Liaison’s Strategy Called ‘Ambitious & Visionary’ for Evolving Cloud Data Integration Platform to a Data Management and Analytic Platform
ATLANTA, March 21, 2016 – Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced its new ALLOY™ platform has been named a “Strong Performer” in “The Forrester Wave™: Master Data Management, Q1 2016” report. The report profiles the 12 most significant vendors in the market.
Liaison‘s new ALLOY platform earned its highest scores in the big data, cloud and product strategy criteria, and the report noted that the solution is set to converge (integration and) data management capabilities into a single platform for analytics.
“Liaison Technologies has an ambitious and visionary strategy to evolve its cloud data integration platform to a data management and analytic platform,” the report states. “To do so, Liaison introduced the ALLOY platform, based on a big data infrastructure of MapR and graph. ALLOY delivers MDM through managed services, leveraging graph to define and orchestrate complex contextual master data models across a wide variety of structured, semistructured, and content sources.”
The report cited that “Increasingly, the demand for data sharing across silos requires consistency and connectedness between these views.” According to the report, among their chief MDM needs, firms require a data management hub for global and cross-system master data orchestration; data quality and governance capabilities to meet business policies; knowledge of the customer to support personalized customer engagement; support for complex regulatory policies that change financial and customer needs; and streamlined and automated operational processes with better master data.
ALLOY is the first solution of its kind to address those needs, providing a revolutionary Data Platform as a Service (dPaaS) solution that breaks down barriers to unify siloed data solutions, bringing together extract, transform and load processes, enterprise service bus, business-to-business integration, and data management—all in one end-to-end, fully compliant cloud platform.
ALLOY’s comprehensive approach to data integration, harmonization and management dramatically reduces the time, complexity and cost involved in the conventional integration process. This efficiency enables firms to extract greater value from their data faster and implement a future-ready platform that is flexible and scalable to meet their continuously evolving data needs.
“ALLOY is a groundbreaking new microservices-based platform that is leveraging our strong leadership position in data integration to make our vision of a unified, data-driven platform become a reality,” said Liaison Vice President of Emerging Technologies, Rob Fox. “We’re very excited to have our platform earn Forrester’s recognition as a Strong Performer right out of the gate and look forward to mapping the path to a data-centric future for our customers and the industry.”
