The Next Move in Data Discovery: The Hive Group Announces Honeycomb Studio 5.10

RICHARDSON, Texas, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hive Group, the world's leading provider of treemap interfaces, today announces the release of Honeycomb Studio 5.10. Honeycomb Studio advances data discovery to a new level, offering a flexible managed environment for administering large-scale deployments of treemap applications. The latest release introduces major new options for accessing data, accommodates diverse user populations and needs, and tailors new design flows around the creation and management of the data objects that underlie Honeycomb applications.

Honeycomb Studio deployments are often managed by centralized IT functions -- to ensure that standards and formalized distribution channels are followed. However, in many instances, Honeycomb Studio is deployed specifically to provide users with self-service access and analysis capabilities. Jim Bartoo, CEO of The Hive Group, comments, "We've designed Studio to be incredibly flexible. Some organizations will rely on a centralized IT function to generate sanctioned treemap applications using traditional data sources (pointing to database tables or leveraging SQL queries from within Studio). In other settings, everyday end users, analysts, and senior executives may create their own treemaps -- and may also have additional data they wish to use -- perhaps stored locally, or in a Google spreadsheet, or even residing at a URL. Honeycomb Studio 5.10 supports all these possibilities, and makes sharing and publishing treemap applications very easy."

Honeycomb Studio 5.10 also means that data discovery capabilities can be deployed with confidence. Studio upholds basic philosophies around building and sharing treemaps, among them: a "create once" principle, support for "live treemaps" of live data, auto-customization of views for each user, and sharing and publishing functionality that respects each user's security.

Mark Waters was a pioneering user of Honeycomb Studio, first using the software while working at Sun Microsystems. Specializing in supply chain and quality management initiatives, Mark subsequently implemented Honeycomb at Westcor, and he continues to introduce Honeycomb for complex data discovery needs. He comments, "The advances offered by The Hive Group demonstrate their depth of commitment to the treemap interface and to the specific needs of their users."

Honeycomb Studio 5.10 delivers much more power than a simple dashboard application. Since Studio exists as an entire managed environment, it is aware of each user's security profile, delivering only those views that are appropriate to each user, and populating those views only with data that is relevant to each user. Honeycomb treemap applications may be distributed to audiences of hundreds or thousands, and the treemaps will automatically customize themselves to each end user's security. There's no burden on the designer to re-create customized applications. And again, that designer might belong to a centralized IT group, or may be an operational end-user.

David Dewitt first used Honeycomb while serving as Marine Expeditionary Force Communications Maintenance Chief in the United States Marine Corps. Certified in Continuous Process Improvement and specializing in Six Sigma, David is now employed by L-3 Communications managing their data analysis challenges. "For The Hive Group, it's not just about data discovery ... it's data discovery elevated, and placed into operational contexts," remarked David.

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.
