About the author >

Wayne has been a thought leader in the business intelligence field since the early 1990s. He has conducted numerous research studies and is a noted speaker, blogger, and consultant. He is the author of two widely read books: Performance Dashboards: Measuring, Monitoring, and Managing Your Business (2005, 2010) and The Secrets of Analytical Leaders: Insights from Information Insiders (2012).

Wayne is founder and principal consultant at Eckerson Group,a research and consulting company focused on business intelligence, analytics and big data.

Qubole is a new breed of analytic software company that runs on Hadoop in the public cloud. The ideal customer is one that already runs a lot of applications in the cloud and wants to accelerate the time it takes to make big data available to business analysts and data scientists.

Qubole's big competitor is Amazon Web Services and its Elastic MapReduce (EMR) offering, which provides the Hadoop platform as a cloud-based service. Unlike EMR, Qubole was designed from scratch to support queries and analytics. Also, the service is geared t business analysts and data scientists, not Java and other developers, so it is easier to use.

Qubole officials says its queries run faster than EMR  and offers better total cost of ownership since the service abstracts much more of the complexity of provisioning and managing an analytical data service on Hadoop  in the cloud. Qubole competes with other rising cloud-based analytics vendors, such as Altiscale, Mortar Data, and Treasure Data. 

Qubole is based in Mountain View, California. Its Web site is www.qubole.com.
