HEWLETT Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced the immediate commercial availability of HPE Haven OnDemand, as well as new data analytics and machine learning features for its HPE Idol solution.
HPE Haven OnDemand is a cloud platform that provides more than 60 advanced machine learning APIs (application programming interfaces) and services that enable developers, startups and enterprises to build data-rich mobile and enterprise applications, the company said in a statement.
Delivered as a service on Microsoft Azure, it provides deep learning analytics on a wide range of data, including text, audio, image, social, web and video, the company said.
Haven OnDemand had a beta launch in December 2014, and now has more than 12,750 registered developers who currently generate millions of API calls per week, according to HPE.
“The software industry is on the cusp of a new era of breakthroughs, driven by machine learning that will power data-driven applications across all facets of life,” said Darren Ong, Asia Pacific and Japan vice president of HPE’s Big Data Platform.
“HPE Haven OnDemand democratises big data by bringing the power of machine learning, traditionally reserved for high-end, highly trained data scientists, to the mainstream developer community.
“Now, anyone can leverage our easy to use cloud-based service to harness the rich variety of data available today to build applications that produce new insights, differentiate businesses, delight customers and deliver a competitive advantage,” he declared.
HPE starts as a freemium service, enabling development and testing for free, and extends to a usage and SLA-based commercial pricing model for enterprise class delivery to support production deployments.
HPE also announced a new version of HPE Idol which applies data analytics and machine learning for organisations to automate and supplement a vast array of manual-based tasks such as trend analysis and video surveillance.
HPE Idol 11 combines context-based analytics and visualisation capabilities to empower knowledge workers and help companies take a data-driven approach to every process, operation, and customer interaction.
“Traditional databases were never designed to analyse human information and often lack the key capabilities necessary to effectively and reliably understand unstructured data,” said Ong.
“With the addition of next generation artificial intelligence, neural networks and machine learning based capabilities, we now enable organisations to harness 100% of their data,” he claimed.
