Concurrent, Inc. and BitWise Inc. Partner to Bring ETL to the Big Data Era

BitWise joins the Concurrent Partner Program to Allow Quick, Easy and Cost-Effective Data Migration to Customers to Benefit from Hadoop Investments

SAN FRANCISCO – June 15, 2015 – Concurrent, Inc., the leader in data application infrastructure, and BitWise Inc., a global, end-to-end software consulting organization providing guaranteed, efficient and cost-effective service, today announced a strategic partnership to provide services and tools to enable enterprises to rapidly execute on their big data migration strategies.

As the big data industry continues to grow and more organizations enter into the business of data, enterprises have begun to entertain the idea of leveraging new data sources for business value. However, enterprises are often stymied in their efforts to explore more innovative big data approaches by legacy ETL tools that cannot deliver on the requirements of 21st century data-focused businesses.

This partnership between Concurrent, whose Cascading platform and Driven solution delivers the ability to create data processes that can be adjusted, dispatched and scheduled easily, and BitWise, who is focused on data migration for production-grade applications, enables enterprises to migrate ETL workloads to Cascading. This allows organizations to now operationalize their data integration strategies more quickly and in a scalable fashion, while significantly reducing licensing and operations costs.

BitWise has more than a decade of experience working with ETL solutions, and has developed data migration best practices and integration techniques from working on ETL projects for a wide range of Fortune 500 companies.

Concurrent provides the proven data application platform for reliably building and deploying data applications on Hadoop. With more than 275,000 downloads a month, Cascading is the enterprise data application platform of choice and has become the de-facto standard for building data-centric applications. Driven is the industry’s leading application performance management product for the data-centric enterprise, built to provide business and operational visibility and control to organizations that need to deliver operational excellence. Together, Cascading and Driven deliver a one-two punch to knock out the complexity and provide a proven reliable solution for enterprises to execute their big data strategies.

To learn more, BitWise’s executive vice president, Shahab Kamal, and Concurrent’s vice president of field engineering, Supreet Oberoi, will be delivering a joint, complimentary webinar on offloading ETL on Hadoop. Taking place Wednesday, June 24 at 11 a.m. PDT/2 p.m. EDT, the 30-minute webinar will discuss how to jumpstart your ETL offloading project. To register, please visit

“There is a common misconception that there is a one-size-fits-all approach to enterprise data migration. However, there are simpler, more supportive methods than those facilitated by proprietary ETL solutions. This partnership between BitWise and Concurrent delivers just that – a robust solution that addresses this active pain point for enterprise IT teams. We are excited to team our expertise with Concurrent’s tools to help enterprises finally benefit from their big data/Hadoop investments.”

“For too long enterprises have been constrained in executing on their big data strategies by the cost, limited scalability and inflexible feature sets of proprietary solutions. We look forward to joining forces with BitWise to knock down these barriers, and help enterprises to process not only their existing data, but to also leverage new data sources, such as logs and social media, to allow them to finally enter into the business of data.”

– Gary Nakamura, CEO, Concurrent, Inc.
