Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". It is especially true in technology space, as it requires plethora of adept engineering in backend to craft a simple and sleek end product; a rare gift not everyone is endowed with.

Qubole, a big data as service company is one such gem. Qubole provides Hadoop-as-a-Service via its Qubole Data Service (QDS) platform, a cloud computing solution that eliminates the operational challenges of running Big data Analytics to make it accessible, easy, fast, and inexpensive. The company has optimized the big data stack to work well on public cloud and has built a distinguished Hadoop offering that auto scales with customer workloads and ensures tremendous cost savings. Being on the cloud, it not only saves the human capital cost that is required to assemble analytics infrastructure and more importantly saves cost on hardware by taking advantage of the elasticity that the cloud offers. Qubole democratizes access to data within an organization and empowers both developers and non-developers, e.g. data analysts, to learn actionable insights from massive data sets.
