BOSTON, Feb. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Podium Data, Inc., creator of the Podium Data Marketplace, has once again been named to the Constellation ShortList™ under the Data Lake Management category for Q1 2018.

“We are honored once again to be recognized on the Constellation ShortList for Data Lake Management excellence. This recognition is consistent with accolades from our customers who have greatly differentiated themselves with increased business optics and performance orders of magnitude higher across data delivery, cost and speed of deployment – accelerating time-to-answers from months to days.  With one place to go for all data, business-ready information is revealed within a shop-for-data experience that’s on-demand, secure, collaborative and governed,” said Dr. Paul Barth, CEO of Podium Data.

Podium’s exuberant market acceptance is evidence that the data supply chain within organizations is broken. It’s too slow, too costly, and not scalable. Today, data lakes across all industries fail due to a divide within their organizations, and as companies continue to stockpile data from multiple sources, they have lost control of data quality, accessibility and governance.  As a result, little, if any action is taken, fewer benefits are derived from big data projects and what should have been game-changing self-service access to data, dies from irrelevance or unreliability.

“The challenge of managing data lakes has evolved to meet more pragmatic requirements,” said Doug Henschen, VP and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research. “In place of the original vision of a single data lake to rule them all, companies want greater flexibility, with “multi” being the theme. They’re maintaining multiple lakes rather than consolidating, and in some cases they’re adding more lakes to serve different users and needs. They’re also deploying in multiple environments, including private, public, hybrid and multi-cloud scenarios, and on multiple platforms, including Hadoop, Spark, databases and object stores. Leading data lake management solutions have adapted accordingly.”

The Podium Data Marketplace is a stand-out software platform that delivers on the promise of data lakes giving users the self-service convenience they crave while empowering IT to further enrich data assets without compromise.

Constellation Research advises leaders and teams on leveraging disruptive technologies to achieve business model transformation. Products and services named to the list meet the threshold criteria for this category as determined by Constellation Research through client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share and internal research. The Constellation ShortList is frequently updated as market conditions change.
