No Code MapReduce

No Code MapReduce With AppSymphony Release 2.5 nearly complete – and having not posted a blog entry in over three months! – I plan to spend some time over the next several weeks highlighting AppSymphony’s most talked about features. You’ll soon be able to try AppSymphony for yourself on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace (more details soon!), but in the meanwhile I’d like to emphasize some of the coolness you’ll see once we launch there. I was on a call several weeks ago with a potential (now actual) customer. We were discussing exactly what AppSymphony is, how it can […]

The potential benefits of the Hadoop ecosystem are well known and include improved information timeliness, data processing durability, and ability to scale processing as data volumes increase. Cloudera, Hortonworks, and MapR, as well as the Apache Foundation, have made it extremely easy to install and manage a Hadoop environment.

Hello AppSymphony! For the first blog post on our flashy new website, I’m going to demonstrate how to create a tried and true example – good ol’ Hello World – using AppSymphony’s web-based Composer.  While AppSymphony is mainly used to develop powerful analytic apps, I thought a simple example would be the best starting point for those new to AppSymphony.  Before diving in, let’s take a look at the web-based AppSymphony Composer.
