What’s New in Dragline (7.1.0): Installing HP Vertica Pulse

HP Vertica 7.1.0 introduces the general availability of HP Vertica Pulse, our add-on sentiment analysis package for HP Vertica. Pulse provides a suite of functions that allow you to analyze and extract the sentiment from text, directly from your HP Vertica database. For example, you can use HP Vertica Pulse to analyze sentiment from Tweets or online product reviews to get a feel for how satisfied your customers are about your products or services.

HP Vertica Pulse automatically discovers attributes included in text and scores them using a built-in system dictionary. You can tune user-dictionaries to detect certain words or phrases, to determine how words are scored, and to filter out attributes that are of no interest to you. Because of this flexibility, you can tune HP Vertica Pulse to work for your specific business needs.

Currently, HP Vertica Pulse allows you to analyze English language text only. You can download HP Vertica Pulse as an add-on package for your Enterprise Edition or as a trial for your Community Edition, from my.vertica.com. Additionally, the Innovations section of the HP Vertica Marketplace offers a beta version of Pulse for Spanish only. Take a look at this video to learn how to install Pulse and stay tuned for our next video, ‘Using Pulse’.

It’s a novel idea for most organizations, but it’s in the DNA of young, agile companies. This new breed of business is killing the competition by holding Read More »

Is Big Data Giving You Grief? Part 5: Acceptance

“We can do this”

Over the last month or so, this series has discussed how organizations often deal with a missed big data opportunity in ways that closely resemble the grieving process, and how that process maps to the commonly understood five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. This is the last entry in the series; it focuses on how an organization can move forward effectively with a big data project.

While big data is big, complicated, fast, and so forth, it is also very vague to most businesses. I was at an event recently where a poll question was asked of a room full of technology professionals – “How important is big data to your business?” Read More »

BDC 2014 – Day 3

Yesterday was the culmination of the HP Vertica BDC 2014. In the morning we had an excellent open question session hosted by the members of Sillicon Angle’s The Cube followed by the usual engaging break out sessions.

The Developers Lounge was especially packed today with people eager to discuss their Big Data thoughts and questions with our team. There really is something great about being able to sit down with lunch and a beer and talk face to face with customers and developers alike from all across the globe. That of course is what this whole conference is about! Bringing people together in real time, with real talk, and real answers.
