Every year Gartner publishes the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. This report is an important resource for CIOs and the entire IT organisations in order to make the right decisions when it comes to selecting a vendor in the BI and Analytics landscape. Gartner goes through various rounds of vendor surveys and end-user interview in order to map out the capabilities of the most interesting vendors in the Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms space.
Gartner has included a section for interesting vendors that did not qualify for inclusion, which deals with “Hadoop-Based Data Discovery” vendors.
For the second year, Eligotech is proud to have been selected as one of the six global vendors in this category.
Gartner writes that “The ever-increasing amount and diversity of data has given rise to the need of and use of NoSQL dabases, such as Hadoop”. This is where a vendor like Eligotech comes into play. At Eligotech strive to solve your big-data problems with a new mindset and a powerful platform: Harpoon. Eligotech Harpoon allows users to prepare, discover and apply their big data to their business processes, and to integrate it into multiple business applications e.g. third-party BI tools, enterprise data warehouses or external data analysis solutions for use cases such as recommendation, profiling and fraud-detection. Gartner has writen with regard to integration with data warehouses, “We believe that, for the foreseeable future, Hadoop and other NoSQL data stores are more likely to complement the systems-of-record data warehouse.”
Many companies starting with Hadoop are challenged by the complexity of MapReduce, Spark, Pig, Hive, etc. Eligotech Harpoon hides this complexity by providing an easy to use web-based user-interface. The UI allows non-technical users to perform self-service Data Discovery and to obtain easy access to value, without the requirement of technical resources.
The integration with business applications is supported by providing a full set of REST APIs, JDBC/ODBC or export functionality.
