I am proud to announce that today Nexla has been named as a 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor for Data Fabric in the Data Management report.1
Nexla’s mission has always been to make it easy for enterprises to work with data. When more people can work with data, and bring it into more applications, is when enterprises scale their Data Operations. Getting named a Gartner Cool Vendor for Data Fabric is a solid validation of the technology architecture behind our company’s mission and our product’s innovative capabilities. Data visionaries like Poshmark, Instacart, Freshworks, LiveRamp, Marchex, and other Nexla customers are already using our unified data operations platform to integrate, prepare, transform, and monitor data.
What Makes Nexla a “Cool Vendor”?
Nexla is recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner for the innovative Data Fabric architecture that powers our Unified Data Operations platform that seamlessly brings data integration and data management capabilities together. With this approach, Nexla reduces the dependence of business users, data scientists, and data analysts on data engineering teams by lowering the technical skill barrier to work with data. These data users get ready-to-use, Data as a Product from internal or external sources. When data users are able to quickly consume data products and share within the digital ecosystem, the speed of data-driven transformation increases manyfold.
Nexla Data Fabric is powered by the three fundamental innovations:
- Nexsets: Nexsets are a modern take on the traditional dataset that represents a logical collection of data, encapsulates schema, samples, error management, audit log, and access control all without making a copy of data. These Nexsets are automatically generated by Nexla’s continuous metadata intelligence layer.
- Continuous Metadata Intelligence: Our continuous metadata intelligence layer observes data at a record level, infers metadata from data, and combines that with system metadata to generate a deep understanding of data.
- Universal Connector Architecture: Nexla’s universal connectors don’t suffer from the limitations of the old connector architectures. When these connectors are combined with the abstractions in Nexsets, users get a single interface for all flavors of data flow – ETL, ELT, API Integration, API Proxy and Data-as-a-service.
This single, seamless experience to integrate, transform, and monitor data is game-changing. All the necessary quality-checks and operational monitoring is built into the data products to proactively address any data downtime or data outages.
So that’s what makes our technology Cool.
Nexla is an ideal solution for data teams who want to achieve more with less. If you are intrigued and want to learn more, contact us today for a demo.
