Equifax Adopts Attunity Replicate to Load Data Warehouse and Enable Big Data Analytics Customer Testimonial: Attunity's data replication solution supports strategic decision making and drives competitive advantage
BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that Equifax (NYSE: EFX), one of the largest sources of consumer and commercial data in the world, has adopted Attunity's high-performance data replication solution, Attunity Replicate. Equifax plans to leverage Attunity's fast and easy-to-use data loading solution to scale its data warehousing efforts, with the intent of increasing the timeliness and accuracy of information to support strategic decision-making and drive competitive advantage.
With more than one hundred years of innovation to its credit, Equifax is a global information solutions leader whose business has been built on data and is fueled by information availability. Previously challenged by manual and time-consuming nightly batch loading of data from several disparate databases to its data warehouse, Equifax actively researched a more efficient process. Requiring a solution that could handle their mixed data environment with speed, low latency and ease of use, Equifax chose Attunity Replicate. This solution combines high-performance data replication with change data capture (CDC) technology for maximum data movement efficiency. By using Attunity Replicate, Equifax will now be capable of meeting its real-time analytic goals more easily and affordably.
"Attunity Replicate's real-time capabilities, combined with its broad platform support and ease of use, will enable us to further improve our Big Data analytics initiatives," said Robert Friedrich, CIO, North America Commercial Solutions at Equifax. "The ability to quickly extract key insights from Big Data and relay the most accurate and timely information to stakeholders will enable us to make better informed decisions for our business while providing improved services and solutions to our valued customers."
"We are proud that Equifax, a company built on data and innovation, chose Attunity Replicate to provide information availability for its analytics initiatives," stated Shimon Alon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Attunity. "By providing an optimized data loading solution that is tightly integrated with its Greenplum data warehouse, Attunity Replicate is able to arm Equifax with low-latency, accurate information. Attunity is pleased to partner with Equifax to ensure that the most effective information solutions and services are provided to Equifax customers worldwide ─ ultimately contributing to Equifax's increased competitive advantage."
