AtScale Intelligence Platform 4.0
AtScale's software provides a way to use popular business intelligence tools, including Tableau and Qlik, to access data stored in Hadoop clusters. The software creates a semantic layer between Hadoop and third-party tools, essentially turning Hadoop into an online analytical processing server that can be tapped for multidimensional analysis.
The 4.0 release offers some 100 new features and system enhancements, many relating to enterprise security and performance.
Topping the list is the new AtScale Hybrid Query Service that natively supports both SQL and MDX query languages used by business intelligence tools. Since many businesses and organizations use multiple BI tools throughout their organization, AtScale's support for both SQL and MDX means those businesses don't have to load new client software or custom drivers to users' computers.
