An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

In all the talk surrounding big data, data lakes and data science, it can be easy to forget that most of an enterprises’ most critical data exist in legacy data stores, such as mainframes. As enterprise organizations begin to scale their big data efforts, however, they must liberate that data so that they can integrate it into the modern data pipeline.

Syncsort provides a cross-platform data integration architecture that enables enterprise organizations to free data from these legacy data stores, and then integrate and enrich it with modern data sets stored in data lakes. Moreover, they maintain full data lineage, so they can help organizations understand where data originated and any transformations it had along the way — an essential governance capability.

They provide a comprehensive and integrated data management platform that delivers a unified user experience for the data integration and data quality pipeline, but allow organizations to use only those elements which meet their needs. The result is a flexible cross-platform approach that enables organizations to take data from the cloud, from modern on-premises data stores and legacy data sources and use it wherever and whenever they need it.
