Key Considerations for Evaluating a Modern Data Platform

Data platforms are the foundation for successful data applications—and for helping people turn data into insights they can use to achieve their goals. To handle the needs of today’s demanding data applications, your data platform must be flexible, scalable, and versatile. So how do you find a modern data platform that takes advantage of the latest advances in cloud functionality to reduce the burden on product development teams as they develop, deploy, maintain, and enhance data applications?

This white paper explores six critical elements to consider when evaluating your data platform options, and how they help your development teams be more efficient and effective:

  • Selecting the right cloud environment
  • Supporting multiple data types
  • Separating storage and compute resources
  • Simplifying data sharing
  • Extending data applications
