ClearStory Data Partners with Hortonworks to Deliver Scalable Spark Based Data Analysis and Data Governance for Hadoop Data Lake Initiatives

ClearStory Data announced at the Spark Summit East conference, that it has teamed up with Hortonworks(r) to address the requirements of large-scale data processing on data residing in Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP(TM)) and data governance for Hadoop data lake initiatives. The end goal of the ClearStory Data integration with HDP is faster data processing through ClearStory's Spark-based analytics engine, robust data governance and business-ready data exploration for meaningful insights. Enterprises in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries are quickly ramping up their data lake initiatives to harness the terabytes and petabytes of internal and external data for fast business answers and deeper data intelligence. The combination of ClearStory Data's solution with HDP allows these organizations to reach bigger insights, faster, and enable business groups to answer new questions from large volumes of data in HDP. Use cases span clinical trial analysis to assess drug effectiveness and speed the cycle from diagnosis to cures, medical issues by region and demographics, human and device-generated sensor data, as well as analysis of prescription drug uptake based on diagnosis and demographics. Organizations can now leverage their data lake consisting of many disparate data sources to perform data analysis and make fast decisions that have immediate impact on patient care and diagnosis. ClearStory Data's Spark-based data processing and analytics solutions along with its data governance capabilities make it possible for these organizations to accelerate their data lake initiatives with HDP.

ClearStory Data Announces First Interactive and Collaborative Data Storytelling Solution

ClearStory Data announced the addition of interactive and Collaborative StoryBoards(TM), to its data intelligence solution. ClearStory enables fast, disparate data harmonization powered by Spark technology, deep exploration of data and in-context user collaboration to speed data-driven decisions. With today's unveiling of interactive, Collaborative StoryBoards at the 2014 Strata Conference + Hadoop World in New York, organizations can empower all key business stakeholders to engage in rich, interactive storytelling on the latest insights, allowing more users to interact and collaborate and make decisions in context. ClearStory Data also released recent proprietary research of companies across all industries that revealed: 74% of organizations want to blend data from more than four disparate data sources. 61% spend most of their time wrangling data so they can get to a point of visual analysis. 70% want insights to be revealed faster versus taking days or weeks. 76% resort to communication via email attachments. 64% resort to spreadsheets when it comes to sharing insights with business users. Interactive, Collaborative StoryBoards(TM) presents insights like scenes in a movie. It gives line of business users direct access to living insights where all key stakeholders can collaborate on observations. Every scene or 'living analysis' contains interactive narratives so observations are explained in context. The intuitive experience speeds consumption of insights and therefore speeds action. All views in a StoryBoard maintain in context as data updates and users can further explore them based on their roles and permissions to ensure the right people get to the right insights. ClearStory's Interactive, Collaborative StoryBoards(TM) features: Interactive Views from one or more 'Data Stories' to deliver a complete and holistic storyline around the situation being analyzed. Interactive Narratives for each insight to explain the observations in context. In-Context Collaboration so decision makers see the right context around the insights to make decisions. Deep exploration of the data-driven storyline so key observers can further conduct analysis via more data or more questioning.
