Information Builders Announces iWay Hadoop Data Manager for Data Lake Creation and Management

Feb 23, 2016

Information Builders, a provider of business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and data integration solutions, announced iWay Hadoop Data Manager, a modern, native approach to Hadoop-based data integration and management that aims to ensure high levels of capability, compatibility, and flexibility.

Many organizations struggle with making Hadoop the centerpiece of their big data strategy because of the cost and knowledge base of developer tools, user interfaces, and professional skills required for the environment. In addition, organizations must ensure Hadoop can extend, reinforce, or replace existing BI and data warehousing strategies and tools, but need clarity on which approach is best.

iWay Hadoop Data Manager provides a simplified, easy-to-use interface to generate portable, reusable code for data integration tasks in Hadoop, including data ingestion, transformation, and cleansing. By eliminating Hadoop coding, it enables a more rapid response to business requirements using less-expensive skill sets.

Modern data integration often requires rapid ingestion of data into a data lake from varied data sources, while minimizing the impact on their performance. iWay Hadoop Data Manager hides the complexity of data ingestion, replacement, and de-duplication using Sqoop, Flume, and Information Builders' iWay Service Manager - without programming.
