Strata 2013: Get Paid for Building Big Data Apps!

By on February 25, 2013

If you’ve ever dreamed about making millions off of building an iPhone app (and let’s be real, who hasn’t!), but you’ve got expertise in data, we’ve got good news for you.

Late last year at Strata New York, we announced our Datameer Analytics App Market – the first true marketplace for buying and selling pre-built big data analytic applications. We launched the marketplace with several dozen free apps, and we’ve been adding to it ever since. So its only appropriate that this week at Strata Santa Clara, we turn on that ‘paid’ feature of the app market so you can make money building apps, along with several other in-product feature enhancements in our 2.1.3 update.

Here’s the deal. We know you guys have domain expertise meaning you know your data and what kind of insights you’d want out of it. So you should get paid to create and distribute that expertise. We’re giving you the DIY tools you need to build —and now sell—your own big data analytics apps. Datameer lets you:

  • Get any data in yourself (really, we have 50+ built-in connections to Twitter, Salesforce, Oracle, DB2, Google… etc.)
  • Build your analysis with simple point-and-clicks (we’ve included more than 240 pre-built analytic functions, and you see the results instantly in our spreadsheet UI before running it against your full dataset)
  • Create custom data visualizations (no more box-after-box dashboards, our Business Infographic designer lets you drag-and-drop different charts and graphs onto a blank canvas, so you can annotate and design as you see fit)
  • Package your final product into an analytic app with a single click. It’s just a right-click ‘save as’…

From there you just fill out information about you and your new app, set your price, and you’re done. From there we’ll make sure it’s fit for the app market, and will place it in the market for you. That’s all there is to it!

There’s too much talk about the lack of Data Scientists out there. Let’s attack this problem from the other end and give business users the pre-built apps they need to simply plug in their own data and get their insights without the work. Download the free trial of Datameer to build your first app today.
