ZoomData very efficiently provides simple and intuitive ways to visually interact with data. Interactive visualisation is enabled at essentially every scale – from many billions of rows of data to real life streams in under a second. The complexities that often prevent users of traditional BI and analytics applications from utilising the full power of Big Data are avoided completely with ZoomData.
QlikView is a powerful BI data discovery software that enables the creation of tailor-made guided analytics applications. With this tool you can uncover data and information that you often wouldn’t be able to find with query-based tools. The tool can be used to create and deploy analytical applications without needing to have any serious development skills, enabling faster responses to the everchanging business landscape.
The amount of value you will be able to get out of Big Data relies a lot of the amount of processing and compute power you have at your disposal.
Here are some great choices of software to use to get the most out of your new server technology.
Hive offers three different dashboards that each provide users with team productivity. Dashboards provide summaries of both personal and workspace productivity, highlighting inefficient areas and allowing managers to find ways to rectify them. There are a variety of features such as workflow templates, group messaging, multiple task views and more than 100 third party apps.
Apache Drill is a quick, flexible solution that features a high level of usability. Its agility allows for you to gain quicker insights without the usual overhead (such as loading, schema creation, etc.) Analysis of the multi-structured and nested data in non-relational datastores can be done directly without the need to transform or restrict it. You can leverage your existing skills and tools including the likes of Tableau, QlikView, MicroStrategy, Excel and more, boosting the usability of Apache Drill.
Apache Flink is designed to run effectively in all common cluster environments. As a distributed processing engine, it is capable of stateful computations over unbounded and bounded data streams. It is able to perform computations at in-memory speed and at any scale.
Apache Kafka is a publish-subscribe messaging system that is suitable for both online and offline messaging. It protects from data loss through persisting messages on the disk and replicating them within the cluster. Kafka is a very reliable and durable system. It can also very efficiently handle failures as it is fault tolerant. When it comes to real-time streaming data analysis, Apache Kafka can integrate extremely well with Apache Storm and Apache Spark.
Cloudera is a powerful software solution that has been meticulously designed for data management and analytics. It has been branded by many as the world’s quickest, most easily usable and most secure Apache Hadoop platform.

Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computational system made to process data streams. This open source software is capable of processing more than a million jobs in a fraction of a second on a node. A quick and secure processing system, Apache Storm is built to handle high volume and high velocity data. It is fault tolerant and highly scalable.
One of the biggest advantages Apache Spark provides is speed. Its in-memory data engine means that in certain situations it has the ability to perform tasks up to a hundred times faster than MapReduce. This is particularly evident when you compare through multi-stage jobs which require the writing of state back out to the disk between stages. The Spark API is very user friendly, making it one of the easier solutions to get a grip on for inexperienced developers.
Software solutions dealing with big data storage feature compute-and-storage architecture that essentially collects and handles large data sets.
Big data storage also enables real-time analytics.
Hadoop is a scalable file system that is very effective in handling big data. It enables the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers. It is able to scale up from a single server to thousands of machines with each offering local computation and storage.
Instead of relying on the hardware to provide high-availability, this software is designed to find and handle failures at the application layer. Essentially it delivers high-availability on top of a cluster of computers that could be prone to individual failures.
HBase is very useful when you need random, real-time read/write access to your Big Data. This software was created to host very large tables, reaching many millions of columns and billions of rows.
It features linear and modular scalability and maintains strictly consistent reads and writes. Failover support between RegionServers is automatic while sharding of tables can be both automatic and configurable.
HBase features an easy to use Java API for client access, giving you more control and improved usability. In addition, block cache and Bloom filters are supported, making real time query processing easy.
Splunk is an analytics software that takes the usually overwhelming task of analysis and makes it simple. The web-based interface is extremely easy to use and keeps all your data analysis in a single location. While you would usually have to use multiple tools to collect all the data you need, with Splunk all the work will be done by one piece of software.
Splunk has been designed for users without a lot of technical expertise. It also contains built-in failover and disaster recovery capabilities that ensure you will always have access to your data, even in the case of severe system disruption.
Elasticsearch is an open source and readily-scalable search engine for your database. You can use Elasticsearch to power extremely fast searches that support your Big Data discovery applications.
Apache Kudu is open source software that features streamlined architecture and allows for faster and more accurate analytics. Kudu’s success has been built on their vibrant community of users and developers from diverse backgrounds. Kudu utilises columnar storage to enable efficient encoding and compression. Techniques such as differential encoding, run-length encoding, vectorised bit-packing and more are used to increase the speed of data-writing and the space efficiency of storage.
Apache Cassandra is a wide column store NoSQL database management system that is designed to deal with large amounts of data. It provides high availability and has no single point of failure. It allows for the solving of complicated tasks with ease and has a relatively short learning curve, meaning you will be using it to its full capabilities in no time.
