Unlocking Machine Generated Data

Bridging the Structure Chasm between Hadoop and Relational

In this White Paper by Dr. Barry Devlin of 9sight Consulting, learn how machine-generated data is the coming wave of big data and why it will dwarf the current experience in both volume and velocity. Drawing from the experiences of one of its bigger users, eBay, you’ll learn:

  • How to unlock the value of machine-generated data
  • The importance of name-value pairs (NPVs) from machines
  • Why you should choose a relational database technology as your foundation (demonstrated via sample SQL snippets executed against the Teradata Extreme Data Appliance and Teradata Database 14.0)


You will also take away why machine-generated and other data types within the Teradata Unified Data Architecture™ are an overarching vision of how information and data will be increasingly situated in the future.
