Recently a development team met some difficulties in data source computation when developing iReport reports. After the use of esProc for cross database computation, the problem is resolved. This is a project payment progress report, as part of a project management system. It's based on an Oracle database. The reports needs to present the project name, payment amount, contract value, payment progress (in percentage), and name of the project manager, etc., for all ongoing projects. Amount these the first 3 items contributes to the difficulties met by the development team. Note that the project payment record is stored in accounting system, rather than the Oracle database used by the development team. The accounting system is built on MSSQL database. The contract value information is also stored in a separate MSSQL database, used by contract management system. After a... (more)

Database to Implement Big Data Real-Time Application

The Big Data Real-time Application is a scenario to return the computation and analysis results in real time even if there are huge amounts of data. This is an emerging demand on database applications in recent years. In the past, because there wasn't a lot of data, the computation was simple, and few parallelisms, the pressure on the database wasn't great. A high-end or middle-range database server or cluster could allocate enough resources to meet the demand. Moreover, in order to rapidly and parallel access to the current business data and the historic data, users also tended t... (more)

Hadoop + esProc Help You Replace IOE

What is IOE? I=IBM, O=Oracle, and E=EMC. They represent the typical high-end database and data warehouse architecture. The high-end servers include HP, IBM, and Fujitsu, the high-end database software includes Teradata, Oracle, Greenplum; the high-end storages include EMC, Violin, and Fusion-io. In the past, such typical high performance database architecture is the preference of large and middle sized organizations. They can run stably with superior performance, and became popular when the informatization degree was not so high and the enterprise application was simple. With the ... (more)

Six Desktop BI Tools

Recently, I finished a project which involves using the Excel, R Project, and es-series in combination. An idea occurred to me in the work. Why not put them along with the Matlab, SPSS, and Stata side-by-side to make an introductions and comparisons of Desktop BI tools? At last, this essay comes into being, as you can see below. Desktop BI refers to the BI tools running on the desktop environment, almost not requiring any server supports. The typical Desktop BI only provides the core BI functions with less requirement on the technical environments. By comparison, such software a... (more)
