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.

Newark, NJ (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

Gordon Thomas, an inventive problem-solver whose creations – from medical devices, to weapons sensors, to optical communications fiber – are remarkable for their diversity as well as their ingenuity and practicality, has been named a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.

Thomas, a professor of physics, joins just over 400 inventors from more than 150 research universities, government agencies and non-profit research institutions who, in the words of the Academy, “have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.”

His growing portfolio of inventions includes 23 issued and pending patents.

“I’m delighted by this honor mostly for the light it shines on the tremendous work that goes on at NJIT in developing intellectual property,” notes Thomas. “As an institution, we stand out not only for the work our professors do in this arena, but for the determined way we engage our graduate and undergraduate students in project-focused science and engineering that leads to important innovations, both big and small.”

His describes the hunt for ideas as simple and straightforward: “I speak to people with a problem and determine what’s needed.” He recently earned one of his two Thomas Edison Patent Awards for developing such a problem-solving device, an implantable, wireless ‘Smart Shunt’ to monitor and regulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in people with hydrocephalus, or fluid build-up in the brain.

“When someone I knew presented this problem to me a few years ago – a grandfather concerned about his infant granddaughter – the standard method in use at the time had been developed in the 1950s. It essentially involved drilling a hole in the skull and installing a tube,” he recounts. His device, backed by a $ 3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health and developed in a partnership with the Harvard Medical School and Vivonics, Inc., will soon be tested in animal trials in Cambridge, Mass.

In collaboration with Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, he invented a patent-pending device known as a tonometer to detect and monitor people with glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness.

Thomas, a physicist by training, discovered a relish for technical challenges early in his career while he was engaged in basic research at Bell Labs. He earned his first patent there after a manager presented him with a frustrating problem: how to prevent moisture from seeping into optical fibers and hindering the transmission of data and phone signals.

“The torch used in softening the fiber was causing hydrogen and oxygen to combine and form water. We needed to come up with a dry process, and we succeeded by changing one critical step, using an oxygen plasma torch that keeps hydrogen out,” he recounts of his solution – a fabrication method for ultra-pure fiber – that is now routinely used in optical communications.

“I really liked working on that project and it made a big impression on me,” he says. “It was incredibly fun and I believed my accomplishment to be more useful than what I was doing in basic research, while I continue to find pure research both interesting and important.”

He hastens to add that he “would never have come up with any of these ideas by myself.”

“Inventors almost never work alone,” notes Thomas, who said he collaborates with a core “triumvirate” of Reginald Farrow, a research professor of physics and also a distinguished inventor, and Alokik Kanwal, a research assistant professor. The three routinely vet, critique and improve one another’s ideas until they begin to resemble something workable. “Alokik and Reggie are experts in nanofabrication, which is the frontier of device fabrication.”

Their creative team typically includes an array of talented graduate and undergraduates students.

“I require all of my physics students to do demonstrations of their work in class and always ask them to think about inventions that could arise from it. Outside of class, we run a biophysics research program each semester and over the summer that prompts motivated students to become innovators and researchers. Often, they’re working closely with me on my projects,” he says, adding, “And we have fun. That’s essential.”

He relishes his students’ triumphs, some of them prominent. Early in his career, he served as the thesis advisor for a Ph.D. student devising a process for stilling the movement of electrons in metals used as insulators. This past summer, he looked on proudly as his advisee, Thomas Rosenbaum, was installed as the ninth president of the California Institute of Technology. Next March, Thomas will be back at Caltech, which is hosting the induction ceremony for the 2014 Fellows.

Among Thomas’s other notable inventions are a produce-recognition system for NCR’s grocery check-out counters, a flexible sensor circuit to help prevent explosions that won him a second Edison award, and a related, patent-pending device for an ultra-sensitive sensor to measure and record vibrations which the military can use for situational awareness of perimeter security. The Army Research and Development Engineering Center at Picatinny Arsenal, Dover, oversees this effort and provides support.

The author of 150 peer-reviewed articles on basic physics, Thomas is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society.

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 03, 2012

Business analytics pioneer Kognitio today announced the appointment of long-time business intelligence professional Steve Millard as the companys President and Chief Executive Officer.

Kognitio said Millard was promoted from his post as Chief Operating Officer, several months after initially joining as Senior Vice President of North American sales from IBM, where he was responsible for global data warehouse sales. He previously held executive management positions at Greenplum, which was acquired by EMC, and Netezza, where he was the founding Vice President of sales, prior to that companys IPO in 2007. He was also Vice President of worldwide strategic partnerships at Teradata, and a sales director for DATAllegro, which was acquired by Microsoft. Millard has more than 25 years of expertise in growing and leading both Fortune 100 and start-up companies in the Big Data and business analytics space.

Steve understands the data analytics market better than virtually anyone Ive met, said Geoffrey Squire, OBE, the chairman of the Kognitio Board of Directors. He not only knows the technology, but how it can make companies more productive and profitable. Since joining Kognitio, Steve has built out a North American sales force, and has led a company-wide go-to-market strategy which positions us well for the future.

As COO, Millard has led a renewed emphasis on the Kognitio Analytical Platform and on the Kognitio Cloud, the companys ready-to-use implementation, which enables companies to obtain the insight they need in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional installations. He succeeds Roger Llewellyn, who will remain on the Kognitio board as a non-executive director.

Cloud computing has changed the possibilities for companies of all sizes, including the use of business analytics, Millard said. The cost barriers to entry have been slashed, meaning more firms can use this technology to get the insight they need, at a fraction of the cost from just several years ago. Kognitio has repeatedly been a pioneer and leader in business intelligence throughout the years, and I intend to continue that track record of innovation, as well as working to significantly expand our presence throughout North America and Europe.
