Aster Data Analytics Center
The Aster Data Analytics Center accelerates development of advanced analytic applications. This is accomplished through a combination of product offerings, services, a world-class team, and an elite ecosystem of partners to develop and deliver data-driven applications leveraging SQL and MapReduce.
Teradata Aster Discovery Portfolio is a powerful suite of reusable MapReduce analytic functions that simplify and accelerate the development of advanced analytic applications. The functions in Analytic Foundation are designed for high performance and scalability by leveraging the power of Aster Data's in-database MapReduce and SQL-MapReduce® framework. These building blocks enable developers to simplify and accelerate deployment of analytic applications that deliver high performance and scalability with Aster Database.
Rather than spending time and effort on implementing, testing, and optimizing their own code for common analytic operations, developers can use these pre-built functions within their applications through the SQL-MapReduce framework. As a result, they can focus on the higher-level logic that is unique to their applications and organization, speeding development and ensuring consistency across their applications.
Identifying where analytic insights can provide the most business value can be challenging. Aster Data's team of advanced analytics experts have worked with hundreds of customers to develop expertise and best practices for success. With the Analytic Data Pipeline Discovery, we measure the "as-is" state and provide a prioritized value roadmap to help you reach an improved end-state.
Customers gain a high-level perspective on the correlation between business objectives and the insight to be gleaned from the data They also understand all the data sources that must be aggregated and managed to deliver deeper business insigts.
Aster Data works closely with select partners to provide tightly integrated, end-to-end analytic applications. Analytics partners are experts in algorithm and visualization development across a variety of industries. These organizations have ported their solutions to SQL-MapReduce for out-of-the-box complete parallelization. Examples of available advanced applications include Monte Carlo simulation, market-baseket analysis, and website golden path analysis. Partners include SAS, Cobi Systems, Fuzzy Logix, Impetus, and Ermas.
Analytics Center Team
Jonathan Goldman, Director of Analytics, leads the Analytics Center. Prior to joining Aster Data, he was a principal scientist at LinkedIn, where he led a team of analytics researchers to build cutting-edge products with the rich data sets LinkedIn collected. He created the popular "People You May Know" product for LinkedIn, and developed and supported computationally-intensive and targeted content throughout the site including "Who Viewed My Profile," the "Similar Jobs" function, and "Similar Members" function, among others. Jonathan is joined by a world-class team of data mining experts and scientists.
