ASG Technologies Enhances Its Data Intelligence Solution with Additional Big Data and Cloud Analyzers

Sponsored by Businesswire

, a trusted provider of proven solutions for information
access, management and control, today announced new analyzer
capabilities to its Data Intelligence solution. Leveraging ASG’s
Intelligent Data Analyzer framework, which makes it easy for ASG and
partners to rapidly build analyzers using an API-driven approach, the
new analyzers will enhance the solution by automating metadata and data
discovery for pervasive big data and cloud technologies.

In today’s digitally-driven world, business strategies are tightly
linked to a company’s data strategies, as evidenced by the number of Chief
Data Officers (CDO) quadrupling
from 2014 to 2018. However, only 50
percent of CDOs have solutions in place to support data inventory,
according to a recent
ASG survey

To effectively understand the data they possess, organizations must be
able to reliably discover and understand where data originates and how
it flows across the data estate, spanning legacy and modern
technologies. ASG’s Data Intelligence helps CDOs mitigate risk and
ensure regulatory compliance through policy-driven data governance. The
solution also enables businesses to make better and faster decisions
through self-service analytics. The new cloud and big data analyzers
help businesses make sense of – and gain value from – the growing number
of data technologies across the hybrid enterprise.

ASG’s Data Intelligence can automatically identify data elements from
more than 230 commonly-used sources (including data stores, files, ETL
tools, BI tools, EA tools and source code) across the enterprise to
understand the breadth and depth of data managed throughout the
organization. With the solution’s new capabilities, the library of ASG
Intelligent Data Analyzers has been extended to include:

  • Amazon S3
  • Amazon Redshift
  • Amazon Redshift Spectrum
  • Amazon Snowflake
  • Azure SQL Database
  • Azure SQL Data Warehouse
  • Apache HBase
  • Apache Avro
  • Pivotal GemFire
  • Neo4j Database

“Our goal is to enable our customers and partners to answer three
questions at the center of every data and analytics process: what data
is available, where did it come from and what is the level of trust,”
said Marcus MacNeill, SVP of Product Management, ASG Technologies. “Our
technology is dedicated to helping businesses answer these questions
quickly and confidently, and we’re excited to address the growing market
demand for these big data and cloud sources.”

“ASG’s Data Intelligence is a vital component of our Intelligent Data
Discovery as a Service offering for regulatory compliance, data
governance, application modernization and other use cases,” said Bob
Doyle, Global Data Governance Practice Lead, Accenture. “The
availability of these new big data and cloud analyzers ensures we’re
able to support the growing set of technologies adopted by our clients.”
