Elastic Intelligence and Tableau Partner to Fast Track SaaS Data Into Tableau’s Best-in-Class Visualization Platform

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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
