PAXATA NAMED A COOL VENDOR IN GARTNER’S COOL VENDORS FOR DATA INTEGRATION AND DATA QUALITY, 2014 REPORT
Adaptive Data Preparation™ sets standard for evolving toolset for business analysts, delivering self-service data integration, transformation, quality, enrichment and governance
Paxata, pioneers of the first Adaptive Data Preparation™ platform that rapidly connects, explores, transforms and combines data, today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner as one of three Cool Vendors in Data Integration and Data Quality. Each year, Gartner publishes a series of research reports in key technology areas that highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services. Paxata delivers a cloud-based, self-service environment for data integration, transformation, quality, enrichment and governance, purpose-built for business analysts. For the full report, click here.
"We're honored to be recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner,” said Prakash Nanduri, Co-Founder and CEO of Paxata. “From our earliest days as a company, we have focused on transforming the lives of business analysts with a self-service, business-and-IT friendly solution that reduces the time and friction it takes to get varied data sets ready for ANY analytics exercise, be it an ad-hoc exercise in a tool like Tableau, a packaged analytical application such as Anaplan, or a custom predictive analytics model.”
Before Paxata, 60 percent or more of a business analyst’s time in any analytic exercise was wasted on manual and mundane data preparation. Business Intelligence teams lacked a collaborative solution that allowed them to rapidly explore, clean, enrich, harmonize and combine data, while also giving IT the necessary capability to provision data and track how the data gets prepared and by whom, avoiding the legacy spreadmarts that have created data compliance issues for years.
The Paxata vision is driven by extensive market validation that the next generation enterprise analytics architecture requires a completely new unified data preparation platform: one that is built from the ground-up to supersede the purely relational model by representing the full spectrum between structured and unstructured data types so users can automatically detect, clean, combine and enrich multiple data types in real-time leveraging semantic learning algorithms. In addition, security, data lineage, and granular usage tracking are fundamental services built-in to enable true collaboration with governance. Finally, this platform must be a cloud native architecture that can elastically scale with variable enterprise workloads, offering a high degree of flexibility and much lower cost of ownership than traditional alternatives.
“As the pioneers of the Adaptive Data Preparation category, everyone at Paxata is relentless about delivering this next-generation platform. Data preparation – built from the ground up for business – cannot be an afterthought, nor can it be achieved by retrofitting legacy platforms,” said Nanduri. “We are thrilled that Gartner has recognized our efforts to date, in the first year of commercial availability of our solution. On behalf of the entire Paxata team, I thank all our customers and partners for their invaluable support in making this a reality.”
Featuring sophisticated algorithms and a highly interactive, business-friendly user experience, Paxata delivers pre-built data preparation services powered by IntelliFusion™, automated by proprietary machine learning, semantic indexing, statistical pattern recognition and other text analytics techniques. The elastic, in-memory data preparation engine is completely model-free and operates over a large variety and volumes of structured and unstructured data in real-time, enabled by a vector query processor with columnar data storage. Paxata is setting the new standard for data preparation that lets users adapt and enrich data sets on the fly, give peers visibility and collaboration controls as needed, and lets everyone, including IT, retain historical context of how data is shaped and prepared over time.

This report follows a number of recent accomplishments for the company, including its recognition as Red Herring’s Top 100 North America finalist, Best Business Analytics Startup by the GigaOm Structure Data Conference, as well as being named one of the Bay Area’s Best Places to Work by the San Francisco Business Times.

Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for ‘normal’ companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, founder and chief executive officer of Nimboxx, will discuss the evolution of virtualization (hardware, application, memory, storage) and how commodity / open source hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) so...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
