CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- HP Vertica, a leading real-time analytics platform, and Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that the companies are partnering to deliver service offerings to address the growing need for cost-effective, real-time analytics of Big Data.
Capgemini is launching a number of Big Data Analytic offerings for its customers. One of the first to be released in North America is geared toward improving the performance of analytics for customers in a variety of industries. As part of the service, Capgemini will assess the customer’s existing analytics infrastructure and recommend where the customer would benefit from faster queries, reduced costs and real-time analytics. Sample results show analytics processes going from hours to minutes and minutes to seconds.
“Many of our clients are struggling to analyze the massive amounts of data they generate through operations and other sources, like social media and customer service calls,” said Scott Schlesinger, vice president and head of Business Information Management for Capgemini North America. “By partnering with HP Vertica, our customers can combine all of their available data sources and analyze that data over larger time periods, all with very-fast response times, allowing them to get a clear picture of what’s happening in their business right now.”
Moving forward, Capgemini will also be launching service offerings based on the HP Vertica Analytics Platform that will allow customers to make the most of their Big Data. In addition to the service offering geared at improving analytics performance, other service offerings will include:
- Marketing and Social Media: In order to develop a holistic view of their customers, organizations need to combine the web interactions and social sentiment with historic transactions, as well as text data stored in contact center logs. HP Vertica offers in-database analytics capabilities, as well as a library of analytic functions, that are geared toward helping companies make the most of their web and social media data.
- Predictive Maintenance: In industries like communications, transportation, manufacturing and energy, the operations teams need to continually analyze system data for maintenance and repair. Traditional data warehouses require massive amounts of storage, and the analytics performance, even on summarized or aggregated data, was poor. With HP Vertica’s aggressive compression, Capgemini’s customers can reduce their hardware costs while increasing the amount of historic data they can store and analyze. Typical customers were able to increase the amount of historic data that they store and analyze from weeks to months or even years on commodity hardware that cost a fraction of the price, all offering better performance for their queries.
“The HP Vertica platform will help us provide our clients with a very fast and scalable database using commodity hardware,” said Manuel Sevilla, chief information officer for Capgemini’s Global Business Information Management practice. “Its ability to handle huge volumes of data and its easy integration with Hadoop, make HP Vertica a natural leader in the Big Data area.”
“Organizations struggle with turning massive amounts of structured, semistructured and unstructured data into business insights, cost-effectively and in near real time,” said Colin Mahony, senior vice president and general manager, Vertica, HP. “We’re working with Capgemini to give our joint customers the ability to leverage Big Data insights into innovative products, services and offers that drive competitive advantage.”
With around 120,000 people in 40 countries, Capgemini is one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services. The Group reported 2011 global revenues of EUR 9.7 billion (approximately $13.5 billion USD).
