What is a Converged Data Platform?

As the variety of data and processing needs explode, enterprises are embracing various big data technologies to address those specific needs in order to meet the urgent business demands. However, this is creating a new class of big data silos. Big data has even more gravity than classical relational data and therefore these impede collaboration.


A converged data platform is a new approach to provide a single best-in-class data platform for all your big data Hadoop, NoSQL, and event streaming needs.
