Technical enhancements in Teradata Loom 2.5 offer users market-leading manageability and security and offers fine grain security model to access Hadoop data, faster data discovery through personalization, and flexible and extensible “measurement” model, Enterprise security is a key requirement for today’s data lake deployments. Teradata Loom now offers automatic authentication and authorization only for users with permission to view and edit specific metadata. The enhancements readily integrate with authentication and authorization protocols like Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Kerberos.
Teradata Loom 2.5 adds support for user personalization, which allows users to flag data that is important and add documentation and comments. This results in a better-organized data lake that is easier to search. Teradata Loom 2.5 adds more flexible ways to profile and manage data by adding statistical capabilities. The enhancements enable external applications and technologies to register and add their own measurements on Hadoop files. For example, Teradata Loom can measure and validate the previously calculated totals of files, the number of records loaded, the time that loading started and stopped. These measurement capabilities ensure data integrity. Teradata Loom Community Edition is available for download.
