Big Data and Hadoop are somewhat synonymous terms these days, since the latter offers an important technological platform to tackle the challenge of analyzing large volumes of data. By the same token, predictive analytics is paramount for companies to extract value and insight from big data. It is in this context that Zementis brings its standards-based predictive scoring engine into a variety of Big Data platforms, including the cloud as well as in-database. By offering the Universal PMML Plug-in (UPPI) for Hadoop, Zementis takes a big step in making its technology available for companies around the globe to easily deploy, execute, and integrate scalable standards-based predictive analytics on a massive parallel scale through the use of Hive, a data warehouse system for Hadoop, and Datameer, an end-to-end BI solution that works on top of Hadoop.
UPPI brings together essential technologies, offering the best combination of open standards and scalability for the application of predictive analytics. It fully supports the Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML), the de facto standard for data mining applications, which enables the integration of predictive models from IBM/SPSS, SAS, R, and many more.
UPPI for Hadoop/Hive
Hive makes it possible for large datasets stored in Hadoop compatible systems to be easily analyzed. Since it provides a mechanism to project structure onto the data, Hive allows for queries to be made using a SQL-like language called HiveQL.
|Once deployed in UPPI, predictive models turn into UDFs (User-defined Functions). These can then be invoked directly in HiveQL. In this way, UPPI offers Hadoop users the best combination of open standards and scalability for the application of predictive analytics.|
UPPI for Hadoop/Hive delivers instant and scalable scoring for Big Data while retaining compatibility with most major data mining tools through the PMML Standard. It also brings brings the scalability of Hadoop to the execution of predictive analytics.
UPPI for Datameer
|Zementis and Datameer have partnered to deliver standards-based execution of predictive analytics on a massive parallel scale. This joint solution combines the Zementis plug-in for execution of predictive models with the power and scale of Datameer, an end-to-end BI solution that includes data source integration, an analytics engine, visualization and dashboarding.|
|Datameer uses Apache Hadoop, a Java-based framework that supports the parallel storage and processing of large data sets in a distributed environment, as its back-end storage and processing engine to scale cost-effectively to 4000 servers and petabytes of data. It provides wizard-based data integration to integrate large datasets of structured and unstructured data, integrated analytics with familiar spreadsheet-like interface and over 200 built-in analytic functions and drag and drop reporting and dashboarding visualization for end-users. Open API's for data integration, analytics and dashboarding make it easy to access custom data sources, utilize advanced or custom analytics like predictive modeling as well as custom visualizations.|
