Today, Precisely announced at AWS re:Invent, that its Data Integrity Suite has achieved the Amazon Redshift Service Ready designation. It allows customers to replicate data from on-premises systems to AWS in near real-time.
According to Eric Yau, Chief Operating Officer at Precisely, “As companies increasingly look to move to hybrid and cloud-first environments, it’s essential that issues with data trust are addressed before they impact downstream business systems and analytics.
“We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with AWS and enable customers to take crucial steps on their journey to data integrity – without requiring them to move data from AWS into other environments.”
What is the Precisely Data Integrity Suite?
The Precisely Data Integrity Suite is a set of seven interoperable services:
- Data integration
- Data quality
- Geo addressing
- Data governance
- Data observability
- Spatial analytics
- Data enrichment.
Interoperability comes because the seven services all sit on the same data platform and share a common data catalog. Importantly, they also have a common user interface. This makes it easier for users to take advantage of all the services rather than having to learn each one separately.
Moving data between the services enables users to improve data integrity. Each service allows for data to be cleaned and enhanced. The result is richer data that users can trust.
Replicating the data in near real-time also allows organisations to get maximum value from their data. It allows them to consume it in other applications, such as Amazon Redshift, where it can feed into analytics, machine learning and AI.
Enterprise Times: What does this mean?
This is the second announcement from Precisely at AWS re:Invent this week. It showcases the close relationship between the two vendors. It means that customers can move their data easily to AWS Redshift, without having to transition it to other environments. Precisely adds Redshift to a growing list of integrations that already includes Snowflake, Google BigQuery, and others.
More important, than that relationship, is the benefit to customers. Precisely and AWS are not only making it easy to create trusted data and then use that, but they are also making it easy to move data into the cloud.
