Elastic Intelligence, the developer and marketer of the Connection Cloud, a revolutionary PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) platform, and Tableau Software, the global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence software, are partnering to bring Tableau users the industry’s easiest and fastest access to SaaS data.
“It’s a best-of-both-worlds partnership. Tableau has made its mark as the leader in fast data analytics and we hear many of our customers want to access SaaS data directly, rather than having to stage or move it into a data warehouse first. The Connection Cloud answers this need by accessing data in the cloud directly, where it resides, helping us fulfill our customer promise of fast visualization,” said Dan Jewett, Vice President of Product Management at Tableau Software.
“At the Tableau Customer Conference last month we were thrilled at the number of users who had an ‘aha’ moment when they learned about The Connection Cloud’s data connection services,” said Elastic Intelligence CEO Ajay Singh. “Customers saw how easy it was to access their SaaS data and pull it into their Tableau application. They were ready to try it immediately!”
The Connection Cloud solves the pain point of SaaS users needing to access their data for reporting and analysis. With The Connection Cloud, Tableau users can access all of their SaaS data in minutes, from where it resides, in real-time, for an economical, unlimited monthly subscription. It is a compelling alternative to building a data warehouse and implementing data integration tools that take months, and have budgets that easily run into six figures.
How The Connection Cloud helps Tableau Users be Fast and Current:
•Enter the Cloud: Tableau is differentiated in the marketplace by its simplicity. It takes just minutes, using data residing in on-premise systems such as SAP, Oracle, or existing data warehouses or memory store systems, to create rich visualizations. The Connection Cloud essentially enhances Tableau’s offering by providing real-time access to SaaS data in the cloud. This means Tableau users now have fast, easy access to the ever-increasing amount of data now living in the cloud.
•Real-Time Access: Tableau users can pull data, in real-time, from Netsuite, Intacct, Zendesk, Zuora, Facebook, and a growing list of other sources. Users can access exactly the data fields they need within just minutes so they can get precisely the report they want. And for an updated view, they just “refresh”.
•Low Budget-High Value: The Connection Cloud is the most affordable, SaaS connection service available in the marketplace, based on single user or multiple user subscription. For the first time, Tableau users have a low cost yet highly effective solution to pull cloud data into their visualization, fast.
