The platform takes advantage of advanced semantic data integration to make data collected across business systems instantly usable and relatable, freeing data from its constraints to provide immediate business value.

Real time analytics news in a nutshell

expert Announced new features for the Natural Language (NL) platform, allowing applications to be put into production faster, with high accuracy, and at scale. New capabilities include enhanced active learning to further improve data classification; Pre-trained knowledge models to accelerate the delivery of NLP applications as well as proactively identify and validate required outputs quickly; and extended extraction functions based on self-generation rules for extraction.

BigID Announced privacy and security-aware access control for AWS cloud infrastructure, reducing risk and automating role-based policies across AWS, including S3, Redshift, Athena, EMR, and more, with extended integrations with AWS Lake Formation and AWS Glue. With BigID, AWS customers can automate intelligent access control to enable and restrict access to their sensitive data—while creating business policies based on data sensitivity and context.

Emberva Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) has announced that it now offers data-centric protection and compliance for enterprise data lakes built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Imperva reinforces its commitment to securing data and all paths to it by allowing AWS customers to secure their data through a single end-to-end platform, leveraging a unified security model across Amazon Aurora, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Athena, and AWS CloudFormation without the need for any changes to the existing data infrastructure.

fiddler It announced improvements to its MPM platform, including giga-scale model ingestion, natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision (CV) monitoring, class imbalance, and an intuitive and simplified user experience. With these new features, the Fiddler MPM platform provides a deeper understanding of unstructured model behavior and performance, improved scalability, detectability of rare and subtle model drifts, and ease of use.

grill It announced that it has achieved both HIPAA and GDPR compliance, ensuring that its IT Operations Artificial Intelligence platform (AIOPs) meets all regulatory standards for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Achieving HIPAA and GDPR compliance for its product suite highlights the breadth of security measures in place to deliver advanced solutions that meet stringent global data protection regulations and maintain strong cloud security.

Profectus Released v0.6 update for the first open source data discovery (ODD) and monitoring platform. In addition to new features for data and ML engineers, the update includes a number of improvements for business users in BI and data analysis sections designed to increase data credibility and reliability. The ODD platform is enhanced version 0.6, providing improvements including an SLA indicator, activity feed, data entity usage report, session storage type selection, and alert notifications.

Jafrouj Announced its DevSecOps tool, JFrog Xray, it now supports Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Hub, a cloud security mode management service that performs best practice checks, collects alerts, and allows for automated remediation. JFrog, which is already part of the DevSecOps class within the AWS DevOps competency, has revealed that it is participating in the new AWS Marketplace Vendor Insights, which helps simplify the complex software risk assessment process by enabling JFrog to make security and compliance information available through the AWS Marketplace.

associative He launched the first machine learning model registry based on GitOps principles, Iterative Studio Model Registry. Unlike current solutions that are separate from SDKs and are often not updated with the latest model information, iterative takes workflows and best software development practices and applies them to model deployment, getting models into production faster. DevOps and MLOps teams collaborate using the same tools and processes, so production-ready models that are passed to CI/CD systems are all fully automated and transparent to all teams.

Partnerships, Collaboration and more

Iguazu And the sense Announced that the Iguazio MLOps platform will be used to power a wide range of AI products aimed at increasing the efficiency and scalability of Sense’s AI operations.
