Is iPaaS solving the right problems? Not knowing the fundamental difference between iPaaS and dPaaS could cost you down the road. Brought to you in partnership with Liaison Technologies.

Over at Database Tutorials and Videos, you can read a fascinating excerpt of Nathan Marz's Big Data (partially available now in an early-access edition from Manning). The article covers Marz's innovative new big data methodology that he calls "lambda architecture":

Computing arbitrary functions on an arbitrary dataset in real time is a daunting problem. There is no single tool that provides a complete solution. Instead, you have to use a variety of tools and techniques to build a complete Big Data system.


The lambda architecture solves the problem of computing arbitrary functions on arbitrary data in real time by decomposing the problem into three layers: the batch layer, the serving layer, and the speed layer.

The full article is available at Database Tutorials and Videos and is well worth the read.

Discover the unprecedented possibilities and challenges, created by today’s fast paced data climate and why your current integration solution is not enough, brought to you in partnership with Liaison Technologies.
