    Death of the Design Comp: Down with the King

    The comp is King...or used to be.

    The design comp has had a long reign as the singular means by which a designer communicates design intention. Its power is garnered from a single screen landscape, but its prominence is rapidly coming to end as we move into an era of modular design in the Fluid Web. Designer Nicole Mors will discuss the future of design communication in a post-comp world.

    Come join us next Thursday, December 11th, at Thetus. Pizza and salad (for those of us who are gluten free and/or vegan) will be provided by our sponsor 24 Seven Talent.

    Time to value is everything. 

    With the emergence of new data sources such as web logs, social media, mobile applications and sensor data, organizations are looking extend BI by providing insights into new areas such as operational performance, product optimization and customer satisfaction. 

    However, traditional data management processes simply don’t work in this new world of big data.

    Organizations now not only have to manage higher volumes of information, but the data itself arrives at faster rates in real time and is more complex, dynamic than traditional transactional datasets. To be useful, this data must be analyzed in much more shorter intervals than traditional reporting cycles of weeks and months.  

    In this session, we will see how Apache Drill is driving this audacious goal to bring Self Service data exploration to Hadoop/NoSQL data, by letting users explore any type of data, immediately as it comes in, using the ANSI SQL language/SQL tools they are already familiar with. We'll see Drill in action on a live Hadoop cluster.
