1010data, Inc., a market leader in Big Data Discovery and data sharing, today announced the release of 1010data Version 7, which advances its platform in three key areas: data visualization, in-database applications and data integration in the cloud. First, this release provides users with new visualization capabilities for interactive charting of Big Data at scale. Second, this release introduces QuickApps, a new technology framework that enables users to create custom in-database applications which run as part of, and extend, 1010data's native cloud-based platform. Third, Version 7 makes integration of Big Data into the cloud easier and faster than ever with the release of TenUp along with an important upgrade to PowerLoader. TenUp is a new client-side utility that allows users to seamlessly extract and load data directly from ODBC-compliant databases into the 1010data platform. Enhancements to PowerLoader, 1010data's Big Data loading utility for enterprise-class data, give customers new diagnostics and scalability when loading data into the cloud.
“Version 7 is a huge leap forward in 1010data’s evolution and increases the accessibility of Big Data at every step for businesses,” said Sandy Steier, co-founder and CEO of 1010data. “Beginning with data integration and data blending, TenUp and PowerLoader allow users to quickly and easily pull data from enterprise systems and third-party sources and load them into the cloud for analysis. Once in the cloud, our new integrated visualization capabilities enable businesses to explore, analyze, and visualize Big Data in mere seconds, all within a single application. QuickApps then give users the ability to create user-friendly applications and dashboards directly from their analyses allowing for even broader consumption of data insights within a company.”
Visualization in 1010data supercharges the Big Data Discovery experience by making insights more visible and accessible
Version 7 provides new visualization capabilities that allow users to instantly create charts of their data at scale. Visualization is integrated directly into the Trillion-Row SpreadsheetSM, meaning that—unlike other systems—analysts no longer need to deploy separate analytical platforms and visualization tools to analyze data and create charts or graphs. Instead, they can do everything in one place on all the available data, no matter how big. Visualizations are "electric" so that interrelated queries and visualizations automatically update whenever one of them is changed.
QuickApps give analysts the ability to quickly create high-performing, in-database applications for a wider audience of end users
Version 7 introduces the QuickApps framework for powerful, in-database application development. Using a combination of built-in and user-defined widgets (input and output screen elements like text boxes, table displays, and charts), user-facing applications can be created inside the 1010data platform in just minutes. QuickApps can be used to create a wide variety of applications, from form-based analyses to management dashboards. QuickApps can also be combined in a modular fashion to create more complex applications. Business users can then leverage these applications to painlessly get the information they need without having to develop the data analysis themselves.
Looking forward, 1010data will release the QuickApps Visual Editor, which will make it even easier for customers to create their own applications using integrated drag-and-drop tools. The editor will provide a visual development environment that allows even non-technical users to create complex applications using visual tools, without the need to write code. Currently in Beta, the editor will be released later this year.
Data integration capabilities within 1010data take a giant step forward
Loading and preparing data for analysis is typically one of the most time-consuming tasks when analyzing data. With the introduction of TenUp and the upgrade of PowerLoader, companies can now spend more time actually analyzing data and less time preparing it for analysis.
TenUp, a new client-side data loading tool, allows for the direct transfer of data into 1010data from any ODBC-compliant database
Designed for the IT community, TenUp is a customer utility that makes it easy to move data from enterprise data stores into 1010data. TenUp introduces a single-step process that automatically extracts and loads data and metadata into 1010data from a myriad of databases, including Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, and Hadoop/Hive.
PowerLoader has been enhanced to make getting Big Data into 1010data easier and faster
PowerLoader now supports extended loading sessions to accommodate truly Big Data. The utility now supports the popular GPG format, which enables users to maintain the privacy of their data throughout the entire load process. Lastly, PowerLoader includes newly enhanced diagnostic reporting to help pinpoint and resolve issues when data loads do not progress as planned.
“Our service offering covers everything a customer needs with respect to analyzing and reporting on data, from setting up a customer's database, to maintaining and updating it, to helping the customer analyze data, and even developing reports for the customer," added Mr. Steier. "Our customers run the gamut. Some customers prefer that we run a complete managed service for them; others prefer to do more, or even all, of the work themselves, with our contribution being to simply provide the cloud environment and our proprietary Big Data Discovery platform. Version 7 enhancements such as improvements to PowerLoader and TenUp give customers even more flexibility in choosing the approach that works best for them."
In addition to the aforementioned enhancements, Version 7 contains numerous other improvements in usability, scalability, and performance. These improvements cover the basic platform as well as peripheral tools. For example, 1010data’s Excel Add-in has been modified to enhance stability and increase performance with many tasks now performing as much as 20x faster than the previous version.
Version 7 will be generally available on April 3, 2014.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
