HP HAVEn Augments Big Data Offering

HP bets on HP HAVEn to accelerate adoption, and monetize information.

HAVEn= Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica, Enterprise Security, n(is for a large number of applications)

HP Vertica and HP Autonomy continue with forward momentum as Big Data and Business Intelligence is now at the forefront of the IT world. Big Data encompasses many different topics. From user, to machine data, structured and unstructured data. The objective of HAVEn businesses capture, store, manage and analyse all types of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data. Working with both Vertica and Autonomy, Vertica will manage the structured data and HP Autonomy will manage the unstructured data sets.


Based on research from “Big Data and Cloud,” Coleman Parkes Research, Ltd., May 2013. “nearly 60 percent of companies surveyed will spend at least 10 percent of their innovation budget on big data this year.”  

As the Software Defined Data Center continues to see more software solutions penetrate the data center, HP is turning to larger and more comprehensive Big Data Solutions. Yesterday at HP Discover HP announced HP HAVEn . HP HAVEn combines proven technologies from HP Autonomy, HP Vertica, HP ArcSight and HP Operations Management, as well as key industry initiatives such as Hadoop.

The question I ask however is how does IT fit into this? Yes IT supports the infrstrucure these software solutions run on, but with such a divide between the CIO and the CMO today, I personally believe Big Data Solutions may need to target the business directly. In discussions with some of HP’s Big Data executives, we were advised that the Chief Compliance Officer and Chief Legal Officer are also emerging as target buyers for Big Data Solutions, specifically HP Autonomy.

Full Disclosure:  HP sponsored a trip for me to come to Discover this year to cover the event but did not pay for any blog articles or have any say in the editorial process.  The thoughts on this site are my own.
