Kyligence Expands Its AI-Augmented Intelligent Data Cloud to Identify, Manage and Accelerate Insights for the Most Valuable Enterprise Data Assets

Kyligence | August 11, 2021

Kyligence, originator of Apache Kylin and developer of the AI-augmented data services and management platform Kyligence Cloud, today announced Kyligence Cloud 4.5, a self-tuning analytics platform that powers interactive data applications, dashboards, ad-hoc analytics, and real-time streaming data.

“We started 2021 with the release of the first ever intelligent data cloud,” said Luke Han, co-founder and CEO, Kyligence. “With Kyligence Cloud 4.5, we have expanded our scope to include faster ad hoc and streaming analytics. This will enable data teams to provide optimal performance across three distinct analytics approaches with a single product. All this is accomplished using the same AI-augmented engine and governed by the same semantic layer.”

Kyligence Cloud 4.5, the only intelligent data cloud for petabyte-scale analytics, extends performance improvements beyond the distributed OLAP capabilities of Apache Kylin. With the addition of
Kyligence Smart Tiered Storage and the integrated Clickhouse database, Kyligence is now the only solution on the market capable of accelerating analytical queries and ad-hoc analysis in a single platform. Additionally, with new Kyligence Real-Time, Kyligence nowsupports a hybrid analytics model that can analyze both historical data and real-time data  sources.

“The Kyligence vision of the Intelligent Data Cloud helps to solve the problems of data failure between the original application systems, chaotic data management processes, and the growing breadth and variety of KPIs," said Alex Yang, Portfolio Lead for Costa Coffee. "The native architecture design of the cloud can take advantage of the characteristics of flexible scaling on the cloud and requesting resources on demand to help us effectively control costs. Complete monitoring makes it very convenient for IT personnel to operate and maintain and know the real usage of business users.”

“Analytics processes can be challenging and complex for organizations,” said Dave Menninger, SVP & Research Director at Ventana Research. “We expect by 2023, more than three-quarters of analytics processes will be enhanced by artificial intelligence and machine learning to streamline operations and increase the value that can be derived from data. Kyligence 4.5 does just that with AI to help organizations optimize the use of its new features such as storage tiers and a unified semantic model.”

Smart Tiered Storage
Kyligence Tiered Storage provides a cloud-native way to deploy, maintain and accelerate different types of queries with a single, multimodal AI-augmented analytics engine. This negates the need to deploy several different analytics engines to customer data pipelines and therefore greatly reduces the cost of analytics operations and maintenance.

The integration of Clickhouse - the high-performance open source OLAP database - significantly improves the performance of both ad-hoc and detailed queries. With cloud object storage/HDFS and Clickhouse serving as two available storage tiers, Kyligence covers queries of all kinds - controlled and optimized by the same AI-augmented engine. With Kyligence Smart Tiered Storage, business users can still rely on the Unified Semantic Layer using their preferred visualization tool without the need to know the underlying computation and storage mechanism.

Kyligence Real-time
Kyligence Real-Time helps provide maximum data freshness for businesses who wish to conduct data monitoring and hybrid analysis of historical data and current data by offering a low latency, real-time query engine. Separate products are no longer required for batch and real time analytics. Instead, customers can run a hybrid architecture that reduces the complexity of analytics pipelines, shortens development cycles, and lowers operation and maintenance costs for IT.

Sync Semantic Layer to Power BI
Creating different data models to use with each BI tool leads to unnecessary complexity and inconsistency across reports and groups. The Kyligence Unified Semantic Layer reduces confusion and human error by providing all users and tools with consistent definitions and business views of their most valuable data assets. Kyligence 4.5 extends our semantic layer to support Power BI. Organizations that use Power BI can now leverage the same consistent business definition and views as the other users.

Kyligence Cloud 4.5 will be generally available at the end of August 2021 on Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS, with support for Google Cloud Platform to follow.

SQream Expands its End-To-End Low-Code Analytics Platform with Flex Connector AI Assistant

PR Newswire | August 17, 2023

SQream, the scalable data analytics company built for massive data stores and AI/ML workloads, announced today that its low-code ELT and analytics platform Panoply, is launching an AI Flex Connector helper which leverages generative AI to streamline the path to business intelligence. This tool will make it even easier for users to collect all of their business data - from CRMs, user applications, and other tools - into one single source, and further minimize the technical requirements to generate quick data insights. While there are multiple ingestion tools already on the market, these tools are often limited in terms of which data sources can connect with them. Released in April 2023, Panoply's Flex Connector has enabled greater platform flexibility by supporting connections to any RestAPI or GraphQL data source. The Flex Connector currently requires users or the Panoply Customer Success team to sift through multiple API documents to find the configuration that meets their needs, but the new Flex Connector AI helper takes these capabilities to the next level by removing this manual process and instead relying on generative AI to complete the required research. This will enable users to skip the majority of the steps previously required and provide a working configuration that analysts will then customize with minimal information (authentication details, domain names, dates etc.). "We're excited about the future of AI in data and how it can make data in general even simpler to use and more accessible for non-technical users," said Ittai Bareket, GM of SQream Americas and Panoply. "With our upcoming AI focused product enhancements, we're looking to automate and outsource the more technical and time consuming aspects of gaining insights from your data." The new feature is prompted by Open AI LLM models, which are deployed on Microsoft Azure and enable applications built on top of the LangChain framework, allowing users to switch between models in the future. The user provides two parameters to prompt the tool to scan the web for the most up-to-date API documentation of the selected service, and within it all the requirements needed to extract the selected resource. About Panoply by SQream Panoply's managed data warehouse plus ELT and dashboards make it easy for users to sync, store, access, and visualize their data without complex code. Panoply is a product line of SQream, a data analytics company that helps organizations break through barriers to ask the biggest, most important questions from their data. SQream's GPU-based technology empowers businesses to overcome dataset limits and query complexity to analyze exponentially more data, and get substantially faster insights at dramatic cost-savings.
