Thinking Radically about Data Warehousing and Big Data: Interview with Roger Gaskell, CTO of Kognitio

Managing data-particularly in large numbers-still is and probably will be the number one priority for many organizations in the upcoming years. Many of the traditional ways to store and analyze large amounts of data are being replaced with new technologies and methodologies to manage the new volume, complexity, and analysis requirements. These include new ways of developing data warehousing, the emergence of big-data providers to store and analyze very large sets of information, and new hardware and software technologies to speed the data analysis process, among others.

One of the important players in this fierce and competitive space is Kognitio, a company founded in 2005 with headquarters in Bracknell, United Kingdom, and offices in the United States in Chicago, New York, and Minneapolis.

Kognitio is a provider of data warehouse and business intelligence (BI) systems that incorporate in-memory, massively parallel processing (MPP), as well as an interesting virtual online analytical processing (OLAP) cube solution.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Roger Gaskell, chief technical officer (CTO) of Kognitio, and got some of interesting insights on Kognitio's systems as well the BI and the data warehouse space in general.
