According to a new press release, “Syncsort, the global leader in Big Iron to Big Data software, today announced that it has delivered expanded integration between its industry-leading, high-performance data integration solution, DMX-h, and Cloudera Navigator. This combination uniquely enables data governance practitioners to view detailed data lineage information on enterprise-wide data as well as changes to the data both outside and within the Hadoop cluster. In Syncsort’s recently-published Big Data survey, data governance was ranked among the top priorities when implementing a data lake. Nearly 60% of respondents who are testing or in production with Hadoop or Spark identified ‘including the data lake in data governance initiatives and meeting regulatory compliance mandates’ as a significant challenge.”
The release goes on, “Financial Services and Insurance professionals were twice as likely as respondents from other industries to cite enterprise-wide data governance as one of their most significant challenges. The study also found that data from legacy platforms continues to play a significant role in the data lake, and cloud repositories are gaining popularity as a data source as more organizations leverage the cloud as a deployment platform. In keeping with these findings, and to gain comprehensive insights for data governance initiatives, organizations need visibility into what happens to data as it is collected from diverse data sources such as Mainframe, IBM i, RDBMS and other legacy sources, and where it resides in Hadoop clusters. The new solution provides detailed data lineage from all these data sources and integrates with Cloudera Navigator to provide an unmatched, detailed and comprehensive view.”
