Product Overview

A complete, end-to-end solution for self-service data delivery.

Podium is a turnkey software platform that radically simplifies and accelerates how companies manage, prepare, and deliver enterprise data from ingestion through delivery. It's a complete enterprise data marketplace out-of-the-box, and can be deployed quickly either on premises or in the cloud. Using Podium's business-friendly GUI, users simply "Shop For Data" — gaining the unprecedented ability to find, understand, and prepare the data they need themselves, on-demand.

 
Step 01

Data Ingestion

All Sources & Formats

Podium's powerful ingestion framework allows you to bring data from any and all sources into the marketplace with ease — even complex or dirty data sources like legacy or mainframe files.

 

Complete Validation

Podium validates all data upon ingest to ensure new data coming into the marketplace is clean and complies with anticipated formats and data types. Problematic or dirty data is flagged and set aside for further analysis or remediation.

Automatic Profiling

Podium automatically performs a complete statistical analysis of each new data set upon ingest, giving users instantaneous visibility into the content, structure, and nature of every new data asset entering the marketplace.  New profiling information—such as the most common values in a field—is added into Podium’s metadata alongside technical and business metadata.

Protects Data Quality

Podium fixes a range of data quality problems which if left untreated would lead to dirty data entering the marketplace. These include embedded field and record delimiters, character type conversions, non-standard data types, and multiple record formats in a single file.

Step 02

Data Discovery

Shop for Data

Podium provides a complete catalog of data in the marketplace based on rich metadata, so finding and understanding the data is fast and easy. Business analysts can simply shop for the data they need on-demand.

 

Data Curation

Users are able to search, create, edit, and share metadata properties, enabling crowd-sourced data curation that enriches the marketplace with user insights into the data.

 
Step 03

Data Preparation

Make Data Business-Ready

Combine Data from
Raw to Ready

Podium preserves data at every step as it progresses from raw to ready. Users can combine any combination of raw data, semi-processed data or “gold standard” enterprise-compliant data to create custom data sets that perfectly matches their information and analytic needs.

 
Step 04
