Datameer and Carahsoft Partner to Deliver Big Data Analytics to Government Agencies

SAN MATEO, Calif. and RESTON, Virginia – June 6, 2012 -- Datameer, Inc., a data analytics solution for finding insights and trends in any data, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted Government IT solutions provider and top-ranked General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Contract holder, today announced a partnership wherein Carahsoft will be the exclusive GSA schedule distributor for U.S. Government organizations that choose Datameer’s leading data analytics platform. 

“We are pleased to add Datameer to our growing portfolio of big data technology providers,” said Michael Shrader, vice president of innovative and intelligence solutions at Carahsoft. “As agencies throughout the government deal with data coming in at a faster rate, from more sources, and in bigger quantities than ever, Datameer’s big data analytics solution provides the rapid ‘time to insight’ so that analysts have visibility across all of the available data.” 

Datameer enables analysts to create insights by integrating, analyzing and visualizing structured and unstructured data in a familiar spreadsheet-like user interface. Datameer combines the linear scalability and dramatic cost-effectiveness of Hadoop with complete, packaged end-user focused analytics functionality. Under the agreement, Carahsoft and Datameer will jointly market and sell the Datameer solution to Federal agencies. 

"As highlighted in the Obama Administration’s Big Data Initiative, we are in an era where we’re creating more data in days than we have in centuries. The ability to analyze that data quickly is mission critical to government agencies for everything from cyber security to government operations,” commented Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer. “By partnering with Carahsoft, we will be able to help government agencies streamline purchase and use of Datameer’s solution, and thereby help improve their ability to extract knowledge from massive amounts of data.”
