Running your own Hadoop/Spark-powered big data platform is a complex endeavor. Many enterprises report endless pilots, unable to move to production -- along with skills shortages, unpredictable projects and pricey DevOps budgets. A flurry of database innovation and cloud services has only added to the complexity.
Big Data still requires a massive, manual DevOps and integration effort. That's what's holding back productivity, value and impact.
Big data DevOps teams require many skill sets: security, integration, automation, architecture, database, etc. -- at a cost of ~$650,000 - $1.1M+ annually, according to recent market data. The cost of development and operations makes ROI equations challenging, and the complexity delays deployments. Simple equations show that 70-80% of the cost of production big data and analytics environments are driven by data DevOps, causing a measurable drag on projects and results.
Cazena is the first cloud service to directly address the Big Data DevOps problem, radically simplifying data analytics, with the First Fully-Managed Big Data as a Service. Now data can be securely analyzed in the cloud with a few browser clicks -- and without any specialized DevOps skills.
