Syncsort to Deliver Solutions Supporting Governance and Customer 360 Initiatives

Syncsort, a global leader in data liberation, integrity and integration solutions for next-generation analytics, today announced new solutions that bring together its industry-leading Big Data integration and Trillium data quality software to address enterprise requirements to support data governance and Customer 360 initiatives in the data lake.

An important development following Syncsort’s acquisition of Trillium Software, the largest in company history, is the new solutions leverage provided by Trillium’s market-leading, independent data quality technology. This announcement takes place on the heels of the company delivering Trillium Precise in March, which provides data enrichment services that uniquely offers organizations a single, accurate, verified and complete customer view in real-time.

“Taking advantage of our expanded product portfolio, we have combined best-of-breed data integration and data profiling technology to address the most common use cases,” said Tendü Yoğurtçu, Chief Technology Officer, Syncsort. “In addition, with Trillium’s highly accurate, independent data quality product, customers are not tied to broad, single vendor data management platforms and their associated costs.”

Enabling Data Governance in the Data Lake

As organizations liberate data from traditional silos across the enterprise and centralize it in data lakes for high-powered analytics, data governance is becoming a top priority, especially in highly regulated industries, such as banking, insurance, financial services and healthcare.

Syncsort has combined the power of Syncsort DMX-h high-performance Big Data integration software to quickly and efficiently access data from any source and load it into the data lake, while using Trillium Discover to profile that data. Customers can now understand the quality of the data in Hadoop or Spark, so they can be confident the data meets their governance criteria, or identify where they need to take action to clean up the data where necessary.

In addition, organizations working with mainframe data can leverage the unique ability of DMX-h to ingest mainframe data into Hadoop in its native format, and work with that data like any other data source. This is a critical capability for preserving data lineage—a key criteria for data governance.

“As part of their data governance initiatives, many of our customers are looking for ways to assess the quality of the data as it is integrated from diverse data sources, including legacy and mainframes, and accessed in data lakes to support next-generation business analytics,” continued Tendü Yoğurtçu. “This process ensures they can trust that data, and that they are targeting the right data to fit the purpose.”

Benefits of the new solution include:

Trusted Customer 360

Many businesses need to leverage all their data to best serve their customers in all their interactions and across all touch points. To do this, they are building data lakes to bring together information from customer interactions housed across multiple data sources, as well as third-party sources, to build a single view of the customer. Syncsort has integrated DMX-h with its Trillium data quality, profiling and enrichment software to speed and simplify this process, and ensure a complete, accurate view of the customer.

“Another priority for many organizations is Customer 360, and we have received strong feedback that our customers not only need a single view of their customers, but it is critical that they can trust the accuracy of that view,” said Keith Kohl, Vice President, Product Management, Syncsort. “The integration of DMX-h with Trillium technology collects information from enterprise-wide sources, including hard-to-access mainframe data, and ensures cleansed, enriched and validated data is available when needed for analytics.”

Highlights of integration benefits include:
