October 19, 2010 @ 7:00pm – High-Performance Scalability for Enterprise Applications with Enterprise Ehcache

Description

Scaling enterprise applications is hard. Traditional architectures that use the database as a hub of application data and shared state lead to performance bottlenecks, excessive database license and hardware costs, and vendor lock-in. Many homegrown or patched-together solutions at worst don’t work and at best suck hours of developer time that could be better spent elsewhere.

Enterprise Ehcache is an easy-to-deploy solution to these hard-to-solve scale and throughput problems. Ehcache has long been the de facto standard for Java caching and is the default cache for many popular frameworks and containers such as Hibernate, Spring, Tomcat, JBoss, WebLogic, WebSphere, and ColdFusion. In this presentation you will learn how to use Enterprise Ehcache to speed up and scale out your application from one node to 1,000s, to large virtualized environments and clouds:
* Background—standard caching theory and practice
* Getting started—the Ehcache API and configuration
* Web caching
* Advanced scaling techniques—configuring and deploying a distributed cache
* Flexibility, management, and control—decorators, listeners, statistics, and monitoring
* Cloud deployment
* Tuning and monitoring best practices

Speaker

On short notice we had a speaker change. Dan Juengst had a schedulling conflict. Instead Eric Mizell from Terractotta will give the presentation:

As a Solutions Architect on the Field Engineering Team for Terracotta, Eric Mizell helps enterprise IT organizations improve their service availability and application performance through the application of the industry leading Terracotta Java Scalability Technology.  Eric has over 12 years of experience designing and developing enterprise systems where performance and scalability were essential. Outside the office, he spends time with his family and especially enjoys coaching his son’s baseball team.

Large-scale Entity Extraction and Probabilistic Record Linkage

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Large-scale entity extraction, disambiguation and linkage in Big Data can challenge the traditional methodologies developed over the last three decades. Entity linkage, in particular, is cornerstone for a wide spectrum of applications, such as Master Data Management, Data Warehousing, Social Graph Analytics, Fraud Detection and Identity Management. Traditional rules based heuristic methods usually don’t scale properly, are language specific and require significant maintenance over time.

We will introduce the audience to the use of probabilistic record linkage, also known as specificity based linkage, on Big Data, to perform language independent large-scale entity extraction, resolution and linkage across diverse sources. We will also present a live demonstration reviewing the different steps required during the data integration process (ingestion, profiling, parsing, cleansing, standardization and normalization), and show the basic concepts behind probabilistic record linkage on a real-world application.
