Denodo
Denodo, a leader in data management, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc., a leading independent technology and market research company, has positioned Denodo as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Fabric, Q2 2022. According to the report, “Denodo is best fit for customers that are focusing on an enterprise-wide data fabric strategy to support BI, data collaboration, customer intelligence, data engineering, data science, IoT analytics, operational insights, and predictive analytics use cases.”

The complete and complementary report, published on June 23, is available here.

The Wave revealed that organizations want real-time, consistent, connected, and trusted data to support their critical business operations and insights. However, new data sources, slow data movement between platforms, rigid data transformation workflows, and governance rules, expanding data volume, and distributed data across clouds and on-premises, can cause organizations to fail when executing their data strategy.

Forrester VP, Principal Analyst and author of the report, Noel Yuhanna wrote, “Denodo Technologies has been a longtime player in data virtualization and now supports data fabric with expanded integration, management, and delivery capabilities to support self-service BI, advanced analytics, and enterprise data services.”

With some of the best in class and latest innovations, Denodo Platform offers:

  • An augmented data catalog to facilitate data exploration, discovery, improved collaboration and data governance.
  • Active metadata-based historical analysis, which serves as the foundation for AI processes.
  • A semantic layer with extended metadata to enrich traditional technical information with business terms, tags, status, or documentation, to fuel improvements in self-service, security, and governance across all data assets.
  • AI-based recommendations to learn from usage and simplify the entire lifecycle of the data management practice, including development, operations, performance tuning, etc.
  • DataOps and multi-cloud provisioning to reduce management and operational cost and enable the system to be cloud-vendor agnostic.

“We are thrilled to see our position as a leader in the Forrester Wave for Enterprise Data Fabric. “Most of our customers, including many Fortune 500, use our platform to build their enterprise data fabric for use cases such as IoT analytics, customer intelligence, fraud detection, real-time analytics, operational insights and many more, which are all areas where Denodo received the maximum score possible. We are looking forward to continuing to help organizations across the world unleash their data-driven decision making power to create an enterprise level logical data fabric.”

IBM Launches New Software to Break Down Data Silos and Streamline Planning and Analytics

IBM | November 04, 2022

IBM has announced new software designed to help enterprises break down data and analytics silos so they can make data-driven decisions quickly and navigate unpredictable disruptions. IBM Business Analytics Enterprise is a suite of business intelligence planning, budgeting, reporting, forecasting, and dashboard capabilities that provides users with a robust view of data sources across their entire business. Along with IBM Planning Analytics with Watson and IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson, this suite also includes a new IBM Analytics Content Hub that helps streamline how users discover and access analytics and planning tools from multiple vendors in a single, personalized dashboard view. According to an August 2022 Forrester report, advanced insights-driven organizations are 1.6x more likely to report using data, analytics, and insights to create experiences, products, and services that differentiate them within the market when compared to beginners1. However, companies are currently facing a highly dynamic operating environment where they must navigate unpredictable events such as supply chain disruptions, labor and skills shortages, evolving regulations, and more. The complexity of storing data across disparate silos can make this more challenging as teams collaborate across different analytics and business intelligence tools. To become data-driven, businesses can differentiate themselves by creating an enterprise-wide strategy that enables them to bring together their tools and put insights into the hands of decision makers. Building on IBM's existing portfolio of business intelligence solutions, IBM Business Analytics Enterprise includes a new IBM Analytics Content Hub. It is designed to allow users to view planning and analytics dashboards from multiple vendors, including tools like IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson, IBM Planning Analytics with Watson, and other common business intelligence tools into a single view that combines elements from each in a dashboard tailored to their unique needs. Additionally, it features algorithms that can recommend role-based content to help users surface new stories, reports, and dashboards from across the organization to aid in decision-making. As more users click through materials within the IBM Analytics Content Hub, the solution analyzes usage patterns to recommend content that aligns with their specific interests. New Capabilities for IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson; IBM Planning Analytics with Watson expected to be available on AWS With today's news, IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson, an AI-powered business intelligence solution, now also includes new integration capabilities and enhanced forecasting that allows users to consider multiple factors and seasons in their trend predictions. Additionally, IBM Planning Analytics with Watson, an AI-powered solution that helps streamline financial and operational planning, is expected to be available as-a-Service on AWS later this year. IBM Business Analytics Enterprise is designed to help break down silos so that the right teams can get the right data at the right time. For instance, an organization's sales, HR, and operations teams each require access to data and insights from different business intelligence and planning tools for their specific needs, such as optimizing sales goals, building workforce forecasts, or predicting operational capacity. But when it's necessary to share data and reporting across departments, complexities can arise because those teams are using multiple solutions. This can result in duplicate content across applications, which can threaten data consistency and quality. IBM Business Analytics Enterprise helps enterprise data be more easily shared, while remaining protected and avoiding data duplication by giving users across departments a single point of entry to view the data they need. "Businesses today are trying to become more data-driven than ever as they navigate the unexpected in the face of supply chain disruptions, labor and skills shortages and regulatory changes. "But to truly be data-driven, organizations need to be able to provide their different teams with more comprehensive access to analytics tools and a more complete picture of their business data, without jeopardizing their compliance, security or privacy programs. IBM Business Analytics Enterprise offers a way to bring together analytics tools in a single view, regardless of which vendor it comes from or where the data resides." Dinesh Nirmal, General Manager of Data, AI and Automation, IBM ALH Gruppe is a leading finance and insurance company in Germany, and with thousands of employees who need access to data insights, the majority of whom are not data scientists or highly technical users, they sought a solution to help streamline their data infrastructure even more. "We've been using IBM Cognos Analytics with Watson for well over a decade now to support decision-making of all kinds across our business. We frequently use it in conjunction with other business intelligence tools, and one challenge was that those tools were always standing side-by-side with no connection between them and the data was separated," said Bernd Oerthle, Head of Analytics Reporting and Infrastructure, ALH Gruppe. "With the new IBM Analytics Content Hub, we plan to connect internal stakeholders to multiple different BI solutions for easy access to self-service data, enabling better support for our end customers." The launch of Business Analytics Enterprise further builds on IBM's strategy to provide businesses with tools to support data-driven decision-making. IBM Cloud Pak for Data and IBM's business intelligence solutions work in tandem to help clients create a data fabric architecture that simplifies data integration, allowing them to run their analytics anywhere and take advantage of data across different environments. About IBM IBM is a leading global hybrid cloud and AI, and business services provider, helping clients in more than 175 countries capitalize on insights from their data, streamline business processes, reduce costs and gain the competitive edge in their industries. Nearly 3,800 government and corporate entities in critical infrastructure areas such as financial services, telecommunications and healthcare rely on IBM's hybrid cloud platform and Red Hat OpenShift to affect their digital transformations quickly, efficiently, and securely. IBM's breakthrough innovations in AI, quantum computing, industry-specific cloud solutions and business services deliver open and flexible options to our clients.

Altair to Acquire RapidMiner, Continuing Expansion of Broad Data Analytics Portfolio

Altair | September 14, 2022

Altair , a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI), signed a definitive agreement to acquire RapidMiner, a leader in advanced data analytics and machine learning (ML) software. RapidMiner's low-code platform is used by more than one million people of all skill levels to develop production-scale data pipelines and ML models, putting advanced data analytics into the hands of those who know the domain problems best. It provides hundreds of powerful, drag-and-drop building blocks to transform and augment data – greatly accelerating work for coders and non-coders alike – and its flexible delivery models provide users and enterprises with the scale they need, from a user's desktop to on-premises servers to secure, multi-tenant cloud. "This acquisition significantly strengthens Altair's end-to-end data analytics (DA) portfolio, which already offers customers the power to understand, transform, act on, and automate their data. "Machine learning is becoming an essential part of business, but often the barriers to building ML models are too high to get started. Too much data, not enough data science expertise, and insecure or unscalable production environments can all keep a business from executing on their data analytics vision. That's where RapidMiner can be transformative." James R. Scapa, founder and chief executive officer, Altair RapidMiner's cloud platform takes the best of RapidMiner desktop and adds the strength of the cloud, bringing additional scale and governance to the low-code platform. This multi-tenant, SaaS-ready version enables organizations to ramp up their data science workloads easily and safely. RapidMiner resonates with users in the data analytics community due to its talented, hands-on technical team with decades of experience, led by founder and chief technology officer Dr. Ingo Mierswa, who will join Altair. Under Mierswa's leadership, RapidMiner pioneered the entire concept of visual, explainable data science, and was the first platform to introduce automatic data science, text analytics, automated feature engineering, deep learning, and more. "Altair and RapidMiner share the same vision to make data analytics simple enough for all users, but scalable, governed, and safe enough for all enterprises," said Mierswa. "We see this as an incredibly exciting opportunity to watch our solutions grow across the globe and expand into a larger, more powerful ecosystem." RapidMiner reinforces Altair's DA market position in several verticals – especially manufacturing and financial services – through industry expertise and industry-specific ML techniques and data source connections. Sitting next to dozens of existing Altair products already in these verticals, RapidMiner presents an exciting new offering for new and existing customers who will be able to access existing Altair and RapidMiner products easily through Altair's unique units licensing model. RapidMiner will be integrated with existing tools, such as Altair Knowledge Studio, Altair SmartWorks, and Altair SLC, to provide a comprehensive, code-optional, multi-language, SaaS-ready, cloud-scale platform for enterprise data analytics and data science. About Altair Altair is a global leader in computational science and artificial intelligence (AI) that provides software and cloud solutions in simulation, high-performance computing (HPC), data analytics, and AI. Altair enables organizations across all industries to compete more effectively and drive smarter decisions in an increasingly connected world – all while creating a greener, more sustainable future.
