By CIOReview | Tuesday, June 10, 2014

BELLEVUE, WA: Analytics and Big Data services organization Society Consulting has announced the official launch of their first flagship product in Big Data called Amper. This new solution shrinks common data preparation tasks by months, leveraging an intuitive interface, built-in templates, and native scheduling automation.

It controls the ease of use of a cloud-based offering enabling data analysts to create insights to capitalize on the benefits of Big Data technologies without the need to develop complex software or involve traditional IT departments.

"With constantly increasing volumes of information, data analysts are more reliant on Engineering and IT departments to leverage the power of Big Data platforms for data management and processing. Amper works to break down these significant technical barriers, by returning the power of Big Data to the data analyst," states Chad Richeson, CEO of Society Consulting.

"Amper enables quick and efficient data preparation against very large data sets. Customers can now iterate quickly in a very agile fashion to identify latent value buried in corporate data,” notes Steve Newman, Vice President of Business Intelligence at Society Consulting.

Amper is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) architecture that offers users instant access to a fully configured Hadoop data platform via a common web browser. Users can also access pre-configured templates that enable easy cleansing, mapping, merging, and modeling of uploaded data.

Apart from these features, Amper's native scheduling automation brings forth automated ingestion, processing, and exporting of data so that analysts no longer have to manually manage their data preparation. To analyze data, analysts can export prepared data to Microsoft Excel, Tableau, or Adobe Data Workbench.
