How Platfora Works
Platfora allows business analysts to interactively analyze the mass of data that is stored in their MapR environment. Platfora users first select a subset of their data in Hadoop to be brought into a Lens. A Lens is an in-memory accelerated data mart in Platfora that is optimized for fast querying and analysis. Once the data is in a Lens, it can be interactively queried using Platfora’s drag and drop visualization interface, called Vizboards.
Lens data is stored and queried on a separate Platfora cluster, so it does not interfere with any of the processes on Hadoop. Vizboards is built 100% on HTML5 and can render millions of points in a standard web browser – no desktop client required
Combine new datasets in ways never before possible Internet of Things Analytics with Platfora enables you to combine and work with large amounts of data from this new world in ways that have never been possible before. This includes all kinds of data – from product telemetry, connected devices to user experience, traffic and parking control, to telemedicine. Increasing operational efficiency, managing disparate resources, tracking multidimensional user data—Platfora enables organizations to improve processes, uncover new models, manage risks, and reduce costs.
Understand your audience better than ever before Platfora is a self-service, iterative, and fast platform that encourages you to ask new questions about your data. Platfora’s intuitive visual interface makes it easy for marketing professionals to follow hunches, test theories, and basically just keep refining their search until they find exactly what they are looking for—all with no coding required.
Practical, proactive protection Security Analytics with Platfora provide a complete picture of all the relevant data. Now, using the power of Hadoop, it’s possible to spot subtle breach patterns across billions of events—without waiting two or three months for analysis.
