I am looking for a cost effective analytics platform (rather than have to write it myself).
I need a platform where I can configure calculations, where dependencies are worked out (and acted on) and that has a rich API so that I can upload raw data, download calculated data and obtain the status of the system. I would also like to perform aggregation on the data, preferably on the fly.
Excel is just not good enough and some of the platforms out there are just expensive so I am looking for a platform to support the work that I am doing that is not going to cost a huge amount of money.
Does anyone know where to look for this sort of thing? I am struggling but there must be something out there.
a) I have a set of raw data and this raw data is updated periodically.
b) I want to perform a series of calculations on this raw data. Ideally, I would to have access to properties of the raw data so that I can change them and recalculate.
c) I would like to be able to configure new calculations and have a UI to view the output.
d) I would like an API to send in the raw data and extract calculated data.
Some of the solutions out there are very expensive but I don't want to write this myself. I need a cost effective product to do this.
