For too many organizations, the move to big data technologies has created barriers to information access for business and data analysts without formal software development training. This document shows how Boomi DCP can enable a broader user community to derive business value from practically any combination of enterprise data sources, without learning to program.
Boomi Data Catalog and Preparation (DCP) is a platform in which both IT and the business analyst community can find value. IT can easily add Boomi DCP to a new or existing big data cluster as easily as adding a traditional node to Hadoop. IT staff responsible for data governance can configure the right data access for the right users, using DCP role-based security integrated with existing source systems controls.
Business analysts using DCP can create powerful data transformations and summaries, with basic relational data structure and common SQL commands knowledge. These jobs are then run using highly scalable Hadoop services to produce new data artifacts. The artifacts are suitable for use with many popular reporting and visualization tools, both inside and outside of the Hadoop ecosystem.
Boomi DCP provides a platform that IT can easily install and manage, easy for data governance management, and easy for business analysts to use. This combination enables organizations that are investing in big data technologies to safely expand the end-user base, provide more value, and improve the ROI of any data-driven initiatives.
