Kitenga Announces a Revolutionary Approach to Creating Advanced ‘Big Data’ Insight Engine

May 24, 2011

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Kitenga announces general availability of ZettaVox, industry’s first “Big Data” search & analytics solution with integrated enterprise search, information modeling and visualization capabilities. Kitenga’s application is designed for non-programmer analysts, researchers, and business users, empowering them to create customized, domain-specific information analytics solutions that support massive scale ingestion and processing of information resources, quickly and cost effectively. The harvested data from structured and unstructured sources is searchable, can be used for novel modeling applications, and can be interactively visualized – an entirely new kind of insight engine for today’s Big Data world.

Using Kitenga’s software platform, large scale structured data (numbers and records) can be combined with unstructured data (text, imagery, biometrics and sensor). Product sentiments can be harvested from Twitter feeds, blogs, news reports, CRM systems, etc. and combined with demographic and regional econometric data to better understand market traction and opportunities. Named entities (people, places, companies, etc.) and relationships (M&A, legal actions, product releases) can be extracted from huge news and PR collections and projected onto time lines and maps to track corporate activities. Internal research reports and knowledge resources can be leveraged to overcome corporate amnesia, making it an ideal solution for Financial, Legal, Media & Publishing, and Biotech/Pharma researchers.

“Kitenga’s solution is a radical improvement over traditional BI dashboard-oriented products” said JP Carmetz, Principal at Oncept Group (http://www.oncept.net), providing Risk Management and Quantitative Modeling services to multinational enterprises. “Most analytics solutions only support basic charting from static, transactional, structured data sources while ignoring the wealth of knowledge buried in mounds of unstructured information.”

IDC estimates that the Digital Universe is expected to grow 44-fold over the next decade, from one zettabyte (10^21) in 2010; and that over 70% of the new content being added is user-generated, unstructured data. Organizations must figure out ways to monetize this valuable resource.

“Most traditional analytics solutions are based on databases” said Anil Uberoi, CEO of Kitenga. “These solutions inherently suffer from scalability limitations, are inflexible, offer an impoverished suite of analytical and visualization tools, and are outrageously cumbersome and expensive to deploy. Kitenga offers a compelling alternative to such products.”

“The ZettaVox platform offers unparalleled flexibility.” Said DJ Das, Managing Director of Third Eye Consulting Services (http://thirdeyecloud.com). “The drag-n-drop configurability is extremely helpful for rapid prototyping and A-B testing without long, iterative coding runs, resulting in significantly shorter time-to-deployment.”
