    Dynamic Data Warehousing of Semi-Structured Data with Snowflake

    Here at Full 360 we consider ourselves “data centric… technology agnostic”. When faced with a data problem we try to identify the software solution that will best handle our client’s needs, as opposed to a “one hammer fits all” approach of using only tools that we know. That being said… over time we have developed preferences for certain products and providers. These preferences have grown from our experience doing BI for 15+ years, and understanding the problems that emerge over the lifetime of the application. Our primary preference for reporting on “big data” is the use of columnar databases. We already have what we consider to be the two strongest columnar database options under our banner of expertise… and have found that most of the other options in the marketplace aren’t worth pursuing because they don’t bring anything new to the table… or are simply columnar options for enterprise RDBMS offerings.

    Earlier in 2014, Snowflake Computing contacted us about a sneak preview of their SaaS columnar data warehouse offering. After seeing the demo I was immediately excited and took them up on their offer for a free account so that I could give it a spin. Now that the product has become publicly available I am free to share my excitement with you!

    Full360 Likes Jaspersoft 5

    I had the good fortune to be invited to the Jaspersoft pre-release seminars in San Francisco. There I was in the company of a few other partners and at least 40 Jaspersoft employees from all different departments (and countries) around the company. 

    So what’s new? Jaspersoft Version 5. Although I’m fairly new to the product, I got a good idea of where it’s going, and most importantly what concepts are driving development. Here’s a brief recap of all that I saw.

    Use Cases for the Agile Data Warehouse

    Some of you might have attended our webinar February 4. When we put the webinar together, we felt that most of the attendees were interested in using the Agile Data Warehouse (ADW) as a Business Intelligence (BI) sandbox, or as a development and test environment. But we’ve found since then that many of the attendees had much bigger plans for the ADW than we had originally anticipated. So I’d like to discuss some of the market feedback we received and actual use cases that are now being developed around the ADW.
