Attivio Platform Certified to Provide Agile Data Access for Cloudera Enterprise

Attivio Eases Transition to Hadoop and the Modern Data Architecture by Finding and Unifying All Enterprise Data

NEWTON, Mass., September 13, 2016 – Attivio, the Data Dexterity Company™, today announced a major step in helping enterprises achieve a true modern data architecture by completing the Cloudera ISV Certification program for its full platform to provide agile data access for Cloudera Enterprise. Cloudera Enterprise is the leading data management and analytics platform built on Apache Hadoop.

Cloudera Enterprise provides the underpinnings for the modern data architecture and enables organizations to easily create data-driven applications and drive agile analytics. With the full Attivio platform and Attivio Semantic Data Catalog certified on Cloudera, users can now easily and securely find and unify structured and unstructured data inside and outside of Hadoop.

“Many of our clients, especially those in financial services, have started a transition to the modern data architecture, and Hadoop is their central technology,” said Attivio CEO Stephen Baker. “Cloudera and Attivio together offer unparalleled security and control around data. This enables enterprises to move into a data-driven future in which all data, structured and unstructured, can be used in nearly every decision.”

“Attivio provides an important complement to Cloudera Enterprise, with the ability to quickly find and unify data,” said Tim Stevens, vice president of Corporate and Business Development of Cloudera. “Together we will help organizations get more value from their information, by offering agile data management solutions that power ad hoc analytics.”

The Attivio Semantic Data Catalog indexes all enterprise data, no matter where it is within the organization. Attivio’s advanced contextual enrichment and text analytics capabilities enable organizations to unify their unstructured information, such as emails, documents, social posts, and log files, with their structured data to make data-driven decisions based on a comprehensive view of their business.

This virtual unification of data sources helps enterprises solve the legacy data issue that they often face when modernizing their data stacks. Instead of turning Hadoop into another data silo, Attivio enables enterprises to understand all of their data, modern and legacy, through a single viewpoint.

Cloudera provides the centralized management and robust support necessary to operate Hadoop effectively as a mission-critical piece of the technology infrastructure. What’s more, Cloudera differentiates itself through the completeness of its systems management, data security and data governance, making it perfect for enterprise environments. 

The ability to understand and analyze text-based information at scale and to correlate that unstructured content with structured data sources are major drivers of Attivio’s governance, risk and compliance solutions, including anti-money laundering and eCommunications Surveillance. Forrester Research named Attivio a leader in its report, The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Text Analytics Platforms, Q2 2016.
