“Enterprises are looking to make better use of all their data, be it in the cloud, a data lake or traditional data warehouse environments,” said Paul Barth, Qlik’s Managing Director of Enterprise Data Management. “Qlik Data Catalyst is expanding to meet customer data management needs wherever their data resides and in whatever form it takes. This brings more order and value to all of an organisation’s data today and in the future.”
Qlik recognises that while many large organisations have the infrastructure and skill set to enable on premise Hadoop clusters, many others are looking for a simpler solution. Qlik Data Catalyst 4.0 now enables customers to organise, curate and catalog data on a single server without a Hadoop cluster, instead leveraging a Linux instance with flat files managed through HSQL. And customers have the comfort of knowing their data will be secure, as these instances will leverage native Linux OS security that is regularly used by Fortune 500 companies for sensitive data and processes.
Additional new core data management capabilities in Qlik Data Catalyst 4.0 include ties to the Amazon cloud, with improved support for transient EMR clusters and S3, along with the ability to publish to RDBMS (including Redshift).
