Cazena Named a ‘Cool Vendor’ by Gartner

WALTHAM, MA (April 25, 2016) - Cazena today announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in DBMS, 2016” report. Cazena is one of five vendors recognized in the report, which examines new and innovative products and services in the database management systems market.

The report describes the trends and demand behind big data as a service. “The use of such services can speed up the adoption of analytics in the cloud, address skills shortages within the enterprise, and make it easier to transition from, and integrate with, existing on-premises investments”1 according to the research.

“We are excited to be recognized by Gartner,” said Prat Moghe, founder and CEO of Cazena. “Cazena’s mission is to make cloud-based big data processing easy for enterprises. We believe that being named a ‘Cool Vendor’ validates Cazena’s Big Data as a Service as the first plug and play, cloud-based analytical platform that securely integrates with enterprise infrastructure out of the box.”

Cazena provides on-demand cloud data marts and data lakes to process any analytical workload. Its unique architecture uses a secure big data gateway to connect cloud infrastructure to enterprise data sources and analytic tools without disrupting data flow or requiring a big development project.
