“To address the complex challenges organizations face when looking to garner actionable insight from their data, we announced, in February, the strengthening of our hybrid cloud proposition by making our high-performance analytics database available via Exasol SaaS.”
In addition to the new collaboration with Keboola, Exasol has introduced a series of new product capabilities that expand on its fully managed, SaaS offering. The new product capabilities will further enhance a customer’s ability to access data-led insights quickly, without needing to manage hardware infrastructures. These innovations include:
- Enhanced AI/ML capabilities: Customers can now solve complex analytics challenges with ease, such as predictive analytics, by bringing in AI/ML algorithms directly to the data. Operationalizing ML models will also bring maximum performance within the database to its users.
- Data virtualization support: Analysts will be able to access objects from external sources without the need for migrating data. This support will also eliminate the need for the costly management of duplicate data. It will allow users to more easily access their data – whether it’s stored locally or in the cloud – and set-up or create a logical data warehouse.
- Amazon SageMaker extension: Exasol SaaS now supports a SageMaker Extension, enabling users to develop end-to-end machine learning projects on data stored in Exasol using the Amazon SageMaker Autopilot service. Doing so mean users can turn data into actionable insights in a matter of minutes.
“When it comes to an organization’s data strategy, data leaders are looking for the confidence to modernize with market-proven, enterprise capabilities that offer flexible migration paths – often to the cloud – at a pace and time that fits with budget and resource constraints,” says Donald Kaye, Chief Commercial Officer at Exasol. The impact of this decision can be profound: affecting costs, the pace of innovation, production releases, marketing penetration and security, to name just a few. “To address the complex challenges organizations face when looking to garner actionable insight from their data, we announced, in February, the strengthening of our hybrid cloud proposition by making our high-performance analytics database available via Exasol SaaS.”
Exasol SaaS is available in two versions. The Exasol SaaS Standard Edition delivers industry leading performance on-demand for organizations with smaller data volumes who don’t require advanced analytics and data integration features or extended support. The Exasol SaaS Enterprise Edition is designed for organizations that require multi-departmental analytics environments, need to perform ML or AI in the database, or have complex requirements in terms of data integration and data virtualization.
