CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hadapt, the only data analytics platform natively integrating SQL with Apache Hadoop, today announced version 2.0 of its Adaptive Analytical Platform. The new release features the industry's first interactive applications on Hadoop, via Hadapt Interactive Query; the Hadapt Development Kit (HDK) for custom analytics; and integration with Tableau Software.

"There is significant demand in the market to leverage Hadoop for Big Data analytics," said Merv Adrian, Research VP at Gartner. "Two key enablers must be addressed for the business analyst community: 1) interactive query capabilities coupled with continuous data ingestion, and 2) advanced analytics packaged as SQL functions that can be natively integrated with existing BI tools."

Hadapt resolves both issues, accelerating the production deployment of Hadoop in the enterprise. Hadapt 2.0 empowers analysts to conduct investigative analytics on all of their data (structured, unstructured or semi-structured) in a single, unified platform, using standard business intelligence tools like Tableau. The new release also includes the HDK, allowing analysts to create advanced SQL analytic functions that can be used for campaign analysis, full text search, funnel analysis, sentiment analysis, pattern matching and predictive modeling.

"The integration of Tableau with Hadapt's Interactive Query capabilities delivers access to advanced analytics on Hadoop via SQL at petabyte scale," said Daniel Jewett, VP of Product Management at Tableau. "The combination of our products allows business analysts to bridge the gap to the full Hadoop analytic ecosystem."

"The idea of interactive applications on Hadoop was one of the founding ideas behind the company, and today we're making it a reality," said Hadapt CEO Justin Borgman. "For a long time, there's been this incredibly powerful tool, Hadoop, that was limited to the technically-savvy community. Now, it's here for the masses: interactive, massive-scale data processing—on any type of data—using commodity hardware and a familiar SQL interface."

Hadapt has been selected as a Startup Showcase finalist at the O'Reilly Strata Conference and Hadoop World in New York City October 23rd-25th, where it will demonstrate the new release. Availability of Hadapt 2.0 is planned for early Q1 2013. For more information, visit www.hadapt.com.
