Quest Software Expands its Big Data Solution with new Hadoop-centric Software Capabilities for Business Analytics
NEW YORK – Hadoop World 2012 – Oct. 23, 2012 ─ Quest Software, Inc. (now part of Dell) announced three significant product releases today aimed at helping customers more quickly adopt Hadoop and exploit their Big Data. When used together, the three products offer a complete solution that addresses the greatest challenge with Hadoop: the shortage of technical and analytical skills needed to gain meaningful business insight from massive volumes of captured data. Quest builds on its long history in data and database management to open the world of Big Data to more than just the data scientist.
Transform Diverse Big Data into Actionable Intelligence
o Removing the complexities of Hadoop, MapReduce and other technical aspects of massive-scale computing, and focusing instead on workflow pipelines to achieve specific analysis and data mining results
o Transforming Big Data content mining problems into consumable analysis with a user-centered environment for developing content-mining workflows
o Combining ranked search and auto-suggest views with the ability to analyze and make sense of huge amounts of unstructured information, so the analyst receives not just a ranked list, but also an intelligent, analysis-based view of their query
o Filling Big Data intelligence needs for diverse requirement encompassing sales/marketing; financial; intellectual property management; network data; legal informatics; and media content.
Pricing and Availability:
“I’m really excited about these new solutions. Our customers want to adopt Hadoop faster because of the cost savings it offers over traditional data management technologies. But, Hadoop alone is not the answer, and neither is a data warehouse, or an existing corporate BI implementation. Customers want easy-to-use, self-service analytics to extract intelligence from data, no matter what systems they use or where the data is stored. And, they need tools to help existing staff manage both the new and old systems together. Simply put, that’s exactly what we’re delivering.”
“With Quest, Dell is committed to providing our customers with solutions that harness Big Data, and bring the best return on their vast information and data assets. The new Big Data analytics toolset helps find hidden patterns and other unknown information that traditional BI solutions can’t see in large amounts of traditional and non-traditional data, enabling organizations to make decisions that deliver better business results.”
