Business intelligence and data warehousing firm Kognitio has released a product designed to remove the problems associated with the creation of physical cubes for in-depth data analytics.
Pablo, a name inspired by the cubist paintings of Pablo Picasso, aims to give businesses the ability to carry out more efficient analysis of data by creating virtual cubes that sit within Kognitio's WX2 database.
Kognitio marketing manager Sean Jackson told V3.co.uk that Pablo allows firms to carry out far better analytics and have faster access to data queries.
"With Pablo you can create a bespoke section within the database that doesn't have the traditional problems of normal cube environments, such as being much slower to access, as the data is housed within the database's in-memory capabilities," he said.
"Furthermore, it allows the cubes to be updated in almost real time, thereby removing the need to manage thousands of separate cubes that are created, so there is always a single version of the truth to help users carry out train-of-thought analysis."
Pablo sits on Kognitio's WX2 database and runs through Microsoft Excel as this is the most common analytical platform in use, Jackson explained.
"We use Excel as the front-end viewer for this product as we know that it's something everyone uses and knows and so it removes the need for more applications to be added," he said.
Pablo will be available from 1 June and will be part of WX2 as an additional licence cost. It can be deployed through the cloud or on premise.
