@DAMAPDX Chapter Meeting: All Those Other Important Parts of Data Modeling: Security, Privacy and More
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

Presented by Karen Lopez, Senior Project Manager and Architect at InfoAdvisors

Abstract

Modern database systems have introduced more support for security, privacy and compliance over the last few years. We expect this to increase as compliance issues such as GDPR and other data compliance challenges arise.

In this session, Karen will be discussing the newer features from a database designers points of view, including:

  • Data Masking
  • End-to-end Encryption
  • Row Level Security
  • New Data Types
  • Data Categorization and Classification

We'll look at the new features, why you should consider them, where they work, where they don't, who needs to be involved in using them, and what changes, if any, need to be made to applications or tools that you support.

Speaker

Karen is a senior data architect with an extensive background in development processes and data management. She specializes in taking practical approaches to solutions development. Karen has helped many IT organizations choose appropriate methods and standards based on the group's culture, experience, and focus.

Modern business is fluid.  Critical business events must be responded to when they occur.  Delays mean lost opportunities and sub-optimal outcomes.  Modern analytics must be as agile as the business itself.

The days of looking at your data in the rear-view mirror are coming to an end.  We are at the dawn of a new analytic revolution:  the real-time database.  

Millisecond latency is the new analytic performance standard.  A new class of GPU-accelerated databases enable this level of performance.  GPU-accelerated databases are over 100x more performant than even the “fastest” in-memory data stores. 

GPU-accelerated databases can provide extreme levels of scalability without negative performance impacts.  They are also easy to implement; thanks to their use of ANSI-standard SQL and hybrid visualization capabilities.  This makes them particularly attractive for some of the most demanding analytic tasks; like scoring of predictive models, and geospatial visualizations.

Join Amit Vij from Kinetica to learn how GPU-accelerated databases can enable real-time businesses.
