Arcadia Data has announced that it will be releasing Arcadia Enterprise; a business intelligence (BI) and full-scale visual analytics solution that runs on Hadoop. The firm behind the unified BI and analytical big data platform said that Enterprise is a modern solution that will enable companies to gain visualisation and BI on big data by collapsing the legacy data management stack.
Arcadia Enterprise is an industry-first distributed, self-learning architectural solution that will run natively on Hadoop. It allows business analysts to discover data records in their billions and has near real-time responsiveness, enabling thousands of simultaneous queries to be run.
By their very nature, legacy visualisation and BI tools were not developed with big data in mind; as a result, they use architectures that rely on proprietary data warehouses. IT departments are then forced to develop costly and complex programs that shift data outside theses silos. The resulting approach to BI and data analysis is slow and reduces the number of information samples that can be used. This means analysts often have to wait weeks and months to get big data queries answered, with many of the results lacking the insight required for modern business.
As a way to address this problem, Arcadia will release Enterprise. This will provide businesses with a way to work with their Hadoop-based data and quickly discover parallel information sets and dig down into deeper layers of analysis. As users work, the solution also learns which queries are the most important so that data can be optimised.
One company already using the system is Procter & Gamble. The company’s associate director of global business services, Terry McFadden, said: “For three years, we’ve been evaluating the market for a BI product with an architectural signature which can leverage the power that you have in the Hadoop cluster. Other tools in the BI and analytics space, many pre-dating Hadoop, require that data be pulled out of Hadoop first. Arcadia Enterprise is the first product we found that provides truly on-cluster Hadoop BI in the way we were seeking. Its execution model and user self-service approach deliver performance at Hadoop scale, and lets us develop our analytics quickly.”
Meanwhile, Arcadia Data’s chief executive, Sushil Thomas, explained that big data is becoming increasingly important; however, its use is still being shackled by poor visualisation technologies. As a result Arcadia Enterprise has been developed to break through the old stack and give modern businesses the tools they require to really make data analysis count.
