Datameer Applies Business Intelligence To Big Data
Datameer touts its Datameer Analytics Solution (DAS) as a business-user-focused business intelligence (BI) platform for Hadoop. But DAS doesn't treat Hadoop as an island of information; it can connect to any data source through JDBC, Hive, HTTP, or other standards. It includes a wizard-driven integration platform that lets you schedule loads and transform large structured, semi-stuctured or unstructured datasets from any of these sources. Then you can apply any of more than 180 analytic functions through the spreadsheet-like DAS interface. Business users get drag-and-drop reporting and dashboarding capabilities. DAS runs on private or public clouds with a REST API available for data imports and exports.
