Denodo has announced that Forrester Research, Inc. has positioned Denodo as a “Leader” in “The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Fabric, Q2 2018” report. According to the report, “Denodo’s customers like its broad and easy-to-use data integration, end-to-end lineage, integrated governance, simplified data modeling capabilities, search, optimized query, and analytical engine.”

Companies embarking on big data initiatives have struggled to provide holistic data across the newer big data and legacy enterprise systems. In this report, Forrester states that such “disparate technology stacks compromise timely, integrated data delivery to business users, customers, and partners.” Data virtualization is a data fabric that integrates the entire enterprise information and delivers it to business users in real time.

Forrester principal analyst and author of the report, Noel Yuhanna wrote, “Denodo’s key strength lies in its unified data fabric platform that integrates all of the key data management components needed to support real-time and dynamic use cases such as real-time analytics, fraud detection, portfolio management, health-care analytics, and IoT analytics.”

Denodo Platform 7.0, announced April 12, offers native support for massive parallel processing (MPP) for dramatically accelerating query processing, and other processing-intensive operations, in big data implementations. This enables organizations to seamlessly integrate Denodo Platform operations with the processing capabilities of engines like Spark, Hive, Impala, and Presto, for unparalleled agility in big data scenarios. The Denodo Platform is available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure marketplaces, for seamless cloud deployment.

“We are proud that Forrester has recognized Denodo as a leader in its 2018 Big Data Fabric Wave,” said Ravi Shankar, chief marketing officer at Denodo. “We think this acknowledgement is a testament to our strong dedication in the data virtualization space, and to the power of Denodo Platform 7.0, with its built-in MPP support and enhanced cloud capabilities, to serve as the next-generation big data fabric. Forrester has awarded Denodo the highest possible scores for road map and vision within the Strategy category.”
