Metascale Introduces "Ready-to-Go" Hadoop-Based Analytics Delivered As A Service, Without Major Investment

SAN JOSE, June 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MetaScale, the technology solutions provider subsidiary of Sears Holdings (Nasdaq:SHLD), today announced the immediate availability of "Ready-to-Go Reports," a program that delivers the analytic benefits of Big Data and Hadoop to companies at a fraction of the cost, without the need for a dedicated Hadoop environment or costly data scientists.

MetaScale made the announcement at the beginning of the Hadoop Summit, being held here this week. MetaScale is a Gold-level sponsor of the Summit.

"Ready-to-Go Reports," a Reports as a Service offering, leverages decades of knowledge from MetaScale's team of experts and Hadoop Center of Excellence. The service is capable of rapidly performing in-depth analysis of large amounts of social data to provide marketers and others with insights that can help them maximize their efforts in a rapidly changing environment.

"Our Ready-to-Go Reports are a cost-effective solution for companies that may still be seeking to determine the real value of Hadoop and Big Data analytics at their firm," said Ankur Gupta, MetaScale's general manager. "Our team members have the experience and knowledge needed in quickly assembling a customized solution that can address our clients' business intelligence needs." Gupta added that he believes some of the companies that utilize Reports as a Service will quickly realize Hadoop's value, and will move to implement broader-based analytic initiatives as a result.
