BARC, the consulting firm, states Zeenea is The Adaptive Data Catalog

bar zeenea data catalog

Last week, we had the pleasure to read this statement done by BARC in their last briefing research: “Zeenea is the Adaptive Data Catalog”. To understand the significance of this research, let’s explain who BARC is.

Who is BARC?

The Business Application Research Center (BARC) is an industry analyst and consulting firm for business software with a focus on Business Intelligence/Analytics, Data Management, Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

BARC analysts have been supporting companies in strategy, organization, architecture and software evaluations for more than 20 years.

An established, continuous program of market research and product comparison studies forms the basis of BARC’s comprehensive knowledge of all the leading software providers and products, best practices and the latest market trends and developments.

BARC events offer a focused overview of leading software solutions, trendsetting developments and current requirements as well as market developments in the various areas of enterprise applications.
In short, they want to transform companies – more specifically based in DACH countries – into Digital Leaders!

What did BARC say about Zeenea Data Catalog?

The research was written by Timm Grosser, BARC’s Senior Analyst for Data Management. He views Zeenea as a young and growing data catalog software provider on the market.

 Timm Grosser BARC

He stated:

“Zeenea is a fairly young product and has already demonstrated quite a lot considering it has just three years of market experience and 50 customers. The company is concentrating on the core of data cataloging, thereby setting itself apart from the competition, which is becoming broader and broader from my point of view. The tool is clearly arranged for me.
[…]
The roadmap features many ML-based, innovative functions, such as improved similarity detection, pattern recognition and identifying relevant attribute values.
I think the idea and approaches have succeeded in making the data catalog grow adaptively with the company. I am of the opinion that we do not need another battleship catalog. Instead, it is important to take the company and users on a journey towards a data-centric enterprise. And this journey must be feasible. It requires consideration of the organization, the capabilities within the company, and a flexible, simple structure for catalog content. The idea is there and the first technological precautions have been taken. I’m curious to see what Zeenea will make of it.”

New white paper: “Data Discovery through the eyes of Tech Giants”

New white paper: “Data Discovery through the eyes of Tech Giants”

Learn about the data discovery solutions developed by various Tech Giants that enabled their data teams to understand and trust in their data assets. 

We’ve released today our new special edition white paper “Data Discovery through the eyes of Tech Giants” which focuses on the different data discovery platforms that were developed by huge tech corporations such as Airbnb, Uber, Spotify, to name a few. 

Thousands of datasets are being created each day, and enterprises find themselves struggling to understand and gain insights from their information. Usually messy, scattered and unorganized, data & analytics teams are found spending most of their time cleaning up a Big Data mess! In fact, many recent surveys still state that data science teams spend 80% of their time preparing and tidying their data instead of analyzing and reporting it. 

The numerous and diverse data added on a daily basis makes it extremely challenging, even impossible, to manually maintain data ingestion! These huge corporations therefore quickly understood that it was essential to put in place a repository of metadata that automated data discovery for their data and analytics teams to quickly find and understand their enterprise data.

We based our research on official documentation provided by these Tech Giants, which they shared across their corporate social media and blogging platforms. It goes into detail on how these enterprises came to developing their solutions, the characteristics of their platforms, and the next steps for each company.

The experiences of the organizations have largely inspired Zeenea in their data catalog’s value proposition to facilitate the discovery of information assets by data teams in the simplest and most intelligent way possible.

Brand Update: Why it is the right time to change

Brand Update: Why it is the right time to change

gif zeenea brand update

Our initial branding strategy certainly wasn’t the most elaborative…

We first asked ourselves what the name of our company should be. Next, we needed to quickly launch a logo that would enable us to start our adventure with our first customers. 

Our founding vision was to reinvent the way data users work with their data by providing a data catalog solution. We wanted to open up the potential of data to all employees instead of restricting it to a group of experts. In other words, become “Data Fluent”.

Once we shared this vision, which, let’s face it, was fairly concise, the door was finally open for us to get started! And this is how Zeenea was born 

 

zeenea-logo-bleu-orange-new copie

Could we have devoted a little more time to the exercise?

Yes of course. 

However, this first version of Zeenea enabled us to deal with more urgent tasks that today mark our difference in the metadata management market.

All this time, we have put our clients’ priorities and the technological challenges they face at the forefront. Everything points towards more simplicity, automaticity, and visibility on data assets in the goal to bring more business value.

Three years, many clients in various sectors and some fifty employees later, there is no doubt that our company is here to stay!

Now don’t be mistaken, we loved our old one! Our name, logo, and early messages have all helped explain our promise. And yet, we decided to evolve our identity to state our position as a pure player in the data catalog market.

Today, we are changing 🙂

This is not just about our logo, colors, or fonts. This is a statement of our priorities and our DNA to our community.

As we begin to expand with clients in Europe and across the Atlantic Ocean, we felt it was essential to state our position as the next-gen data catalog with a new identity representing our values and strengths: automaticity, flexibility and ease of use.

Today, we are happy to announce a new identity! Zeenea wants to be as close as possible to its users and their needs. Rediscover Zeenea, the next-gen data catalog designed for data-driven companies and their teams.

Webinar: 6 weeks to start metadata management

Webinar: 6 weeks to start metadata management

As the Data Innovation Summit was postponed to August 20th-21st, we prepared a 40 minute webinar about our new White Paper : 6 weeks to start metadata management.

Join Luc Legardeur – Co-founder of Zeenea – on May 14th at 11AM!

Metadata management: an essential discipline

Metadata management is still an emerging discipline, but is especially necessary for enterprises wishing to bolster innovation or regulatory compliance initiatives on their data assets.

Many of them are trying to establish their convictions on the subject and brainstorm solutions to meet this new challenge.

Throughout this webinar, we would like to share our advice and expertise on implementing iterative metadata management in only 6 weeks.

Key takeaways

Thanks to this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The benefits of Metadata management.
  • The prerequisites for a successful launch of a metadata management system.
  • How to manage metadata?
  • How to start metadata management?

Many enterprises are trying to establish their convictions on the subject and brainstorm solutions. As a result, metadata is increasingly being managed, alongside data, in a partitioned and siloed way that does not allow the full, enterprise-wide potential of this discipline.

    Join our conference: “Smart Data Catalogs: a must-have for Data Leaders”

    Cataloging valuable data assets to support data literacy is turning into a cornerstone of any company-wide data strategy. However, with the rapid growth of the data landscape and with the diversity of data sources and data types, maintaining a manual catalog of those assets becomes extremely difficult, even virtually impossible.

    Introducing the Smart Data Catalog, providing ML-powered metadata management! Automate processes such as the discovery, inventorying, profiling and tagging of data assets.

    Nevertheless we, at Zeenea, believe that a smart data catalog is not limited to just Machine Learning! It also means automated deep and multi-channel metadata-gathering automation, similarity detection, data knowledge crowdsourcing, social curation, adaptive user experiences, etc.

    Join Guillaume Bodet, CEO of Zeenea on September 10th at 3:35pm to see how a smart data catalog can help you scale from local use cases to enterprise-wide metadata management.

    Zeenea Data Catalog now connects to Snowflake!

    Zeenea Data Catalog now connects to Snowflake!

    Zeenea announces the launching of its Snowflake connector already up and running with its clients. 

    In order to deliver an enterprise and relevant data catalog, we provide many connectors that automate and curate metadata including  Cloud & Big Data storages, Relational databases, Non relational databases, and more are constantly being added.

    By using our connectors, Zeenea provides a reality proof data catalog for data-driven companies to ensure your data consumers access up-to-date information stored within our powerful platform. 

    Founded in 2012, Snowflake developed a new data platform from the ground up to  the cloud. Its patented new architecture was designed to be the centerpiece for data pipelines, data warehousing, data lakes, data application developments, and for building data exchanges to easily and securely share governed data. Their promise? Deliver as a service data warehouse that’s powerful but simple to use.

    To achieve this, Snowflake also works with a wide array of industry-leading tools and technologies, enabling access to Snowflake through an extensive network of connectors, drivers, programming languages, and utilities. 

    It is, therefore, no surprise that we are announcing our integration with one of the most popular data management & cloud data platform of the moment with Zeenea Data Catalog. Welcome to Snowflake!

    What does our Snowflake connector do?

    Our connector will help you to better manage data in your Snowflake environment. It can automatically connect to your database, and retrieve a broad range of metadata. Our Zeenea Scanner process, which uses this new connector, is able to periodically collect information and detect modifications related to your schema. The connector can collect technical metadata, such as technical names, data types, constraints related to your tables and their columns, but also documentation you may have provided at the table of field level.

    This is our first version, be sure we will improve it with other great features in the coming weeks!

    The more information the connector collects, the less your Data Stewards have to fill in your Data Catalog. This is why we are considering metadata ingestion automation as a key success factor!

      Do you want to see our Snowflake connector in actions?
