Equalum is used to take legacy data, siloed data and information in the enterprise, and integrate it into a consolidated database that is then used, for the most part, for data transaction, whether it's an actual transaction within the enterprise itself, or a BI dashboard. BI dashboards and analytics are a big area, but overall the main use case is for large data integration across disparate data sources.
The way it's deployed is a combination of on-premises and cloud. It's mainly on-prem, but in Japan and Korea, the adoption of cloud is definitely nowhere near the same as in North America or even Europe. So most of it is deployed on-prem, but there is some hybrid connectivity, in terms of targets being in the cloud and legacy sources being on-prem. Next-gen infrastructure is hosted in the cloud, either by a global partner like AWS, or by their own data infrastructure, in more of a hosted scenario.
The other model that we're looking at with a couple of partners is a managed service model, whereby Equalum is hosted in the partner's cloud and they provide multi-tenancy for their mainly SME customers.
