Infoworks is a big data automation platform. That is, it automates – requires no coding – all the steps required for Hadoop deployments from ingestion through to the generation of OLAP (online analytic processing) cubes and/or the creation of data science models. However, there are also two subsets of this for which the product is suitable. The first of these is the migration of all or part of an enterprise data warehouse, or data mart, onto Hadoop; and the second is creation and management of data lakes more generally.
