OData Extensions for Data Aggregation by Chris Webb.
I was just reading the following blog post on the OASIS OData Technical Committee Call for Participation: http://www.odata.org/blog/2012/6/11/oasis-odata-technical-committee-call-for-participation
…when I saw this:
In addition to the core OData version 3.0 protocol found here, the Technical Committee will be defining some key extensions in the first version of the OASIS Standard:
OData Extensions for Data Aggregation – Business Intelligence provides the ability to get the right set of aggregated results from large data warehouses. OData Extensions for Analytics enable OData to support Business Intelligence by allowing services to model data analytic “cubes” (dimensions, hierarchies, measures) and consumers to query aggregated data
Follow the link in the quoted text – it’s very interesting reading! Here’s just one juicy quote:
You have to go to Chris’ post to see the “juicy quote.”
With more data becoming available, at higher speeds, data aggregation is going to be the norm.
Some people will do it well. Some people will do it not so well.
Which one will describe you?
Participation in the OData TC at OASIS may help shape that answer: http://www.odata.org/blog/2012/6/11/oasis-odata-technical-committee-call-for-participation
First meeting details:
The first meeting of the Technical Committee will be a face-to-face meeting to be held in Redmond, Washington on July 26-27, 2012 from 9 AM PT to 5 PM PT. This meeting will be sponsored by Microsoft. Dial-in conference calling bridge numbers will be available for those unable to attend in person.
At least the meeting is on a Thursday/Friday slot! Any comments on the weather to expect in late July?
