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.

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."

With DevOps becoming more well-known and established practice in nearly every industry that delivers software, it is important to continually reassess its efficacy. This week’s top 10 includes a discussion on how the quick uptake of DevOps adoption in the enterprise has posed some serious challenges. Additionally, organizations who have taken the DevOps plunge must find ways to find, hire and keep their DevOps talent in order to keep the machine running smoothly.
Between the mockups and specs produced by analysts, and resulting applications built by developers, there exists a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral, and applications disappoint. Methodologies like Agile attempt to address this with intensified communication, with partial success but many limitations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Charles Kendrick, CTO & Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will present a revolutionary model enabled by new technologies. Learn how business and devel...
Call it DevOps or not, if you are concerned about releasing more code faster and at a higher quality, the resulting software delivery chain and process will look and smell like DevOps. But for existing development teams, no matter what the velocity objective is, getting from here to there is not something that can be done without a plan. Moving your release cadence from months to weeks is not just about learning Agile practices and getting some automation tools. It involves people, tooling and ...
Much of the discussion around cloud DevOps focuses on the speed with which companies need to get new code into production. This focus is important – because in an increasingly digital marketplace, new code enables new value propositions. New code is also often essential for maintaining competitive parity with market innovators. But new code doesn’t just have to deliver the functionality the business requires. It also has to behave well because the behavior of code in the cloud affects performan...
The notion of customer journeys, of course, are central to the digital marketer’s playbook. Clearly, enterprises should focus their digital efforts on such journeys, as they represent customer interactions over time. But making customer journeys the centerpiece of the enterprise architecture, however, leaves more questions than answers. The challenge arises when EAs consider the context of the customer journey in the overall architecture as well as the architectural elements that make up each...

APIs have taken the world by storm in recent years. The use of APIs has gone beyond just traditional "software" companies, to companies and organizations across industries using APIs to share information and power their applications. For some organizations, APIs are the biggest revenue drivers. For example, Salesforce generates nearly 50% of annual revenue through APIs. In other cases, APIs can increase a business's footprint and initiate collaboration. Netflix, for example, reported over 5 bi...
As the software delivery industry continues to evolve and mature, the challenge of managing the growing list of the tools and processes becomes more daunting every day. Today, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) platforms are proving most valuable by providing the governance, management and coordination for every stage of development, deployment and release. Recently, I spoke with Madison Moore at SD Times about the changing market and where ALM is headed.
If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
These days I mostly make my living as a consultant. Consultants in general are probably not the best loved group in the world. It is common to think of consultants wafting-in to your organization, telling you things that you already know and advising you to “change your culture”, whatever that means. Subsequently they depart, no-doubt with a fat fee, and leave you as you were before with the same problems and no progress made.
The goal of any tech business worth its salt is to provide the best product or service to its clients in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. This is just as true in the development of software products as it is in other product design services. Microservices, an app architecture style that leans mostly on independent, self-contained programs, are quickly becoming the new norm, so to speak. With this change comes a declining reliance on older SOAs like COBRA, a push toward more s...
