Incorta 4.6 Platform Release Makes Cloud Data Lakes Analytics-Ready
The latest version of Incorta’s unified data analytics platform sets a new standard for analytics on cloud data lake storage with support for ADLS Gen 2 and AWS S3, 30x faster Direct Data Mapping, and user experience enhancements at every stage of the data workflow
SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 6, 2020—Incorta, the industry’s only Unified Data Analytics Platform powered by Direct Data Mapping, today announced the latest version of its platform, Incorta 4.6. With this release, Incorta introduces new features, capabilities, and performance enhancements that double down on its commitment to bringing data engineers, data scientists, and data analysts together on a single platform. Specifically, Incorta 4.6—the “cloud data lake release”—enables seamless integration and support for ADLS Gen2 and AWS S3 cloud storage technologies, giving companies a powerful new way to (1) provide data constituents with ready access to data that is currently locked up in cloud data lakes, and (2) bring new data into cloud data lake storage in an open standard file format (Parquet). With this release, Incorta also continues its tradition of introducing user experience and performance enhancements to all stages of the data workflow, from new data preview and notebook capabilities to dark mode, and parts of Incorta’s Direct Data Mapping engine now running up to 30 times faster.
“Today’s CIOs are in a race against the clock. The amount of data flowing into organizations is growing exponentially, and so is the demand for access to it. Trying to get ahead of the backlog with incremental improvements on existing approaches and technologies alone is a futile task. It’s like trying to supply water to New York City with a garden hose—you’ll just keep falling further and further behind every day,” said Matthew Halliday, co-founder and VP of Product at Incorta. “What’s needed is a fundamentally new approach—and that’s exactly why companies like Northern Trust, Shutterfly, Broadcom, and others rely on Incorta’s Unified Data Analytics Platform.”
Traditional approaches to managing data and extracting business insights are highly fragmented, requiring people at every stage of the workflow to operate in separate environments, moving copies of the data back and forth between different tools that rarely speak the same language. As a result, the vast majority of companies today are stuck in a slow, costly, and error-prone cycle that prevents individuals and teams from getting what they need, when they need it, and makes it hard to trust the data. Incorta is on a mission to change all of that with a platform that is built with open standards and delivers a true unified data experience, no matter where an organization’s data resides.
"We are not in the business of recommending specific technology platforms, but Incorta is so different from everything else out there today that we are passionate about educating our customers on how the platform will add value to their business,” said Lisa David, Partner at eCapital Advisors. “Our team is solving data problems faster, delivering richer and more timely investment insights to clients, and even creating entirely new products and services that were inconceivable before we found Incorta.”
The release of Incorta 4.6 comes on the heels of a year of significant momentum for the company. In 2019, Incorta expanded headcount by more than 250% to meet global demand, opening new offices in Dubai, London, and New York City, adding to its locations in Cairo, Chicago, and San Mateo. Most recently, Incorta was honored with a 451 Research Firestarter Award and the TDWI 2019 Best Customer Use Case Award. The company was also named as a leader in Dresner Advisory Services’ 2020 Analytical Data Infrastructure Market Study, beating out all three of the top cloud vendors: Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, and being named #1 in sales and service.
