Title: Enterprise Information Mashups: Integrating Information, Simply
Speaker: Anant Jhingran (VP and CTO, IBM Silicon Valley Laboratory, USA) [Paper][Slides]

Abstract: There is a fundamental transformation that is taking place on the web around information composition through mashups. We first describe this transformation and then assert that this will also affect enterprise architectures. Currently the state-of-the-art in enterprises around information composition is federation and other integration technologies. These scale well, and are well worth the upfront investment for enterprise class, long-lived applications. However, there are many information composition tasks that are not currently well served by these architectures. The needs of Situational Applications (i.e. applications that come together for solving some immediate business problems) are one such set of tasks. Augmenting structured data with unstructured information is another such task. Our hypothesis is that a new class of integration technologies will emerge to serve these tasks, and we call it an enterprise information mashup fabric. In the talk, we discuss the information management primitives that are needed for this fabric, the various options that exist for implementation, and pose several, currently unanswered, research questions.

Bio of the speaker:
Dr. Anant Jhingran is Distinguished Engineer, Vice President and the Chief Technology Officer for IBM's Information Management Division. He is responsible for the technical strategy of multi-billion dollar division that produces products and solutions in databases, content management, business intelligence and information integration. Previous to this job, Dr. Jhingran lead the IBM team designing and building world-class solutions to meet the requirements of business analytics on structured and unstructured data. He has also been the director of Computer Science at the IBM Almaden Research Center where he managed the research scientists dedicated to advancing technology across foundations, software and services. Prior to joining Almaden Research, Dr. Jhingran was senior manager for e-Commerce and data management at IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center. He received his Ph.D. from UC at Berkeley in 1990. Anant has received several patents, outstanding innovation awards, and a corporate award for his contributions to DB2. He has authored over 20 academic papers, and is also a member of IBM Academy of Technology.

  Keynote Address 2

 

Location: 401
Session Chair: Gustavo Alonso

Title: Next Generation Data Management in Enterprise Application Platforms
Speaker: Vishal Sikka (Senior VP and GM, SAP AG, Germany) [Paper][Slides]

Abstract: As a leading provider of applications and application infrastructure software, SAP has been always interested in the entire spectrum of enterprise data management from transactional to analytical, structured and unstructured, as well as high-volatility event data streams. The underlying architecture for enterprise applications has fundamentally changed in the last decade, with the adoption of service-oriented architectures representing the latest shift. However, DBMS architecture has not evolved sufficiently to meet the challenges that these new application characteristics pose. As a result, at SAP we have been rethinking the way enterprise applications manage their data. In this talk, we will present some key aspects of this rethinking. We will start with a description of the shift in application architecture and the challenges that this shift poses on data management. We will then describe the failings of a single overarching DBMS architecture against these needs, and then describe some examples of usage-specific data management in enterprise application platforms. In particular we will focus on our approach to managing analytical, transactional and master data. We will present some results that describe how, with a combination of better utilization of main-memory based data management techniques, addressing the needs of the next generation application infrastructure and advances in the underlying computing and storage infrastructure, we can do significantly more efficient data management.

Bio of the speaker:
Dr. Vishal Sikka is Senior Vice President and GM of SAP's architecture group with responsibility for roadmap and architecture governance for SAP's products and technology. In addition, he is the CTO of SAP's products and technology group with responsibility for technology direction, innovation and partnerships in strategic product and technology areas. Prior to joining SAP, Dr. Sikka served as area vice president of platform technologies at Peregrine Systems (Remedy) responsible for application development and integration. Vishal joined Peregrine following the acquisition of Bodha, Inc., where he served as founder and CEO. Bodha developed technology for non-invasive, service-based integration of enterprise applications and information. Vishal holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University and his experience includes work in modeling, information management, application development, and artificial intelligence at Stanford and two startups.

Title:
Data Integration: The Teenage Years
Authors : Alon Halevy, Anand Rajaraman, Joann Ordille [Paper][Slides]

Abstract : Data integration is a pervasive challenge faced in applications that need to query across multiple autonomous and heterogeneous data sources. Data integration is crucial in large enterprises that own a multitude of data sources, for progress in large-scale scientific projects, where data sets are being produced independently by multiple researchers, for better cooperation among government agencies, each with their own data sources, and in offering good search quality across the millions of structured data sources on the World-Wide Web. Ten years ago we published ''Querying Heterogeneous Information Sources using Source Descriptions'', a paper describing some aspects of the Information Manifold data integration project. The Information Manifold and many other projects conducted at the time have led to tremendous progress on data integration and even to quite a few commercial data integration products. This talk and associated paper offer a perspective on the contributions of the Information Manifold and its peers, describes some of the important bodies of work in the data integration field in the last ten years, and outlines some challenges to data integration research today.

Bio of the speaker: Dr. Alon Halevy received his Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 1988, and his Ph.D in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1993. From 1993 to 1997, Dr. Halevy was a principal member of technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, and then at AT&T Laboratories. He joined the faculty of the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University of Washington in 1998.
