Opera Solutions, whose global customers are in data-rich industries, will leverage the HPCC Systems’ platform to rapidly process and analyze large internal and external data.
“Our mission is to very rapidly extract predictive Signals from Big Data flows and turn them into directed actions that help drive frontline productivity and bottom-line growth,” said Arnab Gupta, CEO, Opera Solutions. “HPCC Systems’ platform supports this mission through cutting-edge, proven technology that we can use to rapidly integrate and find Signals in large data flows.”
