    Powerful processing

    Our platform leverages Delta Lake, powered by Apache Spark™. It processes ETL (Extract-Transform-Load) workloads up to 48% faster than traditional SQL-based ETLs, and once data is onboarded, it provides up to 50x faster time-to-insights compared to traditional data lake technology.

We seamlessly integrate data science capabilities, including AI, natural language processing, machine learning and tensor flow, into the pipeline to extract additional value from the data. The result is a single source of truth about what’s happening in the healthcare ecosystem.
