Yesterday, at the 2022 fall summit, data.world announced its inaugural Parliament Award recipients. The awards recognize customer excellence and innovation across six categories: Data Discovery,  Agile Data Governance, Cloud Data Migration, Data Mesh, DataOps, and  Semantic Layer. 

“We are thrilled to be able to recognize some of the most innovative, data-driven companies from across a broad range of industries including media, logistics, banking, and high tech,” said Brett Hurt, co-founder and CEO at data.world. “That diversity of industry is matched  by the wide breadth of use cases our data catalog supports due to its inherent flexibility and unique knowledge graph foundation.”

The winners were:

Data Discovery – Prologis

Prologis uses data.world to make it easy for employees to search and discover the trusted data assets necessary to make informed business decisions. The global logistics real estate leader values data-centricity and collaboration and leverages the data.world platform across multiple departments.

Agile Data Governance – WPP

WPP uses data.world to democratize data access, enable curation of datasets, and promote data literacy and collaboration across its 100,000+ team members. The creative transformation company has deployed more than 500 datasets and tools within the catalog and runs a number of launch events to drive user adoption across its global workforce. 

Cloud Data Migration – Leading Provider of Investment and Business Solutions for Independent Financial Advisors

data.world works with the IT team at a leading provider of investment and business solutions for independent financial advisors to migrate its data ecosystem to a more modern deployment. Despite a complex existing infrastructure and interdependencies, the customer team  at this institution uses the data.world catalog to organize and understand their data environment and drive a smooth transition to the cloud.

Data Mesh – OneWeb

OneWeb partners with data.world to make the information contained across its 30+ Snowflake tenants more accessible and consumable for data engineers and analysts working across distributed domains. The company’s approach to  data mesh is supported by data.world’s knowledge graph which enables semantic search. 

DataOps – The world’s number one job site

The world’s number one job site selected data.world to replace its existing data catalog and unify all of its enterprise metadata. Through the successful establishment of their centralized catalog, the data team empowers users across the enterprise to conduct self-service data discovery. This has allowed the company to bring focus to its data governance and security programs, which ultimately will allow the company to derive more insights from its  enterprise metadata.    

Semantic Layer – Penguin Random House UK

Penguin Random House UK constructed a glossary containing thousands of business terms to better define its Bibliographic (book), Sales and Marketing metadata. The glossary, which connects real-world concepts to underlying data, provides users with a single reference for the location of any data set, and a single source of truth for data understanding.
