Teradata’s Collaborative Community for SQL-MapReduce

Data warehousing company Teradata has opened up its new Aster Data SQL-MapReduce Developer Portal, a resource that the company is claiming to be the first collaborative online developer community for SQL-MapReduce analytics.

SQL-MapReduce analytics itself is an emerging framework for processing non-relational data and ultra-fast analytics. The new developer portal aims to support developers working with the framework, as they combine standard SQL with the MapReduce distributed computing technology for processing big data.

As well as sharing what Teradata has called “SQL-MapReduce expert insights”, there will also be analytic functions and sample code to download.

In an attempt to support this new launch, Teradata has pointed to a recent report from IDC Research, “Taking Care of Your Quants: Focusing Data Warehousing Resources on Quantitative Analysts Matters”, which suggested that by enabling data scientists with the tools to harness emerging types and sources of data, companies create significant competitive advantage.

“Aster Data continues to deliver on its unique vision for powerful analytics with a rich set of tools to make development of those analytics quick and easy,” said Tasso Argyros, vice president of Aster Data Marketing and Product Management, Teradata Corporation. “This new developer portal builds on Aster Data’s continuing SQL-MapReduce innovation, leveraging the flexibility and power of SQL-MapReduce for analytics that were previously impossible or impractical.”
