SAN MATEO, Calif., June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Datameer, Inc. today announced a revolutionary new release of its big data analytics solution, which seamlessly combines data integration, analytics and visualization of any data type, size, or source, in one easy-to-use application. For the first time ever, Datameer 2.0 brings the power of Apache Hadoop directly to the desktop, with Hadoop natively embedded in two of three new editions of the application. Datameer Personal runs on a single desktop, while Datameer Workgroup runs on a single server. Datameer Enterprise scales to thousands of nodes and runs on any Hadoop distribution.
Additional major new features found in all three Editions of Datameer 2.0 include the industry's first Business Infographics Designer, an enhanced user interface, support for more data sources than ever, and extended OS and device support. Datameer 2.0 combines a simple spreadsheet interface with the unlimited data storage and compute powers of Hadoop, enabling business users to improve company performance, better understand customer behavior, and optimize business processes.
"Our goal is to really democratize data analytics by giving our users the tools they need to make data-driven decisions faster," said Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer. "By bypassing the traditional, slow, multi-step process of creating static schemas, we enable users to get right to analyzing and visualizing data without needing to rely on IT."
"The need to analyze more data and increase the speed of analysis are the top two demands of big data technologies, which is what Datameer 2.0 is addressing with its newest release," said Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer of Ventana Research. "Organizations have been lacking intuitive visualizations of big data from Hadoop, and Datameer's new Business Infographics provide a major leap forward in revolutionizing analytics for business."
"Nurago uses Datameer in large part because its makes us very efficient in getting the analytics we need to help drive our day to day business," said Nikolaus Pohle, CTO at Nurago. "The new user interface in Datameer 2.0 takes ease-of-use to a whole new level and certain features like the new Finder and the Sheet Dependency Overlay have had a direct impact on how quickly and efficiently we can get to, and act on, our insights."
Business Infographics on Any Device, Expanded Data Sources
With the introduction of the Business Infographics Designer, Datameer 2.0 breaks traditional box after box style of dashboards by giving users complete graphics and visualization design control. The vector-based WYSIWYG designer enables users to choose exactly how they want to visualize their data, whether its stunning infographics or more traditional reports, maps, graphs and dashboards.
Built on HTML5, Datameer 2.0 runs on any device, letting users work with and visualize their data on smart phones, tablets, desktop and laptop computers. Datameer supports all of the popular operating systems including Windows and Mac OS as well as Linux and VMWare.
Datameer 2.0 also supports more data sources than ever, adding to an already extensive list and easy-to-use API for custom integration. New sources in 2.0 include Twitter and Facebook, Netezza and COBOL as well as Teradata export. Datameer also offers improved HIVE integration, including the ability to export to HIVE as well as the previously supported HIVE data import.
