HP has launched the HP Vertica Marketplace, an online destination for developers to create and share extensions, enhancements, and solutions that integrate with the HP Vertica Analytics Platform.
The HP Vertica Analytics Platform is a component of the HP HAVEn Big Data analytics platform, which works for applications designed to accelerate the monetization of big data.
The add-ons here include connectors and third-party extensions, business intelligence tools, Extract Transform and Load (ETL), and data transformation products, connectors, and tools for HP HAVEn Big Data analytics platform.
VP & GM of Vertica at HP Colin Mahony says that developers can use this offering to get information spanning structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data — through connectors and extensions that store, manage, and analyze big data.
"This includes integration with the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and HP HAVEn Big Data analytics platform, including the HP Autonomy IDOL platform," he said.
The promise here is a chance for developers to work on big data projects that can get business insights from big data with flexible plug-ins and extensions to integrate and visualize users' data sets, including business intelligence (BI) and data visualization tools and products.
Featured here is HP Vertica Pulse, which helps leverage an in-database sentiment analysis tool that scores short data posts, including social data, such as Twitter feeds or product reviews, to gauge the most popular topics of interest, analyze how sentiment changes over time, and identify advocates and detractors.
"HP Vertica Marketplace members also will gain access to the innovations from HP Vertica through its incubation program. These new technologies and solutions will be available for developers to evaluate and provide feedback, helping guide future development," said the company.
