Infoworks Announces DataFoundry v3.0

Infoworks.io, the leader in Enterprise Data Operations and Orchestration (EDO2) systems, today at Strata Data Conference announced DataFoundry v3.0, which extends the supported list of distributed computing and storage platforms to include Microsoft Azure Databricks, and further enhances DataFoundry’s seamless support for hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments.

Infoworks DataFoundry v3.0, represents a significant evolution of Infoworks’ highly-automated EDO2 system that is used by some the world’s largest enterprises to achieve unprecedented levels of analytics agility. Extending DataFoundry to run on Microsoft Azure Databricks provides businesses with the ability to run on ephemeral clusters, delivering compute resources on-demand and reducing the need for fixed and costly infrastructure. DataFoundry also dramatically reduces the time and skill level needed to launch analytics use cases by providing a no-code automated environment.

The company also announced today a partnership with Databricks and availability on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace to streamline customers’ journeys to data-driven business transformation in the cloud. Strata Data attendees are encouraged to learn more and are welcome to visit Infoworks at booth #931 during the conference.

“Competing and winning in an increasingly digital world requires companies to harness their data to transform customer experience, business operations, and decision processes – a very complex proposition for most enterprises,” said Amar Arsikere, chief product officer, CTO and co-founder at Infoworks. “DataFoundry simplifies the task of data operations and orchestration by automating much of the work, integrating all elements of the solution, and providing a layer of abstraction away from the complexities of underlying infrastructure. This enables our customers to operate data and analytics programs at scale and unleash the real power of data.”
