SQL Query: 3 Methods for Calculating Cumulative SUM

Image
SQL provides various constructs for calculating cumulative sums, offering flexibility and efficiency in data analysis. In this article, we explore three distinct SQL queries that facilitate the computation of cumulative sums. Each query leverages different SQL constructs to achieve the desired outcome, catering to diverse analytical needs and preferences. Using Window Functions (e.g., PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Oracle) SELECT id, value, SUM(value) OVER (ORDER BY id) AS cumulative_sum  FROM your_table; This query uses the SUM() window function with the OVER clause to calculate the cumulative sum of the value column ordered by the id column. Using Subqueries (e.g., MySQL, SQLite): SELECT t1.id, t1.value, SUM(t2.value) AS cumulative_sum FROM your_table t1 JOIN your_table t2 ON t1.id >= t2.id GROUP BY t1.id, t1.value ORDER BY t1.id; This query uses a self-join to calculate the cumulative sum. It joins the table with itself, matching rows where the id in the first table is greater than or

MemSQL in Advanced Data Analytics

Why use a battery of "complicated" and "immature" tools like Kafka, Zookeeper, and NoSQL databases to support low-latency big data applications when you can use a durable, consistent, SQL-compliant in-memory database?

This is the question NewSQL in-memory database vendors MemSQL and VoltDB are posing to big-data developers who are trying to build real-time applications. MemSQL this week announced a two-way, high-performance MemSQL Spark Connector designed to complement the fast-growing Apache Spark in-memory analytics platform.  

"There's a lot of excitement about Spark, but many data scientists struggle with complexity and the high degree of expertise to work with related data pipelines," said Erik Frenkiel, CEO and cofounder of MemSQL, in a phone interview with InformationWeek. "As a database, MemSQL offers durability and transaction support, so it can simplify those real-time data pipelines, providing the ability to ingest data and query the system through a SQL interface."
