Cloudera Acquires Xplain.io for Hadoop Analytics

Cloudera, which specializes in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop, has acquired Xplain.io, a start-up specializing in self-service analytics. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Xplain.io's product, "Big Data Integration Service" (BDIS), automates the design, integration, and optimization of data models that use SQL, NoSQL, and NewSQL technologies, enabling data architects to transform data models that dramatically accelerate Business Intelligence and applications.

Cloudera said the Xplain.io toolset will help its customers accelerate their enterprise data hub (EDH) deployments and make it easier for them to add more data and more complex workloads (automation, optimization, self-service) to their Cloudera environments.

"The business intelligence industry has demonstrated that analytics is moving to a self-service model," said Charles Zedlewski, vice president, Products, Cloudera. "The ability for end-users to find and analyze their own data makes teams more productive, companies more agile and frees BI experts for more value-added tasks. With the addition of Xplain.io technology and expertise, we have the opportunity to extend the self-service analytics revolution into the Hadoop platform itself."
