Breaking the Latency Floor
Explore why researchers, marketers, data scientists, business analysts, and AI are all made markedly more effective by reducing data access latency. This paper analyzes the most common causes of latency as they impact processing of analytical workloads, and helps readers understand why the vast majority of query latency is bound up in the software reading and processing data. We also explain a novel approach to data access that breaks through the latency floor to deliver real time (for real!), without the need to pre-aggregate, federate, copy, cache or move source data.
