AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — data.world, the cloud-native enterprise data catalog company, unveiled a broader and deeper level of visibility into enterprise data by announcing its alliance with Precog. By integrating Precog technology into its platform, data.world customers can now integrate with virtually any data source with stronger support for JSON, Parquet, and other semi-structured and file-based data sources.
Precog’s universal no-code data connectivity facilitates integration with various out-of-the box sources. It offers flexible configuration to any ODBC, JDBC, or API source (including semi-structured and file data), allowing querying across all sources and eliminating the limits for data exploration.
“Enterprises struggle to understand and trust the data sources powering their business analyses,” said Jon Loyens, co-founder and chief product officer at data.world. “Adding ways to integrate sources to our catalog introduces more flexibility to our users, increasing their efficiency and making their data catalog truly comprehensive and universally applicable.”
New data.world platform capabilities include:
- Faster, easier extraction of sample, reference, or imported datasets from API-based data sources (such as Salesforce, Hubspot, Shopify, and more), facilitating analysis of all data, without limitation of source, size, or structure.
- Real-time schema information around semi-structured data and files such as JSON, Parquet, CSV, and Excel, coming from sources like Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, MongoDB, Kafka, and Elasticsearch, increasing productivity and reducing complexity to support custom data sources.
“data.world delivers a groundbreaking and agile approach to data catalog, focusing on metadata management, governance, and analytics,” said Jeff Carr, co-founder and chairman at Precog. “We believe this partnership offers a new level of data transformation, allowing users to access all data sources with ease and flexibility.”
