Apatar Data Integration and Vertica Analytic Database Accelerate Corporate Data Analysis

From: Apatar, Inc.
Published: Sun Aug 10 2008

Apatar, Inc., the leading provider of open source tools for data integration, today announced connectivity to the Vertica Analytic Database, a high-performance, grid-based column-oriented database management system used for analytics and business intelligence. The new connector enables both developers and business users to migrate data between the Vertica Analytic Database and third-party applications without any custom coding and allows for this data to be filtered, validated, and cleansed.

Rapid and accurate analysis across a variety of data sources

According to Gartner, more than 25 percent of critical data in Fortune 1000 companies is inaccurate, incomplete, or duplicated, and three-quarters of large enterprises will make little to no progress towards improving data quality until 2010. While huge amounts of corporate data are scattered across enterprises and becoming outdated too rapidly, the connector for Vertica can help companies synchronize their most critical data before delivering it to decision-makers.

“Businesses are asking more questions against ever-growing volumes of data from multiple sources, so we are excited about our relationship with Apatar,” said Colin Mahony, Senior Director of Business Development for Vertica. “Vertica’s Analytic Database enables companies to store terabytes of information with blazingly fast query response times. With Apatar’s visual designer and integration tools, it becomes extremely easy to extract and load large volumes of data into Vertica quickly for rapid analysis.”

Provide the quality and completeness of information before it’s too late

Prior to entering into the Vertica Analytic Database, data can be filtered, validated, and cleansed using Apatar’s data quality capabilities. Now both Vertica users and administrators can de-duplicate data received from multiple sources, verify e-mail and postal addresses, check customer socio-economic parameters, and more. The ease of “drag-and-drop” integration saves time and allows for these operations to be performed even by non-technicians.

“Most data integration projects fail, after they exceed allocated budgets or cannot be delivered in time, and never get built,” said Renat Khasanshyn, founder and CEO of Apatar. “Combining Vertica’s revolutionary performance and ease of use with Apatar’s visual data quality and integration features, enterprises can accelerate decision-making and provide the quality and completeness of their most critical information timely, before it’s too late.”
