The two vendors are launching a new integration combining the DataGalaxy dictionary with Starburst and Trino, the distributed SQL query engine

Boston, Massachusetts – March 29, 2023 – Starburst, the Data Lake analytics platform, announces a technology partnership with DataGalaxy, the industry’s first data knowledge catalog in Europe. As part of the partnership, the two vendors are launching a new integration linking DataGalaxy’s dictionary with Starburst and Trino, the open source distributed SQL query engine.

This integration, based on new Starburst and Trino connectors in DataGalaxy, makes it easier to access data by organizing it into domains and improves federated management of data from multiple sources. Data Products created through Starburst are referenced in DataGalaxy with all their metadata, allowing them to be searched and enriched with a business knowledge layer. Data Products can then be managed and used in Starburst.

“We are proud that DataGalaxy has chosen to connect its platform to Starburst to offer a common solution that simplifies and accelerates the retrieval of enterprise data assets,” explains Martial Coiffe, Starburst Regional Director for Southern Europe. “This is the first integration developed in the French market, which contributes to anchor Starburst in the region, while illustrating our willingness to integrate our technology into the local ecosystem. Collaborating with key industry players such as DataGalaxy is in line with our goal to provide our customers with simplified data discovery and advanced data product management.”

“With Starburst, we enable full self-service management of data products, helping to democratize data access in the enterprise for greater operational agility and to support decision making,” commented Lazhar Sellami, co-founder and CPO of DataGalaxy. “Between Starburst’s ease of access and data federation and DataGalaxy’s business knowledge governance, this integration democratizes data access for all business users and allows them to gain confidence and time-to-market for data product delivery and maintenance.”

“This solution developed by Starburst and DataGalaxy as part of this partnership is particularly well suited for Data Mesh architectures. This integration will improve federated metadata governance and support the entire lifecycle of a Data Product. With this integration, users will be able to create, use and manage the governance of their products, including security, cataloging and referencing of Data Products with all their metadata.”
