Real-time geospatial capabilities in MemSQL identify the geographic location and characteristics of natural or constructed features and boundaries, and the objects that reside or move within them. For mobile, transportation and logistics, having instant access to real-time geospatial data can mean greater visibility into smart device application use, fuel efficiency, global supply chains and real-time inventory management. Industries gain true competitive advantage when business-critical decisions can be made as quickly as the data is captured.

On the heels of the open data geospatial demonstration at Spark Summit East in NYC with Esri, MemSQL will showcase high volume data ingest with the concurrent ability to query a changing dataset, eliminating the challenges of conventional ETL to deliver instant results. "Supercar" tracks real-time driver demand, pickup and route information based on a real world New York City taxi dataset, demonstrating simultaneous event capture and analytics with a large scale simulated workload.

MemSQL will be at booth #119 at the Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit.

MemSQL co-founder and CEO Eric Frenkiel will be presenting, "From Spark to Ignition: Fueling Your Business on Real-Time Analytics," at 12:30pm-12:50pm on Monday, March 30th, Theater A, Forum Ballroom.
