ADA is our Secret Weapon for Big Data.


ADA’s fully-managed Big Data as a Service helps technical teams deliver data and analytics projects quickly. Data engineers free up time to focus on more strategic activities when they use ADA for big data and data warehousing on Microsoft Azure and AWS.

As-a-service solutions for data warehousing, data lakes and data science are configured and ready to use in a few hours. Hybrid deployments (cloud+on-prem) take about two weeks. ADA is designed to fit seamlessly into any data architecture, supporting a wide variety of analytics applications, tools and data sources.

ADA embeds a variety of cloud services, open source and best-of-breed software from tech partners such as Cloudera, Microsoft, Amazon, RStudioand others. Solutions include cloud infrastructure, data and analytics engines, data movers, enterprise security – as well as all operations, platform management and support – delivered at a predictable rate. Free up precious resources, use proven engines and get the best price-performance in the cloud, from a team with significant enterprise expertise.

Data engineering and IT teams use ADA to:
  • Quickly satisfy business demands for big data and analytics
  • Reduce big data and data warehousing costs by 50-80%
  • Use the cloud securely without dev-ops, special skills or admin time
  • Retain management and monitoring control over cloud services
  • Develop hybrid architectures to leverage the cloud + on-prem systems

“We’ve gone from zero to 100 miles an hour to start by choosing ADA, running on Azure. First, because it’s secure. We’ve had the normal corporate security checks. The ADA platform came through that with the flying colors, especially because of the Gateway service and the end-to-end encryption. We’re also provided assurance that it’s also encrypted at rest. The data governance is there as well, to actually make sure that we know who is accessing the data, and we know who isn’t accessing the data as well.”
