Platfora Big Data Analytics 3.0 is the first product to fully mask the complexity of Hadoop and allow business users to visualize and see patterns and paths of interaction across structured datasets and the massive new datasets of web/clickstream, mobile, events and the Internet of Things. Event series analytics is the next frontier in Big Data Analytics and lets users go beyond 'what' happened and understand 'why'. Key new features include:

  • Platfora Event Series Analytics - Analyze patterns of behavior visually across all channels of interaction around subjects of interest (e.g. customer, products, devices). Event Series Analytics provides interactive funnel-charts, in-memory acceleration of event-stream analysis, and deep event-correlation against raw Hadoop data.
  • Platfora Entity-Centric Data Catalog - Browse the entire Hadoop Data Reservoir that puts the subject of interest at the center and shows every attribute, channel of interaction and segmentation in one browseable view.
  • Platfora Iterative Segmentation - Find groups of any subject of interest (e.g. customers, products, devices) based on their attributes or patterns of behavior. Users can name and use them for comparison or analysis in any other context.
