Qlik® (NASDAQ: QLIK), a leader in data discovery, and JethroData, a fast SQL-on-Hadoop solution, announced a partnership to enable true interactive business intelligence over Hadoop.  A major innovation delivering 100x faster queries, JethroData’s unique indexing technology enables companies using Hadoop to start harvesting their big data at the speed of business.  JethroData works with both QlikView® and Qlik Sense® to directly provide interactive access to information in Hadoop, displaying the results in a Qlik visualization or dashboard.

Unique Architecture Enables Truly Interactive Business Intelligence on Hadoop

JethroData’s breakthrough indexing technology provides a high performance SQL Engine for Hadoop that features full indexing and a columnar structure.  It addresses both the need to store vast amounts of data and the need for lightning fast queries, creating a single system that stores and indexes the data in real time, reducing costs and complexity.

Until today, customers using Hadoop benefited from its great scalability but had to sacrifice query performance,” said Eli Singer, JethroData’s Co-Founder and CEO.  “With this partnership, JethroData and Qlik customers can now enjoy both scalability and fast performance in a single Hadoop platform that enables fast and interactive BI queries over Hadoop solutions.”

With the ability to interactively access data stored in Hadoop for QlikView and Qlik Sense, customers gain high performance big data access with all of the associative analysis options of Qlik.  By gaining high performance access without complicated data extracts or data silos, users maintain all the associative search options of Qlik, exploring information freely rather than being confined to a predefined path of questions.

Big Data users need to focus in on the specific slices of the original diverse data sources which are useful for answering specific business questions without losing sight of the bigger picture.  Qlik’s products are about building these specific apps downstream from the big data system,” said Les Bonney, COO at Qlik.  “JethroData brings significant performance advances to accessing data in Hadoop, which combined with the Qlik associative experience, will enable our customers to continue discovering business value from their data – regardless of the variety or volume.”
