2020 has been a tumultuous year for many of us for a myriad of reasons. But with all the challenges 2020 presented, I thought it was important to reflect on some of the fruitful opportunities the year provided, specifically in terms of our partnerships, and celebrate the accomplishments we’ve achieved together as our company continues to grow.
Over the tenure of my time on the Privacera Product Alliance team, I’ve seen tremendous, exciting growth of our partnership program–with three new partnership announcements in the last two months alone! It’s a testament to the work our team is doing and to the level of commitment we’ve made to our customers to continually seek out new, innovative solutions to meet their needs.
In June, we launched our native integration with Databricks to enable fast, efficient on-premise data lake migrations to the cloud, to support regulatory compliance, and to ensure secure data sharing. Since then, we have helped numerous organizations achieve robust security, privacy, and governance, including one of the world’s top apparel companies, as well as a top global appliance manufacturer, health insurance provider, and food delivery service.
As a result, Databricks acknowledged Privacera as a driver of significant customer traction, awarding our team–out of more than 30 technology partners–with the Customer Impact Award at their partner executive summit.
We also hosted, sponsored, and attended many successful events with Databricks, including:
- Spark + AI Summit
- Databricks-AWS Dev Day (featuring special guest Comcast)
- Data & AI Summit Europe
- Roadmap to A Secure, Modern Data Enterprise (featuring our partner Pariveda Solutions)
To kick off our expanding partnership with AWS, we became a Select Technology Partner in July and built a beta version of PrivaceraCloud– our SaaS-based data security and governance platform. Since then, we’ve seen significant customer adoption traction and have worked tirelessly to release PrivaceraCloud for GA in Q1 of 2021 (this is especially exciting for us and our customers, and we can’t wait to see our efforts come to fruition!) Until then, we’ll be continuing our journey with AWS, advancing our tiering by the end of 2020, and preparing for the ambitious year ahead of us.
Continuing our momentum, 2020 culminated in many more exciting events with new partners and existing partners, including:
- Achieving our first marketplace listing with Microsoft Azure (check us out here!)
- Launching an integration with Starburst Data to provide our joint customers a secure infrastructure to run federated queries (be sure to register for our upcoming webinar to see the integration in action and register for Datanova to hear more about our joint offering!)
- Enhancing our breadth of coverage with Snowflake in Privacera Platform 4.0 with new features like Access Workflows and multi-layer tagging.
Though these are the highlights of our rewarding year with our partners, this is only the beginning. We will continue to march forward in 2021 with our current and future partners, seek out new, innovative features and solutions to anticipate our customers’ needs and expectations, and deliver the most value possible to our customers, partners, and the data community.
Thank you all for your continued support, and I look forward to an even more exciting year ahead.
