Okera Named a Cool Vendor by Gartner
Okera recognized in Gartner’s 2020 Cool Vendors in DataOps report
The Okera Active Data Access Platform increases access to data across the enterprise while ensuring effective data management, security and governance at scale.
According to Gartner, “Data and analytics leaders report spending 36% of their time on data preparation and data integration, more than any other data management task. This creates bottlenecks around faster data consumption throughout the enterprise.” To overcome this challenge, Gartner recommends that data and analytics leaders exploring DataOps capabilities must “integrate data governance and stewardship practices and policies into any new tools and platforms used to deliver on DataOps concepts to counter the trend of data agility leading to data chaos.”
Okera enables data and analytics leaders to share data confidently, knowing their data is secure and that data access complies with evolving privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. By supporting a growing and evolving variety of data usage and access patterns and eliminating the need to create multiple copies of data for different projects, Okera enables organizations to use data more effectively to speed business outcomes, create better customer experiences, and achieve competitive advantage in a secure, efficient, and performant way.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a Cool Vendor in DataOps by Gartner and consider our inclusion as further validation of our leadership in the market. From our view, it’s never been more critical than it is today to ensure secure data access for enterprises so that the right people have the right access to the right data at the right time in the right format,” said Nick Halsey, Okera CEO. “We’re empowering enterprises to unlock the full power of their data in a responsible and compliant way by using dynamic, fine-grained access controls. Okera is truly solving for the last mile in securing data access and governance at scale.”
