Simplifying Big Data and Analytics Processes
Dell has unveiled a new solution that is helping to simplify big data and analytics processes for new Hadoop users.
The solution, which is co-designed with Cloudera and Syncsort and is powered by Intel, streamlines the planning, design, construction and deployment process of transforming data into a ready state of analysis. Then it loads this data for business reporting or for query, which is a process known as ETL (extract, transform and load).
While many businesses want to adopt big data and analytics technologies, Hadoop expertise can be difficult to find. This prevents businesses from performing big data tasks without disrupting their IT staff and environment, such as paying consulting fees or dedicating time and resources into training. To address this problem, the new solution helps businesses achieve faster insights without needing staff to learn new skillsets, retooling IT environments or hiring additional resources.
In fact the solution, dubbed the Dell | Cloudera | Syncsort Data Warehouse Optimization – ETL Offload Reference Architecture, was designed, tested and validated specifically for customers looking for a cost-effective, faster and a more efficient solution for ETL workloads. The reference architecture integrates Syncsort’s DMX-h technology to enable the use of intuitive tools to develop and deploy Hadoop ETL jobs without requiring users to learn new code. Other benefits of the solution include cost savings, quicker access to data insights and customizable solutions.
“Businesses are increasingly requiring quicker, cost effective and richer data insights to drive and accelerate their business results,” said Jim Ganthier, VP and GM of Engineered Solutions and Cloud, Dell. “Dell and Cloudera continue to jointly bring to market breakthrough big data and analytics solutions that deliver on those needs. Our new solution, which now incorporates Syncsort, will bring the power of big data insights to a whole new set of users who were once unable to justify the costs and complications of previously available commercial solutions.”
