Datameer gets an overhaul to make big-data analytics easier

Users can now toggle among different phases of the analytics workflow

The rise of the citizen data scientist has placed a new premium on easy-to-use analytics tools, and on Tuesday Datameer announced a fresh version of its namesake platform designed with that imperative in mind.

New in Datameer 6 are a simplified front end as well as an expanded tool for selecting the best processing framework for the job.

Datameer 6's new front end combines the previously linear steps of data integration, preparation, analytics and visualization into a single screen. Shifts in context, tools or teams are no longer required every time a data change is needed, the company says. Instead, users can toggle among different phases of the workflow, with visualization along the way to illustrate the effects any changes have made.

Datameer 6 also expands the software's Smart Execution technology to include Apache Spark, further freeing users from having to determine which compute framework is best for their job. Using Spark, tasks such as data mining and machine learning are optimized behind the scenes so business users can get insights without having to navigate the technical complexities.

“It’s not enough to just get data analytics in the hands of business users,” said Stefan Groschupf, Datameer's CEO. “The user experience has to engage them with their work and the goals of the company, and the back end needs to handle all of the heavy lifting while removing the technical complexity.”

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
