Privitar Announces Strategic Partnership with Data Integration and Management Leader Denodo to Advance Modern Data Provisioning

Privitar | April 20, 2022

Privitar
Privitar, the leader in modern data provisioning, today announced a strategic partnership with Denodo, the leader in data integration and management software. With this new partnership, Privitar and Denodo are aligning to advance modern data provisioning and put safe data at the core of any data mesh and logical data fabric powered by data virtualization.

“For an organization to be able to maximize their use of data for analytics, it needs to be both safe and accessible to the right people, at the right time. By combining Privitar’s domain expertise in data privacy and modern data provisioning with Denodo’s leadership in data virtualization we‘re creating a force multiplier effect, enabling organizations to take an agile approach to creating, managing, governing, and protecting data products – then safely leverage that data for analytics within their organizations and beyond.”

Mike Foster, Vice President of Technology Partners at Privitar

Organizations are increasingly embracing data mesh and data fabrics as the basis of their modern architecture stacks, taking advantage of their ability to democratize both data access and management. By treating data as a product, it can be built once and reused in different analytical workloads rather than repeatedly re-inventing data integration pipelines to create that same information for different analytical systems.

Data virtualization has risen to the fore as a key enabler of data mesh architectures, being leveraged to produce, consume, and govern data products. Similarly, for any enterprise data fabric, data virtualization ensures less data copying and data replication, thus ensuring faster time-to-insights, better adherence to compliance, and stricter data governance. Safe, trusted data must be at the core of these systems to ensure that data remains safeguarded.

The combination of Denodo’s data virtualization and Privitar’s data privacy and provisioning solutions will enable organizations to manage and provision data products and sensitive data; automatically and transparently enforce governance policies based on the user, the location sensitivity, and intended purpose data; and remain compliant with relevant regulations and legislation.

“Denodo’s logical approach to data integration and management brings agility and flexibility, and can help organizations address the growing, layered complexities of data integration, management, and delivery,” said Suresh Chandrasekaran, Executive Vice President, Denodo. “Our partnership with Privitar will enable organizations to automatically and transparently allow sensitive data to be consistently governed while remaining protected and compliant with legislation. We’re empowering organizations to unlock the value of distributed data, no matter where it lives, using the power of data virtualization and privacy-enhancing technology.”

Our modern data provisioning solution builds collaborative workflows and policy-based data privacy and access controls into data operations. Only Privitar has the right combination of technology, domain expertise, and best practices to support data-driven innovation while navigating regulations and protecting customer trust.

Over the last five years, Nordisk Film has been on a journey to deploy strategies that meet modern consumer demands while leveraging fact-based decisions. Nordisk Film’s prior business intelligence systems required significant maintenance, service, and dedicated storage space and memory. This made the system difficult for users to work with and limited Nordisk’s ability to scale the use of data for decisions. Nordisk Film was also looking to increase collaboration and streamline its different computer systems and data warehouses into a single cloud platform. Nordisk Film chose to move to Qlik Cloud for importing, clearing and analyzing data in order to make more informed business decisions while leveraging Qlik Sense® SaaS. “Previously we spent a lot of time with maintenance and making sure our internal systems worked. “We migrated our old local platform to a Qlik environment, saving us time and allowing us to take advantage of the latest technical developments and improve our data structure for a more mature approach to analytics.” Mikkel Hecht Hansen, Head of BI at Nordisk Film For Nordisk Film, it is important to have a cost-effective and scalable platform, while also being able to leverage modern analytics capabilities such as augmented analytics and mobile access. “Qlik has given us a completely different dimension of new knowledge and opportunities through, among other things, Insight Advisor. Along with an easy and simple security login through Azure AD, Qlik gives us many insights and data-driven facts that help us make better decisions,” said Hansen. Insight Advisor is the AI assistant built into Qlik Sense that generates advanced analytics and insights using natural language interaction for Nordisk analytics users. Another key innovation in Qlik’s platform that is bringing value to Nordisk is Collaborative Notes, which allows employees to comment or write longer reports directly in the analytics environment. And Qlik being easy-to-learn and applicable to many different business areas has helped Nordisk Film expand analytics adoption across the business. “Nordisk Film is a great example of an incredible brand that is leveraging Qlik Cloud to accelerate its transformation into a data-driven business,” said Francisco Mateo-Sidron, Senior Vice President EMEA for Qlik. “We look forward to helping Nordisk continue to expand its ability to leverage cloud analytics for impact throughout the entire organization.” About Nordisk Film Nordisk Film is a leading Nordic entertainment and experience company focused on storytelling across platforms.
