Podium Data Receives 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Award

LOWELL, Mass., Sept. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Podium Data Inc. has been named as a 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Awards honoree. The award recognizes innovative big data initiatives that have delivered significant business value.

Podium was selected by the editors of Computerworld for its central role in delivering a production-ready, enterprise-grade data lake. The TD Bank Enterprise Data Provisioning Platform is helping the bank achieve its vision of next-generation agile banking by giving 80,000 business unit employees on-demand self-service access to data through a secure, enterprise-scale data marketplace.

“Big data has the potential to help organizations dramatically expand business users’ access to enterprise data and analytics to drive smarter, more agile business decision-making. But to realize this potential, big data needs to be implemented within a framework of enterprise-scale security, data governance and related capabilities,” said Paul Barth, CEO and co-founder of Podium Data. “We are delighted that our turnkey product allowed TD Bank to stand up its data lake in less than six months and to deliver a solution that meets the enterprise-grade requirement of a large bank while also providing immediate ROI for its business units.” 

“We are pleased to announce the 2016 Computerworld Data+ Editors’ Choice Awards honorees,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “This year’s 20 winning organizations have used data analytics to achieve a wide spectrum of gains, from improving business profitability to uncovering trends in criminal activity and reducing energy use — even keeping trains running on schedule. We’re continually impressed with the new and inventive analytics projects at organizations big and small uncovered through our Data+ program. This year’s winning organizations are at the forefront of applying data analytics to deliver both business and societal benefits.”
