Trace3, the Transformative IT Authority, announced today the release of the Dynamic Data Preparation Appliance designed to empower the “citizen analyst” to efficiently and securely access critical data for informed decision making. The appliance is ideal for line of business managers often challenged accessing IT managed data lakes and other enterprise data sources, which ultimately impacts timely and informed business decisions.

Trace3 partnered with Paxata and Cisco Systems in the development and design of the Dynamic Data Prep Appliance. According to Carey Moretti, Vice President of Data Intelligence at Trace3, “Trace3 saw the power of Paxata’s Adaptive Information platform early on, and we are very excited to open up a whole new segment of the data-driven market with two of our most innovative partners, Paxata and Cisco, and bring this game-changing capability directly to the business,”.

The Dynamic Data Prep Appliance is the first purpose-built appliance optimized for self-service data preparation providing rapid time-to-value for the business with a technology stack aligned to the requirements of Enterprise IT controls. “The Cisco UCS® Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics is a proven solution for enterprise-class deployments. Architecting the Dynamic Data Prep Appliance with the UCS® solution enables customers to harness the power of modern data management via a simplified infrastructure resulting in immediate value and benefit to the business,” said Kristin Struttmann, VP Strategic Partnerships at Trace3. With the appliance, everyone has the ability to rapidly turn raw data into ready data worthy of analytics – in minutes, not months.
