Each of these companies produces and consumes a massive amount of data that is even more valuable when shared among them. Big Data Management helps us consolidate, integrate, govern and secure all data at scale in what we've called an ‘Analytics Hub’ and make it available for everyone to use, to help build out new and better products.”

- Ben Garrett, Director, Enterprise Data Services Architecture and Operations

Kaiser Permanente: “Analytics is central to Kaiser’s business and promoting better health for all. Big Data Management helps us overcome the primary obstacles to analytics which are the ability to access, govern, and trust the data.

KPN: “Big Data Management plays a critical role at KPN as a data-driven company. Big Data Integration breaks down data silos to provide better customer intelligence. Big Data Governance and Quality ensures that our business analysts can be confident with the data they’re using. Additionally, we have very strict laws in Europe around sensitive customer information and require the ability to discover the proliferation of sensitive information. Therefore, we also need Big Data Security that provides a 360-degree view of sensitive data, supported by risk analytics and policy-based protection of data at risk. We are taking a comprehensive approach to Big Data Management at KPN.”
