Mountain View, Calif. (PRWEB) April 14, 2015

Waterline Data, the automated data discovery for Hadoop company, today announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” based on the March 30, 2015 report titled, “Cool Vendors in Information Governance and MDM, 2015” by Guido De Simoni, Roxane Edjlali, Saul Judah, Bill O’Kane, and Andrew White at Gartner, Inc. The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services in the Information Governance and MDM market. Gartner’s report provides recommendations “for information managers involved in information governance and MDM programs, such as data stewards, storage management leaders, chief technology officers and chief data officers (CDOs):

    Support your data ecosystem for improved context management with agile data-as-a-service platforms.
    Use emerging vendors that specialize in information governance in a big data environment.
    Adopt innovative solutions for socializing and enriching your approach to information governance and MDM by focusing beyond the organization and its known customers and partners.”

“It is a unique honor to be named a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor,’” said Alex Gorelik, founder and CEO of Waterline Data. “Companies are now recognizing that the data lake requires data governance. We’re seeing companies either playing catch up after a few data science projects, or getting ahead of the broader adoption of Hadoop by the business and implementing a business-ready data lake that incorporates key components such as data profiling, data quality, metadata, and a business glossary. We’re focused on helping companies deploy these foundational capabilities across any Hadoop distributions, leveraging our ability to automatically discover extended technical, business, and compliance metadata.”

About Waterline Data

Waterline Data was founded in 2013, and is backed by Menlo Ventures and Sigma West.

Companies that want to open up Hadoop across business units for strategic value creation are creating a data lake to drive business transformation. It’s easy to get data into Hadoop, but it’s not easy to get the right data out of Hadoop to extract business value while staying in compliance. To do so, data architects must be able to quickly catalog data assets, business users must be able to quickly find and understand the data they need, and data governance policies must be adhered to throughout the process.

The inspiration for the name “Waterline” came from the metaphor of the Big Data lake. The idea behind “Waterline” is that data engineers, data scientists, and business analysts should be able to find the best suited and most trusted data without extensive coding and manual exploration – in other words they should be able to “Hadoop above the waterline.” Waterline Data automates the inventory of data assets in the lake, enables business users to find and understand the data through self-service, and enables data governance.

ParStream, the fastest real-time database for big data analytics, announces today the company has been recognized by CRN Magazine as a 2014 Emerging Vendor, immediately following the company’s designation as one of CRN’s Big Data 100 which recognized 100 of the most innovative business analytics companies.

CRN is a top new source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. Members of this years’ list were chosen by CRN editors based on ongoing feedback throughout the year from service providers regarding channel influence, innovation, and business and sales impact. A panel of editors made the final determination from a pool that included online applicants, partner nominations, and editor selections.

ParStream’s Database for Real-time Big Data Analytics was selected for this accolade due to its capability to help businesses gain immediate actionable intelligence into their data in real-time. Most companies are challenged with not being able to analyze their data fast enough for it to be of value. ParStream’s patented technology empowers companies with real-time data analytics to help them make better decisions faster, identify opportunities/threats sooner, and improve customer experiences.

“The real-time economy and the Internet of Things have increased the demand for companies to gain immediate and actionable intelligence from their data.

Being acknowledged by CRN for two esteemed industry lists in such a short amount of time underscores ParStream’s commitment to innovation and customer value proposition.

“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”
