Joseph, one small technical point: Aster Data’s nCluster stores data by rows. The DBMS is not a column store.

Thank you for correcting my misunderstanding. I had thought I heard the words “column-store” at the Aster Big Data Summit, but perhaps, it was my own internal filter, as when I read the following from their FAQ, and somehow saw column-store:

It provides a very strong data management layer - ANSI SQL interface, ACID transactions, Information Lifecycle Management, indexes, cost-based query optimizer, compression, security and other database features. It provides a very strong application processing framework - multiple language support, workload management, security, statistics collection, error logging and other application server features. It is architected to co-locate both data management and application processing as first-class citizens on the same infrastructure.
What is Aster Data nCluster?

I’ll correct this in the main post.

Hi Joseph, gr8 post! Thanks also to have mentioned SpagoBI and its capabilities in terms of location intelligence. Just one thing about the teble: SpagoBI support also PaloPivot (aka JPalo web client) as OLAP client.

SpagoBI supports many more things than I can fit in the table. ;) Is there a better link than the one that I gave to list them all?

As you know, you have to be careful with vendor claims. For instance, SAS described, at the Aster Big Data Summit in Washington DC in May, the ability to run a version of the SAS Data Step on Aster nodes. SAS described this as if it is shipping. In fact, it will not ship this year.

Hi Joseph!
Did you have a look at our Palo Suite? Plays well with all of the above and is OS too - http://www.jedox.com/en/products/Palo-Suite.html

We’ve been aware of the OSS Palo for Excel for some time, but haven’t kept up with Jedox’s other OSS for BI. We’ll add these products to our OSSLinks, shown in the sidebar to this blog.

Thank you for taking the time to update us.

At the beginning, The Open Source Solutions Blog was a companion to the Open Source Solutions for Business Intelligence Research Project, and book. But back in 2005, we couldn't find a publisher. As Apache Hadoop and its family of open source projects proliferated, and in many ways, took over the OSS data management and analytics world, our interests became more focused on streaming data management and analytics for IoT, the architecture for people, processes and technology required to bring value from the IoT through Sensor Analytics Ecosystems, and the maturity model organizations will need to follow to achieve SAEIoT success. OSS is very important in this world too, for DMA, API and community development.
