Located in an area marked by poverty and squalid living conditions, which is in sharp contrast to the high-rises in the satellite city, the centre trains children coming from households who earn their living working as agriculture and daily-wage labourers, house helps, masons and small shopkeepers. The school will have an english and a computer classroom, besides two general classrooms, a library and an activity area. The idea behind this initiative is to introduce children between the ages of 6 and 12 years to a world of growth and development through basic and remedial education with basic, english, computers and vocational training.

Inaugurating ANK's centre in Gurugram, Mr. Sumit Sood, GlobalLogic India, Managing Director, said, "Through this initiative with ANK, our sincere attempt is to provide the means to better education to children living in an area where quality education is difficult to come by. Our mission for the past 2 years has been child education and I am happy to see we have touched over 2000 students already with the new school being our 6th partner school across India. The new ANK centre will have over 150 students, who will be divided into age groups of 6-14 years and 14-17 years. Our aim is to provide these children with the best of education and make them an integral part of nation's growth. Nothing will make us prouder than to see these students being educated and become well-respected individuals in the society."

Mr. Abhishek, Founder and Director of ANK Foundation said, "ANK's philosophy centres around quality education being the only vehicle that can improve the living standards of underprivileged children. Education is the most powerful weapon to fight poverty and truly empower the children who will tomorrow be the face of India. With GlobalLogic's proactive association, we aim to achieve a better tomorrow through the medium of education and make the power of knowledge accessible to millions."

This project is ANK and GlobalLogic's 2nd collaboration in Delhi - NCR region. ANK's primary focus is on the age appropriate overall development of a child's attitudes, values and behavioural patterns. The programme aims at inculcating and stimulating every child's endeavour towards taking care of his/her environment.

Cloudera changes the game in cloud-based data warehouses with Cloudera Altus Analytic DB (beta)

Announces first data warehouse cloud service to bring the warehouse to the data to deliver instant self-service BI and SQL analytics

New Delhi - December 4, 2017: Cloudera, Inc., (NYSE: CLDR), the modern platform for machine learning and analytics, optimized for the cloud, announced the upcoming beta release of Cloudera Altus Analytic DB. Cloudera Altus Analytic DB is the first data warehouse cloud service that brings the warehouse to the data through a unique cloud-scale architecture that eliminates complex and costly data movement. Built on the Cloudera Altus Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) foundation, Altus Analytic DB delivers instant self-service BI and SQL analytics to anyone, easily, reliably, and securely. Furthermore, by leveraging the Shared Data Experience (SDX) , the same data and catalog is accessible for analysts, data scientists, data engineers, and others using the tools they prefer - SQL, Python, R - all without any data movement.

For many enterprises, challenges with existing analytic environments have resulted in a number of limitations for both business analysts and IT. Constraints on resources mean critical reporting and SLAs are given priority while limiting self-service access for other queries and workloads. To support additional workloads and access beyond SQL, data silos have proliferated, resulting in inefficiencies managing the multiple data copies, difficulties in applying consistent security policies, and governance issues. While business users struggle to analyze data across these silos and limiting the ability to collaborate with groups including data scientists and data engineers.

Cloudera Altus Analytic DB removes those limitations through the speed and scale of the cloud. Central to Altus Analytic DB is its unique architecture that brings the warehouse to the data, enabling direct and iterative access to all data in cloud object storage. This simple, yet powerful design delivers dramatic benefits for IT, business analysts, as well as non-SQL users.

  • IT benefits from simple PaaS operations to easily and elastically provision limitless isolated resources on-demand, with simple multi-tenant management and consistent security policies and governance.
  • Business analysts get immediate self-service access to all data without risking critical SLAs, and with predictable performance no matter how many other reports or queries are running. Additionally, they can continue to leverage existing tools and skills, including integrations with leading BI and integration tools such as Arcadia Data, Informatica, Qlik, Tableau, Zoomdata, and others.
  • With no need to move data into the database, shared data and associated data schemas and catalog are always available for iterative access beyond just SQL, so data scientists, data engineers, and others can seamlessly collaborate.

"With Cloudera's unique architecture, we have helped our customers modernize their data warehouse both on-premises and in cloud environments," said Charles Zedlewski, senior vice president, Product at Cloudera. "Cloudera Altus Analytic DB continues that trajectory, making it even easier for analysts to get dedicated, self-service access for BI and SQL analytics, all with an enterprise focus. With no need to move data into the Cloudera Altus platform, users can quickly spin up clusters for business reporting, exploration, and even use Altus Data Engineering to deploy data pipelines, all over the same data and Shared Data Experience without impacting performance or SLAs."

Key Capabilities of Cloudera Altus Analytic DB

Cloudera Altus Analytic DB, built with the leading high-performance SQL query engine, Apache Impala (recently graduated to a Top-Level Project),puts the full power and flexibility of a modern, cloud-powered analytic database in the hands of businesses quickly, easily, reliably, and securely:

  • Brings the data warehouse to the data: No need to move data into the database - saving time and simplifying IT management and security.
  • Delivers instant analytics: With no pre-processing or moving data, users can operate on data immediately and iterate - again and again - for faster time-to-insights.
  • Ensures data consistency: Everyone works with the same data, schemas, and structures - business analysts, financial analysts, data scientists, data engineers, anyone.
  • Goes beyond SQL: Flexible self-service access lets users collaborate over shared data, using the languages and tools they prefer to work with - SQL, Python, R, and more.
  • Built with cloud scale: Easy elasticity and performance for fast, adaptable, cost-effective analytics.

The initial beta of Cloudera Altus Analytic DB will be available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Sign up here to join the waitlist and receive more information when the beta is available.
