H2O AND MAPR TECHNOLOGIES PARTNER TO EXTEND IN-MEMORY PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS ON HADOOP
Strategic partnership will answer customer demand for advanced analytics layered on top of enterprise-class Apache™ Hadoop
H2O (http://www.h2o.ai/), the open source in-memory machine learning and predictive analytics company for big data, today announced that its flagship H2O product is now certified on MapR Technologies Distribution for Apache™ Hadoop. Companies that deploy MapR can seamlessly run open source H2O advanced algorithms on data stored in Hadoop clusters without the need for data transfers. By combining the power of H2O’s in-memory prediction engine with a unified platform in MapR, users can get more value from their existing data and easily create models using familiar tools such as R, Python, Scala and Java.
“Together MapR and H2O are working to provide enterprises with easy access to the fastest predictive analytics on the sturdiest Hadoop distribution,” said Bill Bonin, vice president of business development of MapR Technologies. “We’re driving greater value to our customers through a variety of popular use cases from fraud detection and attribution analysis, to analyzing traffic patterns.”
“H2O brings near real-time modeling and low-latency scoring to MapR Enterprise Hadoop Distribution,” said SriSatish Ambati, co-founder and CEO of H2O. “Some of the first to realize increased ROI on their Hadoop investments have been Insurance and Financial Services companies through the use of pricing engines and fraud prediction.”
A vibrant community of data scientists, systems and language enthusiasts has built up quickly around a shared interest in H2O. H2O has sponsored or participated in 45 data science meet-ups over the past 9 months. For more information on upcoming H2O meet-ups, please visit http://0xdata.com/events/ or join the movement at https://github.com/0xdata/h2o.

H2O brings better algorithms to big data. H2O is a fast open source in-memory prediction engine and machine learning platform. With H2O enterprises can use all of their data (instead of sampling) in real-time for better predictions. Users can model data quickly and make better data-driven decisions faster by running advanced algorithms such as Deep Learning, Classification, Regression, Decision Trees, Forests, Gradient Boosting, GLM, PCA and more. Data Scientists can take both simple & sophisticated models to production from the same interactive platform used for modeling within R and JSON.
Our earliest customers have built powerful domain specific predictive engines for Recommendations, Pricing, Outlier Detection and Fraud Prediction for Insurance and Ad Platforms. H2O is nurturing a grassroots movement of math, systems and data scientists to herald the new wave of Discovery with Big Data Science. H2O is on CRN’s 10 Coolest Big Data Products of 2013 and is a Silicon Valley startup backed by Nexus Venture Partners and other leading angel investors in big data. www.h2o.ai
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
