Hewlett-Packard has updated its analytics platform offering for clients, aiming to help turn big data into business assets.
The new version of the Vertica Analytics Platform called HP Vertica Crane works to load and analyze diverse semistructured data, HP said Tuesday.
Colin Mahony, HP vice president and general manager for Vertica, said the company made the update to help customers convert information into structured forms and gain insights from those data.
HP intends for users to view large volumes of data with schema technologies for analytics tasks and examine the patterns of structured and semistructured data in order to draw conclusions.
Vertica Crane is built to work with the Hadoop platform for clients to perform analytics across various datasets and sources, as well as with Hadoop’s HCatalog storage management layer for organizations to navigate and load data into the Vertica Analytics Platform.
The company also designed Vertica Crane to help customers expand analytics through the Java software development kit, comply with data security and compliance requirements and deploy services through the cloud with a new Amazon Machine Image.
Vertica Crane, part of the HP HAVEn big data analytics platform, is scheduled for worldwide release in December.
