Saama Launches Next-Generation Enterprise Data Solution that Enables IT to Maximize Big Data Benefits

An end-to-end solution to help data practitioners leverage legacy relational enterprise data warehouse environments to create an integrated, hybrid environment with Hadoop and other NoSQL databases

Campbell, Calif. — May 13, 2014Saama Technologies, Inc., a leading pure-play data and analytics solutions and services company, today announced the Saama Enterprise Data Warehouse PowerUp (EDW PowerUp), aimed at enterprise IT organizations that struggle with the ongoing cost and upkeep of Business Intelligence and ETL/Data investments and want the benefits of Hadoop and other NoSQL databases for Big Data processing. Saama’s solution drives increased efficiencies and higher ROI by providing a robust and scalable framework for data practitioners to take full advantage of existing pure relational data warehouse environments and transition to a hybrid relational EDW and Hadoop or other NoSQL environment.

The Future of Enterprise Data

Saama EDW PowerUp helps IT organizations struggling with

  • Confronting expensive upgrade cycles using traditional relational databases or database appliances
  • Getting data governance control over disparate data projects
  • Creating value from Hadoop investments to handle new big data initiatives
  • Harvesting enterprise wide data for data mining and predictive analytics projects

The Saama solution directly addresses these challenges by working hand-in-hand with clients to enable a seamless transition from a traditional data environment (typically relational data only) to a hybrid relational and NoSQL environment. This empowers business analysts and application developers to embrace compelling data-driven applications, while reducing the overall total cost of ownership (TCO) and improving overall enterprise data capacity and performance.

“We are excited to offer IT organizations a comprehensive solution that enables them to more fully embrace Big Data,” said Rajeev Dadia, Chief Technology Officer at Saama Technologies. “Boasting a 30-40% reduction in TCO, our Saama EDW PowerUp helps organizations transform their stale tools and processes to deliver deeper actionable insights and faster value from Hadoop investments.”
