An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

Everybody knows that data scientists are in short supply. That’s why you’d never want them to have to spend their precious time setting up data infrastructure and tooling or working on data integration, data ingestion, wrangling, or configuration tasks.

Cazena takes such chores off the data scientist’s plate with its fully managed big data as a service offering.

Cazena works with different big data technologies, but perhaps the most popular is Cloudera. With Cazena, Cloudera deployment is straightforward and rapid, essentially providing ‘data lake as a service’ ease of use and functionality.

Data scientists can bring their own tools and Cazena will properly configure and integrate them. Behind the scenes, Cazena’s 25+ engineers support the managed environments, with about 80% of the work being fully automated, and 20% handled manually. Over time, Cazena plans for this ratio to be closer to 90%/10%.
