The Fifth Elephant 2014

A conference on big data and analytics

In 2014, infrastructure components such as Hadoop, Berkeley Data Stack and other commercial tools have stabilized and are thriving. The challenges have moved higher up the stack from data collection and storage to data analysis and its presentation to users. The focus for this year’s conference on analytics – the infrastructure that powers analytics and how analytics is done.

Talks will cover various forms of analytics including real-time and opportunity analytics, and technologies and models used for analyzing data.

Proposals will be reviewed using 5 criteria:
Domain diversity – proposals will be selected from different domains – medical, insurance, banking, online transactions, retail. If there is more than one proposal from a domain, the one which meets the editorial criteria will be chosen.
Novelty – what has been done beyond the obvious. Insights – what insights does the proposal share with the audience that they did not know earlier. Practical versus theoretical – we are looking for applied knowledge. If the proposal covers material that can be looked up online, it will not be considered.
Conceptual versus tools-centric – tell us why, not how. Tell the audience what was the philosophy underlying your use of an application, not how an application was used. Presentation skills – proposer’s presentation skills will be reviewed carefully and assistance provided to ensure that the material is communicated in the most precise and effective manner to the audience.

Theme

  1. Data Collection and Transport – for e.g, Opendatatoolkit, Scribe, Kafka, RabbitMQ, etc.

  2. Data Storage, Caching and Management – Distributed storage (such as Gluster, HDFS) or hardware-specific (such as SSD or memory) or databases (Postgresql, MySQL, Infobright) or caching/storage (Memcache, Cassandra, Redis, etc).

  3. Data Processing, Querying and Analysis – Oozie, Azkaban, scikit-learn, Mahout, Impala, Hive, Tez, etc.

  4. Real-time analytics

  5. Opportunity analytics

  6. Big data and security

  7. Big data and internet of things

  8. Data Usage and BI (Business Intelligence) in different sectors.

Please note: the technology stacks mentioned above indicate latest technologies that will be of interest to the community. Talks should not be on the technologies per se, but how these have been used and implemented in various sectors, enterprises and contexts.

Real Time Secure API delivering data @ scale

Submitted Jun 4, 2014

At ThoughtWorks, we have used a Hybrid Approach for designing a Real Time secure API, which gives various adhoc querying capability on large amount of data.

This talk will focus on various pro’s and con’s of traditional database system [RDBMS] as well as big data system [Hadoop/Hive] to build an API. Also I will present how both of these system counterbalance each others problems and deliver large amount of data in Real Time.

Outline

Traditional databases are known for their fast response and security whereas Big Data system are known for their scalability and ability to handle large amount of data.

What happens when we want to build a system that required following?

  • Real Time Response

  • Security

  • Handle GB’s of Data

This presentation will walk you through various requirement, system architecture and key design decision for designing a Secure Real time API. This hybrid approach uses both batch processing on Hadoop and real time processing using a Java application and RDBMS.

Various tech used for API are:
1. Hadoop/Hive
2. Oozie
3. Sqoop
4. RDBMS
