QlikTech Integrates with Cloudera Impala to Deliver QlikView Direct Discovery for Big Data Analytics

QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence (BI), today announced that QlikView Direct Discovery is fully integrated with Cloudera Impala™, the industry’s first real-time query framework for Hadoop. The latest innovation in Cloudera Enterprise, Cloudera Impala dramatically improves speed-to-insight by enabling users to perform real-time, interactive analysis directly on source data stored in Hadoop, through a familiar SQL interface. QlikView Direct Discovery eliminates the need to download large data sources into memory by allowing QlikView to directly access information in Hadoop, displaying the results in a QlikView visualization or dashboard. QlikView Direct Discovery for Cloudera will be offered with the QlikView Version 11 upgrade, available in December 2012.

With the ability to directly access source data stored in Hadoop for QlikView Direct Discovery queries, customers will gain high performance big data access with all of the associative analysis options of QlikView Business Discovery. By gaining high performance access without complicated data extracts or data silos, users maintain all the associative search options of QlikView, exploring information freely rather than being confined to a predefined path of questions. This insight for everyone can be deployed in a mobile environment or with a social and collaborative experience.

Customers, such as King.com, a worldwide leader in casual social games that has standardized their Big Data platform on Cloudera Enterprise to store massive amounts of gaming activity and customer data, will benefit from QlikView’s integration with Cloudera Impala.

“King.com chose QlikView because of its unique associative technology and interactive user interface enabling the daily business users to navigate through the massive amounts of gaming data to find what’s relevant to them,” said Mats-Olov Eriksson, Director of Data Warehousing at King.com. “With QlikView, business users can navigate and interact with the big data any way they want to; they are not limited to just following predefined drill paths defined on the HIVE queries. More importantly, they can literally see relationships in the big data with QlikView’s unique associative capability and leverage all of the dimensions of the big data with any combinations during its analysis. As our data size grows, we will be expanding the Hadoop infrastructure, which makes QlikView’s integration with Cloudera Impala a win-win situation for us.”

“IT professionals and business leaders are looking to derive tangible value from their Big Data implementations, by providing an analytics layer that can both access data, and make it relevant and accessible to users across their organization,” said Tim Stevens, vice president of business and corporate development at Cloudera. “Through its integration with Cloudera, QlikTech’s customers can now benefit from a comprehensive solution designed for Big Data analytics on Hadoop that will enable them to take full advantage of the enhanced query processing power of Cloudera Impala.”

“Big Data users need to focus in on the specific slices of the original diverse data sources which are useful for answering specific business questions without losing sight of the bigger picture. QlikView is about building these specific apps downstream from the Big Data system,” said Anthony Deighton, chief technology officer at QlikTech. “Cloudera Impala brings significant performance advances to accessing data in Hadoop, which, combined with QlikView’s associative experience, will enable our customers to continue discovering business value from their data, regardless of the variety or volume.”
