Big Data Management in Hadoop 2.0 Made Simpler With General Availability of RedPoint Global Data Management for Hadoop

Native YARN Application Enables Companies to Drive Data Analytics More Accurately and Easily

WELLESLEY HILLS, MA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2014) - RedPoint Global Inc. (www.redpoint.net), a leading provider of data management and digital marketing software, today announced the general availability of RedPoint Data Management™ for Hadoop®, the first pure YARN data quality and data integration product on the market. With its easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface, RedPoint enables traditional data analysts to manage Big Data without requiring coding in MapReduce, a skill in increasingly short supply. 

RedPoint Global: Filling the Big Data Skills Gap

The shortage of skilled data workers is often cited as a key reason that Big Data has not yet achieved its fullest potential. A 2011 report by the McKinsey Global Institute noted that a shortage of talent will prevent organizations from taking advantage of Big Data. The report noted that by 2018, the United States could be short by 190,000 people with analytics skills and 1.5 million managers who know how to use Big Data to make effective decisions.

"The challenge today is that certain skillsets, such as MapReduce coding, are required to take advantage of Hadoop's benefit," said RedPoint CEO Dale Renner. "Even when these skills are available, MapReduce coding adds unnecessary time and complexity to any Big Data project. Companies need data quality and data integration solutions that can help their traditional data analysts drive accurate insights from their Big Data easily and cost-effectively. That's what RedPoint delivers."

Processing Data Natively in Hadoop

RedPoint Data Management for Hadoop was one of the first applications certified by Hortonworks as being able to process Big Data natively within a Hadoop 2.0 environment using the YARN architecture, making MapReduce unnecessary. Competing solutions are either dependent on MapReduce, or need to move data into and out of the Hadoop cluster for processing, defeating the inherent value of Hadoop's scalability and speed. With RedPoint, data is processed directly inside the cluster, saving time and valuable compute resources.

Making a Big Impact in a Short Time

Not long after the original announcement of the Hortonworks certification in October, RedPoint Global began successful engagements with early adopter customers who were interested in tapping the potential of Big Data but not incurring the steep learning curve, complexity and significant time and expense associated with MapReduce developments. In March, the company was notified it had been selected as one of the "100 Most Promising Big Data Companies" out of 2,000 vendors. The selection was based on the recommendations of a group of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and CIO Review editors. 

RedPoint CTO and Co-founder George Corugedo also recently appeared as a keynote speaker at the Big Data Innovation Summit with his talk "Gain Traction for Your Big Data Initiatives: Harness the Power of Hadoop Quickly and Cost-Effectively."

Sophisticated Data Management for Unstructured Data

RedPoint Data Management for Hadoop enables users to map unstructured data stored in Hadoop, such as web activity, social media and devices data, to existing traditional data, like customer records, prospect lists, surveys, transactions and demographics. This allows companies to utilize all data assets across the enterprise to develop more powerful analytic insights.

The sophisticated data management features of the RedPoint offering include: identity resolution, master key management, data parsing, international address standardization, data quality, aggregations, transformations, and automations. While these capabilities are available in the traditional data world, they are largely missing from the world of Hadoop. A unique benefit of RedPoint Data Management is its ability to deliver these robust capabilities across both traditional and Hadoop data environments providing a single application and interface that spans both.

RedPoint Data Management for Hadoop installs easily on a Linux host with high-speed network connection to a Hadoop 2.0 cluster and a Windows PC/laptop (for client software). Upon set-up, the program code self-installs across the Hadoop cluster.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
