Mar 02, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Karmasphere, a Big Data Intelligence company, announced they are working with Microsoft Corp. and HortonWorks to provide Big Data Analytics on Microsoft's Hadoop for Windows Server and Windows Azure.
Through this collaboration, Karmasphere will offer software for unlocking Big Data Intelligence for Microsoft Windows Server and Windows Azure.
The Company said Karmasphere equips businesses to overcome the skills shortage in the Big Data market. Bringing the power of data science to business analysts, Karmasphere Analyst provides a collaborative, workspace designed exclusively for Big Data Analytics using SQL. Karmasphere Studio on-boards mainstream developers to Hadoop, providing a specialized graphical environment for learning, implementing and optimizing MapReduce algorithms and data transformations. Karmasphere Analyst runs on and supports open source Apache Hive, the market standard for query access to Hadoop, avoiding the proprietary lock-in of other solutions in the market.
"Karmasphere is a fast-moving and recognized provider of strategic tooling for mining insights specifically on Hadoop," said Herain Oberoi, director Microsoft Server and Tools Business, "We are pleased to be working with Karmasphere as they expand their solutions for Microsoft Windows Server and Windows Azure."
"Microsoft's commitment to Apache Hadoop and its growing ecosystem is another major boost for the world of Big Data" said Martin Hall, Founder Karmasphere. "Microsoft's market entry will accelerate the adoption of Big Data across the enterprise."
Both Karmasphere and Microsoft are key exhibitors and presenters at the O'Reilly Strata Conference in Santa Clara. Karmasphere's Martin Hall will speak on "Becoming a Data Driven Organization," and will join Microsoft's Alexander Stojanovic in presenting "Unleash Insights On All Data With Microsoft Big Data".
