“Like you, we come from a large enterprise, so we understand your challenges.”

Why MetaScale for your big data projects? Like you, we come from a large enterprise with intensive computational and analytical requirements, so we relate to your challenges…such as constant pressure to cut costs, deliver decision-critical information faster, migrate to faster processing cycles or real time – and answer more difficult questions using data. We can provide strategic guidance and support to keep your Hadoop, Spark and NoSQL efforts on course and transition your technological challenges to business opportunities.

Our Team – Enterprise Hadoop and NoSQL Experts

MetaScale Team grew out the Sears Holdings big data journey of implementing and using Hadoop in a large enterprise. As an early adopter of the technology, we had to develop unique solutions for challenges such as migrating data and applications from Mainframe into Hadoop - and transferring the data back again if needed - making Hadoop secure in an enterprise environment, and rewriting legacy code (COBOL) for Hadoop. These skills are a departure for traditional architects, developers and database administrators, but we were successful in transitioning to open platforms and can help you achieve the same…much faster than doing it on your own.

Guided by MetaScale leadership that provides a strong background in driving both enterprise-scale and line of business strategic initiatives, our team offers inclusive onsite and remote consulting services from our Chicago based headquarters and offshore support from our India delivery center.
