This Objective-C SDK is for use with Google's BigQuery API.
The BigQuery API facilitates the efficient management of large datasets by pairing SQL-like commands and append-only tables with Google's significant processing power. This official Objective-C SDK is the recommended library for accessing JSON-based Google APIs for iOS and Mac OS X applications. The library is compatible with applications built for iOS 3 and later, and Mac OS X 10.5 and later.
The vast majority of analytics software is going to be consumed within another application, rather than exist as a stand-alone application. Recognizing this fact, analytics application vendors are racing to deliver robust sets of APIs around their applications that make it easier for developers to embed those capabilities within their applications.
As demand for Big Data applications continues to increase developers are being forced to confront some fundamental issues associated with traditional extract, transform and load (ETL). Simply put the ETL processes and technology they have in place was never designed to handle loading massive amounts of data into an application.
Splice Machine prides itself on being the only transactional SQL-on-Hadoop database aimed at giving developers an easy-to-learn tool for managing big data in the enterprise. ProgrammableWeb spoke with Splice Machine's CEO Monte Zweben at the recent API World and Data Week conference in San Francisco - where they won a Top Innovator award - to discuss how API developers can access the best-of-both-worlds SQL and NoSQL database engine to return contextual and personalization data in realtime.
