Gluent Recognized as a 2017 Cool Vendor in Data Management by Gartner

DALLAS, TEXAS – Gluent Inc., developer of revolutionary data virtualization software, announces that on April 28, 2017 it was recognized by Gartner Inc.’s “Cool Vendors in Data Management, 2017” report.

Gartner’s annual report recognizes vendors who focus on “solving the efficient access to data” problem and have embraced different approaches to connecting to, or collecting, data.”…”Digital business is driving innovation in data management through effective access to and processing of data,” the report notes. “Real-time data integration and access to data remain core challenges for data and analytics leaders looking to modernize data management ecosystems.”

Gluent addresses a company’s need to continue to use their existing systems while at the same time taking advantage of new less costly and more scalable, open data format systems such as Hadoop. Gluent Data Platform allows companies to offload data from traditionally expensive and closed RDBMS systems to more cost-effective,  scalable and open platforms on-premise or in the cloud, without the need for costly and brittle ETL workflows. Legacy systems are able to maintain transparent access to data that has been offloaded, data that exists in Hadoop can be presented to other RDBMS systems without the need for ETL development, and new modern analytics tools can access the data directly from Hadoop. Gluent has helped companies implement business-altering changes enabling them to do what was previously considered impossible.

“Companies are being overrun by their own data, and in many cases can’t even utilize it due to the volume and cost to process it. The promise of new more open and scalable platforms is an exciting prospect to many companies, but are only truly an option if they can be used hand in hand with their existing applications,” said Gluent’s founder and CEO Tanel Poder. “We’re honored that Gartner has recognized us as a Cool Vendor and we are working to bridge the gap.”
