Data virtualisation offers the functionality of maintaining security on row/column levels and the enrichment of data. The trend of moving analytical workloads to cloud data warehouses will keep growing as the performance and cost benefits are too significant to ignore. Businesses need to virtualise all their siloed data into a single, unified data view from which a variety of BI tools can get fast and consistent answers. AtScale solves these challenges for companies with data warehousing needs by providing its Virtual Data Warehouse. Founded in 2013, AtScale is the industry leader in data federation and cloud transformation, enabling enterprises to create a single view of their data, no matter where it is stored – data warehouses, data lakes, data marts or emerging cloud data platforms. Enterprises leverage AtScale to facilitate seamless and non-disruptive implementations for business intelligence, A.I. and Machine Learning applications in multi-cloud and multi-platform deployments globally.
With the slogan “Connect anything, everywhere”, AtScale’s Virtual Data Warehouse can easily be repointed from connecting BI tools with an on-premise data store to connecting those same tools with a cloud data warehouse. Built for today’s data platforms and BI tools, the firm provides the ability to connect to any data platform and provide access to virtually any BI tool or custom application. AtScale’s tabular (SQL) and multidimensional (OLAP) interfaces guarantee “speed of thought” performance. Sparing the users from turning into data engineers, the OLAP engine is the business-friendly interface that delivers complex analytics at scale.
Using AtScale’s inbuilt support for HLL++ sketch sets, users can move beyond simple sums, averages, and counts to large scale distinct counts and quantiles. AtScale is the only solution that connects Excel to live data on-premise and cloud, natively and users can connect BI tools like Tableau, Microsoft Excel, Power BI and more to live data sources without data movement. AtScale Adaptive Cache tunes query automatically using its AI-driven optimiser that learns from user behavior and data relationships. Regardless of how data is stored or where it is stored, AtScale’s data abstraction engine insulates users from the complexity of existing and future data platforms. The AtScale virtualisation layer makes hybrid and multi-cloud data architectures a reality while insulating users from disruption. The AtScale platform is built from the ground up to be open and extensible. With AtScale’s rich APIs and services layer, consumers can build custom applications, business processes, workflows, and monitor using their development tools.
Once, the leadership team of a Fortune 50 DIY retailer tasked their IT department with moving data from an on-premise enterprise data warehouse to a cloud enterprise data warehouse. The retailer’s IT department needed to determine how to run their data from Teradata to Google BigQuery without disrupting its business users. The retailer’s IT department was able to connect their different BI tools to their on-premise warehouse using AtScale’s Virtual Data Warehouse. When they had moved their data to the cloud, they were able to re-point the AtScale Virtual Data Warehouse from their on-prem data warehouse to their new cloud data warehouse within a single weekend. AtScale’s capacity to help its customers move data to the cloud without business interruption enabled this retailer to save millions of dollars that were being spent on legacy data warehouses. AtScale’s Virtual Data Warehouse delivers performance, security, and agility to exceed the demands of modern-day operational analytics. Led by industry veterans from Yahoo!, Google, Netezza, IBM, Microsoft, Salesforce, Cisco and Oracle, AtScale is relied upon globally by firms including JPMorgan Chase, Toyota, Wells Fargo, GlaxoSmithKline and many more.
