Advanced analytics and machine learning are rapidly growing in importance in enterprise computing. Key enterprise data typically resides in relational and document form, and it is inefficient to copy data between systems to perform different types of analytical operations.

In addition to leveraging the rich set of Postgres capabilities like window functions, Greenplum offers machine learning, graph analytics, statistics, data transformation, text analytics, geospatial, multiple data science libraries, and connectivity to productivity tools like Jupyter and Apache Zeppelin. These innovations are all PostgreSQL-compatible but designed for massively parallel use cases.

In this session, we will give a tour of these technologies on Greenplum, review scalability results, and describe common usage patterns.

Keywords: Apache MADlib, GPText, PostGIS, Jupyter, Apache Zeppelin
