data.world, the cloud-native enterprise data catalog company, today announced Postgres Proxy. The new capability enables data processing, analytics, and AI/ML tools that support PostgreSQL as a data source to access data via data.world’s federated query engine.
data.world provides both active metadata management and well-governed access to data itself, using a built-in query workbench or through tools like Tableau, Jupyter, R, and Python. With Postgres Proxy, analytics teams and governance teams can apply data.world’s practices of federation, virtualization, and full auditability while accessing data in a wide array of industry-standard analysis tools. data.world’s governed, federated query engine enables fast exploration of data sources in tools, regardless of where the data is hosted. This capability can make data.world the backbone of a data mesh strategy.
