Ataccama ONE GEN2 promises self-driving data accessed on command

There’s a data clash occurring between non-technical users who want data insights fast and the analysts who know it takes time to provide quality.

Setting out to solve the conflict, Atacama Corp.’s ONE platform is going into second generation with a major shift to hands-off, high-quality data management.

“The reason we have redeveloped it was to get rid of those walls, those silos,” said Michal Klaus (pictured), chief executive officer of Ataccama. “This way we can actually automate the whole process, not just the parts of the process.”

Klaus spoke with Rebecca Knight, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE’s livestreaming studio, for a digital CUBE Conversation on the launch of Ataccama ONE GEN2, a self-driving platform for data management and data governance. (* Disclosure below.)

Less time on mundane tasks means more time for core processes

Providing non-technical users with access to instant data improves time to value, according to Klaus. And resources are saved by freeing data scientists from mundane tasks.

“They spend 80% on really preparing the data and only 20% on the value-added part of their jobs,” Klaus stated.

Only applying artificial intelligence on the individual level of data modules creates broken processes according to Klaus. “You will have augmented data profiling, augmented data cataloging, but you will still have the walls between the products … a wall between the processes or sub-processes,” he said.

Ataccama ONE GEN2 is built on top of three major underlying components: data processing, the metadata management core, and the AI core, which enables it to automate the whole data governance process.

“We call the principle ‘from intent to result,’” Klaus said. He gives the example of a customer requesting all customer and product ownership data as an API, updated every two hours. “And without having to do anything else, you will be able to get that API,” he stated.

Today marks the launch of Ataccama ONE GEN2 in beta version to a limited number of customers, with general availability scheduled for February 2021.

“We will be speeding up with additional releases of the platform that will gradually make the whole suite of functionality available in the self-driving fashion,” Klaus stated. “Organizations and people, data people, business people, will be free from the mundane activity of finding data; trying to put it together. They will be able to use readily made data product, [and] it will be high quality, it will be governed.”
