Okera is data access management for enterprise-scale operations with complex technical and organizational infrastructure. It enables data stewards, analysts or scientists, and application developers alike to engage with any company data appropriate to their role, using their preferred querying and visualization tools. Okera accomplishes this while obeying security- and regulatory-based access limitations.
Whatever your storage or streaming environments, Okera brings your data together with a common retrieval platform, which includes cataloging services such as a schema registry, while expanding and simplifying overall access without exposing data improperly. The platform provides largely self-service access to data consumers through consistent schemas, intelligent governance, and familiar interfaces.
Organizations these days are drowning in data – from web analytics, marketing campaigns, IoT events, HR data, and more. However, making effective use of this data for business purposes is still something of an unsolved challenge, in major part due to the need to provide access to this data in a secure and responsible way.
Your data can do more. It can be used by analysts and data scientists to drive innovation. It can help you discover untapped markets, unseen opportunities, and unproductive workflows. It can change the way your business and the world works.
The Okera platform tackles the hardest issues behind data access and governance across hybrid and multi-cloud environments—giving you the ability to explore your data’s potential like never before.
Our vision is to enable self-service analytics with responsible data access so that everyone can benefit from the potential of data in the enterprise.
On a more technical level, the Okera Platform is divided into services that are accessible for clients and a few other services that are only accessible internally by administrators or other services.
This is intentionally the case to reduce complexity and concentrate access for clients to just a few locations. The following diagram shows all of the platform services in context.
