Pervasive RushAnalyzer Launches ‘No Compromise’ Predictive Analytics for Hadoop and Big Data

Pervasive Software® Inc. (NASDAQ: PVSW), a global leader in cloud-based and on-premises data innovation, announces the availability of Pervasive RushAnalyzer™, a product designed for data scientists, business analysts and big data developers building and deploying predictive analytics solutions on multiple platforms, including Hadoop clusters, high-performance servers and desktops. Pervasive RushAnalyzer’s visual environment lets users rapidly discover data patterns, build operational analytics and deliver predictive analytics.

“The Hadoop framework is exceptionally powerful, but the skills needed to take advantage of Hadoop’s assets are in short supply. Pervasive RushAnalyzer delivers powerful performance without the need for MapReduce coding,” said Mike Hoskins, Pervasive CTO and general manager, Big Data Products and Solutions. “Businesses have been crying out for the combination of very fast, very scalable and very easy analytics solutions. Our ambition with Pervasive RushAnalyzer is to deliver ‘No Compromise Analytics’ for data scientists to model trends and discover undetected anomalies and patterns in extreme data volumes.”

Pervasive RushAnalyzer’s drag-and-drop graphical interface speeds up data preparation, with direct access to all databases and file formats, leading to simpler data manipulation, mining and visualization. In addition, prebuilt operators tackle the most demanding classification, patterning and prediction problems. The product’s dataflow architecture eliminates any memory constraints, as well as the need for separate stores before analytics are run.

The software is compatible with Apache Hadoop, giving users the ability to read and write data from Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and HBase. Pervasive RushAnalyzer allows users to develop and deploy on desktops, servers and clusters. Regardless of hardware platform, the product delivers extreme performance by leveraging all available cores, maximizing performance and enabling rapid throughput on extremely large datasets. Data analysts and scientists using other tools, including SPSS, SAS or R, can leverage Pervasive RushAnalyzer to extend and accelerate their performance.

“Our Hadoop and Information Management benchmark research shows that Hadoop is most often used for advanced analysis including data mining and predictive analytics,” said David Menninger, VP & Research Director, Ventana Research. “However, organizations struggle to hire and train staff with the skills necessary to support these analyses. RushAnalyzer from Pervasive helps to solve some of these challenges by eliminating the need to write MapReduce code when implementing advanced analytics.”


Pervasive RushAnalyzer Analyst Edition is free (for development and test uses), along with optional paid support plans. Pervasive RushAnalyzer is part of a growing range of big data products from Pervasive. For more information about Pervasive’s Big Data products and solutions, visit www.pervasivebigdata.com.
