Kyvos Launches Platform for Big Data Analytics
The company seeks to deliver a solution that eliminates the traditional performance and scalability constraints of online analytical processing.Big data analytics specialist Kyvos Insights emerged from stealth mode with a product, called Kyvos, to develop insights from all corporate data, regardless of size and granularity. The company was founded by a team of veterans from Yahoo, Impetus and Intellicus Technologies who specialize in analytics technology; it seeks to deliver a solution that eliminates the traditional performance and scalability constraints of online analytical processing (OLAP), bringing the power of interactive analytics to big data. "We were seeing broad adoption of big data infrastructures such as Hadoop in the enterprise, but the huge amounts of data being collected were not really accessible to the business user," Ajay Anand, vice president of products at Kyvos Insights, told eWEEK. "Connecting traditional analytical tools directly to Hadoop typically results in significant performance and scalability issues." To date, the product has been previewed as part of discussions on the future of OLAP in big data environments at a number of industry conferences, including the Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in March and the Hadoop Summit in June.
"Business users are looking for the ability to do self-service, interactive analytics on this data and explore different aspects and dimensions of the data without having to write complex code or wait for hours or days for the result," Anand said. "That is the pain point we address with Kyvos. Kyvos provides business users with direct access to massive amounts of data so they can interactively visualize, slice and dice, and explore their data down to the most detailed and granular levels with query response times in just seconds."
