posted on Wed, February 06 2013 in Analytics, Big Data

EMC Greenplum launches a new version of its ‘Big Data analytics in a box’, the Data Computing Appliance (DCA) Unified Analytics Platform (UAP). This enhanced, all-in-one, predictive analytics enabling platform combines an MPP database – for managing, storing and analyzing the massive amount of internal data at hand - with Hadoop distribution, for the analysis and processing of external, unstructured data. This platform is in response to a growing need. Witness Gartner’s prediction that, by 2015, 30% of most analytic solutions should be able to handle both structured and unstructured data simultaneously.
