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
“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™.”

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
