Karmasphere Announces Full Fidelity Big Data Analytics; Turning Big Data Into Business Value Faster

Personalized Analytics Dashboard, Visual Data Explorer and Analytics Hub added to Karmasphere Workspace for Big Data Analytics

Cupertino, CA – June 26, 2013 – Karmasphere™, the leader in Big Data Analytics, today announced extensive new capabilities for the Karmasphere Workspace for Big Data Analytics, all designed to empower analysts to transform vast amounts of data into business insights. With the advances, Karmasphere recognizes the importance of providing full fidelity analytics for Big Data Analytics and the ability to explore all data directly without pre-processing, replicating or copying data into proprietary formats. Full fidelity preserves the richness and value of Big Data, delivers maximum flexibility, adheres to Hadoop standards and does not require expensive additional hardware

Added to Karmasphere are an all-new Personalized Analytics Dashboard designed to organize Big Data analytics projects for individuals and teams, a Visual Data Explorer to provide the choice of visual data exploration or traditional SQL-tool based exploration, and an Analytics Hub to securely store, discover and manage analytic assets for sharing and reuse.

“Tools in-place now are more than twenty years old, designed for smaller data sets and processes, and they often require extensive re-copying of all the data into their proprietary systems,” said Sudhir Kulkarni, CTO and vice president of engineering for Karmasphere. “Karmasphere is designed for the era of Big Data; it enables all the analysts across a company to work together and benefit from the ease-of-use and power of full fidelity Big Data Analytics, without labor intensive data replication or extensive retraining.”
