SAN MATEO, Calif.--(Composite Software, the data virtualization market leader, and Alpine Data Labs, the leader in predictive analytics for big data, today announced a partnership to co-market an agile analytics solution to help organizations gain business value from analytics initiatives far sooner.)--
“This ‘data collection problem’ is a major challenge, and the result is that analytic teams often spend significant amounts of time collecting data, thus reducing the amount of time for model development and analysis.”
Available immediately, the joint solution provides a more streamlined way to do advanced analytics on disparate data sources from across the enterprise. Instead of waiting for major ETL and warehouse initiatives, analysts can now construct their own analytic sandboxes directly from the source systems, and, in that same sandbox environment, immediately start building predictive models on the combined data. Key capabilities of the new solution include:
- Search and access data across all major data sources throughout an organization
- Combine data into comprehensive datasets
- Rapidly deploy analytic sandboxes combining consolidated and virtually linked data sets
- Perform sophisticated data transformations and analyses
- Build, test and score models leveraging more-complete data sets
- Quickly evolve data sources and models as needed
“Nearly all predictive analytics applications—whether churn modeling, customer targeting, campaign optimization or fraud detection—require combining a variety of data from disparate internal and external sources,” said John Myers, senior analyst for business intelligence at Enterprise Management Associates. “This ‘data collection problem’ is a major challenge, and the result is that analytic teams often spend significant amounts of time collecting data, thus reducing the amount of time for model development and analysis.”
“Composite’s data virtualization solutions solve the frustrations of gaining cost-effective and timely access to critical data,” said Steven Hillion, Alpine Data Labs chief product officer and founder of the analytics group at Greenplum. “Composite provides immediate and agile access to data from a full array of sources, including data on the desktop through the enterprise, in the cloud and across the web. Composite brings these sources together into a unified analytic data hub that allows for easy querying and joining of datasets instead of having to wait for deployment of cumbersome ETL,” Hillion said.
“As a CTO, I am impressed by Alpine Data Labs’ innovative approach to performing predictive analytics,” said Composite Software CTO David Besemer. “Their in-database technology wisely takes advantage of the analytics processing power inherent in today’s enterprise data platforms. This allows them to focus on simplifying the process of mining, modeling and scoring the data, thereby opening up analytics to a far larger user community.”
