A White Paper providing context and guidance you can use
Datameer: Bringing Big Data To All
 This paper, produced by the analysts and researchers of CTOlabs.com, provides an overview of one of the pioneers of the Big Data movement, Datameer. Datameer provides end-user-focused capabilities,enabling user self-service and real time interaction for users.
Executive Summary
Datameer provides a complete analytics platform that supports users. Users see familiar interfaces andeasy to manipulate interactive visualizations. They are supported with a back end that integrates allthe enterprise’s data resources. The result: powerful Big Data solutions are provided to users in a waythat lets them interact directly with data instead of being forced to work through development teams.
Apache Hadoop is the leading open-source Big Data platform with an ecosystem of software toinexpensively store, process, and analyze almost any type of information from any source. Hadoop isrenowned for its ability to work on commodity hardware. Hadoop enables fast, distributed analysisrunning in parallel on multiple servers in a cluster. Hadoop is reliable, managing and healing itself;scales linearly, working as well with one terabyte of data across three nodes as it does with petabytesof data across thousands; aordable, costing much less per terabyte to store and process datacompared to traditional alternatives; and agile, allowing users to load raw data into the system andimplement a “schema on read” approach which orders the data based on how it’s requested.
The Challenges of Hadoop
 Enterprises face many common challenges when implementing Hadoop. Until the arrival of end-user-focused solutions like Datameer, Hadoop clusters had to be integrated, programmed, and queried byprogramming specialists or data scientists. This works for rms like Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitterand others that can hire scores of computer scientists and data engineers, but in most rms the analyst1
A White Paper for the Government IT Community
needs the help of additional programmers to build a query. Datameer’s approach has changed this bybringing powerful graphic user interface tools and easy to implement Big Data solutions directly tothe user. Businesses and government agencies can rely on Datameer to tap into all data sources whilepresenting users unfamiliar with Hadoop programming paradigms with familiar tools. The analystswho can benet the most from Big Data now have a tool purpose-built for their needs.
The Datameer Approach
Datameer was designed to let analysts and other Big Dataend-users benet from Hadoop. Datameer is the rstbusiness intelligence and analytics platform built nativelyon Hadoop to allow for end-user analysis and correlationof any size structured, semi-structured and unstructureddata. Datameer runs on all major Hadoop distributions andintegrates easily into existing IT infrastructure with point-and-click deployment. Datameer can be easly deployed overany Hadoop cluster, including those in-house or on publiccloud environments like those at Amazon or Rackspace.Datameer easily integrates with all legacy technologies anddatastreams, including existing business intelligence datawarehouses, transactional databases and other analyticstores. It also works with newer NoSQL technologies.With Datameer, you can integrate, analyze, and visualizedata of any volume, variety, and velocity, enabling numerousBig Data use cases. It works well for large-scale data miningand text analysis because it can import massive amountsof data in parallel. Datameer can nd correlations acrossstructured and unstructured data such as phone records,social media, and text for pattern detection by joining anytype of data at any size. Datameer can also be helpful incyber security monitoring, for example by importing a largenumbers of log les from disparate servers and analyzingthem together for anomalous behavior.2
Datameer and Zvents
“Zvents is the leading online platformfor the discovery and promotion of localentertainment, including concerts, movies,restaurants, theaters, and more. We connect35 million monthly uniques with over 140,000local promoters, via a network of over 300branded media partners, creating the largestlocal entertainment audience on the Web.Data is critical to any web business, andgaining rapid insights in the fast-moving worldof live events is even more critical. Datameerhas enabled us to leverage our considerableinvestments in “Big Data” technology,including Hadoop and Hypertable, to rapidlydiscover actionable business insights thatenable us to better server our users and ouradvertisers. Datameer has given us a scalable,exible, cost-eective way to structure andanalyze terabytes of behavioral click data,driving new product initiatives like “Top 40,our new trending list of hot events at top40.zvents.com.”Ethan Stock,CEO and Founder, Zvents Inc.
