London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
Kognitio, driving the convergence of Big Data, in-memory analytics and cloud computing, today announced the release of version 8.0p with extended connectivity capabilities. The company said the new version of its flagship software makes it possible for companies to gain unbridled access to data from multiple sources at a scale and speed previously impossible. This enables them to harness the explosive growth of data from day-to-day business operations, augmented by increasingly available and affordable third-party data sets.
Kognitio made the announcement today at Big Data World Europe, where it is a gold sponsor.
The Kognitio Analytical Platform provides in-memory analytical capabilities that accelerate business intelligence tools by up to 1,000 times, while providing access to data at granular level. With version 8.0p, Kognitio sets the standard for access to data wherever it resides through the use of connectors, external tables and scripts.
Features of the latest version include:
“Kognitio has been a leader in in-memory analytical processing for more than a generation,” said Roger Gaskell, Kognitio chief technology officer. “Our latest version of the software meets the needs of today’s companies, for whom data is their very lifeblood. It also reflects the changing nature of how people access that information; where enterprise data warehouses were the norm just a short time ago, they have faded in importance with the emergence of Hadoop-based implementations. Kognitio powers the performance at the glass that today’s users require to get the time-sensitive answers they need to compete.”
Kognitio is driving the convergence of Big Data, in-memory analytics and cloud computing. Having delivered the first in-memory analytical platform in 1989, it was designed from the ground up to provide the highest amount of scalable compute power to allow rapid execution of complex analytical queries without the administrative overhead of manipulating data. Kognitio software runs on industry-standard x86 servers, or as an appliance, or in Kognitio Cloud, a ready-to-use analytical platform. Kognitio Cloud is a secure, private or public cloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), leveraging the cloud computing model to make the Kognitio Analytical Platform available on a subscription basis. Clients span industries, including market research, consumer packaged goods, retail, telecommunications, financial services, insurance, gaming, media and utilities.
