Correction: Podium Data and Fusion Alliance Partner to Deliver Data Lake Management Solutions to Enterprises

Alliance will help companies more quickly and effectively leverage the power of big data

LOWELL, Mass., and INDIANAPOLIS, March 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- [In a release with this same headline yesterday, please note this version deletes a paragraph.]

Podium Data, maker of the leading data lake management platform, and Fusion Alliance, an enterprise information technology solution provider, have joined forces to help large companies build, deploy and manage data lakes, thereby reducing the time-to-answer from data-driven insights from three months to a couple of days. These data lakes are transforming how organizations are delivering actionable data to internal consumers through self-serve data marketplaces. The business users are in turn deriving real and immediate value for their businesses.

With Podium Data’s technology, Fusion Alliance can deploy a data lake for a customer in a few weeks. Within a day of deployment, business users at the customer location will have self-service, on-demand access to data through the secure, enterprise data lake marketplace. This provides immediate return-on-investment (ROI), as employees can use that data to bring more analytic insights, agility and innovation to critical business decisions.

“With the recent launch of version 3.0 of the Podium Data Lake Management Platform, we are delivering a mature, production-ready platform. Our partnership with Fusion Alliance will help us expand our distribution channel by working with such an experienced solution provider organization,” said Paul Barth, CEO, Podium Data. “Our first projects have gone very smoothly and proven that customers can start realizing the value of their data lake immediately when it goes live.”

Fusion Alliance helps clients achieve competitive advantage by using the leverage of data and analytics. That mission focus drives the company to stay on top of the best products, architectures, and methods to take time out of the equation, while maximizing ROI.

“With the Podium Data platform, our clients can rapidly transform their data lake project into a ‘data marketplace,’ where knowledge workers and other data consumers can shop for curated content that fuels their quest for insight,” said Mark Johnson, executive data leader, Fusion Alliance. “We are excited about the value proposition created as the result of our partnership with Podium Data. It enables us to significantly compress the time-to-value for our clients who are leveraging Hadoop to broaden and deepen customer and market insight through data and analytics.” 

Using Fusion and Podium Data, organizations can:

-       Deliver new data to the business 25 times faster,

-       Eliminate 40 percent of the cost for data prep and delivery,

-       Enable data analysts and other business teams to complete 30 times more analytics projects, using the same resources.
