Metanautix provides a bottom-up approach to federating query and blending data in a BI market that is gradually extending to Hadoop.


  • Metanautix provides an innovative approach that can simplify the querying of disparate sources of data sitting in Hadoop or other sources.
  • Its tool, Quest, provides a “data compute engine” that federates queries, blends data, and offers high-performance analytics through its own visual SQL tool, or through popular BI tools such as Tableau.
  • While it faces potentially strong competition from established brands from the database and ETL worlds, Metanautix offers the benefit of combining data integration with query and high-performance analytics in the same tool.

Features and Benefits

  • Introduces a new software provider offering a new approach to federated query designed for business end users.
  • Explains how Metanautix compares with query federation offerings from database/data warehouse providers and data integration tool providers.
