The event will explore how information technology (IT) professionals can utilize breakthrough technologies to make their business intelligence (BI) systems and tools effectively perform in today’s rapidly evolving IT environments. BI is the leading big data use case for many organizations – a recent survey found that 70 percent of enterprises consider it the most important – but most BI tools can’t handle the scale of today’s data sets. Also, the performance of traditional SQL on Hadoop solutions decreases dramatically when numerous users query the same information at the same time.

As a result, despite significant investments in related infrastructure like data lakes, most organizations are not able to achieve the promise of their big data or empower business users to interactively uncover or utilize the insights within it. In fact, only 25 percent of respondents felt they are deriving substantial value from their big data investments, according Kyvos Insights’ research.

The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer period. Attendees will gain actionable information on how breakthrough innovations address these issues while empowering thousands of technical and business users to process, analyze and act on their big data simultaneously with nearly instantaneous responses times.

“Data volumes are growing rapidly and the speed with which insights are needed is accelerating,” said Anand. “Now it’s possible for thousands of concurrent users to analyze and query Big Data at massive scale with nearly instantaneous response times, on both on-premises infrastructures as well as in the cloud.”

  • When: Wednesday, August 1, 2018 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm Pacific Daylight Time
