Big Data / Internet of Things (IoT)
Data output is growing at an astonishing rate. Ninety percent of the world’s data has been generated in the last two years.1 And by 2020, every human being on the planet will produce an estimated 1.7 megabytes of new information every second.2 Organizations need to rapidly ingest, contextualize, and analyze this “big data”.
A subset of big data, the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem includes physical devices and objects, as well as the electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enable those devices and objects to collect and share data. Today, IoT is helping organizations enhance their products and services, monitor operations in real time, track sales and other activity, develop location-based discounts, assess and manage customer experience, and uncover operational improvements.
Watch our latest video and see how you can collect and manage your big data faster and more efficiently with iWay Big Data Integrator
Information Builders' 3i solutions - integration, integrity, and intelligence - let your company natively ingest, cleanse, integrate, and analyze big data, harnessing it to make it work with existing applications and processes and transforming it into valuable insight.
Native Data Management in Hadoop
Using our iWay Big Data Integrator, big data sources - whether at rest or in motion - can be contextualized into integrated data sets to support downstream business processes. iBDI makes it easy to manage data using native Hadoop facilities (such as Sqoop, Flume, and Spark) without having to manage the complexities of the underlying environments or write native code.
If you have trouble finding people with the right skill sets to write the code needed for Hadoop-based data managment processes, iWay Big Data Integrator can help.
Big Data Analytics Made Easy
The WebFOCUS business intelligence and analytics platform can incorporate big data into any analytical process. Business users don't need to know anything about Hive, JSON, Avro, or other details to be able to create startlingly rich, interactive visualizations, dashboards, and reports.
Also, since queries get pushed back to Hadoop for native handling, WebFOCUS automatically lets you leverage any query accelerators or SQL-on-Hadoop interfaces you may have, while ensuring that you're maximizing the use of the Hadoop cluster - and it does this without any interference from your BI developers or business analytics tool users.
Using Hadoop for analytics involves tradeoffs. In those situations where accessing Hadoop directly doesn't make sense, our technology makes it simple to extract the data you want, store it in a high-performing analytical database, and execute large numbers of queries that can scale across thousands of users - all using the same metadata and tooling you already have.
