Paxata Partners with Carahsoft to Expand Big Data Analytics in Public Sector

Paxata is partnering with Carahsoft Technology Corp, a  government IT solutions provider, to bring the Paxata Adaptive Data Preparation application and platform to government agencies  to help them automate, collaborate and govern data integration, data quality and the enrichment process.

The Paxata Adaptive Data Preparation solution is built to support data preparation at scale and is available in a multi-tenant cloud service as well as an on-premise deployment, according to Paxata.

"Paxata fills a critical technology gap between the industry-leading data management capabilities provided by Cloudera and innovative data visualization functionality pioneered by Tableau," said Michael Shrader, vice president, Intelligence and Innovative Solutions, at Carahsoft. "Our customers now have a modern business intelligence stack, and we are thrilled to have Paxata's self-service data preparation in our emerging technology portfolio."

 As a top-ranked GSA Schedule Contract holder, Carahsoft serves as the master government aggregator for many of its technology vendors, supporting an extensive ecosystem of software manufacturers, value-added resellers, system integrators, and consulting partners committed to helping government agencies select and implement solutions.

Carahsoft joins existing Paxata government partner In-Q-Tel, a not-for-profit strategic investment firm that works to identify, adapt, and deliver innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the U.S. intelligence community. Carahsoft will work within the program to address the increase in demand from state, local and federal government organizations for solutions that address data preparation at scale.

“Our focus is to transform the lives of business analysts who need to accelerate data-driven decisions by simplifying how they combine, clean and get data ready for analytics, regardless of use case," said Chris Maddox, co-founder and vice president of sales and business development at Paxata. "We are pleased to join forces with Carahsoft to deliver that freedom to our joint customers."
