Concurrent, Inc. and Analytics Inside Partner to Deliver Practical Solutions to Help Enterprises Leverage Data


Companies Collaborate to Strip Hype from Big Data to Deliver Solutions with Tangible Value to Enterprise Customers

SAN FRANCISCO and WESTERVILLE, OHIO – June 30, 2015 – Concurrent, Inc., the leader in data application infrastructure, and Analytics Inside LLC, a company that specializes in advanced analytical solutions for intelligence, law enforcement and healthcare, today announced they are teaming up to help businesses speed development of Hadoop-based enterprise data applications. Analytics Inside provides products, services and training across these and other industry verticals.

This alliance between Concurrent, whose Cascading platform and Driven solution help enterprises create, deploy, run and manage data applications at scale, and Analytics Inside, who utilizes the most effective, advanced analytical technologies using machine learning, natural language processing and Hadoop to provide powerful service-oriented solutions, means that users within the big data community will be able to tap into both companies’ extensive, deep knowledge in the industry. Analytics Inside is also providing Concurrent-developed training services for Cascading, as well as a large number of training classes developed for other big data products and technologies.

Analytics Inside has years of experience and expansive knowledge deploying Cascading-based applications in production. Cascading has provided stability and ease in the underlying Hadoop stack that has allowed Analytics Inside products to move from the earliest Hadoop versions, then to YARN – and now to Tez seamlessly. This allows Analytics Inside to run applications on any fabric of choice. By leveraging Cascading and Driven, Analytics Inside has the ability to take big data projects from inception to production quickly. Additionally, it has seen a steady increase in usage of Cascading and has been delivering consulting and training services to Fortune 1000 companies nationally. 

Concurrent provides the proven data application platform for reliably building and deploying data applications on Hadoop. With more than 275,000 downloads a month, Cascading is the enterprise data application platform of choice and has become the de-facto standard for building data-centric applications. Driven is the industry’s leading application performance management product for the data-centric enterprise, built to provide business and operational visibility and control to organizations that need to deliver operational excellence. Together, Cascading and Driven deliver a one-two punch to knock out the complexity and provide a proven reliable solution for enterprises to execute their big data strategies.

In addition to this partnership, the principals at Analytics Inside, Michael Covert and Victoria Loewengart, have written a book published by Packt Publishing, titled “Learning Cascading.” Available now, this book is intended for software developers, system analysts, big data product managers and data scientists who want to deploy big data solutions using Cascading. It offers basic and advanced features of Cascading through a practical, hands-on approach with step-by-step instructions and code samples.
