Knowledgent Implements First-of-Its-Kind Healthcare Enterprise Data Lake

Enterprise-Grade Solution Provides Consolidated Data Management Environment for Agile Analytics

Warren, NJ — January 8, 2015— Knowledgent, the data and analytics firm, today announced a first-of-its-kind data lake for a major healthcare enterprise. This data and analytics solution enables both business analysts and data scientists to access a wide variety of structured and unstructured datasets in a consolidated data management environment for agile, advanced analytics.

Knowledgent was engaged by this healthcare enterprise to develop and implement a data and analytics strategy that addressed the enterprise’s challenge around decentralized data management, which had led to a lack of governance and control, causing extensive resource misalignment. Knowledgent partnered with Hortonworks®, the contributor to and provider of enterprise Apache™ Hadoop®, for the implementation of a next-generation data warehouse and analytics environment, leveraging a Hadoop-based data lake. This engagement empowered business users and data scientists to rapidly access and analyze structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data for advanced analytics. A case study about this engagement can be found on the Knowledgent blog.

“Our partnership with Hortonworks was a critical enabler of the Hadoop-based data lake,” said Matthew Arellano, Healthcare Portfolio Partner at Knowledgent. “As a result, business analysts and data scientists within the enterprise can focus their talents on producing better and faster models for such analytics as member retention, utilization management, Medicare STARS, and risk adjustment.”

“The development of industry-specific applications is a natural next step in the evolution of the Hadoop market and we look forward to working with Knowledgent to provide data-driven applications for their customers,” said John Kreisa, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Hortonworks. “Our industry-leading Hadoop distribution integrated seamlessly with the data lake solution that, powered by Knowledgent’s expertise in data and analytics, will help users maximize the value from their data.”
