Aster KNIME Workflow Integration: Aster Advanced Analytics Team Manila

Aster Extension for KNIME
Teradata Employee

I am very pleased to see the work our Manila team has put forth in building out an Aster Workflow tool.  Many people probably do not know that we have an offshore services team in Manila and India.  I have seen their work and it is very good.  They are also available for staff augmentation projects here in the United States. 

Please take a look at a glimpse of the work they have put together regarding the KNIME Aster Integration project:

This should become available very soon and please stay tuned for more details as to availability.

BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW:

The objective of the project is to integrate Teradata Aster  with KNIME to have a GUI-based workflow solution.

What is KNIME?

It is an open source data analytics, reporting and integration platform.

Building a workflow is as simple as dragging and connecting nodes together.

Deploying a workflow can be done quickly using the Workbench.

Executing a workflow is as easy as click of a button.

With this GUI-based workflow solution, implementing Aster Analytic solutions can be achieved faster and with little to no coding at all.

ASTER WORKFLOW AND KNIME:

Processing is performed in Aster to leverage the MPP architecture.

Nodes within a workflow can be executed in parallel.

Annotations can be added to group of logical set of activities and provide documentation.

KNIME ASTER PLUG-INS:

Aster SQL-MR functions are made available in KNIME through custom Aster plug-ins.

The Aster plug-ins (also called Aster nodes) offer a graphical user interface to specify parameter values which eliminates coding.

Examples of custom nodes:

Aster SQL-MR functions

Aster database connector

Aster database writer

Aster Visualization

D3 Visualization
