Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
On Tuesday, June 24, 2014, Actian’s Vice President of Solution and Product Marketing, John Santaferraro, and Senior Vice President of Engineering, Emma McGrattan, will discuss how companies investing in Hadoop can now broaden the scope of data discovery, increase the accuracy of decisions, and speed time to value.
In early June, Actian announced the Actian Analytics PlatformTM – Hadoop SQL Edition, the first end-to-end analytics platform built to run 100 percent natively in Hadoop, delivering the highest performing, industrial grade, fully compliant SQL in Hadoop offering. Combined with Actian’s visual data flow framework, Actian’s platform now makes Hadoop data accessible to the entire enterprise by empowering millions of business-savvy SQL users and business analysts to conduct advanced analytics directly on data in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) via YARN.
“The BBBT is a fantastic opportunity for Actian to engage with some of the industry’s brightest minds to discuss the Actian Analytics Platform – Hadoop SQL Edition,” said Mr. Santaferraro. “We are eager to reconnect with our longtime friends at the BBBT and get a range of analyst viewpoints on our strategy, differentiation, go-to-market and roadmap priorities.”
“Hadoop is the shiny new BI object that everyone wants for analytics, but it takes more than just wanting it. It has to be bullet-proof! It must be production ready and fully compliant with IT’s security, privacy, and performance SLAs. Actian promises just such an environment,” said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. “We BBBT members will assess their readiness and generate our opinions on this latest analytics platform offering on June 24th. Stay tuned.”
A podcast summarizing the presentation will be available at the BBBT Podcast page, and a video of the presentation will be available at the BBBT Videos Page.
