Infoworks.io, a provider of enterprise data operations and orchestration (EDO2) systems, is being selected by Databricks for its Data Ingestion Network. Databricks selected Infoworks DataFoundry for Databricks’ Data Ingestion Network, an ecosystem of data integrations launched today featuring partner solutions for the Databricks Unified Data Analytics Platform.
Infoworks is one of a select group of launch partners included in the Databricks Ingestion Network and offers a complete, automated, end-to-end software platform for data operations and orchestration that natively leverages the powerful capabilities of Databricks and Apache Spark.
As a first step towards successful analytics on Databricks, customers need to onboard their data into Delta Lake and establish a robust data foundation. Customers face a number of challenges in onboarding data into Delta Lake, such as ingesting data from a wide variety of sources, keeping data synchronized with changes on hundreds to thousands of sources, and cataloging and organizing data for access by analytics applications.
Infoworks DataFoundry is an EDO2 system that enables automated onboarding of data to Databricks and accelerates the creation and ongoing management of enterprise-scale analytics and machine learning projects. DataFoundry’s highly-automated no-code environment that natively integrates with Delta Lake and Databricks Runtime, enables data engineers, data scientists, and data analysts to more efficiently bring all their data into Delta Lake and deliver enterprise-scale analytics.
Infoworks also announced separately today general availability of DataFoundry 3.0 with native Databricks support.
“DataFoundry enables businesses to quickly realize value; we’re seeing customers create and launch a range of projects – from business intelligence and analytics to machine learning and more – in days or weeks, as opposed to months or years,” said Kevin Kennedy, senior vice president, worldwide sales at Infoworks. “We are delighted to build on our partnership with Databricks with the launch of the Databricks Data Ingestion Network to make it easier to deliver these benefits to our joint customers.”
The Infoworks and Databricks partnership (announced in September 2019) leverages the Infoworks DataFoundry EDO2 system to accelerate and streamline digital transformation efforts, enabling cloud analytics productivity and agility by automating development, orchestration and execution of data and analytics projects at scale – from sandbox to production, from ingestion to integration to model-training and deployment, with built-in monitoring, management and governance.
