Free License of Big Data Analytics Application

Researchers can now examine complex data sets and communicate their findings for free.

Datameer, a San Mateo, CA-based software development company, is offering a free license of its data analytics application, Datameer Analytics Solution (DAS), for qualifying academic research, according to a statement released last week by the company.

Researchers using Datameer can integrate and perform analysis on complex data sets in a spreadsheet-like interface, and then publish those results through dashboards and infographics. The solution uses Apache Hadoop, a distributed computational platform that works on commodity hardware, to conduct the analysis.

"We're extremely committed to helping researchers work with their data to find the insights they're looking for," said Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer. "Datameer reduces the common barriers to research findings by lowering costs, getting technology out of the way, and giving users the right tools to explore their data freely and visually."
