TORONTO – Tuesday, March 8, 2016 – Today, Next Pathway, North America’s leading Big Data technology firm, is proud to launch its Big Data Management Platform, Cornerstone™. Cornerstone is a metadata-driven ingestion product that provides a platform to fully automate the ingestion of vast amounts of data.
Cornerstone employs a self-service model that allows data producers to automatically ingest data into an Enterprise Data Lake (EDL). Data consumers can then leverage the platform’s capabilities to perform exploratory analytics and modeling on EDL data sets as well as external data.
Cornerstone’s ingestion framework enables data producers to specify metadata from a standardized metadata model. The framework then automatically ingests this data into the EDL, without having to manually develop an ingestion workflow for each feed. Cornerstone can process multiple files in parallel; allowing users to ingest thousands of files in a matter of a few hours.
“Our clients that have implemented Cornerstone have reaped the benefits of ingesting thousands of files.”, says Chetan Mathur, CEO of Next Pathway. “Cornerstone can integrate into existing scheduling and monitoring processes and can be tailored to every client’s specific needs; we believe Cornerstone is a revolutionary product, there is nothing like this on the market today.”, added Mathur.
Core capabilities of Cornerstone include:
- Metadata-driven Ingestion Framework
- Support for Multiple File Types
- Data Lineage Management
- Semantic Lineage Management
- Access-control Security
- Workflow Re-startability
