Squid Solutions integrates with EMC GREENPLUM CHORUS, the social data science platform

Squid’s early-access to Chorus API results in rapid development and integration of Chorus-enhanced Big Data applications.

Boulogne-Billancourt, France, March 20, 2012—Squid Solutions, which channels the power of cloud-based analytics into tailor-made business applications to address the data needs of customers across any industry, today announced it is integrating its cloud-based platform with EMC Greenplum Chorus, a Facebook-like social collaboration tool for Data Science teams to iterate on the development of datasets and ensure that useful insights are delivered to the business quickly. Combining the two offerings delivers an end-to-end solution designed to extract insight from multiple sources of raw data using exploratory and advanced analytics, streamlining the analytics process and boosting customers’ capacity to innovate with data.

Squid Solutions’ offering is a multi-tenant platform with an SDK (software development kit) to roll out business applications. Chorus aims to alter the way people generate value from Big Data analytics by pairing social collaboration with the Big Data analytics process—an industry first. Squid chose Chorus because of its power to enable collaboration through the sharing of knowledge, data and resources among data owners, data scientists, business experts and end users around the platform. The company also chose Greenplum Unified Analytics Platform (UAP) as its underlying Big Data analytics infrastructure.

“Collaboration is where we see the value of a cloud platform and that’s why we integrated our software with Chorus via their API,” said Squid Solutions CEO Adrien Schmidt. “We are also happy to have chosen the Greenplum UAP as the underlying infrastructure for a cloud offering as it offers the most advanced features and a very high performance level.”

Earlier this month, Squid Solutions announced it selected EMC Greenplum technology to provide a web-based turnkey solution for Big Data analytics, making it possible to set up Big Data applications in just weeks. The company runs a Greenplum Data Computing Appliance (DCA)—the industry’s first complete Big Data analytics platform—to deploy Big Data analytics applications in the cloud.

With its more than eight years’ experience analyzing large volumes of data, Squid Solutions’ SaaS technology takes full advantage of the advanced features of EMC Greenplum’s massively parallel database by running “in-database” computing directly on the raw data, to accelerate the creation and deployment of innovative business applications. Using Squid Solutions’ platform, developers can focus on their business expertise to deliver more value to their customers.
