Paxata Ecosystem Delivers Data-Lake-in-the-Cloud Solution Powered by AWS

Paxata, the enterprise-grade self-service data preparation platform provider, announced native push/pull seamless connectivity options to and from Amazon Web Services (AWS) offerings including Amazon Redshift data warehouse and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). To develop the connectors, which allow customers to build out their data-lake-in-the-cloud solution to get insights faster and more cost-effectively, Paxata partnered with leading consulting firm, Slalom.

Recognizing that speed, agility, and scale would be at the center of next generation information management strategies and architectures, Paxata optimized its self-service platform on AWS to rethink data management and governance by putting context first and subject matter experts in the driver seat of data shaping. By leveraging machine learning, Paxata enables analysts to speed up and improve data aggregation and shaping. Paxata’s parallel distributed processing architecture leverages the distributed and elastic capabilities of AWS for variable, large scale data workloads. Its work with AWS and Slalom positions Paxata to address any organization’s data-lake-in-the-cloud strategy and architecture.

Customers want to manage data across an increasing number of distributed sources. Leveraging the elasticity and flexibility of the cloud, there is an opportunity for collaborators to innovate with how data is prepared and accessed by business and IT users,” said Ken Chestnut, Global Segment Lead, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Paxata, working with Slalom, is delivering an innovative data preparation experience with AWS services, like Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift.”

Slalom is a partner within the Paxata Transform program, which allows partners in the ecosystem to leverage Paxata’s open platform development environment to build value-added services, including high-speed connectors for import and export of data from popular source systems and business applications.

As a certified Solution Provider Amazon partner, we have deep expertise in configuring and utilizing Amazon services such as Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift to create cloud-based, next generation data management solutions,” said Markus Sprenger Practice Area Lead from Slalom Consulting. “This data-lake-in-the-cloud solution has gained major traction with our clients, and we’ve partnered with Paxata to bring their self-service data preparation capabilities to the solution stack for the Amazon customer base.”

Paxata delivers a turnkey data preparation SaaS offering powered by AWS. Paxata’s scale-out, elastic architecture enables customers to truly leverage the cost-effective power of AWS.

We are excited to expand our self-service, enterprise-grade modern data architecture with new support for Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift,” said Rik Tamm-Daniels, Vice President of Technology and Partnerships at Paxata. “Being able to deliver this solution on AWS with our strategic cloud integration partner Slalom means that AWS customers can take better advantage of Paxata’s industry-leading ease of use, scale, security and governance.”
