Hewlett-Packard Co. this week rolled out cloud-based analytics as-a-service, giving partners a new option for delivering Big Data capabilities in an on-demand model that obviates large capital investments.
HP’s new Big Data Discovery Experience as a Service is built on the HP HAVEn Big Data analytics platform and delivered by HP Enterprise Services. Available services include analysis of customer intelligence, supply chain and operations, and sensor data. Big Data Discovery Experience as a Service aims to help end users in verticals like media, retail, transportation and government better leverage their data to increase sales, improve supply chain performance, detect fraud and waste, and root out security risks.
The underlying Hadoop-capable HP HAVEn platform combines HP Autonomy IDOL, HP Vertica Analytics Platform, HP ArcSight Security Event Manager and HP ArcSight Logger. The solution can work with large and complex sets of structured and unstructured data including image, audio, text and machine-generated information.
“Harnessing the value of information is a top priority for our clients and a Big Data solution is a significant investment of time and money for any organization, regardless of industry,” said Dragan Rakovich, chief technologist for information management and analytics at HP Enterprise Services. Rakovich said his group leveraged “HP HAVEn’s unified approach to Big Data to provide a low-risk, simplified and accelerated entry path to addressing key client business problems.”
