Red Hat Puts JBoss Spin on Big Data

Red Hat Puts JBoss Spin on Big Data

What Red Hat is doing with JBoss Data Virtualization 6 is very nice. Red Hat is leveraging its strength with JBoss Data Virtualization 6 to create a mostly open source platform that can very easily tie together disparate data and application sources. This opens a lot of doors with business buyers, not just IT and developers, said analyst Brad Shimmin.

“Red Hat is creating this vendor agnostic, unifying platform -- and that’s really important at a lot of levels. They can go into a company that, for example, has invested in IBM and SAP BI solutions and allow them to easily create a unified data layer to serve both of those BI tools,” Shimmin said. “That’s a pretty powerful.”

It’s powerful, Shimmin said, because of the strong move toward heterogeneous mashed up data sources coupled with strong reliance on mobility and self-service to try to put more data into the hands of more users. That move is creating a lot of problems for enterprises at the data level that many BI solutions don’t pay attention to. Many solutions focus on looking at the data that is served up rather than marshaling the data and making sure it adheres to certain governance and security mandates.

“What Red Hat is doing here is very nice. In separating this out from its middleware platform, they are going to open up a lot of doors with business buyers instead of just IT departments and developers, particularly surrounding any big data projects they have going on. That will, of course, compete with some of the larger platform payers like Oracle, IBM, SAP and others who already have strong integration technology,” Shimmin said.

“But it creates opportunities for some of the pure plays out there like Qlik and Tableau that specialize in data visualization and discovery. They could partner with Red Hat. If they could get together, that would make a pretty powerful combination and would certainly allow Tableau and Qlik to better compete with some of the larger horizontal channels as well as open up new channels for Red Hat sales," he added.
