Big Data Use Cases

Vertica & IDOL: Social Media Aggregation & Analytics

HAVEn Data Engines

Simply put, HAVEn is a combination of analytics engines, data connectors, plus HP and community apps on top to further analyze and visualize the data. There are over 700 connectors in total and you can use your standard ETL tools from the SQL frameworks.


HAVEn is an open platform, that's why Hadoop is in there. It stores data from virtually any source. The other HAVEn analytics engines add specialized analytics on top of Hadoop's data lake.
