Rapid Updates 1

Join us at the Strata Data New York conference next week at Jacob K Javits Convention Center to learn how our data management and analytics products can help you manage and analyze hybrid data to better gain business insights.  This O’Reilly conference takes place September 25-28, with an opening reception from 5-6:30pm Tuesday in the Expo Hall.  Exhibits are open during the day Wednesday 10:30am-7:05pm and Thursday 10:30am-4:35pm.  There’s also a booth crawl Wednesday evening from 6:05-7:05pm, to relax with some refreshments after a long day of keynotes and speaking sessions.

Actian will be in booth 350 with live demos of our latest, record-setting analytic databases running queries orders of magnitude faster than alternative platforms.  We can also talk in more detail about our newly-announced Actian Vector in Hadoop 5.0 analytics database.  This new release features additional integration with Apache Spark to support native Hadoop file formats like Parquet and ORC, and direct interaction with Spark SQL and Spark R applications using DataFrames.

We’ll be doing a few live web interviews at the show, with Jeff Veis, SVP Marketing, talking with theCUBE at 1:30pm Tuesday and to Eric Kavanagh at The Bloor Group at 4:15pm Tuesday.  Emma McGrattan, SVP Engineering, joins theCUBE in an interview at 10:30am Wednesday.  Tune in to hear their views on the analytics market and how to harness the power of hybrid data.

We will also be running a very visible contest where you can win an exciting prize.  Sign up at the booth to get a free badge with a blinking LED, and wear it during the exhibit hours.  Several times each day, we will select someone wearing a badge to receive one of the following prizes:

  • UPair One quadcopter drone
  • Amazon Echo Dot
  • YETI Tumbler drinking cup
  • $100 Amazon gift certificate
