Big Data analytics applications that grapple with vast repositories of unstructured data prefer Hadoop for its flexible, scalable, inexpensive, fault-tolerant nature with rapid adoption rates and a rich ecosystem surrounded by massive investment.
Broadly adopting Hadoop as their singular data repository is a problem to customers due to a lack of useful interfaces and high-level tooling for Business Intelligence and data mining. These components are critical to data analytics and building a data-driven enterprise. Pivotal HD addresses these challenges as the world’s first true SQL processing for Hadoop.
By offering the full spectrum of the SQL interface, and the entire ecosystem of products that support SQL, customers can eliminate the need for a huge team of developers to build a dashboard or run a report. Pivotal HD does not need to move data between systems or use connectors that require users to store the data twice.
Pivotal HD simplifies the use of Hadoop, thus expanding the platform’s potential and productivity, and allowing customers to enjoy the benefits of the cost-effective and flexible data processing platform.
