Palo Alto, CA, December 08, 2016 - Denodo, the leader in data virtualization software, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc., a leading independent technology and market research company, has positioned Denodo as a “Strong Performer” in the Big Data fabric market. Forrester emphasizes the value of big data fabric platforms for big data initiatives in its research report, The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Fabric, Q4 2016.
In its report, Forrester states that the Big Data fabric market “is growing largely because enterprise architecture (EA) pros see Big Data fabric as a strategic platform to support their next-generation applications and insights.”
In the report, Forrester states that unlike other large software vendors in the evaluation, Denodo is a pure-play data virtualization vendor now extending the platform to support big data initiatives.It also cites Denodo’s “mature data virtualization technology that broadens its coverage to support big data fabric use cases” The report points out that, “Today, several enterprises are leveraging Denodo to support big data fabric deployments — such as virtual big data marts, big data analytics, real-time analytics, and IoT data processing — in various vertical industries”.
According to the report, 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).” The report also stated that Denodo’s customers like its “easy-to-use, simple yet sophisticated data modeling capabilities, search, and support for various Big Data sources.”
The Denodo Platform integrates with Big Data sources such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Vertica and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). Recently, HPE tested and validated the Denodo Platform for integration with HPE Vertica as either a data source or a high-performance cache, with maximum interoperability and performance. Also, the Denodo Platform has received Hortonworks HDP certification and Yarn Ready certification. These certifications enable customers to readily build logical data warehouses and data lakes. In fact, Denodo customer, Seacoast Bank, implemented the Denodo Platform as a Logical Data Warehouse in less than half the time of a traditional data warehouse.
“We believe Forrester’s inclusion of Denodo in its Big Data Fabric Wave affirms this critical role of the Denodo Platform in bringing business agility to Big Data initiatives,” said Ravi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer at Denodo. “We are proud to be acknowledged as a strong performer by Forrester for our Big Data fabric capabilities. Denodo version 6.0 includes specific capabilities such as the Dynamic Query Optimizer for Big Data implementations enabling fast data strategy for our customers.”
