TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 26, 2014) - Adastra Corporation is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Ataccama Software, provider of cutting-edge Data Quality, MDM, and Big Data technology. Ataccama is a cornerstone of the technology stack being offered as part of Adastra's Big Data Test Drive, which will enable organizations to prove the value of a Big Data use case specific to their needs - an important step forward in any Big Data journey.
Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Adastra is an expert provider of Big Data, data warehousing, business intelligence, master data management, and data integration services. With 20 years' experience in a wide variety of industries and a client base that spans the world, Adastra knows that businesses are looking to leverage the true value of data assets. As data volume and complexity continue to accelerate, Adastra seeks out technologies and solutions that will help organizations achieve their Big Data goals.
Like Adastra, Ataccama is part of Adastra Group, and has been focused on developing software for data quality, master data management and data governance since 2007. A natural extension of the company's focus on improving business operations through better quality data and more effective data management is the Big Data platform designed to work with Hadoop.
"Hadoop is a great place to put large amounts of data, but Ataccama provides an effective way to apply business rules to give meaning to that data," said Darren Edery, CEO of Adastra Canada. "This will be what will divide Big Data hype from actual business value. Adastra's ability to deliver this meaningful content to our customers depends on partnerships with technology leaders like Ataccama."
"Big Data presents a tremendous opportunity; however, for many reasons that include technical challenges, not every organization is equipped to make the most of it," said Michal Klaus, CEO of Ataccama. "In an environment such as this, we need people who understand what businesses need, how to profile and understand the data, and who can apply their knowledge by applying the right technology. I cannot think of a better partner in this regard than Adastra."
Adastra's Big Data Test Drive Program applies the IM business savvy of Adastra alongside the power of Ataccama's rule-based engine to deliver meaningful insight on Big Data assets.
