SPARKS, Md., July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Revelytix, Inc., announced today a partnership with Teradata (NYSE: TDC) to include Revelytix's Loom software with the Teradata Portfolio for Hadoop. Revelytix created Loom to significantly reduce the complexity of managing data in Hadoop and to sharply increase the productivity of data scientists working in Hadoop. The Teradata Unified Data Architecture™ integrates multiple technologies into a cohesive and transparent architecture by leveraging the best-of-breed and complementary value of the Teradata integrated data warehouse, Teradata Aster discovery platform, and Apache™ Hadoop®. Revelytix's Loom adds critical data management features to the premiere Teradata offerings for big data analytics - the Teradata Aster Big Analytics Appliance and the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop. Revelytix Loom provides a smarter Hadoop for the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop, including dynamic dataset management, automatically calculated data lineage for all transformations and Activescan entity resolution, which automatically detects, parses and profiles any new files in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). This allows better data governance and faster time to value from new, incoming big data sets. "Loom brings some key features to make Hadoop enterprise-ready," said Michael Lang, chief executive officer, Revelytix. "This partnership shows that the Apache Hadoop distributions are still somewhat short of the complete set of features expected by large enterprises considering using Hadoop for core data processing tasks. The Teradata Portfolio for Hadoop is a flexible offering of products and services for organizations to integrate Hadoop into their enterprise architecture, while taking advantage of Teradata service and support. Teradata's wide set of products and services, from fully-integrated appliances to consulting and support services on existing customer hardware, suit every budget and maturity of Hadoop skills. Revelytix Loom enhances the metadata capabilities of Hadoop within both of Teradata's premier appliance offerings to help organizations leverage data in Hadoop and track any data changes during the refining process.
