Today we unveiled our new intelligent schema management that automates dataset discovery, schema inference, policy assignment, and governance for data lakes. Designed to support multiple analysis tools running on Amazon S3 data lakes, this new capability simplifies how data consumers can find and access data from popular big data analytic tools, such as Amazon EMR, Hive, Presto, Spark, and leading BI tools from Tableau , Birst, and Qlik.

We’re promoting this new release to support Okera’s presence at Amazon re:Invent 2018 and are sharing this quote from Amandeep with members of the media community: “Data analysts can only move as fast and efficiently as they can find and access the data they need to do their work,” said Amandeep Khurana, Okera CEO and co-founder. “With Okera’s new intelligent schema management, consumers of data from Amazon S3 data lakes can use the analytic tools they want on the data they need faster than ever before.”

At Okera, we’re committed to helping enterprises do more with their data without compromising on governance, compliance, or security. We do this by delivering unified schemas, access control, and governance for Amazon S3 data lakes. Okera’s Active Data Access Platform (ODAP) provides industry-leading, dynamic access control capabilities such as real-time tokenization, redaction, and row-level filtering required by emerging regulations such as GDPR and CCPA uniformly across all analytic tools, including Python, MapReduce, Spark, Hive, and Presto.

The latest release of ODAP includes a new intelligent schema management capability that allows data administrators to automatically discover new data sets, infer their schema, and assign universal access permissions for all analytic tools using ODAP’s fine-grained access control. This latest release also includes a new file system feature that streamlines the discovery, access, governance, and use of unstructured data in Amazon S3 data lakes.

We are showcasing ODAP’s new capabilities for Amazon S3 data lakes at AWS re:Invent 2018, November 26-30 in Las Vegas at booth #138…so if you’re around, please stop on by or click here to schedule an onsite demo.
