The data warehousing and business intelligence space has undergone a huge transformation in the past several years whereby business users are moving away from these traditional, ‘IT bottleneck’ environments to more agile ones driven by Big Data. For example, when business users lobbied for self-service access, they got Tableau. When they pressed for data discovery, they got Endeca. What’s next? An agile, yet controlled environment to satisfy both the business and IT community. Pivotal Data Dispatch (Pivotal DD) fulfills the needs of all enterprise data stakeholders by empowering business users with on-demand access and analysis to Big Data – all under an established system of metadata and security defined by IT.
