Datameer Spotlight accelerates insights and creates trusted analytic results by enabling line-of-business analytics professionals to rapidly discover, share, and collaborate on analytics and data science assets across the organization, without the help of IT.
SAN FRANCISCO, October 29th, 2019 – Datameer, a leading provider of data preparation and exploration, today introduced Datameer Spotlight, a new product that enables analytics and data science teams to find, combine, and publish trusted information assets in hybrid landscapes. Datameer Spotlight’s self-service platform enables analytics professionals and data scientists to initiate projects in minutes and promptly answer analytics questions or build new models, thereby enabling greater business agility.
Datameer Spotlight provides a unified access point for analysts, data scientists, and business stakeholders to more effectively leverage all their data science and analytics assets across the enterprise. Datameer Spotlight works with information assets of any type (e.g. data, documents, reports, code, dashboards, SaaS applications, and data science models), no matter where they reside: on-premises, in the cloud, in SaaS applications, or in web services.
“The analytics landscape within an enterprise has grown exponentially with assets in many different forms and a multitude of places, impeding analytics professionals from doing their jobs in a timely and efficient manner,” says Andrew Brust, Founder and CEO of Blue Badge Insights. “Datameer Spotlight’s focus on providing access to these various analytics assets in a single place will help organizations derive faster, more accurate, and trusted insights.”
Datameer Spotlight uses virtualization and AI techniques to support a number of key capabilities. With Datameer Spotlight, teams can:
- Connect to analytics and data science assets and use them no matter where they reside
- Find and explore these assets to help answer analytics questions
- Combine assets to create new ones that are customized to solve the problem at hand
- Publish assets that can be consumed by business intelligence and data science tools
- Share and collaborate to re-use assets and build trust and knowledge across the enterprise
By providing virtualized access to analytics assets, Datameer Spotlight eliminates costly and error-prone movement, keeps assets securely in place, and ensures a trusted, single source of truth for each asset. Datameer Spotlight also includes security and governance capabilities that complement and integrate into existing frameworks.
Datameer Spotlight embeds AI in many of its features including: assisting with discovery of assets so teams can find the optimal ones for their specific problems, providing data blend suggestions, and optimizing queries and caching. All this makes the work of analysts and data scientists easier and faster.
Datameer Spotlight manages a wide variety of assets covering both traditional analytics and data science. This helps organizations unify all their analytics efforts and integrates data science initiatives into mainstream analytics processes and governance.
“Analytics is not just about data, and many teams struggle to find and connect their siloed analytic assets,” explains Bob Page, Datameer Chief Product Officer. “Datameer Spotlight is the first holistic solution that virtually connects these silos and enables collaboration without requiring changes to existing analysis or visualization tools.”
Datameer Spotlight complements an organization’s existing analytics landscape by working with data sources such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Postgres, and MySQL; data warehouses such as Teradata, Snowflake, and Amazon Redshift; business intelligence tools such as Tableau, PowerBI, and Looker; data science tools like Jupyter Notebooks; and SaaS applications such as Salesforce. Many more integrations are in the works. Check our integrations page for the latest.
