Attunity and ING Join ODPi To Further Open Big Data Ecosystem

New members support efforts to advance data governance and data science approaches

BERLIN, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- DataWorks Summit -- ODPi, a nonprofit organization accelerating the open ecosystem of big data solutions, today announced that Attunity and ING have joined the initiative to advance data governance and data science approaches.

Many vendors have focused on productizing Apache Hadoop® as a distribution, which led to inconsistency that increased the cost and complexity for application vendors and end-users to  fully embrace Apache Hadoop. Founded in 2015, ODPi is an industry effort to accelerate the adoption of Apache Hadoop and related big data technologies. ODPi's members aim to accelerate Apache Hadoop adoption through a neutral, industry-wide approach to data governance and data science. Together, they are supporting the mission of creating an open data ecosystem through collaboration with subject matter experts and data platform and tools vendors.

"The Big Data market has, in part due to efforts by ODPi and its members, achieved the desired simplification of the Apache Hadoop landscape. However, barriers to broader and more rapid enterprise Hadoop adoption exist and can benefit from a neutral, industry-wide approach to data governance and data science," said John Mertic, director of program management, ODPi. "We are thrilled to have Attunity and ING on board as ODPi members to help us further these industry-wide approaches."

The new ODPi members will join a diverse and growing group of members that include well-known Apache Hadoop software companies, service providers and end users, as well as a rapidly growing community.

ING Information Architect and Application Developer, Maryna Strelchuk, and ODPi Director of Program Management, John Mertic, will be co-presenting at DataWorks Summit on The rise of big data governance: Insight on this emerging trend from active open source initiatives.

ODPi as an independent group plays a key role in helping standardization across vendors, for ING the key reason to join and support ODPi."
