Getting information out of the Hadoop big data platform can be a challenge. AtScale developed the AtScale Intelligence Platform, which allows commonly used business intelligence tools to access data stored in Hadoop clusters. The company came out of stealth mode in April.
AtScale's technology works by providing a semantic layer between Hadoop and business analytics tools, turning Hadoop into an OLAP (online analytical processing) server. That allows users to tap into Hadoop data for multidimensional analysis without the need for IT to develop custom code or move data into separate data stores or legacy BI systems.
