Apache Hadoop is being adopted across all industries for its ability
to store and process an abundance of new types of data in a modern data architecture. But this “Any Data” architecture presents a challenge when organizations must reconcile data management realities and as they bring existing and new data from disparate platforms under management.

It is designed to exchange metadata with other tools and processes within and outside of the Hadoop stack, thereby enabling platform-agnostic governance.
