Senior programmers and executives from Purdue Pharma will talk about how they are performing large scale Big Data analytics using high frequency trading, or algo trading, technologies.

Use cases will demonstrate how query times for an enterprise RDBMS can be reduced from hours to seconds and how real-time Big Data visualizations at scale look with TB of data. They will also describe how their approach, using kdb+, is more economic and efficient than commonly used Big Data platforms.

You will need to provide Meetup with your full name and affiliation to attend this event.

Kx Insights: Machine learning and the value of historical data

2 Aug 2018 | , , ,

Data is being generated at a faster rate now than ever before. IDC has predicted that in 2025, there will be 163 zettabytes of data generated each year—a massive increase from the 16.1 zettabytes created in 2016. These high rates of data generation are partially an outcome of the multitude of sensors found on Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the majority of which are capable of recording data many times per second. IHS estimates that the number of IoT devices in use will increase from 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 75.4 billion in 2025, indicating that these immense rates of data generation will continue to grow even higher in the years to come.
