PITTSBURGH, PA: Rudrasoft, a software company presents its updated version of InfoCaptor software which has been integrated with Cloudera, provider of Apache Hadoop-based software, support and services, and training to business customers.

InfoCaptor is enterprise business analytics and dashboard software. Being a certified partner of Cloudera it adds native Impala functionality within Visualizer, leveraging date/time functions for date hierarchy visualizations, time series plots and all the advanced hierarchical visualization natively on Cloudera Enterprise.

As of the company’s opinion,Impala is the fastest SQL engine on Hadoop and InfoCaptor can render millions of data points into visualizations in just a blink of an eye. This extends a promising big data world and affordable analytics with sub-second response time where CEOs and CIOs across the industries can truly dream of cultivating a data driven culture and make it a reality.

"Our clients are increasingly looking to adopt Hadoop for their data storage and analytics requirements and their common concern is the lack of an economical web-based platform that works with their traditional data warehouses, RDBMS and with Cloudera Enterprise. With the new release, we have bridged the gap of providing Data Discovery on Cloudera along with traditional data sources,” comments JayNesh, Engineer/Data Analyst, Rudrasoft.

InfoCaptor is designed in a way by bringing the power of visualizations and the simplicity of Microsoft Excel making it handy even to the non-technical users. Using simple drag and drop operations, the users can build Circle Pack, Chord, Cluster and Treemap/Sunburst visualizations on top of Cloudera Enterprise.

“InfoCaptor delivers self-service BI and analytics to data analysts and business users in enterprise organizations, enabling more users to mine and search for data that uncovers valuable business insights and maximizes value from an enterprise data hub," says Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera.

InfoCaptor can connect with data from any source virtually which includes SQL database from Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Sqlite, PostgreSQL, IBM DB2 and now Impala and Hive. It also supports both JDBC and ODBC protocols.

Along with these features the software also offers a free style dashboard editor that allows quick dashboard mockups and prototyping. With this ability users can place widgets directly anywhere on the page and use flowchart style icons and connectors for annotation and storytelling.
