LONDON (Alliance News) - Fusionex International PLC Wednesday said it has launched its big-data analytics software solution called GIANT.

GIANT has been in test phase with a number of customers during 2013 and is now available for full-scale deployment.

The firm hopes the product will set a new benchmark in functionality and access to big data analytics.

Big data is the term for a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using manual database management tools or traditional data-processing applications.

In conjunction with the launch, Fusionex has entered into a strategic partnership with two big-data distribution platform providers, Cloudera Inc. and Hortonworks Inc., both of the US.

Cloudera and Hortonworks provide Hadoop-distribution platforms, while GIANT offers unique and powerful big data analytics capabilities, together creating a complete enterprise Big Data offering for organisations. Hadoop is an open-source software framework for data-intensive distributed applications.

Also announcing a big-data product partnership with California-based Cloudera on Wednesday was fellow AIM stock WANdisco PLC, which said its non-stop Hadoop technology will now run on Cloudera's enterprise platform.

Fusionex shares were trading at 345.00 pence Wednesday morning, up 31.00 pence or 9.9%.
