March 7, 2017 Kelly Schupp, VP, Data-Driven Marketing


This past week we were thrilled to announce that our customer, Dubai-based Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (du), one of the largest and fastest-growing telecommunications operators in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), was recognized by Gartner as one of three finalists in the Gartner Data & Analytics Excellence Awards in the category of Best Data Management and Infrastructure.

The Gartner Data & Analytics Excellence Awards recognize excellence in data and analytics technology to drive best-in-class initiatives. All submissions were assessed by a team of Gartner analysts and honorees were selected by benchmarking against world-class performance standards. Gartner looked for submissions with a strong organizational and leadership component, effective use of modern technologies, and most of all, clear business outcomes.

We were not surprised that du was shortlisted as a finalist. du is pushing the envelope in terms of developing a next-generation data architecture – which includes Zaloni's data lake management platform for ingestion, data management and governance.

du will present its leading-edge data management strategies at Strata + Hadoop World, San Jose next week. Dirk Jungnickel, a senior vice president heading the central Business Analytics and Big Data function at du, will be presenting at Strata + Hadoop World, San Jose on Tuesday, March 14, 11:00 a.m., room LL20A. He will discuss how du leverages big data to create smart cities and enable location-based data monetization, covering business objectives and outcomes and addressing technical and analytical challenges.

Zaloni is also exhibiting and presenting at Strata + Hadoop World. Sharma will present “Building a Modern Data Architecture” on Wednesday at 11:50am in room LL21A.
