Denodo Named Winner of the 2015 Ventana Research Technology Innovation Award for Information Management

Data Virtualization Provider Recognized for Unmatched Performance & Unified Access to the Broadest Range of Enterprise, Big Data, Cloud, and Unstructured Sources.

PALO ALTO, CA, October 13, 2015 - Denodo, the leader in data virtualization software, today announced that it has been named the winner of the 2015 Ventana Research Technology Innovation award for Information Management. Ventana Research awarded Denodo this distinction for its ability to rapidly deliver better quality information while lowering integration costs by as much as 80% through the use of data virtualization technology. Specifically, the award-winning Denodo Platform was recognized for its innovation in agile data access, data abstraction, self-service data discovery, and complete access to business information resulting in cost-efficiency, improved customer service, faster time-to-market, and a significant increase in ROI.

Data virtualization is the more agile data integration style that presents the relevant, interrelated data, in real-time and in a consistent format irrespective of underlying database systems, structures, and storage. Since data virtualization doesn’t replicate or store data, it delivers the complete, business-critical information at a fraction of the cost and time. Business users benefit from faster access to data and IT teams continue to deliver data undisrupted without worrying about changes to the underlying systems.

“With the explosion of data and the need for businesses to access and use data quickly requires faster and smarter approaches than just traditional data integration,” said Mark Smith, CEO & Chief Research Officer Ventana Research. “Denodo’s Data Virtualization Platform enables a more agile and adaptive approach to engage all data no matter where it is stored for operational and analytical requirements. Denodo was selected as it has advanced information management by providing an independent approach to data virtualization and should be congratulated for its product innovation.”

The Denodo Platform offers the broadest access to structured and unstructured data residing in enterprise, Big Data, and cloud sources, in both batch and real-time. The solution exceeds the performance needs of data-intensive organizations for both analytical and operational use cases, and delivers the data in a much shorter timeframe than traditional data integration tools. Denodo’s sophisticated data modeling capabilities, intelligent caching, query optimization, fine-grain security, and support for complex, real-time analytics make it the leader in data virtualization.

“We are absolutely thrilled that we have been named as the winner of 2015 Ventana Research’s Technology Innovation Award in the Information Management category,” said Ravi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer at Denodo. “Denodo's objective is to help its customers get timely access to data in a world of fragmented repositories, heterogeneous technologies, and rapid data growth. Denodo has witnessed real business success as customers embrace data virtualization as the modern, agile approach to data integration that transcends ETL’s limitations.”
