Pacific Life, NHS Greater Manchester and Old Mutual amongst winners of Matillion Emerald Awards 2023


Matillion, data productivity provider, today announces the winners of its annual Emerald Awards.

Recognizing enterprises in five categories, the Emerald Awards honor data visionaries, ranging from prominent software providers to elite consumer brands. Their stories emphasize the journey to acquiring valuable and actionable data insights leveraging Matillion. 

Growing complex volumes of data, organizations are held back by lack of resources leading to increased manual workload and an excessive financial expenditure. 

Leveraging Matillion to assist with the automation, transformation and orchestration of data pipelines, this year's honorees were able to overcome intricate data challenges to provide actionable insights. 

Impact Award winner, US insurance firm Pacific Life, surpassed an extraordinary financial target within 45 days, as opposed to the expected annual timeframe, by leveraging Matillion. Implementing the low-code ELT tool to extract, load and transform data through automated pipelines delivered business ready data, to both internal and external consumers. Utilizing Matillion allowed the immediate expansion of operations, as managing increased demand became effortless. 

“It’s incredible to see how organizations across the globe are using Matillion to enhance efficiency and maximize their data,” said Mark Johnston, Chief Marketing Officer, Matillion.

“The stories of our 2023 Emerald Award winners showcased transformational change not only to their data teams but to their customers. It’s clear to see that these enterprises are paving the way in data productivity. We are delighted to be a part of their journey and celebrate their successes.”
