Actian Revolutionizes Big Data Analytics Economics with All-in-One Platform Pricing and Innovative Right-to-Deploy Model Enabling Unlimited Access

Actian Corporation (“Actian”), the first company to deliver an end-to-end big data analytics platform that runs natively in Hadoop, today announced all-in-one platform pricing that gives organizations the affordability and flexibility to grow and change with their business needs. The platform pricing includes capacity-based and subscription models as well as an innovative Right-to-Deploy option, helping customers successfully and economically scale to get the most business value from their data assets. While other vendors are locked into traditional approaches that penalize customers for growth with big data, Actian’s single platform pricing provides the broadest set of pricing options with the ability to deploy the platform’s capabilities that best address individual big data challenges.

Only Actian offers a single platform to connect, analyze and take action on big data coupled with flexible pricing that complements changing data and capacity requirements. Its unique Right-to-Deploy pricing option specifically gives customers unlimited consumption over a period of one, two or three years and the right to continue using what has been deployed in perpetuity, removing economic barriers and uncertainty for organizations to solve the most challenging business problems. It allows companies of all sizes unconstrained usage of the Actian Analytics Platform within flexible parameters such as region, time period, business division, or application area, instead of charging per node or per terabyte.

“Rapidly proliferating data sources and volumes give organizations unprecedented opportunity to implement analytics-enabled business processes, yet vendors paradoxically punish their customers with steep price increases as data volumes and analytical usage grow,” said Ashish Gupta, chief marketing officer, Actian. “Actian has forever changed and greatly simplified platform pricing. We have aligned our platform and go-to-market strategy to democratize big data analytics – enabling Big Data for the Rest of Us™.
