Solix CDP recognized as a leader in Enterprise Data Platforms by Frost & Sullivan

Frost & Sullivan, a global leader in guiding organizations towards transformational growth through innovation, awarded Solix Technologies its prestigious 2018 Global Stratecast Enterprise Data Platforms Product Leadership award. Years of innovation and development of the Solix Technologies’ Common Data Platform have made Solix a leader in Big Data applications empowering enterprises to become data-driven. In awarding Solix the Global Enterprise Data Platforms Product Leadership, Frost & Sullivan not only commended the innovation of the Common Data Platform product, but the capability of Solix to continue innovating and serving the needs of its customers as the climate of business disruption continues.

From their extensive research, Frost & Sullivan concluded “Following and implementing sound fundamental principles of how to deal with data from the moment it enters a system until the moment it is retired was always important, but on the eve of GDPR enforcement, it may never have been as in-demand as it is right now. By intelligently blending consultative expertise with a deep, highly capable solution set, SOLIX has also elevated itself from the mere technology provider to business partner with its customers. By applying these things to the most crucial and sweeping privacy changes in any of our lifetimes to date, SOLIX has earned the Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan 2018 Award for Product Leadership in Enterprise Data Platforms.

“The automatic discovery and classification of sensitive personally identifiable information is one of the features of the Solix Common Data Platform we are most impressed by,” says Alexander Michael, Director, Frost & Sullivan, ICT Practice. “It is clever to mask or encrypt data at the information management level and to apply tiered storage and automatically delete data past consent expiration. The Solix approach avoids tinkering with the myriad of applications that could be capturing data. Solix eliminates a big GDPR compliance risk,” Mr. Michael adds.

“We are honored to receive Frost & Sullivan’s award for Global Enterprise Data Platforms Product Leadership,” said Sai Gundavelli, Founder/CEO, Solix Technologies. “With GDPR now well underway, we are committed to providing organizations with the solutions necessary to meet global data governance and compliance requirements.”
