SiSense Prism

SiSense will demonstrate SiSense Prism, what it calls "the world's smallest big data analytics" system, which is able to crunch 1 TB of data on a laptop computer with only 8 GB of RAM. The company is promoting the product as an alternative to other big data analysis technology, reducing the need for deep technical skills, big budgets and large data warehouse systems.

SiSense Prism uses the vendor's ElastiCube technology and its In-Memory Columnar Datastore. The software also relies on strong data compression, parallel processing and advanced query optimization to carry out its analytical work.
