Saama Technologies, Inc., a pure-play analytics solutions company, has released its Fluid Analytics Engine (FAE), a highly flexible analytics technology that results in fast, measurable business outcomes exactly suited to meet customer needs. This allows companies to use advanced analytics for competitive advantages in days or weeks, not months or quarters, in even the most challenging enterprise environments.
The engine fuses Saama’s Ready Analytics solution components, partner technologies, third-party data and last-mile business visualization and exploration with existing IT assets and new data sources such as the Internet of things (IoT) to address the rapid changes taking place in global markets, allowing customers to fully capitalize on Big Data opportunities. Examples of Saama’s broad suite of Ready Analytics solutions powered by the FAE include Real World Evidence Analytics (Life Science), Customer Analytics (all industries), Insurance Fraud Analytics, and Predictive Churn Analytics.
Pre-integration is a core capability of the FAE, as are reusability, repeatability, and flexibility. The FAE combines existing assets and new components across the layers of the data stack and powers the new solution as a runtime, highly scalable engine. Specific analytical solution specifications are defined as a configuration instead of hard coding. In addition to offering several connector choices, the FAE can complement the customers’ existing infrastructure with available Saama extensions for any custom needs. FAE technology addresses the build and power-up between business needs definition and business outcomes for the shortest time-to-value as well as the desire for the least-change management and cost.
According to Sagar Anisingaraju, Saama chief strategy officer and head of engineering, “Any static software or packaged platform that is coded and released for a certain time or technology stack is quickly out of date. On the other hand, a pure services approach does not scale and is rarely cost-effective, even if it will address the immediate issue the customer is looking for." He says Saama’s FAE offers a flexible and fast way to achieve data-driven business outcomes without present and future constraints.
The Fluid Analytics Engine includes specific capabilities for data management, integration technologies, a security model, a broad set of more than 3000 algorithms to support data science, and a varied set of templates and capabilities for visualization. It is fine-tuned to make the most of unlimited cloud resources and Hadoop-built data lakes. In addition, Saama leverages strategic partnerships e.g. with Google, Amazon, Hortonworks, Informatica, and Tableau to incorporate best-of-breed master data management, visualization, or other technologies as required by the customer.
The FAE is available immediately and is sold in support of Saama’s existing suite of Ready Analytics solutions, or as a reusable delivery engine with which customers can quickly develop any solution they want. Visit www.saama.com for more information.
