Databricks to Acquire Arcion, Top Real-Time Enterprise Data Replication Provider

Arcion

Arcion’s Connectors Streamline and Speed Up Data Ingestion from Enterprise Databases into the Databricks Lakehouse Platform

Databricks to purchase Arcion, an enterprise data replication company, for over $100 million, expanding data ingestion options for the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.

Data Lakehouse Platforms have emerged as the de facto standard for enterprise data and AI platforms. However, these data platforms are only as valuable as the data in them. Ingesting data from existing databases and applications remains complicated, fragile, and costly. Troves of important data sit not only in transactional databases such as Oracle, MySQL, and Postgres, but also in SaaS applications such as Salesforce, SAP, and Workday. According to a recent MIT Technology Review Insights and Databricks survey of senior data and technology executives (“Laying the foundation for data- and AI-led growth”), businesses still suffer from many siloed systems; 34% have 10+ systems, and of the largest companies, more than 80% have 10+ systems to juggle. 

To build analytical dashboards, data applications, and AI models, data needs to be replicated from the systems of record like CRM, ERP, and enterprise apps to the Lakehouse

This acquisition will enable Databricks to natively provide a scalable, easy-to-use, and cost-effective solution to ingest data from various enterprise data sources. Building on a scalable change data capture (CDC) engine, Arcion offers connectors for over 20 enterprise databases and data warehouses. The integration will simplify ingesting such data either continuously or on-demand into the lakehouse, fully integrated with the enterprise security, governance, and compliance capabilities of the Databricks platform. 

“To build analytical dashboards, data applications, and AI models, data needs to be replicated from the systems of record like CRM, ERP, and enterprise apps to the Lakehouse,” said Ali Ghodsi, Co-Founder and CEO at Databricks.”

”Arcion’s real-time, large-scale CDC data pipeline technology extends Databricks’ market-leading ETL solution to include replication of operational data in real-time,” said Gary Hagmueller, CEO of Arcion.”
