Datameer is unveiling a solution for instant, interactive visual exploration of entire datasets of any size, transforming the way users interact with big data within their data lake. The platform was shown publicly for the first time at the 2017 Strata Data Conference New York.
Built on patent-pending dynamic indexing technology, Visual Explorer extends Datameer’s core big data platform beyond integration, preparation, and governed democratization of big data for analyses, to now add unconstrained interactive visual exploration of extremely large datasets.
For the first time, data engineers and business analysts can use the same familiar spreadsheet-like interface to work with their data and with the click of a button, instantly generate a chart or graph that visually displays the desired dimensions of the entire underlying data set.
The charts and graphs are entirely dynamic, allowing users the freedom to point-and-click drill down, filter and aggregate on any attribute and in any direction, to get instant visual feedback from billions of rows.
This real time visual interactivity at scale makes it easier, more accurate and faster than ever for business analysts to prepare and refine massive analytic data sets according to their own needs. This functionality opens up a new world of ad-hoc analytics that further speeds time to insight and will ultimately foster greater adoption of the data lake.
By leveraging dynamic, on-demand indexing, Visual Explorer enables analysts to explore the data in their data lakes directly and instantaneously, across any attribute and field, without data duplication or the limitations and latency of traditional fixed multi-dimensional schemas.
With the addition of Visual Explorer to the Datameer platform, data engineers can continue to focus on ingestion, preparation, security, governance and democratization of big data pipelines, now with even greater flexibility, speed and scale.
Business analysts can then extend the value of those data pipelines by further preparing, refining and enriching the datasets that matter to them within a familiar, instantly interactive visual paradigm. Once analysts are satisfied with their customizations, Datameer will convert those explorations into repeatable and reusable data pipelines with the click of a button.
