HP announces Vertica AppSystem to drive down Time and Cost of Big Data Analytics

The C-Suite loves Big Data but…


Big Data is rapidly transitioning from buzzword to reality.  At the Gartner Summit in Grapevine, TX last week we heard from Nate Silver (who famously predicted the US election with spooky precision) on how analytics is being applied across verticals including some surprising ones such as agriculture and music. The FiveThirtyEight blog author even stuck his neck out with a March Madness prediction based purely on the numbers.


There is no doubt that C-level execs, especially CMOs and COOs, at a majority of the Fortune500 companies, have adopted analytic solutions with open arms. However, CIOs have struggled to balance new demand along with ongoing operations. Hear from Wikibon analyst, Jeff Kelly on the latest offerings from HP that have been designed to address the challenges faced by CIOs and data center personnel alike.


Addressing the #1 Big Data pain point – time and cost of acquisition


A top notch engineering team at HP has been working very hard to address a primary pain point around deploying Big Data systems – time to value.  The HP AppSystem for Vertica ensures system performance and reduces implementation time from months to a matter of hours.


HP AppSystem for Vertica is ideal for organizations interested in accelerating time-to-business value with high-performance, massively scalable analytics at each layer of IT infrastructure — server, storage, network, and management. As a result, you can scale seamlessly, while adding capacity as your analytics needs for Big Data evolve.
