Cloudera has unveiled its new integrated data platform, designed to deliver self-services analytics across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

According to the company, the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) provides enterprise IT with the ability to deliver analytics as a service to the business in any cloud environment, while providing rich data security and lineage capabilities that minimise risk.

"CDP is a new approach to enterprise data that delivers a full range of analytic capabilities from the Edge to AI," explains Mick Hollison, chief marketing officer at Cloudera.

Hollison says CDP is different from other data platforms and analytics services in four important ways:
1. Any cloud – CDP provides maximum choice and flexibility with the option to manage, analyse, and experiment with data on-premises, in hybrid, private cloud, and multiple public cloud environments.
2. Multi-function – CDP reduces the time and effort to deploy common application types with five new self-service experiences: flow - streaming, data engineering, data warehouse, operational database, and machine learning.
3. Secure and Governed – CDP simplifies security, privacy, and compliance for diverse enterprise data on any cloud through shared data experience (SDX) technologies. 
4. Open – CDP is 100% open source, open compute, open storage and open for integration – enabling rapid innovation and protecting organisations from vendor lock-in.

Arun C. Murthy, chief product officer at Cloudera, says CDP enables IT to embrace hybrid data architectures and set up cloud data lakes with enterprise-grade security and governance, in hours instead of days or weeks.

“Business users get cloud-native, easy-to-use multi-function analytics satisfying their need for speed and agility," he says.
