Key features of the Meniscus Analytics Platform, your turnkey big data analytics tool for high performance and seamless integration of all your data

MODULES

Modules provide fully extensible functionality for importing, pre-processing, calculating, invalidating and creating items. Multiple instances of each module can run on separate servers providing true scalability.

Importers

Enables sub second import from multiple data sources and loads raw data into a temporary buffer. New Importers can be easily added for new data formats and types

Raw Data Pre-processor

Processes the raw data in the temporary buffer and stores it in the MongoDB database

Item Factories

Creates and updates the Item structure for each Entity. Item Factories can be called from the API or from the Web Client to automatically create new Entiies or to update existing ones.

Invalidators

Sets the conditions under which an Item will be re-calculated. Invalidators can be time based (i.e. at a specific time), event based (i.e. when a new raw data point is added) or calcualtion based (i.e. when a calculation delivers a specific result.

Calculators

Extracts Raw Data for the Item from the database and carries out the specific calculations for each Item created in the Item Factories

CALCULATION QUEUE

MAP supports a Calculation Queue that processes all the invalidated Items that can required re-calculating. The MAP Calculation Queue operates in such a way that it is totally scalable. Item properties can be invalidated by API call or from a web client. An invalidated Item will automatically invalidate every dependent Item.

DATA TYPES

MAP supports any Data Type and a number are available as standard such as grids (block and vector), lookup and scalar and time series values. Fully extensible so users can create new Data Type specific to your needs.

ALARMS

Configureable alarms for any Items or for the entire system.

REPORTS

Scheduled e-mailing of management reports. Only available as part of an overall hosted service.

RESTful API

A fully featured RESTful Analytics API is available to configure, upload and download your application.

UNLIMITED GROUPING HIERARCHY

MAP supports an unlimited grouping hierarchy and one that can dynamically be changed by adding/updating the appropriate Item Factory.
