There’s data and there’s Big Data, and these days some of the biggest creators of big data are online gaming apps.

This talk by Dave Shuttleworth of EXASOL will use case studies, including King (makers of hit games Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga), to illustrate how the challenges of rapidly acquired data can be managed. This will include the integration of SQL and Hadoop environments, predictive analytics in SQL and emerging industry trends in this area.


Dave Shuttleworth is a specialist in database technology, parallel processing in the database field, data warehousing and data mining techniques. He has almost 40 years experience in the IT industry and has been at the forefront of the implementation of parallel processing for commercial databases for the last 25 years.

He has spoken at Data Warehouse Institute events in the UK and U.S., DBExpo and at Netezza User Forums in London, San Francisco and Boston, where he won an award for his outstanding contributions to the online Netezza Community.
