Experience in Extending Query Engine for Continuous Analytics by Qiming Chen and Meichun Hsu has this problem statement:
Streaming analytics is a data-intensive computation chain from event streams to analysis results. In response to the rapidly growing data volume and the increasing need for lower latency, Data Stream Management Systems (DSMSs) provide a paradigm shift from the load-first analyze-later mode of data warehousing….
Moving from load-first analyze-later has implications for topic maps over data warehouses. Particularly when events that are subjects may only have a transient existence in a data stream.
This is on my reading list to prepare to discuss TMQL in Leipzig.
PS: Only five days left to register for TMRA 2010. It is a don’t miss event.
