Data Master Extension for the Zaloni Data Platform

Leverage Machine Learning for Agile Data Mastering in the Data Lake. Creating “golden” or master records from multiple data sources helps organizations achieve a single version of the truth, as well as an enriched view of the customer or product data for applications such as intelligent pricing, personalized marketing, smart alerts, customized recommendations, and more.

Data Master is an extension to the Zaloni Data Platform (ZDP) that provides a practical, unique solution for the customer or product 360° initiatives at the scale of big data, enabling agile data mastering in the data lake.

  • Uses a Spark-based machine learning approach for matching and linking records based on supervised learning techniques
  • Matches all types of data
  • Provides an IT and business interface
  • Leverages live data to train the matching models
  • Uses Spark architecture to scale based on data and cluster size

Zaloni Data Master Extension leverages the Zaloni Data Platform (ZDP) for data ingestion, metadata, data quality, governance, scalability and user interface. The platform provides workflow and orchestration to automate operational data pipelines for creating master records.

Zaloni’s total, the integrated package provides a clear advantage and faster time to value over more limited deduplication open source or point products that lack data preparation capabilities such as joins and data profiling. Also, implementing master data management natively in the data lake enables organizations to leverage the scale-out technologies of the Hadoop ecosystem.

In addition, Zaloni Data Master Extension uses APIs to allow for seamless access to customer master records (CMR) and/or product master records (PMR) systems for master record lookups and other downstream applications.

ZDP Data Catalog Plus

Self-service data promises to be a game changer for today’s data-driven company. It provides analysts, SME’s and data scientists with easy access to prepare and analyze data. Self-service access to the data catalog also reduces the burden on IT, boosts productivity and increases competitive advantage.

But the reality is that while the promise is great, there are risks as well. The fractured big data ecosystem limits productivity and increases IT workload. Worse yet, it can reduce the level of rigor and governance required to trust the end result.

Zaloni’s Catalog Plus turns the promise of self-service access into a reality. Catalog Plus is part of the Zaloni Data Platform (ZDP) and provides an enterprise data catalog to bridge the gap between IT & business.

  • Discover & Ingest: Discover, catalog and ingest data from sources across the enterprise
  • Prepare & Manage: Enrich and prepare data for analytics or to operationalize workflows
  • Deliver & Share: Create workspaces and provision data

“We chose Zaloni because they specialize in big data technologies and implementations and were able to put the right tools together to address our specific use cases.”
