NEW YORK, October 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

SiSense, the Big Data Analytics Company, today announced the opening of its offices on Wall Street and unveiled new patent-pending In-Chip 2.0 technology with Crowd Accelerated Analytics™. This innovation to SiSense Prism provides business users with faster query results as loads increase. It also allows businesses to scale to thousands of simultaneous users on a single box. SiSense is demonstrating Crowd Accelerated Analytics at the Strata Conference +Hadoop World (booth 70).

While performance of traditional solutions degrades with increased load, Crowd Accelerated Analytics technology nets faster and smarter query results as users increase. Costly bottlenecks are avoided and users benefit from each other's queries even when queries are not identical.

"Until now, the conversation has been around scaling data," says Eldad Farkash, Co-Founder and CTO, SiSense. "But what about scaling massive amounts of users and queries? Old school BI nets users limited answers to limited questions. Crowd Accelerated Analytics lets you analyze billions of rows of data in a flash."

Crowd Accelerated Analytics is the only big data analytics technology to speed up as the number of users increases (more users = faster results). Traditional BI tools rely on caching technology that only works well when repeat queries are identical. But business users do not often ask identical questions of their data. While other solutions slow down or choke under the strain of increasing users with unique queries, SiSense Prism increases efficiency and speed by learning from results of similar but not identical queries.

"Our entire business model is built on performance, so access to data in a timely manner is mission critical," says Motti Mor, Chief Client Officer, RealMatch. "SiSense allows us to analyze the massive amounts of data we have across multiple systems, in the speed and frequency we need to grow our business."

During last winter's Strata Conference, SiSense Prism won the Startup Showcase "Audience Choice" Award by demonstrating its record-breaking ability to analyze 10TB of data in 10 seconds on a single node standard Dell server.  Now, in addition to its proven ability to scale terabytes of data, Prism adds the capacity to scale to thousands of users on a single box.

"SiSense allows us to build real-time dashboards and reports which support our internal business and tech operations teams," says Elad Efraim, CTO and Co-Founder, eXelate. "We're able to make faster business decisions and identify problems close to real-time."

The Technology Behind Crowd Accelerated Analytics

"While other solutions get clunky and costlier as load increases, SiSense Prism gets faster and overcomes the increased expenses associated with slow-downs," says Amit Bendov, CEO, SiSense. "It's like we're breaking the laws of physics. We call it power querying."

Crowd Accelerated Analytics adds a significant scale boost to SiSense's unique In-Chip technology, which already surpasses traditional In-Memory when it comes to analyzing massive amounts of data. The technology is easier to use and much more affordable than legacy solutions, does not require data warehousing, and breaks capacity barriers faced by traditional in-memory solutions. Prism includes a high-performance database, ETL capabilities and beautiful interactive visualizations.

SiSense Prism features Include:

  • Ability to analyze 100x more data than RAM based in-memory solutions, 10X faster.
  • Runs on commodity, "off-the-shelf" hardware
  • Comes with Out-of-The-Box Web based visualizations based on HTML 5 and JavaScript
  • New visualizations including Scatter Map, Area Map, Scatter Chart, Point Chart, Radar Chart, Polar Charts, Wind Rose, Spider Web, Polar, Radar, Range Chart, Bar, Column, Funnel and many others.
  • Provides automatic extraction ("ETL") from all major databases including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, IBM DB2, Teradata, PostgreSQL and Intuit QuickBase, and applications like, Google Adwords, Google Analytics, Google Spreadsheets, Zendesk and Intuit QuickBooks, and data from Hadoop/Hive, Amazon Redshift, Heroku PostgreSQL and SAP (beta).
  • New SQL HTTP API SQL queries against the ElastiCube.  Enables users to use SQL to query the ElastiCube for their own applications (results can be obtained in JSON or as CSV format).
