iTWireTV Interview: Zetaris CEO Vinay Samuel explains how to analyse your data, everywhere it's stored, all at once


GUEST INTERVIEW: Zetaris lets you instantly join and access data silos virtually, across your whole data ecosystem, whilst ensuring data governance and security by removing the need to move data, analysing it at its source. Whether it's in the cloud, on-premise, or multiple devices or anywhere, you get a single, unified view of your data, and Zetaris founder and CEO Vinay Samuel joins iTWireTV to explain the benefits - and more!

Zetaris. Vinay Samuel, having a rich and deep history in the data analysis space across some of the world's top tech companies, realised in 2013 there was a better way to analyse data, disrupting silos, data lakes and more, dramatically speeding up query times, and dramatically lowering costs and TCO, while exponentially ramping up ROI with a system that truly is a next generation enterprise database and analytics platform.

Trusted by thousands of users, connecting to disparate data sources, solving some of the hardest data problems worldwide, and soon to launch a marketplace that adds even more functionality across a huge number of industry standard platforms, Zetaris enables connection to existing data sources without moving, ingesting or duplicating data, speeding up time-to-insight, eliminating data redundancy and creating a single, unified view of your data.

The company's Networked Data Platform is an SQL-based analytical engine powered by your existing data infrastructure, connecting to all the disparate data sources, ingesting only metadata to create a virtual schema, reinforcing data security, and both optimising and accelerating query performance. It enables, rather than replaces, your existing infrastructure.

This means no need to "rip and replace," allowing you to realise the full value of your existing IT investments, so legacy investments are preserved and leveraged - future-proofing your data architecture, gaining all the benefits of data lakes without any of the costs or complexity, while adding unthinkable new levels of flexibility. Even better is the ability to deploy Zetaris in minutes or hours - not months!

This is a truly revolutionary and positively disruptive technology, eliminating vendor lock-in and delivering real-time analytics, enabling your business to reach the next level of granular insight, consume data using your favourite analytics tools, and utilise any data tool for business intelligence, data analytics and data applications. Common use cases include:

  • Business “Self-service” access and query of data in the data lake and elsewhere
  • Modern Decentralised Data Warehouse
  • Single Queryable View of Multiple Data Sources
  • Data Driven Applications
  • Migration to the cloud
  • Data Mesh
  • Data Science
  • Cloud cost reduction
  • Data sharing – Data Exchange
  • Cross-board data joining
  • AI Data Applications

My video interview with Vinay Samuel is embedded directly below, followed by a summary of the topics we spoke about, so please watch, and read on!

  • I started by introducing Vinay, and asked him to explain when Zetaris started, and the products and services that Zetaris offers in 2022.

  • Vinay explained the insight that led to the company's founding, the story behind the name Zetaris, Vinay's history in the world of tech after he moved to Australia at an early age (after which he got his first computer), how the company started in a garage, and why Vinay turned down a million dollar salary package to take his destiny in his own hands, instead to revolutionise data as we know it.

  • With Asia a hotbed of innovation, and no doubt plenty of opportunities in India too, Vinay explained why he decided to found Zetaris in Australia.

  • We then discussed customer success stories and the results they are achieving.

  • After this, we looked at where Zetaris will be in a couple of years, how quantum technologies will make Zetaris even better in the future, and what Zetaris might look like in the 2030s when the metaverse and AR/extended reality glasses will be as commonplace as the smartphones and tablets we use today.

  • Vinay shared great advice received in life, and his final message to iTWire viewers and readers, and to his current and future customers and partners.

So, to learn more about the impressive Zetaris platform, to meet Vinay and learn about his remarkable journey, and to get some great lessons in business, please watch the video interview with Vinay Samuel above!

Finally, inspired by the profound and practically perfect Daniels-directed Michelle Yeoh masterpiece, here’s how I’d describe Zeraris, its benefits and its raison-d’être in an alliteratively re-imagined Renaissance re-thinking:

Zetaris bestows upon its users immense power - delivering disruptively and almost divine-like data superpowers!

These let you easily enable essential insights, impressively augment analysis to help achieve ever greater goals, helping you build businesses that offer solutions that hearten the soul and dutifully deliver vivid value.

Naturally, this is intelligently infused with clever creativity, along with inspired and imaginative innovation that powerfully uplifts performance, genuinely giving and gifting users and organisations tangible true-blue benefits in time, treasure and technological transformation.

The end result is moving masterfully towards ever evolving information enlightenment, where a dramatically Zetaris-upgraded "whole" is empowered by so much more than just the sum of its parts, in an almost magical way - never before seen this proficiently or powerfully.

This is done across every platform, dataset and data-type imaginable, at warp speeds, shifting perceptions that teleport thinking from the ways things were done in the past to a dynamic new normal that almost unimaginably redefines what is possible, whether with data or otherwise.

When you are at one with your data, which encompasses everything you and your organisation does and knows about itself and everyone it interacts with within its universe of reality, which continues growing with every passing nanosecond, you start to truly understand what it is like to access your data on an everything, everywhere, all at once basis, as Michelle Yeoh's hit movie so ably parallels.

Zetaris unlocks the key to a much greater understanding of your company's reality, unleashing new potential and neo-opportunity.

Suddenly your reality is augmented by your own dramatically upgraded metaverse of information, and ensures it is ready to interface with every other digital -- and one day quantum-powered -- metaverse around it.

It really is impressive and eliminates information inequality and oblivious obfuscation by making it all so easily discoverable, accessible and actionable.

You’ll learn a great deal more in the video above and have a lot of fun doing it as we undertake a fascinating journey of discovery together, so please scroll up and press, so we can all play!
