April 6, 2011 – Producers of the Queplix Virtual Data Manager platform – a software framework that lets users extract data and metadata from certain source database applications for use in data integration and harmonization with other database applications – has announced an Application Software Blade for Hadoop.

We found this interesting piece of news on Network Computing in their article, “Queplix Links On-Premise Apps To The Cloud.” The software provides a lightweight way for organizations to bridge together separate data sources into a centralized access system.

Even though a lot of larger data platforms are getting attention, essentially they are still silos – just larger. The integration aspect is not there. Queplix Corp. has met the need of organizations who want to merge multiple data sources.
