Lyzasoft Announces Direct Connectivity to Salesforce.com

Lyzasoft, Inc. introduced today a new feature for Lyza, the company’s desktop data analysis solution, that enables direct connectivity to Salesforce.com’s portfolio of CRM applications. This connectivity will allow business analysts using Lyza to easily integrate Salesforce data with other enterprise data sources, then analyze, report and share the results. Current Lyza customers will receive the Salesforce connectivity upgrade at no additional cost. A full feature version of Lyza, including the new salesforce.com connectivity, is available for free 30-day trial or purchase at lyzasoft.com.

“While salesforce.com is a recognized market and technology leader in software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, companies performing BI on Salesforce data in general find that the product’s analytical capabilities are lacking,” said Colin White, president of BI Research, a leading BI and data management consultancy. “There is great interest in solutions that enable organizations to add analytics to Salesforce — offered as software-as-a-service or in the cloud, but there is also considerable interest in bringing Salesforce data into the enterprise for analytical purpose,” White said. “For that reason, this move by Lyzasoft makes good strategic sense and opens up a significant market opportunity for the company.”

“We see a significant need for salesforce.com customers wanting to analyze their SaaS CRM data in concert with data from internal systems like billing, inventory, and staffing,” said Lyzasoft CEO Scott Davis. “By allowing analysts to connect dynamically to Salesforce just like any internal database, Lyza adds easy and affordable integrated analytics to the rationale for Salesforce implementations.”

Pricing and Availability

Lyza, complete with salesforce.com connectivity, is available immediately and is priced at $899 for a single machine, one-year subscription license, unlimited online support and complimentary product updates. In addition to Salesforce, Lyza provides data connections to enterprise databases such as IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and Sybase, as well as Microsoft Excel workbooks, Access databases and text/flat files. Lyza runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
