PwC is a leader in audit innovation,” said Michael Flynn, Principal and Innovation Leader in PwC’s Advanced Risk and Compliance Analytics Solutions practice. “We’ve been using new technology like Paxata to enable our audit teams to rapidly scale to handle the most complex audits with a focus on data quality, governance and traceability. With the addition of Azure, this technology will give us even further scalability to handle the most demanding data.”

Paxata’s new InterCloud Connect capability delivers the first multi-cloud information platform, which provides the seamless, secure, bidirectional interchange of data between Microsoft Azure, and other cloud and/or on-premises environments. Using Paxata, customers can start with running in Microsoft Azure, and then connect to any cloud environment or on-premise infrastructure to access all their data no matter where it resides.

Our strategic joint vision forged last year with Microsoft really drove our continued innovation to take advantage of the rapidly growing Azure cloud services, and we have seen significantly high demand from the market for supporting Azure in the last year,.” said Prakash Nanduri, Co-Founder and CEO of Paxata.  He added, “Multi-tenant, elastic cloud architecture was a fundamental principle of Paxata from the outset when we pioneered a new approach to information management, so we are thrilled to provide first-class support for multiple services in the Azure Big Data ecosystem. InterCloud Connect builds on our Azure support to capture the burgeoning hybrid, multi-cloud information platform opportunity.”
