SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/13 -- Metamarkets, the leader in real-time analytics for online advertising, announced that Steven Harris has joined the company as Vice President of Engineering. Harris is focused on strengthening, streamlining, and scaling the company's hosted service, which processes more than one trillion raw events monthly. Metamarkets' core customers -- firms in the programmatic display and mobile advertising ecosystem -- have encountered explosive growth over the last three years, heightening the need for scalable, fast and reliable data architectures, which is being fulfilled by Metamarkets' analytics service. In parallel, a growing community has emerged around Druid, the real-time database at the heart of Metamarkets' stack that was recently made available to the open-source community.
Harris, a seasoned veteran and a visionary for big data and in-memory solutions, is uniquely suited to manage both of these challenges. He joins Metamarkets from Terracotta, a leader in big data management solutions, where he served as VP of Engineering and was instrumental in developing Terracotta's technologies from the ground up. Harris began his career as the Senior Engineer of the Terracotta platform and quickly progressed from there to lead the Engineering organization. Under his stewardship, Terracotta built a widely-adopted and highly-acclaimed product family. He was responsible for the successful integration of the Terracotta platform with Ehcache, an open source, standards-based cache for boosting performance of databases and Quartz Scheduler, the most popular open-source Java scheduler. Prior to Terracotta, Harris worked at Kenamea, Keyspan Energy, and TIAA-CREF. Harris holds two patents around data storing and sharing.
"Marketers are harnessing data to target audiences across desktops and mobile devices in ways never before possible. Steve's experience at Terracotta, designing the guts of the world's largest data software systems, is perfect preparation for his mission at Metamarkets. Steve believes that when it comes to data architectures, scale wins -- and we agree," said Michael Driscoll, CEO, Metamarkets.
"When I tell colleagues that Metamarkets' handles over 80 billion events a day, it's somewhat shocking," said Harris. "But just as important as scale, the next generation of data platforms will be defined by speed and immediate access to live data. This explains why we've seen such rapid adoption of open-source Druid, which fit an open need as a real-time database."
Harris's appointment follows the recent addition of Dr. Deborah Rieman, former Check Point Software U.S. CEO and Adobe executive, as Executive Chairman to the Board of Directors earlier this month. Other recent appointments include Jeff Epstein, former Chief Financial Officer at DoubleClick, to the Board of Directors, and Adam Smith, former Google Ads Product Manager, as Vice President of Product in November 2012.
Metamarkets is the premier visual analytics engine for real-time marketing data. Its cloud-based service gives buyers and sellers of digital advertising the ability to spot trends, drill down on data, visualize insights, and make decisions. This is achieved by ingesting and analyzing vast amounts of transactional data in real-time, as events are unfolding, and presenting this information through an intuitive, interactive visual interface. Metamarkets' scalable software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution offers rapid deployment and hands-free management, without burdening your internal teams. It is the first truly scalable analytics service for real-time advertising, including web display, video, and mobile, with a turnkey solution to convert data into revenues.
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
