Introducing Datameer Smart Execution: It’s Not Big Data, It’s Just Data

By on October 1, 2014

Big data seems to have reached the level of an exclusive club that everyone is trying to get in to but that only a select few of the aristocracy are welcome. It seems the more data you have, the more difficult it is to figure out what to do with it or how to extract meaningful insight and you need a lot of resources, hardware and data scientists to be admitted in with the cool crowd.

The latest discussion is around the size of your data. If it’s too small, then you can’t use MapReduce so turn around, you’re not getting into the club tonight. If you only have large data? Then you better make sure you’re not in line for the in-memory or single-node club.

In our four years in the industry, we have prided ourselves in staying true to our vision of simplifying big data so it’s easy and accessible for everyone. It’s a club that everyone is welcome to and everyone has a right to join. Our team has spent countless hours developing an application that can deal with complex and multi-source data so that users can get the access they need to make impactful business decisions.

I am extremely excited today to announce Datameer 5.0 with Smart ExecutionTM, a patent-pending technology that allows users to work with mixed data sizes. In short, it doesn’t matter if you’re working with small data, or big data, whether it needs to be analyzed in MapReduce, in a single Hadoop node, or in-memory. Smart Execution intelligently and dynamically selects the most optimized compute framework for each step of an analytics job. Now users don’t have to think about which the best technology is to analyze their data because it’s intelligently done for them, and they can instead spend their time focusing on discovering insights that matter.

We believe in making great technology accessible to everyone and with this release, we’re taking another problem off of the shoulders of users by intelligently selecting the best computation framework for them. Users should not have to deal with the underlying technology but instead focus their efforts on analyzing the data and discovering impactful insights.

We want everyone in this big data club. Power to the user!
