The implementation of Anjana Data is not reduced to the technical tasks necessary to install the platform, but we seek to cover the end-to-end from a preliminary analysis to the realization of a first use case in production that allows us to obtain the first measurable results. Thus, to achieve this objective, we follow a series of steps that can be grouped into the following blocks:
- Scope of the implementation plan: a business use case is defined, the needs and requirements to be covered, the required connectivities with data platforms and other technologies, the stakeholders involved, and all those additional considerations that may impact the implementation plan.
- Activities: In order to cover this scope it is very important to define all the activities to be performed organized in lines of work and identify the people responsible for carrying them out as well as all those involved and the dependencies between some activities and others.
- Type of deployment and service model: Anjana Data offers a multitude of deployment types and service models to suit the needs of each organization. In addition, each one has a series of policies to comply with, so it is important to define where and how all Anjana Data modules will be deployed (see architecture for more details) and which service is chosen (on-prem, IaaS/PaaS, SaaS).
- Technological scenario: Finally, it is important to identify the required integrations (with identity management systems and data access permissions, with data platforms, with other technologies, …), the required coverage of these integrations (authentication, metadata extraction, active governance, monitoring, sampling, …) and which specific technologies make up the architecture.
Anjana Data’s business model has been adapted to the latest market trends and we break the entry
barrier of this type of platforms with a flexible and scalable licensing model:
- Low initial investment: We eliminate the cost for the acquisition of software licenses and the initial investment corresponds to what has been agreed with the client for the complete implementation of the platform.
- Complete and reliable implementation: Assessment of infrastructure and architecture, design proposal, deployment of all services in production, configuration of the platform based on the defined governance model and initial training plan for immediate use. This considerably reduces time-to-market and time-to-value.
- Pay-per-use: Annual license according to the number of objects governed, with no limit on the number of users. There are several licensing tiers but all include the use of available modules as well as new updates, a basic remote support via ticketing tool and guaranteed access to the Customer Portal with access to all available useful documentation and visibility of the Roadmap.
- Incremental and iterative approach: Based on use cases, we propose a controlled and scaled operationalization, so that you only pay for what you will really use in order to get the most out of your investment as soon as possible.
Anjana Data licenses are based on the number of governed Datasets (with approved or deprecated status) in a single instance of the platform deployed in a production environment. One instance of Anjana Data is sufficient to implement a multi-domain, multi-cluster or multi-environment governance model but the number of instances of Anjana Data will depend on the needs of the organization.
