Easily moving data to and from Hadoop: Users can easily extract data
from Hadoop and enrich it seamlessly from within the ParAccel Platform.
Eliminating design-time friction: ParAccel Dataflow’s easy-to-use
drag-and-drop development capabilities negate the need for complex
MapReduce coding or parallel programming.
Improving performance: Actian is Hortonworks Data Platform 2.0 and
YARN certified, giving users the ability to leverage ParAccel Dataflow
for the enhanced performance of pipeline parallelism alongside their
existing MapReduce jobs.
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Corporation (“Actian”), a next-generation leader in big data
analytics, has further integrated its ParAccel
Big Data Analytics Platform on the Hortonworks Data Platform to
address top Hadoop
adoption hurdles of data extraction challenges, design-time friction and
poor run-time performance.
The deep integration of Actian’s ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform on
the Hortonworks Data Platform enables high-performance analytics without
constraints, simplifies the delivery of data services for entire
ecosystems of users, and significantly lowers the total cost of
ownership for the modern data platform. By utilizing the new Hortonworks/Actian
reference architecture, users can experience quicker time to

Sand Hill Group recently surveyed Hadoop users, primarily data
architects and CIOs, to assess their level of maturity in Hadoop
adoption and the top challenges they face. For 46.7 percent of
respondents, the top challenge was knowledge and experience with the
Hadoop platform, while 20.7 percent cited availability of Hadoop and Big
Data skills and 6.7 percent struggled with the amount of technology
development and engineering required to implement a Hadoop-based
solution. Actian’s and Hortonworks’ joint reference architecture tackles
these key challenges head-on.
