According to a new press release, “Podium Data today announces Podium 3.0, the latest release of Podium Data’s enterprise data lake management platform with dramatically expanded data preparation and publishing capabilities. ‘Podium’s customers have achieved a twenty-five-fold acceleration in delivery of new data to business users – from six months to less than a week – and a 40 percent reduction in data delivery costs by simplifying and speeding up the delivery of data to the business through a secure enterprise-scale data lake,’ says Podium Data CEO Paul Barth.”
The release goes on, “Podium empowers data analysts and other analytically oriented business people to get data to do their jobs on a self-service, on-demand basis quickly and efficiently by eliminating hurdles in the data delivery process. Podium 3.0 now offers a range of improved capabilities over previous versions: self-service publishing, a new intuitive user interface, user-defined datasets, support for Spark and Spark SQL, and operational, security, and governance reporting based on Podium’s metadata. Podium 3.0 enables business users and data analysts to bring new data sources into a secure enterprise lake in less than a week, and build and retrieve custom data sets in an hour.”
It adds, “Podium transforms the publishing process by addressing the needs of both end-user consumers accessing the data and the IT teams responsible for delivering data to the business. With release 3.0, these two critical target audiences can benefit from a new user interface, logical data groupings, expanded and improved metadata-driven reporting, and comprehensive publishing capabilities. Meanwhile, the platform represents transformational innovation in publishing, including replication to other Hadoop clusters, exporting files to a variety of targets, and custom data obfuscation, as well as expanded source capabilities.”
