GRAU DATA Partners with KNIME to Enable Easy & Intuitive Analysis of Metadata at Scale
Schwäbisch-Gmünd, 13. July 2023 – GRAU DATA, a company specializing in metadata mining, and the data analytics leader KNIME have entered into a new partnership with the goal to empower successful big metadata analytics via a no-code/low-code approach.
GRAU DATA’s Metadata-hub enables users to explore, search, find, sort, filter and group unstructured file metadata. The upcoming KNIME integration will ensure that all of the same functionality is accessible via KNIME’s intuitive no-code/low-code interface. This empowers users from all backgrounds and expertises to access GRAU DATA’s powerful capabilities and run metadata science at the highest level. Also, thanks to KNIME’s end-to-end platform, users can operationalize their analysis by using KNIME to train, validate, and deploy their solutions as reports, data apps or REST APIs.
GRAU DATA Metadata-Hub makes it possible to discover and leverage thousands of previously unknown or unused metadata from files. The software recognizes, analyzes and processes embedded metadata from unstructured data on file systems of any size. It can process over 400 file formats and extract more than 100,000 different metadata tags in a very short time. Thus the acquired information creates more transparency of contexts and relationships between files and the data they contain. The Metadata-Hub is a key component in unlocking the value of unstructured data by allowing for efficient search, aggregation and classification of files.
KNIME Software empowers organizations to create, deploy, monitor and manage analytics models; as well as share insights through data apps and services. The free and open source KNIME Analytics Platform provides an intuitive, no-code/low-code interface that empowers data and business experts from across experience levels and disciplines to create analytics of any level of complexity, from spreadsheet automation to ETL to machine learning. The commercial product, KNIME Business Hub, enables teams to collaborate and productionize data science solutions, making data-driven decision making pervasive throughout any organization.
“Previously, Data Science was a task for dedicated specialists and programmers. Combining the Metadata-Hub with KNIME means bringing together high-level automated metadata-mining with a programming-free data science platform. With this partnership, a whole new world is opened up to users, enabling them to leverage their previously unused/inaccessible but highly valuable information,” explains Adriana Grau, Strategic Account Manager at GRAU DATA. “One hundred percent of the Metadata Hub’s full functionality can be accessed in KNIME workflows. For data scientists this marks the start of a new era in dealing with unstructured data.”
“KNIME makes analytics of all types accessible to more people throughout organizations–accelerating initiatives to scale data usage. We’re looking forward to expanding our partner ecosystem to include domain experts, like the team at GRAU DATA,” said Kilian Thiel, Head of Strategic Partnerships at KNIME.
