Forrester Wave™: Big Data Fabric Q4 2016

Denodo is a “Strong Performer” in Big Data Fabric Offerings and Strategy


Big data fabric is accelerating the delivery of insights by automating key processes for increased agility while giving business users more autonomy in the data preparation process. Enterprises use it to support many use cases, such as enabling 360-degree and multidimensional views of the customer, internet-of-things (Iot) and real-time analytics, offloading data warehouses, fraud detection, integrated analytics, and risk analytics.

The accessibility of vast amounts of multi-structured data, coupled with competitive pressure to glean actionable insights from data in real time, is driving enterprises to seek “big data fabric” platforms to fuel their big data initiatives. The objective is to concentrate emerging big data technologies within a single platform to automate the many facets of data discovery, preparation, curation, orchestration and integration across a multitude of data sources.

To this respect, Denodo was recognized as a "Strong Performer" in the Forrester Wave™: Big Data Fabric Q4 2016 report. According to Forrester, Denodo’s key strength is “delivering a unified and centralized data services fabric with security and real-time integration across multiple traditional and big data sources, including Hadoop, NoSQL, cloud, and software-as-a-service (SaaS).”

At Denodo, we regard data virtualization as the best-fit big data fabric technology to answer the key big data challenges reported by enterprises:

  • Access to disparate data
  • Lack of relevant big data skillsets
  • Support for a variety of emerging use cases

We firmly believe that by employing the Denodo Platform, organizations have easy access to the big data ecosystem without the need for dedicating time and resources to deciphering various multi-structured data formats. Denodo’s graphical user interface enables developers and users to model, unify and deliver the data to multiple consumers without having to learn complex languages.
