BI integrated with Big Data in latest cloud tool

16/03/2016 by


A new cloud solution is giving businesses the chance to get their hands on an even more informative tool by linking Big Data into Business Intelligence (BI) analysis and insights. It’s an important move as Big Data continues to show its usefulness as a source of essential information but is still expensive to access with off-the-shelf products. The latest solution should help businesses access powerful data in a cheaper and simpler way than ever before so that they can gain insights to help decision making in the future.

To combat the need for expensive IT solutions when using Big Data, service specialist Altiscale is to launch a new Insight Cloud. This self-service analytics tool will bridge the gap between BI and Big Data, helping to simplify the process for users. The solution has also been developed as a way to circumnavigate costly, proprietary tools, making life easier and cheaper for the average company.

At its heart, Altiscale Insight Cloud should reward users with easier and faster access to BI analysis from rich Big Data from Hadoop. Because it has been developed to use a converged architectural system, Insight Cloud removes the requirement to put aggregated data into a separate relational data store. This not only decreases the burden upon a business’ management team but is also cheaper. Meanwhile, the system is extremely scalable, and users can access relatively small tens of terabytes up to vast petabytes of data. Another benefit of the converged architecture is that data movement is minimised, and information replication across varied environments and platforms is decreased. 

Altiscale CEO and founder Raymie Stata said: “Our enterprise customers first wanted to have a powerful, affordable solution to solve their Big Data challenge, which we provided with the Altiscale Data Cloud. Today we are introducing the Altiscale Insight Cloud, which solves the challenge of bringing Big Data to a broader range of users, so that enterprises can quickly develop new offerings, better target customers, and respond to shifting market or operational conditions. It's a faster and easier way to get from Big Data infrastructure to insights that drive real business value.”

For companies that want to discover more, Altiscale has put up a full breakdown on their website. They will also be showcasing the new tool at the Strata+Hadoop World Conference, which will be hosted in San Jose between 29th and 31st March, allowing companies to see first-hand how the system works.
