MILAN, ITALY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2022 -- Kensu, the data observability company, announces the Kensu Community Edition, supporting the data community with the first free solution to monitor the health of their data pipelines at the source and explore first-hand the potential of this new data solution category.
Speaking at the Voxxed Days Developer conference in Milan [Italy], Andy Petrella, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Kensu, explained: “Data observability is a game changer for data teams. It goes beyond data quality by providing data leaders and practitioners with deep visibility into the health of their data in motion. The fact that today they can get contextual insights in real time about how and when the applications are producing and consuming data will finally allow them to implement trustworthy end-to-end data solutions.”
Gartner® said in a recent report*: “Data observability has now become essential to support as well as augment existing and modern data management architectures. Data observability is the ability of an organization to have a broad visibility of its data landscape (...) to identify, control, prevent, escalate and remediate data outages rapidly within expectable SLAs.
