Data Science Studio: 'Mikan' Version Released

Technology|Corporate| October 22, 2014| Clement

Today, we are proud to announce the release of Data Science Studio V1.3 codenamed Mikan for both the Enterprise and Community Editions of DSS.

Three months after the release of 'Sisho' (V1.2), DSS 'Mikan' introduces some of the most requested features for even smoother projects around data analysis.

Improved R integration

DSS lets you work on your data with both visual accelerators and interactive coding environments.

In addition to Python, Pig, Hive, Impala, and SQL, DSS now features an integration with the widely used statistic language R:

  • Work interactively on DSS datasets thanks to R notebooks
  • Read and write datasets on any storage with R

Working with R in DSS is now just a breeze!

Advanced Clusters profiling

DSS's visual Machine Learning interface guides you through the creation and improvement of your models.

We've greatly enhanced clustering so that you can easily explore your models' results.

  • View and compare your clusters thanks to visualizations
  • Helpful facts and metrics are automatically computed for each cluster
  • Name and describe your clusters as you go along

Better Hadoop integration

When working with Hadoop, DSS frees you from the burdens of technical integration. DSS now supports many new Hadoop file formats, even when you are working with Pig, Hive, and Impala:

  • Avro
  • Parquet
  • Sequence files
  • RC and ORC files

New options for complex data flows

The DataFlow is the place where you can navigate and manage your entire workflow (datasets, recipes, models…) from your raw data to your final models. We've added new tools to manage complex data flows:

  • Preview your jobs and understand how your datasets interact with each other
  • Benefit from new features for advanced dataset partitionning

Other improvements

In this version, you'll also notice improvements in the user experience thanks to interface bug fixes (thanks to all of your feedback).

Data Science Studio V 1.3 is available right now. Download the free edition of Data Science Studio: the Community Edition. Or, request a free online trial to discover the full Enterprise Edition.

We are curious about your use of this new version and we would love to hear your feedback!

Clement, CTO of Dataiku.
