Cask Data

Why Cask Data?

Cask Data provides the first unified integration platform for big data that cuts down the time to production for data applications and data lakes by 80%.

The 100% open source Cask Data Application Platform (“CDAP”) accelerates time to value from Hadoop through standardized APIs, configurable templates and visual interfaces, and it increases efficiencies through reusable and portable components. CDAP enables IT organizations to empower their business through self-service data, and to remove barriers to innovation as an extensible and future-proof platform. Cask offers enterprise-grade customer support. Major customers and partners include AT&T, Cloudera, Ericsson, Lotame and Salesforce.

CDAP is 100% open-source, highly extensible, and delivers enterprise-class features to help accelerate time to build, deploy, and manage data-centric applications & data lakes on Hadoop and Spark.

To address the needs of data engineers, citizen integrators and business analysts, CDAP offers code-free, self-service user interfaces for data pipelines, data preparation and metadata management, designed to solve common and critical big data challenges.

CDAP removes barriers to innovation as an extensible and future-proof platform that provides consistency across environments and easily integrates with existing MDM, BI, and security solutions.
