Tableau Software and DMG Federal Offer the Public Sector Business Intelligence in a Secure Cloud

Federal IQ Addresses “Cloud First” Approach

Publish Date: December 17, 2012 - 6:00am

DMG Federal, the provider of quality IT and Business Intelligence services and solutions to the Federal Government and commercial clients, has launched Federal IQ, a secure FISMA and DIACAP certified cloud and custom module portal for Federal Government. Federal IQ delivers a secure platform-agnostic cloud framework for business analytics with a full suite of supporting services to agencies, enabling real-time mission critical decision support. The first application moved to the Federal IQ environment is Tableau Software, a powerful visualization tool that makes data accessible to non-specialists and helps decision makers in delivering a visual interface that empowers everyone, not just analysts, to identify actionable data.

The Office of Management and Budget has advocated a “25 Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal Information Management Technology”, a “cloud first” approach that strengthens program management and lightens technology requirements. Agencies across the nation are seeking the increased efficiency and cost control cloud-based solutions offer and Federal IQ addresses these needs.

“Tableau provides an opportunity for us to go to market in the public sector with a secure offering to clients,” said Keith Boyer, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at DMG Federal. “We chose Tableau as a partner for Federal IQ because of its ease of deployment, ease of use, scalability and visualization palate. We now have a value proposition for agencies that not only provides best-in-class analytics, but also relieves them from worry about administration of their IT environment and cost of hardware, software and security.”

Tableau’s ability to work with unstructured Big Data stored in places such as Hadoop and in traditional financial, operational databases made it a natural choice for use in the Federal Government. Federal IQ will also provide a custom module portal built around Tableau that may be used as a community for social media, knowledge base or support mechanism customized specifically for a government agency.

“Government data can be big and complex, but Tableau and DMG Federal’s new Federal IQ solution can help agencies more easily see and understand their data, even big data,” said Elissa Fink, Chief Marketing Officer at Tableau Software. “Tableau’s easy drag and drop interface and native connections to all types of databases, including the cloud, will make it easy for users in the public sector to get more value out of their data and comply with this government mandate.”
