Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of MarkLogic Data Hub Central, our new UI for integrating and managing data using MarkLogic Data Hub. The new UI makes it extremely simple to curate, explore, and share consistent and fit-for-purpose data.
Data Hub Central is available out-of-the-box with MarkLogic Data Hub Software and will soon also be available on MarkLogic Data Hub Service, a leading enterprise cloud data hub. To get started with Data Hub Central standard edition, simply download the latest release of Data Hub Software here.
With the addition of Data Hub Central, MarkLogic is easier to use than ever. But, it’s not just about introducing a new UI — it’s about bringing agile principles to the data layer. It’s about making the whole end-to-end process of integrating and managing data more collaborative, flexible, and reliable.
With traditional data integration, different stakeholders use various tools and processes, resulting in fragmented views of the data and the business. Data Hub Central changes that by providing a shared interface, breaking down both data silos and organizational silos.
Rather than having to rely on IT to serve their data needs, business users and analysts now get direct access to curated data assets. They don’t have to wait for a BI dashboard to populate with stale results before giving feedback. Instead, they can log in to Data Hub Central and, using MarkLogic’s built-in search, just “shop” for the data assets they need.
In one report from McKinsey, around 80 percent of CIOs said they did not get the level of agility and business benefits that they sought through cloud modernization.
With Data Hub Central, data teams can make true cloud productivity gains by making it simple to apply agile principles at the data layer. As explained in an earlier blog post, data teams can start by creating a simple data model to solve the most pressing business problem. That model can evolve iteratively over time – all while abstracting upstream and downstream systems from changes in the model. In this way, Data Hub Central helps teams create durable data assets that enable the hub to serve multiple use cases.
Technically speaking, it was already possible to implement these agile principles using existing MarkLogic. But, the introduction of Data Hub Central changes the game by making the entire end-to-end process simple and easy-to-implement in a UI.
In most organizations, cloud architectures are becoming more complex with the sprawl of data and tools. Not surprisingly, that has led to increasing challenges with security and governance.
Data Hub Central makes the day-to-day process of securing, governing, and sharing data simpler:
