HP Neoview platform?

Since the introduction of the disk drive in 1956, the density of information it can record has swelled from a paltry 2,000 bits to 100 billion bits (gigabits), all crowded in the small space of a square inch. That represents a 50-million-fold increase. Not even Moore's silicon chips can boast that kind of progress. August 2005 Scientific American Magazine Anne Livermore, HPTF 2007 “More information will be generated over the next five years than in all previous history.” Kryder’s Law
According to our own IBM study, by 2010, the amount of digital information in the world will double every 11 months… Steve Mills Senior VP and Group Executive IBM Software Feb 14, 2007 CNET News. Com Returning to today’s environment, it’s not a pretty sight! Growing out of sight!
Principles Obtain data once and at the source Data is complete and detailed Define, model, and map all data Help ensure all data has integrity Provide complete access Flexibility and scale Production control MRP Inventory control Parts management Logistics Shipping Raw goods Order control Purchasing Enterprise data warehouse = simplification Single integrated source of enterprise information Neoview platform HP Neoview – A pretty sight
An integrated hardware and software platform for data warehousing initially supporting 3 to 56 TB solutions Built from standards-based commodity components A complete, preconfigured solution that can be rapidly deployed, easily managed, and is compatible with existing BI applications Neoview platform Intel ® Itanium ® processor–based servers HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel disks HP Neoview – leveraging standards!
HP Neoview – leveraging NonStop … drawing on the knowledge and experience of all Borg, and all archived encounters, technology, tactical information and scientific data, the Borg collective is a community … Neoview was conceived as a data warehousing appliance--consists of the NonStop OS microkernel and database, HP Integrity servers and StorageWorks storage system, a management dashboard for monitoring system performance, and the ability to extract data from line-of-business databases and load it into the warehouse.

Winston Prather, HPTF 2007 Neoview? It’s another NonStop application! Hasn’t the NonStop community been wanting to see more applications on NonStop? HP Neoview – making lots of sense Neoview is a bold new direction for HP that leverages their NonStop experience in combination with “commodity” server technology. HP has avoided this perfect storm for acquisition overpayment by making use of its Tandem goods, and in-house services, smarts. Now it just has to tell someone about it!

Innovation through BI
ITUG Connection – Real Time View Operational BI BI, in the hands of many thousands of users, in operational positions, will change the way business is done! Operational BI BI, in the hands of many thousands of users, in operational positions, will change the way business is done!
“In a vibrant BI program, the people running the business learn through contact with the data and also through examples of what the data warehouse can do for them. As they learn, they are constantly thinking up new ideas to take advantage of their BI capabilities.” Richard Winter – President, Winter Group Fall X 7 Innovation?
What is Business Intelligence (BI)? From Fall X 7 Magazine … Sami Akbay, GoldenGate BI means making information accessible to people who need to make decisions on behalf of of an enterprise in a timely, accurate, consistent, integrated, and easy manner. Richard Winter, Winter Group BI has evolved as an umbrella term that involves a higher-level look at the business. It’s not so much how you make specific decisions, but about getting a complete picture. Greg Battas, HP BCS BI has moved from being “tactically strategic” … to being fundamentally strategicto the corporation as a whole. Rich Ghiossi, HP ESS BI is no longer a luxury. It is how you institutionalize knowledge and how you react to your customers in a consistent and intelligent manner. Sami Akbay, VP Marketing GoldenGate BI is no longer a luxury. It is how you institutionalize knowledge and how you react to your customers in a consistent and intelligent manner. Sami Akbay, VP Marketing GoldenGate From Fall X 7 Magazine …
“The nature of innovation – the inherent definition of innovation – has changed today from what it was in the past. “It’s no longer individuals toiling in a laboratory, coming up with some great invention. It’s not an individual. It’s individuals.” Sam Palmisano Chairman and CEO IBM 87% of CEOs believe fundamental change is required in next two years to drive innovation Source: 2006 IBM Global CEO Survey Over 60% of CEOs believe their organizations need to do a better job leveraging information Do we need the lonely Innovator?
With the transformation, HP IT will: - Provide good information to enable better decisions -Significantly reduce the cost of IT whole delivering more to the business -Lower risk to the enterprise with better control of the infrastructure Randy Mott, – HPTF 2007 HP will Innovate!

Can we ignore Innovation? “The Stone Age didn’t end because of a lack of stones … “New technology will succeed not because it’s forced on us, but because it’s better!” Dennis Simanaitis Road and Track Oct, 2004
Real Time Data Integration
ITUG Connection – Real Time View Real-Time Data Integration How fresh must the data be for it to be useful? And, as more data intersects, more ideas will be generated! Real-Time Data Integration How fresh must the data be for it to be useful? And, as more data intersects, more ideas will be generated!
The Basics of Real-Time Data Integration? Eliminate batch window dependency Ease-of-building integration processes Low overhead Log-based Low overhead on data sources Change Data Capture Reduced burden on infrastructure No additional programming required to create delta files Transaction Integrity Referential integrity across multiple database objects, no need to quiesce data sources for consistency
James Martin (Prentice Hall, 1967) Design of Real-Time Computer Systems Realtime? “[a system] which controls an environment by receiving data, processing them, and taking action or returning results sufficiently quickly to affect the functioning of the environment at that time.” [and] the term realtime was applied only to industrial control, weapons systems, and other exotic applications, all of which were essentially characterized as those …. … where inability to meet deadlines led to failure – usually a spectacularly catastrophic one.

Bolder Technology Inc – Knowing Sooner Rather Than Later In today’s rapidly changing global economy, a critical issue facing every organization is the freshness of their business data. Knowing about your business sooner, rather than later, provides a competitive edge and enables you to better manage through unexpected situations
Need for Fresh Data? I think we’re getting to the point where the hardest part of BI is not querying the data and getting answers – it’s actually getting the data to a point where it can be queried. For years the industry has talked about ETL – extraction, transformation, and load. I think we’re starting to see a shift toward ELT, where we move data from another system directly to our system.
