Accelerate Hadoop


Perform Hadoop ETL and Analytics 10X Faster

Access, prepare, and analyze data natively in Hadoop in minutes instead of weeks with Actian DataFlow. Create workflows to pull together data from all your data sources, quickly prepare the data, analyze it and output it to the visualization tool of your choice. Spend less time preparing your Hadoop data and more time analyzing it to uncover new insights.

Process Hadoop Data Without Coding

Stop programming in MapReduce every time you need to perform ETL or analyze your Hadoop data. Take fast Hadoop analytics development to the next level using the Actian DataFlow extensions for KNIME. Build end-to-end analytics workflows in the KNIME open source data mining platform’s award-winning graphical point, click and configure interface. Save weeks or even months with DataFlow’s generous set of pre-built data preparation and analytics operators already optimized for parallel execution. Run faster iterations and get results quicker from your Hadoop data without writing a single line of code.

Improve Accuracy Using All Your Data

Don’t settle for a 2% data sample. Eliminate loss of granularity from too much aggregation. Transform, load and mine all the data stored in Hadoop in the time you’re taking now to process a tiny sample. Take the processing to where the data lives – right on the cluster. Process more data to find patterns, outliers, and get more accurate answers to your questions. Enrich Hadoop with data stored in other sources to gain contextual depth in your analysis.
