One-size-fits-all approach in BI on cloud is bound to fail. So how can we make sure that we tailor the solutions to meet each customer’s individual BI needs, and in doing so, how do we leverage on the experiences, and the best practices gained from our on-premise BI implementations. How do we build flexible and scalable BI solutions, and yet make them secure on cloud. To understand these aspects better let’s look at – the IP led approach for developing BI solutions on cloud and follow it up with a demo

  Abstract
As massive data acquisition and storage becomes increasingly affordable, a wide variety of enterprises are employing statisticians to engage in sophisticated data analysis. In this talk we highlight the emerging practice of Magnetic, Agile, Deep (MAD) data analysis as a radical departure from traditional Enterprise Data Warehouses and Business Intelligence. We present design philosophy, techniques and experience in the field providing MAD analytics for businesses and researchers confronted with ever-expanding data sets.

We describe design methodologies that support the agile working style of analysts in these settings. We present data-parallel algorithms for statistical techniques, with a focus on density methods. Finally, we reflect on system features that enable agile design and flexible algorithm development, with lessons for both SQL and MapReduce programming styles.
