A quickly growing data security, privacy, compliance, and governance software provider found itself facing a significant hurdle: their cutting-edge data discovery algorithm couldn't easily work with the systems their customers already used. To keep growing and attracting new clients, they needed a swift solution to improve how their software could integrate with a variety of other metadata management technologies.

Choosing Premier for the Solution

The reason they turned to Premier was clear: Premier had a strong track record of engineering seamless integrations for Fortune 500 organizations and other leading data platform solutions. With three decades of expertise in making legacy and modern technologies work together, Premier was the standout partner for this initiative.

Setting Project Goals

The goal for this initiative was twofold.  The project's main aim was to create bi-directional integrations with Alation and Informatica EDC. These two initial integrations would enable the Client’s data discovery algorithm to create a unified data catalog that includes sensitive and PII information in common customer environments. The secondary aspect of the project would set the foundation for rapidly incorporating additional integrations into the core product, enabling the Client’s data engineering team to continue focusing on improving their core product's data discovery capabilities.

Outcome: A Game Changer

Since the initial engagement, the partnership has continued to expand the product’s integration capabilities to accelerate the implementation process and serve their customer’s increasingly complex data privacy, security, and governance requirements. The results helped propel this prominence in the marketplace:

  • It earned a spot as Gartner Magic Quadrant leader.
  • Household names like American Airlines, Discover, and Dell came on board as clients, drawn by how well the software could connect with tools they already use.
  • Foundation is set to enable exponential increase in integration capabilities through a soon-to-be-released marketplace.
