Real-time Analytics News Roundup for Week Ending September 12


In the news this week: Accenture updates its intelligent automation platform, Hazelcast adds a new feature and enhancements to its in-memory data grid, 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 is a short list of some news from this week:

Red Hat, provider of open source solutions, and IBM, announced the general availability of Red Hat Marketplace, a one-stop-shop to find, try, buy, deploy, and manage enterprise applications across an organization’s hybrid IT infrastructure, including on-premises and multicloud environments. Red Hat Marketplace and Red Hat Marketplace Select, operated by IBM, deliver an ecosystem of software from a range of independent software vendors (ISVs) built on Red Hat OpenShift to provide clients with modern, consistent solution discovery, trial, purchase, and deployment. Red Hat OpenShift allows for the portability of mission-critical workloads across secured hybrid cloud environments with certified enterprise software that can help companies avoid vendor lock-in.

MemSQL announced that the MemSQL scalable SQL database is now available through Red Hat Marketplace. MemSQL is a cloud-native distributed, highly-scalable, relational SQL database that can handle both OLTP and OLAP workloads in a single system, which fits with the direction of new applications to combine transactional and analytical (HTAP – Hybrid Transaction/Analytical Processing) requirements. Red Hat Marketplace is an open cloud marketplace for enterprise customers to discover, try, purchase, deploy, and manage certified container-based software across environments – public and private, cloud, and on-premises. Through the marketplace, customers can take advantage of responsive support, streamlined billing and contracting, simplified governance, and single-dashboard visibility across clouds.

Hazelcast, the leading open-source in-memory computing platform, announced a new major feature and a number of enhancements to its in-memory data grid, Hazelcast IMDG. Among the updates are preview support for managing distributed data using SQL, out-of-the-box support for Kerberos, additional tuning options for Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory Modules, and quicker cluster rebalancing. With the latest version of Hazelcast IMDG, use cases such as digital integration hubs gain improved performance, scalability, and resiliency. To complement the existing APIs for languages including Java, .NET, Node.js, Python, C++, and Go, Hazelcast IMDG is introducing SQL support. Adding this capability to Hazelcast IMDG enables digital integration hubs to retrieve data using a common, well-known API. Usage of indexes to speed up the queries, along with the ability to filter results on attributes, extends Hazelcast IMDG beyond the limited query-by-key capability of basic key-value stores. The familiarity equates to simplified development and reduced implementation costs as well.

Accenture announced a new generation of its intelligent automation platform Accenture myWizard, to help organizations use automation to improve business agility, customer experience, and innovation. Accenture myWizard helps organizations create, implement, and measure enterprise-wide automation strategies and reimagine their information technology (IT) systems for efficiency and performance. The new platform has already helped some of Accenture’s 9,000 myWizard engagements at 1,500 companies to improve user experiences by more than 50%, reduce IT operational costs by up to 60%, and get new products and services to market up to eight times more quickly. The expanded platform offers capabilities for modern software quality engineering, technology operations, and enterprise automation journey management — all underpinned by a broad suite of technology assets infused by artificial intelligence (AI). New features also include an automation roadmap with benchmarks to identify automation opportunities and provide insights for faster value realization. Accenture myWizard holds more than 150 patents and patent applications.

Moogsoft, provider of artificial intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps), and Orange Business Services, a network-native digital services company, announced a new partnership in the Americas to streamline incident management and help prevent outages for Orange enterprise customers.  A new virtual network operations center (NOC) solution based on the Moogsoft AIOps Platform allows IT teams within Orange customers’ organizations to operate virtually and collaboratively. AIOps helps customers proactively understand incidents and their root cause and ensure uptime. This virtual option is paramount with the shift to extensive remote working. Orange Business Services will combine the Moogsoft AIOps Platform with both its IT transformation and Digital and Data expertise to deliver its global customers a single-pane-of-glass from which to efficiently identify, understand and address incidents from across multiple sources, including metrics, alerts, traces, and logs.

SciBite, the semantic technology company, announced the launch of SciBiteAI, an Artificial Intelligence software platform for leveraging machine learning models alongside semantic technologies to unlock insights into Life Sciences data. SciBiteAI offers capabilities beyond the plethora of other AI solutions in the market by combining machine learning with SciBite’s established industry-leading ontology-based semantics, enabling customers to unlock insights hidden in the mountain of life science text.

Nutanix announced Karbon Platform Services, a Kubernetes-based multicloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) with automated system-managed security, to accelerate the development and deployment of microservices-based apps across any cloud. This offering provides software developers with a turnkey managed services experience, on-premises, in the public cloud, and at the edge, to build and run cloud-native applications while enabling them to decouple applications from the underlying infrastructure. It also provides IT operations teams with a simplified and consistent application lifecycle management and security framework. This announcement marks a significant milestone for Nutanix as it looks to expand offerings aimed at accelerating enterprises’ cloud-native journeys.

JourneyApps, a company empowering developers with flexible and highly-productive application development, announced the official launch of its OXIDE Integrated Development Environment (IDE). OXIDE fills a gap in the application development market by combining the speed and efficiency of low-code platforms withthe flexibility and power of professional development in a single platform. OXIDE is a next-generation web-based IDE where apps are built using a combination of code and visual tools. Logic is developed using JavaScript or TypeScript, whereas screen layouts and data models are built using either visual tools or code — developers can instantly switch between the two. OXIDE allows developers to build cross-platform apps that automatically run on any supported device type and operating system (iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows, and Linux) without additional configurations. Additionally, any app built-in OXIDE can be run as a web app in a browser – making it ideal for use cases like customer portals.
