Karmasphere™, the leader in Big Data Insights, today announced a new version of Karmasphere that makes it easier than ever for teams of data and business analysts to work across lines of business to rapidly and securely, collaborate and share, Big Data Analytics learnings and results.

In addition to the industry standard SQL access to Big Data offered by Karmasphere today, the new release includes a visual explorer so data analysts have a choice of how they explore Big Data on Hadoop, suited to their skill set and task. Other features include point-and-click discovery for reusing Big Data algorithms and User Defined Functions (UDF's), speeding time to business insights, and support for more complex data formats including AVRO, JSON and XML, common data formats for unstructured data but not supported by other solutions.

Karmasphere announced the expansion of key partnerships to increase the speed and distribution of Big Data Insights across a company. Karmasphere will be fully integrated with Cloudera Impala™, the industry's first real-time query framework for Hadoop. Additionally, Karmasphere will be fully integrated with Tableau Software making Karmasphere's advanced analysis into large, unstructured and multi-structured datasets readily usable by Tableau visualizations and reports which are widely embraced by the business intelligence community.

“Karmasphere continues to lead the industry by offering power, collaboration and ease-of-use designed for the new workflow of Big Data Analytics, helping break down both data and organizational silos necessary for companies to compete using Big Data,” said Gail Ennis, chief executive of Karmasphere.
