HP broadens big data offerings
Expanded portfolio said to ‘accelerate’ adoption, monetisation of information
HP today announced an expanded big data portfolio designed to enable organisations to "gain better insight into their data and deliver real-time outcomes".
According to research conducted in May by Coleman Parkes on behalf of HP, nearly 60% of companies surveyed will spend at least 10% of their "innovation budget" on big data this year. The study also found, however, that more than one in three organisations have failed with a big data initiative.
"HP's enhanced portfolio delivers the necessary services and solutions to facilitate the successful implementation of [big data] initiatives, and to enable enterprises to handle the growing volume, variety, velocity and vulnerability of data that can cause these initiatives to fail," HP said in an emailed statement.
In an effort to address the findings, HP announced HAVEn, a big data analytics platform, said to leverage the company's analytics software, hardware and services to create "the next generation of big data-ready analytics applications and solutions".
"Big data enables organisations to take advantage of the totality of their information-both internal and external-in real time," said Eyad Shihabi, managing director, HP Middle East.
"It produces extremely fast decision making, resulting in unique and innovative ways to serve customers and society. HP has the breadth and depth of both the platform and the product portfolio to assist enterprises in unleashing the power of big data."
HAVEn combines technologies from HP Autonomy, HP Vertica, HP ArcSight and HP Operations Management, as well as key industry initiatives such as Hadoop. The company is also expanding its big data portfolio with new capabilities.
The first integrated big data analytics solution built on HAVEn is HP Operations Analytics, which is designed to deliver insight into all aspects of IT operations, so organisations can ensure quality service levels. The solution is aimed at the efficient consumption, management and analysis of massive streams of IT operational data from a variety of HP products, including HP ArcSight Logger and the HP Business Service Management portfolio, as well as third-party sources.
HP Enterprise Services has introduced HP Actionable Analytics Services to implement analytics and extract insight hidden within big data, as well as streamline key organisational processes, such as customer offers, procurement, supply chain and inventory operations.
To help organisations avoid setbacks and successfully deploy big data solutions, HP Technology Services has expanded its Big Data Consulting Practice to pursue optimal IT infrastructure performance as well as support for increasing big data demands. New offerings include IT Strategy and Architecture, System Infrastructure, and Protection services that are geared towards aligning clients' IT infrastructures to organisational goals, while achieving compliance with industry standards and government regulations.
