Aetna, Merck, Target and SAS join forces with Hortonworks to ensure common approach to data governance across all systems and data
Hortonworks® the leading contributor to and provider of enterprise Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced the creation of the Data Governance Initiative (DGI). DGI will develop an extensible foundation that addresses enterprise requirements for comprehensive data governance. In addition to Hortonworks, the founding members of DGI are Aetna, Merck, and Target and Hortonworks' technology partner SAS.
Enterprises adopting a modern data architecture must address certain realities when legacy and new data from disparate platforms are brought under management. DGI members will work with the open source community to deliver a comprehensive solution; offering fast, flexible and powerful metadata services, deep audit store and an advanced policy rules engine. It will also feature deep integration with Apache Falcon for data lifecycle management and Apache Ranger for global security policies. Additionally, the DGI solution will interoperate with and extend existing third-party data governance and management tools by shedding light on the access of data within Hadoop. Further DGI investment roadmap phases will be released in the coming weeks.
"The Data Governance Initiative has the potential to supercharge Hadoop innovation because industry leaders actually participate in open source development," said Mike Gualtieri, principal analyst at Forrester Research. "If successful, that should result in a razor sharp prioritization of data governance features that enterprises need the most for their Hadoop implementations."
"This joint engineering initiative is another pillar in our unique open source development model," said Tim Hall, vice president, product management at Hortonworks. "We are excited to partner with the other DGI members to build a completely open data governance foundation that meets enterprise requirements."
