Imply introduces Project Shapeshift, the evolution of the Druid experience.
Imply, an organization founded by the creators of Apache Druid, recently announced the release of Project Shapeshift, bringing developers and organizations a Druid experience that reimagines the process of building modern analytics applications. With this, a series of capabilities will be released throughout the next year in order to transform the Druid experience to better fit a cloud-native, developer-centric world.
This announcement came at Druid Summit and was given by an original creator of Apache Druid and Imply co-founder and CTO, Gian Merlino. The focus of Project Shapeshift is built upon three pillars: cloud-native, simple, and complete.
With this, the Druid experience will be simplified and the architecture will be extended to become an end-to-end solution for modern analytics applications. This architecture expansion will also include introducing a new multi-stage, decoupled query layer integrated with the core Druid database engine.
