Special Feature

Making the Business Case For Big Data

Big data involves mashing up company data with public data to improve real-time reporting and predictive analysis. In this special feature, ZDNet and TechRepublic explain how companies can get started and make good decisions about big data.

Teradata and open source NoSQL vendor MongoDB announced a partnership Thursday that integrates their systems for use in big data analytics.

The companies have jointly engineered a bi-directional connector based on JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), allowing users to scale-out MongoDB applications and analytics running on Teradata.

The Teradata QueryGrid connector — a common layer of analytics that the company announced in April — allows Teradata customers to integrate volumes of JSON with cross-organizational data in the data warehouse for high performance analytics.

Through the connector, MongoDB customers will have access to JSON that has been enriched by Teradata to support applications for mobile, Internet of Things, eCommerce, and social media, according to the companies.

As for the analytics processing, the companies say the connector allows data to be accessed and analyzed without special tools or IT intervention, as it minimizes data movement and duplication by processing data where it resides.

Vijay Vijayasankar, vice president, global channels and business development, MongoDB, said in a statement:

Together with Teradata, we will offer the best-in-class capabilities of MongoDB to deliver deep analytics with near real-time data. Our combined strengths will bring customers a complete, never-seen-before view of their enterprise.
