Tableau Software and Vertica Join Forces to Deliver Data Visualization and Analytics on Super-Sized Databases in Cloud Architectures and in Internal Datacenters

October 30th Web seminar showcases Tableau's ability to quickly and easily visualize large Vertica Analytic Databases

SEATTLE, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Tableau Software, the global leader in fast analytics and data visualization software, and Vertica Systems, Inc, maker of high performance analytic databases, today announced that the companies have teamed to offer Vertica's customers access to Tableau's fast visual analytic capabilities. Tableau's award-winning products, Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server, can now connect directly to the Vertica Analytic Database and Vertica Analytic Database for the Cloud without requiring any additional deployment efforts other than licensing and installing Tableau -- typically accomplished in minutes. The companies will showcase the new solution during a Webinar on October 30, which will feature current healthcare analytics customer, hMetrix.

As a result of this partnership, business people and their organizations can use the Vertica Analytic Database with Tableau's visual business intelligence and analytic capabilities to rapidly store, explore and analyze huge amounts of data. Insights gained from these new data visualization capabilities will help mutual customers make better decisions, compete more effectively and deliver valuable business results.

"Now with Tableau, employees, analysts and everyday knowledge workers at organizations using Vertica have access to a rapid and easy way to visually discover meaningful and useful information that may otherwise lay hidden in the large amounts of data they are analyzing," said David Menninger, Vertica's VP of marketing and product management. "Whether Vertica is in the cloud or in a traditional datacenter, Tableau's easy-to-use, unparalleled data visualization capabilities make exploring data extremely simple, and its enterprise features meet the demands of our customers."

hMetrix is currently using Tableau and Vertica together to analyze large volumes of Medicare, Medicaid and commercially insured administrative information. This analysis helps employers, hospitals, insurers, pharmaceutical companies and government agencies develop strategies that increase the quality of patient care and economic outcomes.

"Providing strategic advice to healthcare practitioners and policy makers is very challenging, and there's nothing more persuasive than hard data," said George Chalissery, hMetrix CEO. "Using Tableau and Vertica together gives us and our clients a competitive edge by being able to query data in an ad-hoc way 70 times faster than with our old database. Tableau visualizes findings in a way that helps clients immediately see paths to better patient care and profitability."

Vertica Analytic Database 2.5 is the only analytic database built from scratch to handle today's heavy business intelligence workloads. In customer benchmarks, Vertica has answered queries against terabytes of data 50 to 200 times faster than competing row-oriented databases and specialized analytic hardware. Vertica enables more people to analyze more data faster, using less hardware and disk space at a fraction of the cost of other products.

Tableau's product suite helps people and organizations see and understand their data. Tableau Desktop connects directly to a wide assortment of data sources and integrates data exploration and visualization to make analytics fast and easy for nearly anyone of any experience level. Tableau Server extends the power of Tableau's analytical capabilities across organizations by providing Web-based sharing and collaboration capabilities. The company's products have already attracted more than 10,000 licensed users in companies from one-person businesses to the world's largest organizations.

"Vertica has impressive capabilities. Its deep expertise working with customers and its high-performance database management systems that run in the cloud as well as in traditional environments are a perfect match to Tableau's innovative yet affordable software," said Kevin Brown, VP of alliances and partnerships for Tableau. "Together, Vertica and Tableau are enabling a new kind of business intelligence solution that's not only fast and easy to deploy, but that increases user satisfaction and the bottom line."

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
The emerging Internet of Everything creates tremendous new opportunities for customer engagement and business model innovation. However, enterprises must overcome a number of critical challenges to bring these new solutions to market. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Martin, CTO/CIO at nfrastructure, outlined these key challenges and recommended approaches for overcoming them to achieve speed and agility in the design, development and implementation of Internet of Everything solutions wi...
Thomas Bitman of Gartner wrote a blog post last year about why OpenStack projects fail. In that article, he outlined three particular metrics which together cause 60% of OpenStack projects to fall short of expectations: Wrong people (31% of failures): a successful cloud needs commitment both from the operations team as well as from "anchor" tenants. Wrong processes (19% of failures): a successful cloud automates across silos in the software development lifecycle, not just within silos.

It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management. The new Azure container service taps into Microsoft's partnership with Docker and Mesosphere. You know when there's a standard for containers on the table there's money on the table, too. Everyone is talking containers because they reduce a ton of development-related challenges and make it much easier to move across production and testing environm...
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
