Hi, There is a tool called incorta that uses Spark, Parquet and open source big data analytics libraries. Its aim is to accelerate Analytics. It claims that it incorporates Direct Data Mapping to deliver near real-time analytics on top of original, intricate, transactional data such as ERP systems. Direct Data Mapping executes real-time joins with aggregations. It is designed to eradicate cumbersome, time-consuming ETL routines, dimensional data stores and traditional OLAP semantic layers.
So a lot of talk but very little light. It claims that there is no need for star schema and other DW design schemes. So I was wondering anyone has come across it? Some stuff here http://www.jenunderwood.com/2017/04/11/accelerating-analytics-incorta-direct-data-mapping/ Thanks, Dr Mich Talebzadeh LinkedIn * https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=AAEAAAAWh2gBxianrbJd6zP6AcPCCdOABUrV8Pw <https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=AAEAAAAWh2gBxianrbJd6zP6AcPCCdOABUrV8Pw>* http://talebzadehmich.wordpress.com *Disclaimer:* Use it at your own risk.
