MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the data virtualization platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Denodo Technologies with the 2013 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. Denodo's integrated data virtualization platform is capable of integrating diverse data and unstructured information and delivering real-time business information in easily interpreted data services formats for applications, business intelligence tools and directly to end users. Several innovations in the Denodo Platform enable broad data acquisition, scalable high performance, flexible transformation and agile delivery of data services. Frost & Sullivan's award report can be downloaded at www.denodo.com and is also available to Frost customers on our website.
Denodo provides several connectors to discover and acquire structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data from a diverse set of sources, including enterprise applications, databases, big data, Web data, cloud, social media and unstructured documents. The Denodo platform preserves the native format of the data, including both relational and non-relational, unlike competing solutions that flatten data into relational formats and re-convert into the source format when needed. The Denodo platform's strong core is also able to store the data's source format.
Data virtualization exposes these sources as virtual data objects that create additional virtual data services by transforming and combining them in real-time, with several query optimization, in-memory and caching techniques, in addition leveraging built-in and external batch integration and data quality tools. Another noteworthy innovation in the Denodo data virtualization platform is its ability to publish data in various formats, such as customized SQL views, Web services and widgets. The unique RESTful linked data services delivery format allows users to search or browse data assets the way they would browse the Web, and then switch over to a familiar query paradigm.
"The key highlight of Denodo's technology is its RESTful linked data services that facilitate the connected agile development of applications for cloud, mobile, and Web users," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Debarun Guha Thakurta. "The Representational State Transfer (REST)-compliant application programming interface is capable of exposing data assets as a unique, uniform resource identifier, which can be accessed through queries, search and browsing, and by utilizing standard interfaces, Web protocols and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) verbs. This is offered in addition to other more traditional formats such as Structured Query Language (SQL) and Web services for Service Oriented Architectures (SOA)."
The Denodo Platform is an independent integration server that runs several server components on any hardware or operating system that is capable of running Java Runtime Environment (JRE)-based applications. Additionally, it provides several design-time and web-based tools for modeling, monitoring and governing data services. It is also equipped with a set of open-source components such as Apache Tomcat, Apache Derby and Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The system's innovative virtual data layer is capable of establishing strong data relationships and transformations; it uses an integrated execution and modeling environment to normalize and transform data and deliver information to other systems or users.
The Denodo Platform also enables automatic query optimization capabilities by virtue of latency balancing, transparent manual control, and modular clustered scalability. The solution offers minimal replication of data, which saves development and processing time as well as effort. For developers, the solution eliminates the task of developing codes to publish virtual databases and Web services.
The agile processing and delivery of valuable insights, through analytics, equips enterprises with real-time information, which facilitates successful decision-making. This, in turn, helps organizations respond, in real time, to rapidly changing business scenarios.
The return on investment from the Denodo Platform is rapid, as it is a fully automated solution. Apart from the huge savings on training, the platform's superior efficiency helps reduce the workforce considerably, compared to traditional systems that rely on manual operation. The Denodo data virtualization platform also provides 60 percent faster access to data and time required to make changes. This helps enterprises respond to changing scenarios with optimum agility.
"With enterprises still finding it challenging to easily handle and integrate enormous volumes and highly complex data for different application areas, the Denodo data virtualization platform has emerged as a vital tool," noted Debarun. "Denodo Technologies keenly focuses on delivering best-in-class solutions, making it the solution of choice among enterprises across the data virtualization space."
Each year, Frost & Sullivan identifies and presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.

Logs are continuous digital records of events generated by all components of your software stack – and they’re everywhere – your networks, servers, applications, containers and cloud infrastructure just to name a few. The data logs provide are like an X-ray for your IT infrastructure. Without logs, this lack of visibility creates operational challenges for managing modern applications that drive today’s digital businesses.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
