Solix Technologies was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Solix is a comprehensive Enterprise Data Management vendor with 200+ large enterprise customers across the globe including Citigroup, Pepsico, Unilever, Swiss Re, Sanofi, Starbucks and LinkedIn. Their top vertical industry focus is banking and insurance, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, though of course they have many customers outside of these.
Solix have recently released version 3 of their flagship product Solix Common Data Platform (CDP). This covers functionality in data integration, data quality management, data governance, data discovery and data analytics. CDP has over 140 connectors to a wide variety of data sources, both structured and unstructured, which are used to populate metadata into CDP’s own repository. The product can auto-classify data items in the discovery phase, detecting certain types of data that may require special attention, such as payroll data. Certain data, such as personally identifiable data, may require masking for privacy reasons, for example.
Their products have extensive search capabilities that are role-based, so some users may be able to see more data than others. CDP is particularly strong in handling archiving and retention of data according to policies that can be established; for example, certain data may be archived after a certain period of time.
Future versions of the product are likely to see further AI augmented operations as well as greater visibility of metadata to 3rd party tools. Solix is a mature and well-established data governance product with extensive functionality, and should be considered by customers looking for solutions in that space, especially for use cases where there is an emphasis of data life cycle management, archiving and retention.
