Sinequa, a leader in real-time Big Data search and analytics, today announced availability of a series of new smart connectors for cloud and Big Data Hadoop environments. The “plug and play” connectors of the Sinequa Big Data Search & Analytics Platform, enable seamless access to data, wherever it resides, with agility, speed and security.

“Today’s enterprises have complex, hybrid enterprise data sources that span cloud, Hadoop ‘data lakes’ and on-premise infrastructure,” said David Schubmehl, Research Director at IDC. “Deriving comprehensive data insights from these separate data silos is becoming a massive challenge.”

The adoption of cloud and Hadoop continues to rise within data-intensive organizations. Sinequa has taken this challenge head on by delivering smart connectors that streamline access to data in all of these environments without the time-lag usually incurred by custom connector development.

Hadoop Connectors

New Sinequa “out of the box” connectors for Hadoop, in particular for the MapR Hadoop distribution, include:

  • HDFS
  • Hive
  • HBase

Cloud Connectors

The new Sinequa connectors support the increasing volumes of application data retained in the cloud, including AWS, Microsoft Office 365 with SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, OneDrive and Yammer. They enable the indexing and analysis of this cloud-based application data integrated with on-premise versions of Microsoft Office for a single, combined result. The new Sinequa connectors for Cloud include:

  • Microsoft Office 365 including:
    • SharePoint Online
    • Exchange Online
    • OneDrive
    • Yammer
  • Mimecast
  • com
  • Veeva Vault

Other Enterprise Applications Connectors

Sinequa also now offers new and updated connectors for the following solutions:

  • Alfresco V5
  • Confluence V5
  • Emerson DCA
  • IDBS
  • OpenText Alchemy
  • PTC Windchill
  • Siemens PLM software Teamcenter

“With over 150 smart connectors and growing, Sinequa provides the broadest out-of-the-box connectivity to the most widespread structured and unstructured data sources on the market. This enables our customers to jumpstart the implementation of the Sinequa Big Data Search & Analytics platform while assuring an outstanding level of connectivity for the data unification of the entire Big Data, enterprise application and cloud data ecosystem. As a result, customers can speed the efficient implementation of their Sinequa projects by an order of magnitude because implementation time is spent on extracting the highest possible business value from data rather than on connecting to data sources,” said Laurent Fanichet, Vice President of Marketing, Sinequa.
