Objectivity's ThingSpan(TM) Announces Certification on Spark From Databricks, Enabling Graph and Relationship Analytics on Streaming Fast Data

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - March 08, 2016) -  Objectivity, Inc. today announced that its ThingSpan™ solution has been certified by Databricks to work with Apache Spark, enabling enterprises to discover hidden connections in their data in real time.

"Objectivity's ThingSpan is the first graph analytics platform directly integrated with Spark and HDFS that allows organizations to ingest large amounts of data from virtually any source while simultaneously querying that data on the fly. Having the ability to take advantage of the Apache Spark ecosystem, including MLlib and SparkSQL, in a mixed workload environment enables businesses to not only rapidly analyze Big and Fast Data, but also the associations between them. Our collaboration with Databricks empowers Spark users to more quickly process, transform and analyze relations in the data to achieve a holistic view for better decision-making," said Brian Clark, VP of Products at Objectivity.

ThingSpan leverages open-source tools by supporting the Hadoop and Spark ecosystem atop a massively scalable, distributed database purpose-built for relationship analytics and pattern discovery. Objectivity's collaboration with Databricks and Spark certification allows streaming Fast Data to be ingested while maintaining and persisting relationships as first-class logical models.

"At Databricks, our focus is on continually innovating and driving the adoption of Spark as broadly as possible," said John Tripier, senior director of business development at Databricks. "We are excited to see Objectivity's ThingSpan become Spark-certified, enabling them to bring to market a next-generation analytics engine for enterprises to discover hidden connections in their data in real time."
