InfoCaptor Simplifies Big Data Analytics for Cloudera Enterprise


Rudrasoft, the software company that specializes in data analytics dashboard solutions, announced today that it has released an updated version of its popular InfoCaptor software, which includes integration with Cloudera Enterprise. The integration takes advantage of Impala and Apache Hive for analytics.

“Our clients are increasingly looking to adopt Hadoop for their data storage and analytics requirements and their common concern is the lack of an economical web-based platform that works with their traditional data warehouses, RDBMS and with Cloudera Enterprise”

Cloudera-certified InfoCaptor, adds native Impala functionality within Visualizer so users can leverage Date/time functions for date hierarchy visualizations, time series plots and leverage all the advanced hierarchical visualization natively on Cloudera Enterprise.

“Impala is the fastest SQL engine on Hadoop and InfoCaptor can render millions of data points into beautiful visualizations in just a blink of an eye,” said Nilesh Jethwa [founder]. “This is a great promise for the big data world and affordable analytics with sub-second response time, finally CEOs and CIOs across industries can truly dream of cultivating a data driven culture and make it a reality.”

“Cloudera welcomes InfoCaptor as a certified partner for data analytics and visualization. InfoCaptor delivers self-service BI and analytics to data analysts and business users in enterprise organizations, enabling more users to mine and search for data that uncovers valuable business insights and maximizes value from an enterprise data hub,” said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera.
