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

In addition to leveraging the rich set of Postgres analytics like window functions, Greenplum offers machine learning, graph analytics, statistics, and data transformations via the mature Apache MADlib open source project. These capabilities are all Postgres-compatible but designed for massively parallel use cases.

When it comes to deploying to production, modern enterprise AI deployments are ecosystems of machine learning solutions that tightly integrate a feedback loop triggering automated updates to the underlying algorithms, and thus creating closed loop machine learning systems. MADlib Flow has been designed for containerized deployment of AI pipelines to Kubernetes, where Cloud Foundry with Postgres play a key role for low latency prediction.

In this session, we will give an overview of Apache MADlib on Greenplum and MADlib Flow. Topics will include scalability results, roadmap, and an example of a real-time financial transaction fraud prevention system that continuously learns new threat signatures.
