paxataPaxata, provider of the Adaptive Data Preparation™ platform for the enterprise, announced a strategic relationship with Cisco which includes a jointly-developed solution, Cisco Data Preparation (CDP). The relationship includes tight coordination on go-to-market plans and sales engagement strategies across Cisco’s direct and partner ecosystem.

Powered by Paxata, the Cisco Data Preparation offering is a complete software, hardware and services solution. As described in a blog by Kevin Ott, Vice President of Cisco’s Data Virtualization and Analytics Business Unit, this solution will simplify user adoption and accelerate benefits:

  • Leveraging an easy-to-learn and use Excel-like interface and powerful machine intelligence algorithms from Paxata, CDP removes barriers to adoption and elevates business analysts’ skills.
  • Two-way integration with Cisco Data Virtualization helps leverage prior IT investments and closes the gap between Business users and IT.
  • CDP’s massively scalable Hadoop and Spark-based architecture ensures that CDP users won’t be constrained by the size of data sets or complexity of analysis.
  • Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS) Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data integrates the computing, storage, connectivity, and unified management capabilities needed for high-performance, high-reliability CDP operations.
  • Plus a complete set of Cisco and Partner provided “Plan” and “Build” services ensure CDP implementation success.

We are delighted to partner with a world-class organization like Cisco as we continue to fulfill our vision to bringing Adaptive Data Preparation to every analyst in the enterprise,” said Prakash Nanduri, Co-founder and CEO of Paxata. “As a key pillar in Cisco’s broader Big Data and Analytics portfolio, Paxata will expand Cisco’s reach by bringing data preparation to a much larger business-facing audience leveraging a state-of-the-art Big Data processing platform that meets IT’s requirements for scale and governance. Additionally, the joint value proposition of Paxata’s platform running on Cisco’s UCS hardware completely changes the economics of computing in the data center in a truly disruptive way.”

While Cisco Data Preparation is sold as a standalone offering, it is ideal for Cisco customers who have invested in Cisco Data Virtualization, Cisco Connected Analytics, Unified Computing Systems and data center investments who want to take a major step forward in their business agility journey.
