In this week’s real-time analytics news: BMC adds new capabilities to its Automated Mainframe Intelligence portfolio, Intel intros 12th Gen Core Processors for edge, and more.
Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the items our staff came across each week. Here are some of the news items from this week:
BMC announced new capabilities and integrations across its BMC AMI (Automated Mainframe Intelligence) and BMC Compuware portfolios. Together, the innovations help customers improve service quality and accelerate software delivery by providing greater data visibility and context-based insights across their IT environments.
The new BMC AMI Ops integration with Splunk, coupled with the BMC AMI Security integration, allows an extensive collection of enriched security data, operations, and performance information to be visible to security and operations teams. This shared visibility, together with a greater frame of reference, enables teams to surface and investigate threats that might have otherwise gone undetected before they impact business services.
The BMC Helix Discovery solution now automatically maps and visualizes service dependencies across mainframe and distributed environments using application network connection details sent from the BMC AMI Ops product. This allows users to prioritize problems according to the possible business impact. The added visibility and context across systems help enterprises resolve service issues faster and improve service quality.
Intel launched 12th Gen Intel Core processors (code-named Alder Lake S-series and H-series), the first family of processors enhanced for the edge to feature performance hybrid architecture that combines Performance-cores and Efficient-cores with Intel Thread Director. Enhanced to accelerate Internet of Things (IoT) application innovation, the new processors offer retail, manufacturing, healthcare, and digital safety customers increased core counts and advanced graphics/media/display and AI capabilities, as well as a wide range of price, performance, and power.
Provectus released the redesign of UI for Apache Kafka service as a part of its v0.3 update. The update also includes optimizations of the product’s performance and security, and presents new features, such as LDAP authentication and Docker ARM & Apple M1 support. The clean UI of the tool makes it easy to keep track of such metrics as Brokers, Topics, Partitions, Production, and Consumption, without having to use additional CLI tools.
John Snow Labs released Spark NLP 3.4.0, which extends the support for Apache Spark 3.2.x major releases on Scala 2.12. The company now supports all five major Apache Spark and PySpark releases of 2.3.x, 2.4.x, 3.0.x, 3.1.x, and 3.2.x at once, helping the community to migrate from earlier Apache Spark versions to newer releases without being worried about Spark NLP end of life support. This release also extends support for new Databricks and EMR instances on Spark 3.2.x clusters.
