FICO Purpose-Built Big Data Analytics Environment
FICO Purpose-Built Big Data Analytics Environment : FICO , the predictive analytics and decision management software company, announced the availability of FICO Big Data Analyzer, a purpose-built analytics environment for a new generation of data professionals. Big Data Analyzer empowers a broad range of users to collaboratively explore data and discover new insights from any type and size of data on Hadoop.
Big Data Analyzer in conjunction with FICO Analytic Modeler and the FICO Decision Management Platform, delivers the only Big Data Analytics Software (BDAS) solution designed for the entire analytics lifecycle, spanning data exploration, advanced analytics and operational implementation. Built on technology acquired from Karmasphere last year, Big Data Analyzer equips teams of business users, analysts and data scientists with access to their organization’s new frontier of competitiveness: data and analytics.
“As analytics increasingly inform every business and operational decision, the pool of people capable of using and deploying Big Data analytics needs to expand beyond the data scientists,” said Stuart Wells, chief technology officer at FICO. “Analytics needs to be accessible to all. Just as the desktop computer revolution made computers easy to use, and computer skills attainable for every worker in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the BDAS revolution will put analytics in the hands of every professional in the workplace of the future.”
“In our research last year, we found that 32 percent of enterprises have actually deployed Hadoop, with another 36 percent planning to do so in the next 12 months,” said Dan Vesset, program vice president of Business Analytics and Big Data at IDC. “These are impressive figures, but they’re modest compared to what’s actually needed to take full advantage of Big Data. The primary obstacle is Hadoop programming talent. If technology could solve this problem, it would mean that CIOs could help drive more pervasive adoption of Big Data analytics solutions into the hands of all relevant analysts and decision makers – not just a few data scientists."
FICO Big Data Analyzer is part of the FICO Decision Management Suite, a cost-effective and easy way for customers to evaluate, customize, deploy and scale state-of-the-art analytics and decision management solutions. It is expected to be available on premises or in the cloud later this month.
