SiSense, the Big Data Analytics Company, has announced that it is introducing
the first In-Chip Analytics solution in the Cloud. The SiSense business
analytics software, powered by Rackspace Hosting (NYSE: RAX), will be
demonstrated today and tomorrow at the GigaOM Structure conference in San
Francisco (booth #43).
With SiSense Prism 10X, companies of all sizes are able to run Terabyte-range

complex clusters, acquiring or maintaining expensive hardware. The solution

Minister- Oh, yes. Bernard- Well, in fact there are *only* 342 administrative

So Microsoft PASS Summit 2010 was kicked off on November 10th, and the
burning topic was where Microsoft’s Analysis Services product is headed in
light of Microsoft’s new PowerPivot offering. Chris Webb, probably one of
