A new press release reports, “MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the Converged Data Platform that fully integrates analytics with operational processes in real time, and Talend, a global leader in cloud and big data integration solutions, today announced they are working closely on a solution to help customers address requirements for the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation. The combined offering from MapR and Talend enables companies to create a governed data lake capable of meeting even the most stringent data storage, inventory, protection, retention, portability, and security requirements mandated by GDPR. Enforceable starting May 2018, GDPR applies to any organization worldwide that collects or processes personal data from EU residents. According to Gartner, by the end of 2018, over 50 percent of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements.”
Ciaran Dynes, senior vice president of products at Talend, commented, “The path toward GDPR compliance does not have to be complicated, but organizations do need to act now… Working with MapR, we are helping customers deliver transparency through proper metadata management practices; establish a collaborative approach to data governance; and modernize their data platform to support data lake development that will ensure full compliance with GDPR.”
The release goes on, “Data lakes are used to centralize enterprise information, including personal data that originates from a variety of sources, such as banks, social media, medical care providers, and more. The combined solution from MapR and Talend enables companies to deploy governed data lakes that address compliance challenges related to: Data classification and lineage; Data capture and integration; Data anonymization; Self-service data curation and certification; Data portability and accessibility.”
