The unprecedented rate at which enterprises are capturing information continues to outpace their capacity to analyze and use it. The proliferation of data types, sensors, operational devices, and applications that collect the data is fueling the status quo.
Gartner has released its Magic Quadrant report that looks at leading platforms for data integration. Written by analysts Mark A. Beyer, Eric Thoo, Mei Yang Selvage and Ehtisham Zaidi, the report breaks down the top offerings in the categories of Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries and Niche Players, depending on the overall strength of each product in the market. Denodo is included as a Visionary.
Our friends over at data virtualization (DV) provider Denodo had some interesting takes on the industry. Denodo executives offered the following trends: capitalizing on in-memory computing, understanding the impact (and benefits) of edge computing and finally how machine learning can drive integration automation.
In this blog, Ravi Shankar, CMO at Denodo, describes the Denodo platform and how it supports Hortonworks Data Platform. In addition to earning HDP certification, Denodo has earned YARN Ready and Security Ready badges, demonstrating their integration with YARN, and their focus on data security and governance.
As opposed to the traditional style of data integration - Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) - Denodo is real time data integration or data virtualization, which allows you to interact with your data sources without physically centralizing it. Like Looker, we do not require users to physically move their data and this is very useful for quickly accessing new data sources for ad hoc exploration.
The main advantage of data virtualization is speed-to-market, where we can build a solution in a fraction of the time it takes to build a data warehouse. This is because you don’t need to design and build the data warehouse and the ETL to copy the data into it, and also don’t need to spend as much time testing. Copying the data means more hardware costs, more software licenses, more ETL flows to build and maintain, more data inconsistencies and more data governance costs, so using data virtualization can also save you a lot of money.
There are many factors when people make a purchase, all of which tie into how convenient that product is to them. Speed is what makes a difference there. With faster solutions, consumers have the instant gratification they want in that purchase. Data Virtualization changes the data integration market with one simple factor – it is faster; and in the simplest terms, that can be enough to change the market and completely revolutionize data integration.
Denodo provides an innovative data virtualization platform that is many years ahead of its competitors. The Denodo Platform delivers easier access to information for agile BI, big data analytics, and cloud integration. As a testament to the value of Denodo technology, hundreds of customers across five continents in more than 30 industries rely on the Denodo Platform for mission-critical projects.
“We can throw Business Intelligence tools at problems and we can have really smart technicians write code but if it’s not serving the needs of the business and actually answering questions that people need to know, then ultimately, our work is futile,” said Dan Young, Chief Data Architect at Indiana University (IU). Young said that IU found a way to answer those questions for multiple schools and departments by using Data Virtualization provided by Denodo.
Asurion, the global leader in connected life services, announced today that it was honored with a 2017 TDWI Best Practices Award in the Enterprise Data Warehouse category for developing a next-generation data architecture that can provide customers with more personalized smart tech help as well as enable the Company to develop and refine global products and services more quickly, all while adhering to the strict data privacy laws of multiple governments worldwide.
