Modern data apps are increasingly going to the cloud due to their elastic compute demands, skills shortages and the complexity of managing big data on premises. And while more and more organizations are taking their data apps to the cloud to leverage its flexibility, they’re also finding that it is very challenging to assess application needs and how to migrate and optimize their data to ensure performance and cost targets are not compromised. This complexity underscores how critical a platform like Unravel is for businesses in any industry to get the most out of their cloud-based data apps.
The Unravel Partner Program we introduced today helps make the journey and experience in the cloud even easier. The program enables customers of world-leading technology innovators like Microsoft Azure, AWS, Informatica, Attunix, Dell, Clairvoyant and RCG Global Services, to solve their data operations challenges and accelerate their cloud adoption cycles.
I have the pleasure of leading this new program and working with the Unravel community. It’s thrilling to be at the starting line with our partners and customers to help them future-proof their data workloads in the cloud. Full details on platform, solution partnerships and program benefits are below in our company announcement and here, and I encourage you to drop us a line to learn more about the Unravel Partner Program.
