SlamData announces General Availability of open source MongoDB BI solution

SlamData, Inc., commercial developer of the SlamData open source project, announced the General Availability of their MongoDB BI/analytics solution.
Installers for the release are available from the SlamData website, or the project can be accessed on GitHub and built from source code. The project is licensed under the AGPL V3 license.

SlamData allows for unrestricted ad hoc queries on data stored in MongoDB. Unlike existing solutions, there is no need to relocate the data or write complicated code. SlamData is the only MongoDB analytics solution to offer 100% in database execution and does not stream data or require extensive data mapping or replication.

SlamSQL, the SQL dialect supported by SlamData, allows anyone to write standard SQL queries against data stored in MongoDB, even if that data is heavily nested or has non-uniform structure. SlamData includes a high-level graphical front-end that makes it simple to build and share reports that pull data from MongoDB.

According to SlamData CEO Jeff Carr, “SlamData is simpler to use and more powerful than any current MongoDB analytic solution. As a result we are seeing significant growth in our user base. Other solutions are limited in flexibility or takes days to set up and maintain.”

Continued Carr, “With SlamData you can literally be up and running queries in minutes. And unlike solutions that rely on streaming or other methods to move data, SlamData executes 100% in database and as a result supports very large amounts of data.”

SlamData tackles this issue directly using advanced mathematical extensions to relational algebra. SlamData’s approach allows full support for SQL queries executing directly on a MongoDB database (or replica set), and also the ability to support much more advanced queries than are possible in ANSI SQL.

The open source project already has hundreds of users. “Simple ad hoc analytics is an increasing issue for data-driven companies including Patheer, says Dennis Harris, Co-founder of Patheer, a company building on MongoDB. Continues Harris, “We have been searching for a solution that will allow us to analyze semi/un-structured data without complex MapReduce and other complicated ETL processes. SlamData has been a breath of fresh air as it allows us to analyze our semi/un structured data by just using simple SQL syntax and executes 100% in MongoDB. Other solutions we tried forced us to relocate our data to new data stores or cloud services which slowed us down and added complexity.”

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
