Datameer Spotlight gives organizations fast access and deep visibility into all of their enterprise data assets—whether in the cloud or on-premises—via a central, virtual self-service platform. Spotlight bridges data silos without any data movement, duplication, and IT assistance allowing business teams can discover, access, collaborate and analyze more data for faster, more trusted cloud analytics.
Datameer Spotlight virtualizes your data landscape and connects to all data sources, on-premise or in the cloud—including cloud object stores like S3, data lakes, data warehouses like Snowflake, Redshift, Teradata or Exadata, files, catalogs, and applications— (for a complete list see Integrations). Datameer Spotlight indexes the metadata of every data source and creates a searchable inventory of assets that can easily be mined by analysts and data scientists—all without moving any data. Typical searchable information includes table and column names, authors, characters of uploaded files, usage patterns, trust scores, and more.
Datameer Spotlight bridges your many data silos and allows analysts to combine and model different datasets to the specific needs of their analytics problem without having to write any code. It provides AI-driven guidance on how to model the data, offers visual representation of the data at each step, and provides complete data lineage to promote transparency and governance.
Once you’ve modeled your data, the dataset can now be queried from any BI, data discovery or data science tool via the universal JDBC/ODBC layer, an popular tools such as Tableau, Looker, Jupiter notebooks and Excel can be launched directly from Spotlight. The high performance virtual query engine ensures rapid response times using optimizations such as query pushdown and caching.
