How Starburst Enterprise Benefits EMIS-X

Faster Time-to-Insight

EMIS can now provide the appropriate information governance and data permissions to all customers.

Joining Up Data

Aided by Starburst technology, EMIS-X Analytics makes it possible to analyze both primary and secondary care data simultaneously.

Cost Savings

Starburst’s Reader for Delta Lake allows EMIS to run lightning SQL queries at scale while keeping costs down.
