Equalum, the leading real-time data ingestion platform, is excited to announce its recognition as a finalist in the Artificial Intelligence and Big Data contest sponsored by Microsoft and Calcalist earlier this month in Tel Aviv.
The contest, held at Calcalist’s annual “Mind the Data 2018” conference, recognizes market-leading contributions in the fields of AI and big data.
Equalum enables real-time analytics for firms across information-rich industries, from manufacturing to financial services, by harnessing the scalability of open-source frameworks Apache Spark and Kafka within an enterprise-grade, end-to-end data ingestion solution.
“Being recognized as a finalist is a tremendous distinction,” says Nir Livneh, CEO of Equalum. “We’re proud to showcase our disruptive approach to real-time data ingestion – the infinite scalability of open source technology, available in a fully-managed solution for enterprises – in a truly global innovation forum alongside other leaders in their fields.”
Mind the Data 2018 highlighted pathbreaking applications of AI across industries, from network security and customer service in the financial services sector to predictive maintenance in manufacturing and search optimization for visual art and music. Equalum’s technology enables enterprises to develop and scale such real-time analytics use cases, by seamlessly ingesting massive quantities of data from operational systems to centralized data stores or lakes.
