Karmasphere to Showcase First Big Data Workspace for SQL Analysts at Strata '13

Karmasphere™, the leader in Big Data Analytics, today announced it will showcase its big data workspace for SQL analysts at Strata '13. More mainstream companies are realizing the business potential of big data analytics to deliver more personalized and relevant products and experiences for their customers. Karmasphere makes big data exploration of Hadoop possible for a much broader set of people who already use SQL. Karmasphere’s technology is designed from the ground up to support Apache Hive and HQL - the defacto SQL interface for Hadoop data.

For data-driven companies, finding and acting on big data Insights is about helping teams of people more effectively collaborate. Through its web-based social interface, Karmasphere users collaborate by setting up projects, inviting diverse project team members, and sharing and re-using each other’s work. New features to further enhance usability, self-service analytics and collaboration include:

  • 30 New Hadoop-Compliant User-Defined Functions and Parsers - New plug-n-play functions range from simple moving average functions to advanced data mining algorithms requiring multi-factor queries such as Naïve Bayes Classifier and Graph Analysis algorithms. With these additions, Karmasphere offers more than 250 pre-packaged functions and parsers.
  • Search and Browse Asset Repository - Karmasphere has added the ability to search and browse all analytics assets in the Karmasphere environment, including Hive tables, queries, pre-packaged functions, parsers and more. Reuse of these assets reduces time to market for big data projects.
  • Enhanced Ingestion Engine –, A wizard-based interface makes it even easier to access big data sources such as Oracle, MySQL, Teradata and many others.

“Our goal is to give teams of analysts an easy but powerful way to explore their data and effectively manage their insights and assets using the skills they already have, without getting locked-into proprietary approaches,” said Manish Jiandani, Karmasphere’s Sr. Director, Product Management.

Karmasphere is the first collaborative big data workspace for self-service analytics without IT involvement. Its end-to-end, automated workflow, designed specifically for data analysts, provides support for data ingestion, data cleansing, provisioning Hive tables and running and scheduling queries. In addition to developing their own analytic functions, analysts can use Karmasphere’s extensive suite of pre-packaged functions and parsers for Hadoop to quickly analyze data. Karmasphere also offers an Open API for integration with business applications.

Karmasphere will demonstrate the latest version of its big data workspace at the upcoming Strata ’13 conference, booth #308, February 26-28.
