Beyond the Cloud: The Future of Analytics in the Hybrid Era, a talk by Mehdi Ouazza, Developer advocate, MotherDuck

Talk Description

In this talk, we'll take a trip down memory lane to explore why there was a significant shift towards cloud computing. We'll appreciate the innovations brought by this transition, but also recognize that our current local computing capabilities are far more powerful than they were when the cloud first emerged. The rising costs of cloud computing have been a burning issue, prompting teams and the entire industry to rethink how we can better leverage our local computing resources. The good news is that there are already specific technologies aligning with this strategy. In our discussion, we will delve into particular analytics use cases powered by WebAssembly (WASM) technology. This exploration will not only highlight the technical aspects but also demonstrate the practical benefits of this integrated approach in the realm of data analytics.
