Barcelona, well known for its architectural masterpieces, is hosting a different type of architect this week – data architects. At this week’s DataWorks Summit in Barcelona, Cazena will be mixing with distinguished data architects along with experts in cloud, big data, Hadoop, analytics, data science, machine learning, and more.
Cazena and Cloudaeon are pleased to announce a partnership that extends the power of Cazena’s cloud-based Big Data as a Service and Cloudaeon’s automated analytics and demand forecasting solutions. The partnership is aimed at helping companies in retail, supply chain and logistics more effectively use data and analytics for strategic activities.
When you deliver product incrementally, in an agile fashion, it is often hard to see, week to week, sprint to sprint, all the great progress made throughout the year. That’s why, at the end of every year, I enjoy looking back at what my teams and company have accomplished the past twelve months. For Cazena it was an exceptional year with triple-digit growth of our customer subscriber base. Behind the curtain, the data paints an interesting picture of what it means to provide this growing customer base with a fully-managed, secure, highly-available big data platform.
We are pleased to announce a new partnership between Cazena and Eden Smith, the leading UK big data consulting and staffing specialist. The companies share a strategic mission of empowering data leaders and accelerating analytic impact. Eden Smith is known for deep market knowledge, strategy expertise and a vetted roster of data and analytics talent, with a specific focus on Chief Data Officers. Cazena’s Big Data as a Service solutions are fully-managed, secured and automated, offering enterprise data lakes, analytics and data science platforms at ½ the cost of alternatives.
It's always great to attend the Strata NYC conference to see what people are working on across the industry. Cazena attended in force this year, with colleagues, partners, customers and friends. We debuted several solution demos, cheered as one of our customers won a notable award and attended sessions. We had a cool booth on the expo floor keeping attendees headache-free with our handy giveaways. Here are my takeaways -- the fun and interesting technical concepts and trends. A few things really stood out this year. As always, there was that one technology that everyone kept asking about.
As Cazena marks the end of our first year post-GA, I am excited that we are seeing over 300% annual growth with our Big Data as a Service. We are seeing interesting patterns across these enterprises.
While the Big Data Hadoop ecosystem has established itself as an production-grade data stack, extracting intelligence from all of this data can also be extremely daunting. Cazena’s VP of Engineering John Piekos discusses the three primary reasons that Cazena’s Data Lake as a Service helps enterprises.
