GoodData Launches Foundational Platform to Establish Data as a Service

GoodData, a leading global analytics company, is releasing a new cloud-native analytics platform offering, GoodData.CloudNative (GoodData.CN), representing step one in the definition and implementation of the new Data as a Service (DaaS) category and ecosystem.

DaaS, as a new model, ushers in a modern era of open, API-first, cloud-based, and real-time analytics, according to the vendor.

“If you look at the transformation going on in the market right now, DaaS is the logical next step. DaaS will change the way analytics is done at a fundamental level,” said GoodData founder and CEO Roman Stanek. “Companies have been overspending and seeing little return for more than a decade. The time for experimentation with analytics is over and with the introduction of Data as a Service, and the rise of new platforms like the one we’re launching today, we can unlock an entire new era of analytics.”

As a first step in the introduction of the DaaS category, GoodData today launched its new core platform GoodData.CN, and the benefits include:

  • Modern, developer-friendly framework: GoodData.CN allows users to deploy analytics based on the most modern framework available — including Docker, Kubernetes, etc. This developer-centric, API-first build delivers performance, UI flexibility, and efficiency benefits across the board.
  • Deployment flexibility: The ability to deploy with any cloud gives developers real options and eliminates the need to move or copy data. This reduces costs, improves efficiency, and enables real-time analytics by reducing latency.
  • Compliance and security: Allowing for on-premise options gives customers the freedom to choose deployment and implementation options that best support their business requirements with GoodData’s existing best-in-class security practices.

GoodData is first releasing a Community Edition to give all developers the opportunity to deploy, evaluate, and test the GoodData.CN platform at no cost.

Community Edition is free for all non-production use and allows for unlimited data volume, unlimited number of users, and free community support via an all-in-one Docker image. From there, users can scale to the Freemium, Growth, and Enterprise offerings for increased customer support, production deployments, and customizable capabilities.
