No Comments on NoSQL databases can now use Hackolade’s CLI

With GDPR quickly approaching, Hackolade has announced its Command Line

Interface (CLI) to help companies with the pending GDPR (General Data

Protection Regulation) regulatory compliance (scheduled for May 25, 2018),

along with overall corporate data governance needs.


The CLI is currently available for the following NoSQL databases: MongoDB, Couchbase, DynamoDB, and Azure CosmosDB.

GDPR mandates compliance for personal data handling for any company within the European Union (EU) but also for companies (including companies in the U.S.) that have any business interaction or transaction within the EU; making this regulation a requirement for myriad organizations around the world.

In other words, companies with privacy-related data in NoSQL databases can now use Hackolade’s CLI to demonstrate proper handling with just a few steps: reverse-engineering their databases, identifying attributes and related fields, generating documentation, and daily monitoring to ensure compliance is being maintained.

Hackolade customers can leverage this CLI capability with a nightly batch process to identify attributes and structures that may have appeared in the data since the previous run. During their nightly batch of the reverse-engineering function, a much larger dataset is queried as a basis for document sampling, making schema inference more precise.
