In order to maximize the benefits of IoT data, it’s critical to reflect on why we are gathering this data to begin with,” says Mike Maciag, chief operating officer for big-data-as-a-service firm, Altiscale. “It’s great that we have the ability to sense, transmit, and store IoT data, but organizations can easily get lost in the data.
ODPi announced that other members have come on board to align their own distributions in a likewise manner. This includes Altiscale, a Hadoop-as-a-Service provider with its own Hadoop distribution.
Hadoop in the cloud, and other Big Data technologies provided as a service, have emerged as popular alternatives for enterprises that don’t want to manage the minutiae of running these technologies at scale and in production.
Altiscale, a provider of big data as a service, recently launched Altiscale Insight Cloud, a self-service analytics service that allows business analysts to rapidly query a data lake using familiar business intelligence tools such as Tableau and Excel without heavy involvement from the IT department.
In my view, Altiscale has dramatically increased the appeal of its portfolio with the launch of the Altiscale Insight Cloud and a partnership with Tableau, which will bring enhanced versatility and power to Altiscale’s set of services for Big Data.
