Datameer Offers Governance for Hadoop Analytics

Hadoop Data Governance

We’re all thinking the same thing, aren’t we? You can have the throne to govern our analytics, Datameer, just don’t go all King Joffrey on us.

This morning, Datameer announced new data governance capabilities for its native Hadoop environment. With rich features and flexible integration, the company’s new offering ensures enterprise-grade data integrity and regulatory compliance. According to the vendor: “As a pioneer in big data analytics, Datameer is helping solidify Hadoop as a mature and transparent platform for production-ready, mission-critical and regulatory-compliant analytics use cases.”

Big data analytics is transforming into something very complex as a result of new use cases which it can be applied to. Those who analyze data need an easier way to navigate through pipelines that have been developed by different participants and departments and involve more than data source. In addition, many of these use cases now incorporate sensitive data sets and require compliance with various regulations. As these types of use cases increase (and they will), quality, consistency, and data cleanliness become much more important.

Data policies, standards, data security, privacy, regulatory, compliance, and retention are becoming essential capabilities for enterprises, regardless of industry. What Datameer’s new offering does for users is take away the choice of a governable data regime and the ease-of-use of a self-service Hadoop platform. Hadoop users can now have their cake and eat it, too. By adding Datameer’s premium module, organizations can now see clearly into their data pipelines, and can provide IT departments with the tools necessary to audit for compliance with internal and external regulations.

Datameer governance for Hadoop analytics provides:

  • Quality and consistency
  • Data policies and standards
  • Data security and privacy
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Retention and archiving

Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer notes: “Hadoop has been seen as the Wild West in which vendors have been developing different products for the ecosystem without really thinking about data governance and sophisticated security protocols. With these new features we’re driving home the point that we’re serious about helping enterprises transform their business into data-driven organizations.”
