Infochimps Releases Application Reference Designs, Continues Path to Accelerate Time to Value for Big Data Enterprises

Fueling a new era of analytic application development with its flagship Cloud for Big Data offering, Infochimps empowers enterprises with agile development and rapid deployment of scalable Big Data applications

Today at the Strata NY + Hadoop World Conference in New York City, Infochimps, a CSC company and Big Data Platform-as-a-Service provider for the enterprise, announced the launch of a disruptive suite of Application Reference Designs as a new key component to its business analytics offerings.

“Since the announcement of our Enterprise Cloud late last year, the team has been heads down automating our agile applications framework,” said Jim Kaskade, Infochimps CEO. “We believe that CxOs can not afford to wait 24 months for their Big Data application to launch before they start making mission-critical course corrections to their business. Our customers need to deliver value years ahead of their competition.”

Designed with the expertise gained from experience with customers in ad tech, manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, and with use cases involving social media, and customer service, these pre-packaged frameworks for the development of Big Data applications enable businesses to quickly execute targeted and agile analytics strategies tailored to the individual needs of an organization.

“With legacy database solutions, the time it takes to define, build, and begin to pull actionable information from big data infrastructures often exceeds 2 years,” said Mr. Kaskade. “We’ve integrated all of our expertise in order to create these comprehensive blueprints that empower organizations to get their projects up and running in as little as thirty days and with as few as 2 developers.”

By reducing the time-to-market to months, businesses are able to process and deliver actionable data with enough time to react while the insights are still relevant. Likewise, organizations now have the flexibility to change directions when required by the market, and have more time to build and iterate on new applications that focus on leveraging new-found insights for the company.

Built on top of industry-tested open source technologies, data analytics infrastructures and applications engineered using Infochimps Cloud for Big Data, enterprises can tap structured and unstructured data-streams in order to capture real-time insights using the data sources, models, pipelines, connectors, analytics, and applications that fit best with the individual needs of the organization.

“We’re running our solutions on open-source, webscale infrastructures where structured and unstructured data is processed in tandem,” said Kaskade. “By computing this data when it matters and in real-time, we are opening the doors for tremendous innovation.”

Infochimps is now leveraging vertical application expertise behind new enterprise big data projects to drive efficient deployment of new solutions, in addition to its full spectrum of cloud and managed services.
