AtScale bridges the gap between business users and their data.
The average enterprise sits on a mountain of data that business users could use to drive better performance. Unfortunately, most enterprises are not equipped to gain value out of their data: according to Forrester, close to 75% of the data stored within an enterprise goes unused. Enterprises need ways to deliver data to business users with simplicity, speed and security.
Back in 2009 at Yahoo!, AtScale’s founding team experienced this first hand, and witnessed the power and potential of Hadoop and Big Data. However, we struggled to make the data in Hadoop accessible to the business users who needed it. Tired of moving data into expensive, legacy databases, the AtScale team decided to build what they could not buy. The AtScale Intelligence Platform is built on the following 3 core principles:
Hadoop is the world’s most scalable, open source MPP data platform. Why load data into expensive and proprietary database engines just so it can be queried? With AtScale, data stays right where it landed, eliminating the cost, latency and complexity that comes with moving data.
You’ve invested in great BI tools. Your users should be able to leverage them for Big Data too. AtScale makes just about any BI tool scream on Hadoop. Now business users can use the tools they already know and love on Hadoop.
So much data, so many places and so many BI tools. How can an enterprise deliver consistent and secure data to them all? AtScale’s Virtual Cubes deliver a single semantic layer, providing consistency, fast performance, and data governance regardless of the type of access.
