By combining ClearStory's Spark-based analysis engine, built-in data harmonization capabilities, and intuitive, simple user model, businesses can now see fast-cycle insights across disparate data sources residing in data marts in Azure, Microsoft's database-as-a-service offering, as well as on-premise platforms. The combination provides more data at faster speeds for everyone in business who needs to make quick data-driven decisions. The new collaboration between ClearStory Data and Microsoft provides the fast way to access, harmonize and blend, explore, and uncover business-ready insights through: Out-of-the-box fast data access and data prep - ClearStory provides highly scalable and fast Spark-powered access to data in Azure SQL Database. Upon accessing data from these sources, ClearStory's Data Inference Engine determines attributes in the source data to accelerate data prep and data harmonization, eliminating traditional, lengthy, complex data prep operations. Fast-cycle analysis - Users can select disparate data to be blended and harmonized. ClearStory's solution and built-in Intelligent Data Harmonization(TM) automates blending more sources and complex data to deliver immediate holistic, visual insights. Business consumption of insights via Interactive, Collaborative StoryBoards(TM) - Business users are empowered to be more self-reliant in asking new questions and iterating on answers quickly with Interactive, Collaborative StoryBoards(TM) that capture the latest insights.

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.
