Elasticsearch Integration, Enhanced Hadoop Ecosystem Support, SQL Server Change Data Capture Adapter, and New Modular Dashboard Among Enhancements
WebAction, Inc., provider of the most comprehensive realtime stream analytics platform, announces key advances in the areas of access, usability and productivity in conjunction with the release of WebAction version 3.1. These enhancements include integration with Elasticsearch®, broader support for the Hadoop ecosystem, new SQL Server change data capture (CDC) adapter, and a new modular dashboard.
WebAction Smart Search™ is now integrated with Elasticsearch as the backend for indexing and storage, making it easier and faster to search and query big data records. Both aggregated data fields and raw data fields can now be indexed, resulting in instant, targeted searches.
WebAction goes beyond the batch data processing of Hadoop, and into the realm of realtime stream analytics. WebAction enables the continuous processing of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data – both realtime and historical – from a wide variety of data sources.
“Our customers look to WebAction to address stream analytics use cases that combine high-velocity big data with realtime context,” said Alok Pareek, EVP of Products at WebAction. “Enabling them to do that faster, with support for more data sources and enhanced visualizations, means they will be able to derive value from their big data more quickly and effectively.”
Version 3.1 expands current predictive analytics and data acquisition capabilities. Realtime predictions now use key machine learning algorithms, and allow users to leverage best-in-class open source technologies. The upgrade also extends change data capture (CDC) coverage for key databases with the addition of Microsoft SQL Server support.
One of the most costly aspects of developing a stream analytics solution is the coding of custom user interfaces that must evolve as application requirements change. WebAction’s new modular dashboard removes many of the complexities of creating a UI, enabling users to quickly create interactive dashboards and applications to visualize streaming data. A drag-and-drop visual editor speeds development without compromising access to the multi-level drill downs and the details that power users require. This new modular dashboard also provides both metadata support for design and visualization components, as well as numerous added visualizations including new charts, heat maps and icons.
Additional enhancements included in the WebAction 3.1 release are:
- Dynamic cluster reconfiguration – allows servers to be added to an existing cluster, either explicitly or via auto-configuration, without stopping the application.
- Source preview – a UI-driven glimpse into raw data.
- Enhanced query support, including the ability to perform ad hoc queries.
“WebAction version 3.1 is a customer- and partner-driven release,” Mr. Pareek added. “We had terrific feedback from our users on addressing realtime requirements for push-based data visualization, faster search, integration with additional open source frameworks, and simplifying application deployment.”
