Attunity Maestro: Harmonizing Big Data Transfer Processes

Attunity Releases Maestro 2 Harmonizing Data IntegrationI think we can all agree that big data is no longer a buzz word as it’s effecting every fiber of business across sectors and industries. Whether it is creating a need for more data storage, faster data transfers, or more advanced analytical tools, it’s forcing IT and business professionals alike to take it seriously. Most companies have figured out that they have or will have an enormous amount of data to manage for years to come but before big data can be used to impact business, it must be managed efficiently.

How will this be achieved? One company called Attunity believes that it begins with integrating data processes into daily business activity. By using a workflow management platform, companies will be able to incorporate a wide range of users to create, execute, and monitor big data transfers. Attunity is a provider of information availability software solutions and on September 2nd, 2014, in a press release they unveiled Attunity Maestro 2.0, the latest version of their Big Data Management and distribution platform.

The solution’s latest capabilities allow logic and event-driven process control for greater control over business process as well as increased productivity across global and distributed infrastructures. This scalable platform orchestrates and automates data transfers for Big Data, applications, and large files across distributed data centers.

“The use of globally distributed data centers with many heterogeneous systems to manage are becoming common with large enterprises,” explained Lawrence Schwartz, VP Global Marketing at Attunity. “This kind of environment can make data management and distribution very complex. To handle these challenging environments, companies need to have a solution in place that includes broad platform support, high volume and velocity management over LAN and WAN, and especially centralized automation.”

“A solution like Attunity Maestro, with workflow automation and self-service capabilities, addresses these infrastructure demands. In turn, IT can then focus on higher value projects while lines of business are empowered to more easily meet SLAs and other real-time business requirements for faster and more seamless information availability, said Schwartz.”

The Attunity Maestro Center and user-friendly graphical interface manages Maestro Nodes across the company, which allows control and automation of processes across the enterprise’s IT landscape.

Using Attunity Maestro 2.0, organizations can:

  • Automate multi-stage IT processes and data flows into streamlined workflows
  • Schedule event-driven processes for better control
  • Facilitate collaborative operations between organizational silos
  • Enhance auditing and email notifications
  • Monitor, record and report business processes & authorization for improved compliance
  • Enjoy the benefits from higher efficiency and quick time-to-value

I believe Attunity’s combination of advanced workflow automation and self-service functionality is a move that will harmonize data management. The new release will make it extremely efficient for companies who are looking to streamline processes, reduce costs, and deliver the data into the hands of decision makers in real-time. Both will allow companies to operate leaner and realize the value of the data faster as data management will be shared between both IT and Business Units.

There will certainly be some challenges such as training and collaboration between IT and business units, interactivity with the tool in such a way that suits the business manager’s needs and objectives, and overall ease of use for non-technical users. However, I think Attunity is right in stride with this new release.
