Ron Powell

Thanks for visiting my blog. As co-founder of the BeyeNETWORK, acquired by TechTarget in 2010, I am privileged to participate in many industry-related activities as a BeyeNETWORK expert covering business intelligence and analytics. These events provide me with a unique insider perspective into the business intelligence ecosystem, its products and the vendors that provide those products. I'll be sharing that invaluable information with you through this blog, which will also be a reflection my business philosophy. And, just to make this interesting, I'll be sure to include my personal point of view on a wide range of topics and share some of the stories of people I meet in my travels.

Pervasive Software strives to continually make innovations in data integration that push the envelope of what is possible. Pervasive does this by spending more than 25% of its top-line revenue on R&D, which is why they just reported their 39th straight quarter of profitability.

Yesterday at IntegratioNEXT, Pervasive's user conference, they announced their latest release: Pervasive Data Integrator v10, Cloud Edition running on the new Pervasive DataCloud2. Their goal is to provide universal connectivity for cloud-computing to any endpoint via their wide-range of connectors. They have created a new user interface that is browser-based for all platforms with a common look and feel, is easy-to-use and stresses reusability. As part of the offering, Pervasive also allows for unlimited connectivity with no incremental per-connector fees.

The other major area of focus for Pervasive is DataRush. DataRush is for "Big Data" data integration efforts that require the movement of terabytes of data. DataRush provides the ability to develop massively parallel and scalable applications by fully leveraging the parallel processing capabilities of multi-core processors and SMP systems. Benchmarks conducted by Pervasive deliver record-setting throughput for integration applications. They are currently able to load over 2 terabytes of data per hour on a 32-core Intel Xeon processor 7500 series-based server. DataRush is a parallel dataflow platform that eliminates performance bottlenecks in big data preparation and analytics.
