The Real-Time CDO and the Cloud-Forward Path to Predictive Analytics
Speaker: Nikita Shamgunov, CTO and co-founder of MemSQL
Date: Tuesday March 7 at 3:45PM

The success of Chief Data Officers requires a focus on business improvement, often by productizing and commercializing information assets.

Creating an IoT Kafka Pipeline in Under 5 Mins
Speaker: Gary Orenstein, CMO, MemSQL
Date: Monday March 6 at 6:00PM
Location: Theater Session

As data increases in size, frequency, and complexity, enterprise organizations must adopt new data management tools to ensure short load times in every application. Apache Kafka, in concert with an operational database, can be used to build interactive, real-time data pipelines. These pipelines capture, process, and serve massive amounts of data to millions of users.

In this session, Gary Orenstein, CMO at MemSQL, will conduct a live IoT demonstration, building a real-time data pipeline using Apache Kafka to capture real-time data from millions of sensors. This demo combines Apache Kafka, a real-time data warehouse, and machine learning to highlight the power of predictive analytics in energy applications.
