SiSense Announces the World's Smallest Big Data Analytics

SiSense Announces the World's Smallest Big Data Analytics Solution 
SiSense to Crunch 1TB of Data on a Sub-$1,000 Laptop at O'Reilly
Strata + Hadoop World, Puts Big Data Analytics Technology in the
Hands of Non-Techies 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 10/22/12 --  SiSense, the Big Data
Analytics Company, will showcase its unique approach to Big Data
Analytics, designed to solve challenges that stump current solutions
and offer an alternative both accessible and affordable to all
businesses, from startups and SMBs to enterprises.  
At the O'Reilly Strata conference, SiSense (booth 22) will analyze 1
Terabyte of data on a laptop with only 8GB of RAM to demonstrate the
analytical processing power of its technology. The laptop used for
the demonstration is a standard Dell Vostro 3560 that can be
purchased for under $750. 
SiSense Prism is the first solution built to offer Big Data Analytics
technology for any size business, without requiring deep technical
skills, huge budgets, expensive hardware, or data warehousing. The
software package provides everything a business needs to get insights
from Big Data at a fraction of the cost associated with other
solutions: a high performance analytical database, simple data
extraction ("ETL"), and web-based data visualization. 
"There's a lot of hype around Big Data Analytics but even the biggest
companies are struggling because of the massive infrastructure,
budgets and specialized skills required," says SiSense CEO Amit
Bendov. "Prism levels the Big Data playing field so that businesses
of all sizes can get in the game." 
According to CIO Magazine, the top challenges for Big Data Analytics
initiatives include limited budgets, lengthy deployment times, and a
skills shortage. Wikibon estimates SAP Hana licenses run between
$300K - $2M. Wall Street Journal states that Big Data projects can
cost upwards of $10M, placing them out of reach for most companies.
Prism solves these pain points and puts Big Data Analytics on
standard environments and into the hands of non-techies.  
SiSense Prism is powered by its Elasticube(TM) technology featuring
In-Memory Columnar Datastore, strong data compression, parallel
processing, and advanced query optimization to offer analytical
processing power previously available only with high-e
nd solutions.
It allows non-technical users to analyze 100 times more data at least
10 times the speed of current in-memory analytics solutions. There's
no need to set up complex data warehouse systems or OLAP cubes. And
there's no need for coding or scripting, regardless where data comes
from or how big it is.  
"Until today, companies had two options for Data Analytics: complex
and pricey tools that can handle big and complex data, or pure
in-memory tools that are simple to start but are expensive to scale,"
says Bendov. "Prism changes all that, and makes Big Data Analytics a
no-brainer for millions of businesses," he continues. 
Since its launch, SiSense Prism is being adopted at an incredible
pace by hundreds of companies who choose its revolutionary technology
over the costly traditional approaches. SiSense's customers include
companies of all types from small startups to large brands such as
Merck and Target. 
"The other in-memory analytics leaders seemed to require a team to
implement and manage," says Plastic Jungle CTO Ashmit Bhattacharya,
who evaluated several solutions on production datasets before they
selected SiSense. 
Dave Mariani, VP of Engineering at Klout, attests to the need for a
new approach: "Big Data Analytics should be accessible by companies
of all sizes. Klout's system processes 12 billion rows a day and we
analyze 1 trillion rows of granular data -- which is massive for a
company our size. We are always on the look-out for solutions which
architecture scales infinitely and which can be deployed without
requiring huge budgets or large investments in technical staff." 
SiSense Prism provides everything a business needs to succeed with
Big Data Analytics: 


 
--  Ability to process 100x more data than RAM in-memory solutions
--  Storage and query of billions of rows of data
--  Runs on commodity hardware
--  Automatic extraction ("ETL") from all major databases including
    Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL and Intuit QuickBase,
    and applications like Salesforce.com, Google Adwords, Google
    Analytics, Google Spreadsheets, Zendesk and Intuit QuickBooks, and
    data from Hadoop/Hive
--  Web based visualization based on HTML 5 and JavaScript
