One of the reasons that Big Data analytics is so cumbersome and expensive to implement is all the requisite software modules required to build a compete application. Accelerite today moved to reduce that complexity with the launch of ShareInsights 2.0, which combines data preparation, visualization, collaboration and OLAP software in single offering providing a consistent user interface across all functions.
Designed to be layered on top of any instances of Hadoop, Mukund Deshpande, vice president of data analytics for Accelerite, says realizing the value of investments in Big Data analytics takes too long because internal IT organizations are being asked to stitch together various modules from different vendors that all sport different interfaces. The need to hire developers to achieve that goal results in much higher total cost of ownership (TCO) costs, adds Deshpande.
“Our approach results in 60 percent less TCO,” says Deshpande.
Longer term, it’s not clear yet if there will be a major consolidation across the stack of software needed today to deploy a Big Data analytics application. Many organizations have already invested in separate data visualization and data preparation tools.
But for organizations, Deshpande says the sheer cost of investing in Big Data analytics has been prohibitive, which he says conspires to limit adoption. By providing a more holistic approach to Big Data analytics, Accelerite is betting the overall number of organizations willing to invest in a Big Data analytics platform is about to significantly increase.
