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.”

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
