According to a recent press release, “Syncsort, the global leader in Big Iron to Big Data software, today announced it has been named to Microsoft’s One Commercial Partner program to support customers’ Microsoft Azure Cloud initiatives. Syncsort’s data integration and data quality solutions efficiently move data of any kind to Azure, transforming it so it’s analytics-ready and improving and maintaining the quality of the data as it’s stored and analyzed in the cloud.”
The release goes on, “The cloud is an overwhelmingly popular option for deploying applications and storing data due to its flexible architecture, low cost and elasticity, but it presents challenges when the data originating from other platforms needs to be archived or integrated. Organizations must move their data, cleanse and transform it so it’s ready for analytics in the cloud. This can be time consuming and, in the case of legacy platforms like mainframes, very complex due to incompatible data formats and storage practices. Once in the cloud, the data must be kept up-to-date and of the highest quality to ensure accurate, trusted analytics on which to base business decisions.”
Tendü Yogurtçu, CTO of Syncsort, commented, “More and more organizations are looking to store data and build, manage and deploy applications in the cloud, but moving data can be complex and ensuring its accuracy can be challenging… Syncsort focuses on simplifying data access, integration and quality for trusted insights in enterprise-wide analytics, irrespective of its source or use case, including the cloud. Achieving co-sell status with Microsoft is a great recognition of how we help support joint customers in their cloud journeys.”
