Attunity Teams with EMC to Enable Big Data Replication for Enterprise Analytics

Combined Attunity and EMC Greenplum solution enables enterprises to leverage Big Data using analytics to gain competitive advantage

BURLINGTON, MA– July 24, 2012 - Attunity Ltd. (OTC BB: ATTUD), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that it has teamed up with EMC to deliver a high-performance, easy-to-use Big Data replication solution for the EMC Greenplum Unified Analytics Platform. Attunity further announced that Attunity Replicate, officially qualified by EMC, is now available with dedicated optimizations for EMC Greenplum products.

Big Data analytics enables today’s most successful companies to gain competitive advantages. However, the efficient and timely movement of Big Data continues to be a major challenge, and can yield inaccurate analytic results that negatively impact the company’s bottom line. By teaming up and delivering optimized technology integration, Attunity and EMC are answering this critical need by eliminating the Big Data bottleneck. The combined solution helps businesses that want to capitalize on Big Data analytics to better support decision-making and improve their competitive position.

“Together with Attunity, EMC is excited to extend an end-to-end Big Data warehousing solution that is high-speed, easy to implement and use, and cost-efficient,” said David Menninger, vice president of strategy and business development, Greenplum, a division of EMC. “Our product qualification process ensures for EMC Greenplum customers and prospects that Attunity Replicate has passed the rigorous testing required and has proven to be highly effective at making Big Data initiatives faster and easier to deploy.”

“According to a recent IDC survey1, only 25% of organizations are satisfied with the ability of their business analytics technology solution to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time,” stated Dan Vesset, vice president of business analytics research and a leading Big Data analyst at IDC. "And as cited by 51.4% of the respondents in a 2012 IDC BI and Analytics survey1, data integration is the top IT challenge for delivering a successful business analytics solution. Big data is forcing business process and organizational changes that many people in an organization may be reluctant to embrace; however, complacency is not an option. Enterprises must rise to the challenge of managing Big Data, lest their competitors beat them to it.”

“The volume and velocity of data today is growing at an unprecedented rate and is projected to continue to accelerate in the years ahead,” explains Itamar Ankorion, Vice President Business Development and Corporate Strategy at Attunity.This issue is what Big Data is all about. It represents the key challenge for IT organizations that are looking for ways to effectively capitalize on Big Data analytics to gain competitive advantage.  Attunity’s relationship with EMC enables enterprises to quickly overcome these challenges and reap the benefits from the value of Big Data.”
