Chicago, IL, June 02, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- With the world of Big Data created by the explosive use of the internet, smart phones, social media and other devices, the need for cloud and mass storage capabilities is taking the IT industry to new levels, though simultaneously causing much confusion & failed Big Data initiatives. How can companies succeed with their projects when others have failed?
EpicDataProfiler/PDM announces its upcoming suite of applications for legacy through contemporary databases: a Meta Data Roadmap, Data Profiling/Analytics, and data business classification (for CSV and Hadoop Distributed File System storage Files). Teradata (a mature, feature rich Big Data solution), Oracle, Microsoft Sql Server, IBM/DB2 and other RDBMS’s store column names, attribute types, key values and allow access by keyed values. EpicDataProfiler finds Hadoop file systems do not offer these features which creates enormous obstacles for developers when asked to extract valuable information from these massive databases. Database developers and scientists are attempting to write programs that deliver business intelligence, customer profiles, analytics and predictive reporting to keep their customers ahead of others. This task will now be possible using EpicDataProfiler/PDM for the truly Big Data databases as well as legacy systems.
EpicDataProfiler found many businesses thought dumping web data, mainframe/server data, third party data, and more into Hadoop would allow them to magically start mining valuable information. "Hadoop’s difficulties with Meta data, key values and data types makes the data mining process almost oppressive," said a representative from EpicDataProfiler. "For this reason, it is important for companies to pair employees/consultants with sound methodologies and tools like EpicDataProfiler/PDM to overcome Hadoop’s weaknesses."
EpicDataProfiler/PDM has partnered with BusinessIntelli, a long-standing consulting firm in the Data Warehousing, ETL, and Data Quality/Profiling industry. BusinessIntelli uses IBM and other industry standard tool-sets as well as EpicDataProfiler/PDM, Pratap Bhimireddy, CEO of BusinessIntelli, says, “We believe that every good project of data integration should not begin until the source data is properly profiled. It saves time and therefore money for everyone involved. This product will allow us to quickly develop excellent results and get our project the kick-start customers are demanding. More exciting is we can rescue anyone’s existing project in Big Data that’s gone off-track; we can bring immediate value, leveraging our strategies and services. It takes a tool like EpicDataProfiler/PDM to navigate the data complexities of any project, much less those involving a Big Data Project.”
EpicDataProfiler's research and experience shows the majority of Big Data Initiatives are unsuccessful and fail to provide the business/predictive intelligence needed to keep their companies competitive. The issue today surrounding Big Data is that Metadata is not stored with the files, column types and data attributes are absent and the source of the data is unknown. EpicDataProfiler/PDM can interrogate Big Data and develop these missing pieces so that truly valuable reporting and data mining can commence.
Steven Meister CTO of PDM-EpicDataProfiler hopes executives will listen to this message. Steven says, “Please, before starting any large Big Data project, especially a Hadoop project, hire experienced management as well as technical consultants or staff immediately.” Steven emphasizes that, “Too many companies think because it is free, and the latest and most discussed Big Data management solution, that they should just jump right in and it will solve all their marketing and business intelligence needs.” Steven stresses, “Be careful, yes Hadoop and Big Data can deliver extreme amounts of business intelligence, inexpensive storage and business analytics, but only when done properly. The key is to understand the other 'Tool Sets’ needed to complement the strengths of Hadoop. Do your homework, hire on proper and qualified staff, budget properly, Free can be far from Free. When you see the price tag of Hadoop consultants, Hadoop Data Scientists (if you can find any) and the tool-sets needed (as they are key) to fill the gap of a newer less mature File System and repository of Big Data.”
By July 2015, most of these Big Data issues, failures and disappointments and missed business opportunities will diminish in scope for EpicDataProfiler/PDM will deliver and lower the impacts of many of the roadblocks, confusion, potential misreporting, time to deliver reports and valued metrics to the decision makers and those in need.
