Data Architecture and Analytics

MetaScale is unique in the big data space. Unlike most vendors, we are not an analytics software company "created" to offer a point solution for big data; nor are we a traditional IT consulting firm that "created" a big data practice as an add-on to their existing business.

MetaScale is a pure big data consulting and services company "born" out of the journey of implementing Hadoop and NoSQL tools within our parent - Sears Holdings Corporation. We offer enterprise-class skills hardened over years of deploying highly demanding production workloads to transform a variety of business verticals including Marketing, Pricing, Supply Chain, Operations and Finance. In short, we provide rigorously tested and proven big data technology, talent and solutions that deliver results for your Hadoop and NoSQL initiatives.

No matter where you are in your big data journey - Exploring, Building, Advancing - MetaScale can help.

Whether there is an opportunity to partner together or not, we are happy to share our experience and offer our vendor-neutral perspective to your big data challenges. Contact us today - we are Your One-Stop Big Data Helpline.
