Research Triangle Park, NC – January 29, 2020 – Zaloni, today announced the availability of the Zaloni Data Platform in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. Zaloni customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.
Zaloni offers the leading end-to-end data management software for accelerating analytics value by improving every step of the data operations supply chain. We enable enterprises to realize their data’s untapped potential through an extensible platform that catalogs, controls and provides self-service consumption across on-premises and cloud data silos.
“Most of our customers are making the move to cloud, and many are choosing Azure as their preferred cloud platform because of the cost-effective data storage and processing,” said Susan Cook, CEO of Zaloni. “With Zaloni, sophisticated enterprises can achieve business and analytics success while providing the controls and transparency needed across the ever-increasing size and complexity of today’s data challenges.”
Zaloni enables hybrid data environments within the broader Microsoft ecosystem by seamlessly integrating with Azure and Microsoft SQL Server to provide best-in-class data management and governance with the flexibility to keep data on-premises and in the cloud.
Zaloni’s availability in Azure Marketplace makes it easy for companies to deploy, operate, and scale their data environments with pay-as-you-go pricing and provides:
“Through Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers around the world can easily find, buy, and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimized to run on Azure,” said Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. “We’re happy to welcome Zaloni to the growing Azure Marketplace ecosystem.”
The Azure Marketplace is an online market for buying and selling cloud solutions certified to run on Azure. The Azure Marketplace helps connect companies seeking innovative, cloud-based solutions with partners who have developed solutions that are ready to use.
In addition to availability in the Azure Marketplace, Zaloni has announced the latest release of the Zaloni Data Platform, v5.2. The release expands upon data cataloging and consumption features, making it easy for data analysts, scientists and business users to access, prepare and provision data in a secure and governed way.
Previously, Zaloni expanded the data catalog beyond the data lake to include data from relational data sources in both cloud and on-premises environments, helping companies conquer their data sprawl challenges. In v5.2, users can easily catalog data from any relational database and then ingest that data into a data lake (on-premise or cloud) in just a few simple clicks.
This feature allows users to catalog data wherever it resides and then take action upon the data directly within the data catalog, reducing reliance on IT. In addition to ingestion, users can provision the data to a target destination of their choice. Once data is ingested, an entity is created and lineage is tracked, providing traceability and improving confidence.
Zaloni’s unique approach for end consumers to provision trusted data in an intuitive shopping cart interface is a critical capability of its augmented data catalog. In v5.2, Zaloni has expanded data provisioning to include data and custom analytics sandboxes. The analytics sandboxes include the data, tools, and an environment in which data can be analyzed, helping data analysts spend more time on analytics and less time on finding, preparing and provisioning data.
Additionally, Zaloni added the ability for companies to define a “request-approval” workflow in the provisioning process where data consumers are required to request permission from data owners before provisioning the data. This feature provides an added layer of control and governance and easily integrates with ticketing systems, such as ServiceNow.
At Zaloni, we believe in the unrealized power of data. Our data management software provides an augmented catalog that enables self-service data enrichment and consumption. We work with the world’s leading companies, delivering exceptional data governance built on an extensible, machine-learning platform that both improves and safeguards enterprises’ data assets.
