With SpagoBI suite, Engineering Group launches its open source proposition for Big Data analytics in the global marketplace

Engineering Group and SpagoBI sponsor the Hadoop Summit Europe 2015 in Brussels

Rome (Italy), 15th April 2015 – Engineering Group participates in the Hadoop Summit Europe – leading conference for the Hadoop community that opens today in Brussels, Belgium – and presents its latest novelties for Big Data analytics, focusing on the open source SpagoBI suite.

SpagoBI’s functional coverage ranges from traditional reporting and charting features to self-service analysis with data mash-up capabilities, which are fully applicable to Big Data scenarios dealing with large volumes of heterogeneous and non-structured data, even in real-time.

In addition to traditional data sources, SpagoBI can access Hadoop and NoSQL databases, enabling the extraction of value-added information from Big Data, Open Data and social networks. Through advanced data mining and sentiment analysis techniques, SpagoBI addresses data scientists’ needs for strategic and predictive analytics. As a result, the exploration of data generated every day by users, organizations and enterprises becomes a source of new business opportunities.

On both days of the event, Engineering Group will deliver live demos and presentations at its booth located in the exhibition area.

“SpagoBI is the only full open source Business Intelligence suite on the market and this event in Brussels gives us the opportunity to present its positioning as a Big Data and Business Analytics solution” – says Grazia Cazzin, SpagoBI Labs Director and Engineering Group’s Big Data proposition manager – “That’s our value proposition that addresses European public administrations and enterprises, which also benefit from our local presence thanks to our branch office in Brussels”.
