Mountain View, Calif.—May 5, 2015 — Waterline Data and Synergic Partners announced their partnership today at Strata + Hadoop World in London. The companies are partnering in the area of Big Data governance, launching a joint solution that combines Synergic Partners’ strategy and implementation expertise with Waterline Data Inventory.
Carme Artigas, Synergic Partners’ co-founder said, “At Synergic Partners we have realized that the need for a Big Data Governance solution is becoming imperative for most of our clients. With this strategic partnership with Waterline Data we join forces not only to improve the operational efficiency of Data Science teams but also to provide a framework for the definition and implementation of Data Governance policies for dynamic Big Data environments.”
Waterline Data provides the Data Governance foundation for Hadoop
Waterline Data is an automated data discovery platform that helps:
• Data architects inventory all data in Hadoop automatically at scale, and provision data to business users securely
• Data engineers, data scientists, and business analysts find the best-suited and most trusted data for data analysis automatically without having to explore every file manually
• Data stewards discover lineage and business metadata automatically, as well as manage metadata
Alex Gorelik, Founder and CEO, states “A major complaint with Hadoop is it lacks metadata discovery, metadata management, and data governance capabilities needed to use Hadoop as an enterprise data platform. Incorporating Waterline Data Inventory into Synergic Partners’ solution will provide a turnkey solution to enable Big Data Governance.”

About Waterline Data
Waterline Data was founded in 2013, and is backed by Menlo Ventures and Sigma West. The inspiration for the name “Waterline” came from the metaphor of the data lake where the data is hidden in the depth of the lake below the waterline. The mission of Waterline Data is to help data engineers and data scientists find the best-suited and most trusted data without coding and manual exploration – in other words they should be able to “Hadoop above the waterline.” Waterline Data was developed to leverage the power and scalability of Hadoop to automate the inventory of data assets in the data lake and enable self-service with governance, so business users can find and understand the data in a secure and compliant way.
