Analytics on Fly - Read It

The basis for real-time analytics is to have all resources at disposal in the moment they are called for . So far, special materialized data structures, called cubes, have been created to efficiently serve analytical reports. Such cubes are based on a fixed number of dimensions along which analytical reports can define their result sets. Consequently, only a particular set of reports can be served by one cube. If other dimensions are needed, a new cube has to be created or existing ones have to be extended. In the worst case, a linear increase in the number of dimensions of a cube can result in an exponential growth of its storage requirements. Extending a cube can result in a deteriorating performance of those reports already using it. The decision to extend a cube or build a new one has to be considered carefully. 

In any case, a wide variety of cubes may be built during the lifetime of a system to serve reporting, thus increasing storage requirements and also maintenance efforts.

Instead of working with a predefined set of reports, business users should be able to formulate ad-hoc reports. Their playground should be the entire set of data the company owns, possibly including further data from external sources. Assuming a fast in-memory database, no more pre-computed materialized data structures are needed. As soon as changes to data are committed to the database, they will be visible for reporting. 

The preparation and conversion steps of data if still needed for reports are done during query execution and computations take place on the fly. Computation on the fly during reporting on the basis of cubes that do not store data, but only provide the interface for reporting, solves a problem that has existed up to now and allows for performance optimization of all analytical reports likewise

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it.

Different Types Of Payment Cards you need to know

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …
