Your Big Data engine to prepare data for analytics and AI

Cornerstone is a fully automated, metadata-driven data platform automating the ingestion, technical standardization, security, metadata capture and lineage of data into Big Data environments or the Cloud.

Cornerstone removes the need to manually code or write “ETLs” to move data. Enabling users to ingest all types of structured and unstructured data in batch, streaming and direct-to-database methods; and land the data in various target formats – entirely driven by metadata.

Through its self-service model, Cornerstone greatly accelerates the time to market for data consumption, without a single line of code being written.

Whether just starting a Big Data journey, migrating from an enterprise data warehouse, merging siloed data stores, or trying to get a 360-degree view of your customer, Cornerstone can get you there, fast.
