CSC Launches Next-Generation Big Data Platform as a Service

CSC (NYSE: CSC), a global leader in next-generation IT services and solutions, has added new security, compliance, data infrastructure technologies, and cloud deployment options to its open source Big Data Platform as a Service (BDPaaS) offering, which enables enterprise and public sector clients to get up and running in 30 days or less across a variety of cloud and dedicated architectures.

The CSC BDPaaS has been engineered to support an "as-a-Service" on several cloud infrastructures including Amazon, CSC Cloud Solutions, RedHat OpenStack and VMware VSphere private clouds. This allows flexible deployment models within the customer's datacenter as well as trusted third party datacenters including CSC’s. With the CSC BDPaaS, CSC customers are also able to leverage the ServiceMesh Agility PlatformTM, which provides cloud management, governance, and security across public, private and hybrid clouds.

CSC BDPaaS offers batch analytics, fine-grained and interactive analytics, and real-time streaming analytics. Along with a suite of improved next-generation reference architectures for IBM, SAP, Oracle, and Teradata, it is the only “as a service” offering that seamlessly integrates with Hadoop, Ad-Hoc Query and Streaming analytics to support high volumes, high velocities and any type of data.

“CSC is uniquely positioned to support predictive and prescriptive analytics for actionable insights from internal and external data to better manage customer intelligence, product innovation, risks and operational efficiencies,” said Jim Kaskade, vice president and general manager, Big Data & Analytics, CSC. “Clients can minimize up-front costs and leverage existing technology investments without sacrificing time-to-market mandates. We’re helping clients unlock the power and potential of Big Data with greater speed, efficiency and confidence.”

Commercial and public sectors especially healthcare, insurance, finance and banking, diversified, and manufacturing, can benefit from CSC’s BDPaaS with:

  • Insights from data in less than 30 days, even in the most complex hybrid environments;
  • Ability to exploit previously untapped enterprise and machine generated data;
  • Scale up/down infrastructure and services-as-needed to align spend with expected returns;
  • Quick-start proofs of concept with ability to rapidly operationalize;
  • Ability to rapidly develop, test and deploy analytic models and applications to accelerate time to value;
  • Integration of the Hortonworks Data Platform and Mongo DB as well as enhancements to our support of Storm, Hbase, Elasticsearch and Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop;
  • Enhanced support for HIPPA, PCI and other regulatory standards for applications with compliance requirements; and
  • Enterprise-class security.

“CSC is a valued Hortonworks partner, helping enable and expand the ecosystem around 100-percent open source Apache Hadoop,” said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. “With the launch of CSC BDPaaS, which leverages the capabilities of the Hortonworks Data Platform, clients can better manage their Hadoop distributions to capture and analyze their diverse data streams with greater precision to deliver new insights.”

“This is a very competitive as-a-service offering that truly does take a platform approach to Big Data and Analytics requirements by integrating Hadoop, relational and streaming technologies to support high volumes of any type of data at any speed,” said Dan Vesset, program VP Business Analytics and Big Data, IDC. “CSC’s ability to offer and support a number of open source as well as enterprise technologies on an integrated platform gives clients options to better address a wide variety of current and future Big Data use cases.”

IDC expects the market for Big Data technology and services to grown from $12.6 billion in 2013 to $32.4 billion in 2017 at a compound annual growth rate of 27 percent.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
