Revelytix Successful Hadoop Proof of Concept for Major U.S. Healthcare Provider

New Loom Dataset Management Product to Address Healthcare Big Data Needs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Strata Conference – Big Data software and tools provider Revelytix today announced it has successfully completed a Hadoop-based pilot for a top tier U.S. Healthcare company.

The pilot sought to establish the scalability and flexibility of Hadoop in supporting the development of new analytic models.  Once data sets were loaded into Hadoop, the approach "Start small, Scale quickly" was used.  Beginning with samples of the data sets, queries were iteratively developed and tested. Users wrote queries in standard query languages (e.g. SQL) which the Hadoop-integrated query engine compiled to MapReduce.  With each cycle the queries became progressively complex and were then deployed across the full data sets.

The pilot also sought to examine the data from new perspectives and required substantial data integration to create views which seamlessly span multiple data sets.  The healthcare company also wanted to create transparency of data with industry partners.

The Revelytix approach was to first create a domain model that described the data sets using a desired semantic set of terms.  The data was then mapped to that model and the Hadoop-integrated query engine was used to pull results from all data sets, thereby providing a complete picture – in this case, of consumer behavior.

CEO Mike Lang commented, "There are two important things we learned in this Hadoop Healthcare pilot.  First, Hadoop is extraordinarily well suited to build the analytic environment for mega-scale healthcare data such as this.  Without question, Hadoop will definitely play a big role in big data for healthcare.

"Second, our experience again confirmed the need for the Revelytix Loom solution for managing the huge complexity of Hadoop datasets such as this.  The power of Hadoop spawns files from many perspectives and analytic approaches – keeping track of the data history of each approach is a significant and ongoing challenge. Having the pre-release of the Loom data management software and workbench allowed us to keep this pilot on track.  We're looking forward to going further with this work in healthcare as well as other vertical markets such as financial services, telecommunications, life sciences and oil and gas."

Revelytix provides Loom Dataset Management for Hadoop which makes managing complex datasets easier for enterprises and their data scientists.  Loom Dataset Management for Hadoop is the product of the Revelytix team's 14 years of big data experience for large enterprises and the Department of Defense.  Loom increases the productivity of all users by adding dataset management capability to the Hadoop information processing platform.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
