Dell Software is rolling out the latest version of its Kitenga Analytics solution, which extends the analysis of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data stored in Hadoop. Kitenga was acquired by Dell along with Quest Software in September 2012.
Dell has two goals with Kitenga, notes Joanna Schloss, product marketing manager for Information Management Software at Dell. Recognizing that there is a dearth of data scientists in the world, one goal is to make it easier for DBAs and IT staff members who are in charge of managing Hadoop clusters by providing wrappers around MapReduce code and creating libraries of MapReduce jobs. A second goal with Kitenga is to help information be shared broadly with easily consumable visualizations, and to support users in separating the signal from noise. The new release continues the emphasis on the bifurcated target audience – Hadoop managers as well as consumers of big data analytics, notes Schloss.
