Actian (the company formerly known as Ingres) announced two new platforms, the Actian DataCloud and ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform, which it says will help customers tackle the challenges of what it calls the ‘Age of Data’.
The two platforms are claimed to enable the various data management and integration bits and pieces needed for effective Big Data analytics, such as data connection, through data preparation and all the way to automated action.
The Actian DataCloud Platform offers integration, including prebuilt one-click integration of SaaS and on-premise apps.
The ParAccel Big Data Analytics Platform is said to be a real-time, high-performance platform that extracts analytic value from data while removing constraints around size, speed and complexity of analytics.
"Companies can predict the future, prescribe the next best action, prevent damage to their business and discover hidden risks and opportunities," the firm said. "Business users are able to run sophisticated analytics and cooperative processing without deep data science skills."
Steve Shine, CEO of Actian, said, "We believe that every company, no matter its size, should harness the promise of big data and analytics, and we’ve invested hundreds of man-years and millions of dollars to deliver two scalable, completely modern platforms that marry our decades of data expertise with innovative, cutting-edge architectures."
"To win in the Age of Data, organizations must become action-enabled enterprises with access to unconstrained analytics and frictionless data integration. Our modular approach delivers the quickest time to value with phenomenal scalability to future-proof your business," Shine added.
