More About the Author

David Birmingham has worked with and around large-scale data systems and massively parallel processing since 1985. An aficionado of various programming languages and approaches, and a seasoned solution architect for both OLTP and data warehousing solutions, he brings this experience to bear on how to leverage the Netezza technology's massively parallel power.

Mr. Birmingham is an internationally recognized speaker and best-practices expert on Netezza. For several years now, he has led the 6-hour Best Practices sessions at the Enzee Universe, with sold-out attendance (over 500 at the 2011 conference). Recently named an IBM Champion, he is a sought-after speaker and presenter, as well as an in-demand solutions architect for Netezza-centric architectures and implementations.

Mr. Birmingham's innovative flow-based architecture for "ELT" - in-the-box data processing using SQL-transforms, has rapidly taken hold as the defacto standard for Netezza deployments because of its resilience, ease of use and maintenance, alignment with the power-physics of the machine and of course, alignment with the best practices of bulk data processing. Read about the architecture in both Netezza Underground and Netezza Transformation, and how to get the most out of the Netezza technology.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the most useless books I have ever purchased. I was looking for a good Netezza reference book. This book was poorly written and was completely uninformative and useless. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time.

Don't buy this book, it is absolutely useless. The book is not about Netezza or BI or Big Data. It doesn't provide any advice how Netezza could be utilized.
