Cloudera has announced the launch of Cloudera Data Platform One, an all-in-one data lakehouse software as a service offering that enables fast and easy self-service analytics and exploratory data science on any type of data.

A simple yet powerful cloud service, only CDP One has built-in enterprise security and machine learning that requires zero cloud, security or monitoring operations staff for lower TCO and reduced risk. Designed to make both data practitioners and expert developers more productive, companies can now achieve faster time to business insight to drive innovation and stay ahead of the competition.

According to Cloudera, unlike other solutions that solve only part of the problem or lock users into a limited number of analytic tools, CDP One:

  • Is the first data lakehouse SaaS offering with cloud compute, cloud storage, ML, streaming analytics and enterprise grade security built-in.
  • Provides Zero Ops functionality that enables fast and easy self-service analytics on any type of data without the need for specialised ops or cloud expertise.
  • Is built with the same Cloudera technology that was rated better for analytic and operational use cases by leading industry analysts than the point product vendors or point services from hyperscalers.
  • Reduces overall TCO by 20 to 35% when including initial set up and operations of platform ops, sec ops and support, versus DIY cloud solutions.

According to Ventana research, almost three-quarters of organisations continue to run analytics and data workloads on premises. Security, a lack of skills and resources, and regulatory challenges are the primary reasons why organisations do not plan to use cloud computing for analytics and data.

As the first all-in-one data lakehouse SaaS offering, CDP One makes it faster, easier and less risky for businesses to make their move to the cloud and migrate existing workloads to a modern data architecture. Everyone from novice data practitioners to skilled developers can now take advantage of low-code tools, streaming data analytics and ML to perform ad-hoc, and highly customisable analysis across the full data lifecycle via one secure, centralised data platform.

"Empowering everyone in your business to get the real-time insights they need to make the right decisions requires building a truly modern data architecture in the cloud," says Ram Venkatesh, chief technology officer at Cloudera.

"Many businesses dont have the resources, time or expertise to make this transformation happen. Cloudera's latest cloud innovation, CDP One, joins our family of CDP cloud data services to completely alter the equation, shaving months or even years from implementation timelines and providing comprehensive data security," he says.

"The Asia Pacific region is a non-homogenous region, with varying segments and disparate business and institutional environments. This makes it challenging for any global business navigating security and regulatory challenges to juggle digital transformation initiatives and building business resilience," adds Remus Lim, vice president for Asia Pacific and Japan, Cloudera.

"We are also facing a tech talent crunch, making it difficult to hire talent with the right resources. Finding new and innovative ways to address these challenges is top of the agenda," he says.

"CDP One offers APAC businesses a secure, centralised data platform that eliminates data silos and drives operational and cost efficiencies. With faster time to insights, businesses can be better informed as they navigate this rapidly changing environment, tackle the talent crunch and combat the adverse effects of stagflation."
