(PRWEB) June 20, 2013
28msec, Inc., the Information Agility Company, today announced the launch of the company and its first product in front of a live audience of 500 attendees at the GigaOM Structure Conference in San Francisco. 28msec is bringing to market 28.io, the very first Information Processing Platform (IPP). 28.io promises to reduce the time taken to develop and run complex queries on SQL and NoSQL databases by an order of magnitude over existing solutions, reducing development time from hours to minutes. As a result, businesses can quickly transform data into useful information for faster time to market and competitive advantage.
Until today, businesses could not quickly retrieve and process data from multiple formats (JSON, XML, HTML, relational data, CSV, text, etc.), located in various data stores including both SQL and NoSQL sources using one single language and platform. Developers had to manually glue together multiple technologies and write customized code, a complex, slow, error-prone and costly process. With the introduction of 28.io, the data management landscape changes and information agility is finally possible.
“28msec is proud to launch today and unveil an industry-first technology that will disrupt and revolutionize the world of data management,” said Eric Kish, 28msec CEO. “There are so many silos of data within organizations it makes it impossible to turn that data into actionable information that organizations can use to drive their business. That stops today. Finally, organizations can access and utilize the vast amounts of data they have, in real-time, regardless of data store or data format.”
“With the huge explosion in disparate data types and data stores, enterprise data is increasingly locked in silos,” said John Myers, Senior Analyst for Business Intelligence at Enterprise Management Associates. “There is a real need for technology solutions that enables businesses to quickly and easily bring data from any store or format, together in real-time and turn it into high-value information business stake holders can utilize. The 28.io platform represents a technology designed specifically to address some of today’s most significant data integration and management challenges.”
The 28.io platform – sold as a service or as an “on-premise” solution – delivers real-time ETL-like capabilities for any data format (JSON, XML, relational, html, text, and more) from any structured or non-structured data source available today. 28.io uses the open specification JSONiq query language to quickly perform any information processing procedure – from filtering, sorting correlating, aggregating, searching, etc. all the way to publishing, storing, indexing, communicating and exporting data in the users data format of choice (PDF, XML, CVS, etc.).
“Within a few weeks, the 28.io platform allowed us to go from a specification document to a fully functioning search engine encompassing nearly every trademark registered at the U.S Patent and Trademark Office since 1845,” said Luke Brean Esq. Trademark Attorney at Brean Law. “The database is updated daily with thousands of changes and new entries and will allow clients and prospects to identify if their desired trademark is likely available for registration. Using 28.io, we were able to take roughly 100 GB of XML data and quickly normalize it, generate phonetic strings, and create millions of HTML pages for the public-facing website, all indexed and searchable in MongoDB with a minimal amount of developer time.”
28msec designed 28.io from the ground up to be the leading IPP, with enhanced features such as real-time capabilities, comprehensive and robust information processing functionality and tight integration with industry leading data bases like MongoDB. Enterprises can rely on 28.io because it is:
- Open: The 28msec platform is built using the open specification JSONiq language and the open source ZORBA processing engine, enabling users to benefit from community driven developments.
- Agnostic: 28msec’s platform is data-source agnostic, enabling querying and joining multiple data sources and in various formats: among them are NoSQL (e.g. MongoDB, Couchbase), SQL (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server), XML, or Web Services.
- Powerful: Beyond the normal capabilities of the SQL language to filter, sort, correlate, aggregate, update, and search we provide additional capabilities to transform, publish, store, index, communicate (protocols), or import/export various data formats.
- Fast: An in-browser high productivity development environment is available to write and run queries dramatically slashing development and testing time. In addition, our highly scalable architecture dramatically reduces query execution time through inter- and intra-query parallelization, removing the query processing load from database servers.
Pricing and Availability
Available immediately as a service, customers can create an account today and immediately begin using 28.io, the leading IPP. 28.io is a freemium platform-as-a-service with a free version for prototyping and small projects (up to 20 thousand queries per month and 256mb of data). Paid versions are priced based on processing power starting at $1500per month and include dedicated machines, as well as query parallelization.
Headquartered in Palo Alto, CA, 28msec is the Information Agility Company. Its world first Information Processing Platform, built on the open specification JSONiq language and the open source ZORBA technology, enables enterprises to quickly extract data out of ANY source and transform that data into actionable information. 28msec was founded in 2008 and is privately funded. The company raised successive rounds of private funding totaling $5.5m and developed the platform over 5 years building on experience accumulated in query processing technologies since 1995.
