Attunity Wins $1.1 Million Deal with Global Payments Processing Leader to Enable Real-Time Big Data Analytics

Customer selects Attunity Replicate for universal data ingest for Kafka and Hadoop

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, January 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of data integration and Big Data management software solutions, announced today that a global payments processing leader (the "Customer") has signed an agreement for $1.1 million (in license, services and 5 years of maintenance and support) for Attunity Replicate to enable real-time Big Data analytics in its Hadoop-based data lake environment. Leveraging universal data ingest and replication, the Customer expects to monetize data collected from transactional systems to generate new revenue streams, as well as improve merchant satisfaction by reducing their costs related to credit checks.

With data volumes increasing quickly, this Europe-based customer realized that its traditional analytics platforms were not able to scale and process data in a timely fashion. To enable high speed and scalability, the Customer built a new data lake leveraging Hadoop, and sought out a real-time data ingest solution. The data ingest technology needed to be competent handling high volumes of data from many systems without requiring large development resources. Therefore, the Customer selected Attunity Replicate, a universal, easy-to-use, real-time data ingest platform that can scale with data growth and support the Customer's diverse data platforms including Oracle, SQL Server, Kafka and Hadoop. 

"More and more, global corporations are turning to us to help them accelerate and streamline their Data Lake environments - a strategy which is helping them turn their data assets into new sources of revenue and competitive advantage," explained Shimon Alon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Attunity. "Attunity Replicate enables such initiatives with its universal and real-time data ingest solution supporting many data sources. Being continuously selected for such large-scale initiatives demonstrates our product's superior capabilities and our technology leadership as we focus on satisfying the evolving needs of such global companies."
