The big data booster
Enma is the big data software developed by CIMNE BEE Group that allows to store, manage and analyse vast amounts of structured and unstructured data quickly, reliably, flexibly and at low-cost
Scalabitiy and Performance
Distributed processing of data local to each node in a cluster enables Enma to store, manage, process and analyze data at petabyte scale.
Enma is resilient – when a node fails processing is re-directed to the remaining nodes in the cluster and data is automatically re-replicated in preparation for future node failures.
Data can be stored in any format, including semi-structured or unstructured formats, and then parse and apply schema to the data when read.
Unlike proprietary software, Enma is open source and runs on low-cost commodity hardware.
Enma data source is at Bitbucket!
You will find the code and necessary instructions to set up Enma: General architecture and installation, database models,analytical modules and documentation for module developers (Hive, Python, R…)
The story behind Enma
Enma was initially developed within the EMPOWERING project, which aimed at help consumers to save energy thanks to the information on their meter or bill. It was a co-founded project by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union.
Empowering customers to save energy by informative billing
Within the EMPOWERING project, 4 ambitious utility companies, supported by an international team of university researchers, social scientists and energy experts join forces to empower 344,000 European households to positively manage their energy consumption. This was done by improving the information on energy bills and by offering online tools.
IEE – Intelligent Energy Europe programme.
The Empowering project has encouraged utility customers to save energy and money by receiving useful information such as informative energy bills and/or specially designed online tools.
Who is Enma?
Enma is the name taken for the big data platform of the BEE Group, that arises from our slogan ENergy that MAtters. We found the analogy with Enma, the Japanese name of Yama, the god of the underworld in Buddhist mythology, the manager of hell who “analyse” acts after a human dies and “takes decision” to fall into hell or go to heaven.
