AtScale Intelligence Platform 4.0
AtScale develops software that provides a way for business users to access data in Hadoop clusters using applications and business analytics tools they already have and are familiar with, including Microsoft Excel, Tableau and QlikView.
AtScale Intelligence Platform 4.0, launched in March, offers what the company calls "hybrid query service," technology that can natively query Hadoop from any BI tool in either MDX or SQL – the two leading syntaxes for querying data in database systems.
The 4.0 edition also addresses security and data governance issues with "true delegation" technology that ensures that queries executed on Hadoop meet data governance and data access auditing policies.
In June AtScale struck a deal with Hortonworks under which the Hadoop software developer is reselling AtScale's software.
