While more corporate data is being collected and stored in Hadoop, there are few straightforward ways to access and analyze that data with the reporting and business analytics tools many information workers use today. And that's proving to be a stumbling block for many big data projects.
AtScale, founded in 2013, aims to bridge that disconnect. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company exited stealth mode in April and debuted its AtScale Intelligence Platform software that allows commonly used business intelligence tools to access data stored in Hadoop clusters. The technology creates a semantic layer between Hadoop and business analytics tools, turning Hadoop into an OLAP server.
