The Inverted Data Warehouse Based on TARGIT Xbone

How the Biggest of Data Can Be Mined by “The Little Guy”
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP, volume 206)


We present TARGIT’s Xbone memory-based analytics server and define the concept of an Inverted Data Warehouse (IDW). We demonstrate the high-performance analytics properties of this particular design, as well as its resistance to failures. Additionally, we present a large scale solution in which TARGIT Xbone and IDW are implemented incorporating Google search data. The solution is used for so-called Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and can reveal interesting information about Google’s algorithmic behavior on specific searches. Finally, we demonstrate the combined TARGIT Xbone and IDW to be very cost-effective and thus available to small enterprises that would normally not benefit from Big Data analytics.
