Simba Technologies' Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector Chosen by arcplan to Bring SQL-access to Big Data in Apache Hadoop to arcplan Customers

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- arcplan Enterprise and Simba Technologies announced today a partnership to enable connectivity to Hadoop distributions - enabling SQL access to Big Data in Hadoop. Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector enables standard SQL and Hive Query Language (HiveQL) access directly to their Big Data.

arcplan Enterprise, one of the most successful business intelligence (BI) platforms on the market, has partnered with Simba to enable its customers to perform real-time analysis on their Hadoop data. With Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector arcplan's customers can connect directly to their Big Data source, enabling high-performance analytics without the need to extract the data into a proprietary data source.

"We are pleased to extend arcplan's big data analysis capabilities even further with this new driver from Simba," said Hans Peter Wolff, arcplan's CTO. "Our customers get the benefits of fast and easy analysis and reporting on massive Hadoop/Hive data sets in our simple-to-use BI platform, along with the benefit of integrating it with other corporate data within the enterprise for a full picture of organizational performance."

Unlike other data drivers for Hadoop/Hive, Simba's Big Data ODBC Driver technology performs the added task of mapping advanced SQL functionality to HiveQL to provide users with seamless integration between their favored SQL-based BI application and their Hadoop-based Big Data. Built upon the SimbaEngine ODBC SDK driver development framework - the industry's leading toolkit for high-performance custom ODBC driver development.

"arcplan's platform provides broad and flexible BI capabilities, letting you focus on the performance of the organization and not the data," said George Chow, Simba's CTO. "Simba's Big Data ODBC Driver provides SQL access to Hadoop, enabling easy access and high-performance analytics on your Big Data. Simba's Big Data ODBC driver technology enables arcplan's customers to efficiently and easily analyze, understand and report on their Big Data without extracting and aggregating data into a proprietary data source."

The world of Big Data offers enterprises the opportunity to perform real-time analytics on their data, enabling enhanced decision making, and insight discovery and process optimization. Simba's Big Data ODBC drivers empower this. Simba's Big Data ODBC solution for arcplan comply with the latest ODBC 3.52 data standard and adds important functionality such as Unicode and 32- and 64-bit support for high-performance and real-time analytics on Big Data. Hadoop distributions including those from DataStax, MapR, and HortonWorks already include Simba's Apache Hive ODBC driver so users are guaranteed standard ODBC access regardless of which Hadoop distribution they use and no extra costs.

ODBC was developed in 1992 by Microsoft and Simba Technologies and has been the flagship API for SQL ever since. It is the most common data interface used by BI, data analysis and reporting applications for relational data connectivity. The ODBC 3.52 specification - on which Simba's Big Data ODBC Drivers are fully compliant - is the foundation for standards-based access from BI tools such as arcplan, Microsoft Excel, Tableau, SAP BusinessObjects Crystal Reports, QlikView and countless others.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
