Qrious launches big data platform as a managed service

Cloudera MSP and Spark subsidiary Qrious answers demand for big data analytics

Spark-owned big data and analytics business Qrious, which became a Cloudera managed service provider in May, has launched a big data platform as a service dubbed Qrious Qonnect.

Qrious CEO David Leach said New Zealand businesses are recognising the possible benefits of unleashing the power of big data - they are exploring ways to better access, organise and use data to make faster decisions, improve customer experience and gain a competitive edge. 

"This platform can deliver all of those things. It is built for the local market and will enable organisations to harness the power of data more easily, efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before,” Leach said.

Qrious Qonnect provides one place for organisations to store and manage data, ingesting it in its raw form from virtually any source.

David Leach said Qonnect platform will enable organisations to harness the power of data.

It reduces data silos, enables self-service and can service advanced uses such as cyber security, customer 360, fraud and compliance, real-time analytics and supply chain optimisation using new technologies such as machine learning and IoT.

The Qonnect platform is hosted locally by Spark-owned Revera and is powered by Cloudera’s big data ecosystem which includes Apache Spark and Hadoop.

Storage and support for Qrious Qonnect will be based in New Zealand, giving customers access to experienced data scientists and engineers to help with setup and integration.

“Qrious is the first local Cloudera Managed Service Provider, meaning our people have one of the highest Cloudera certification levels in New Zealand," Akash Jattan, Qrious head of data platforms, said.

"This allows us to create simple consumable packages that include Cloudera software delivered in any cloud – well beyond simply reselling Cloudera licences."
