Tableau Software Provides New Option To Access And Analyze Data Rapidly On Teradata Databases

Stocks in this article: DATA TDC

WASHINGTON, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Joint customers of business analytics software company Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) and analytics platform company Teradata (NYSE: TDC) can now analyze the complete set of relevant business data for any decision and visualize the results with ease and without moving data outside the data warehouse. By using the new Teradata OLAP Connector for Tableau, organizations can simplify access to the data warehouse and eliminate the cost, time and security risks of moving data out of the data warehouse for analysis. They can do this without foregoing the advantages of performing analysis against all of the relevant data rather than a representative sample. The new connector is the latest innovation in joint solutions from Tableau and Teradata; the companies first announced connectivity in 2009.

Additional information and a product demonstration of this solution are being showcased this week at the Tableau Customer Conference at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center near Washington, DC.

"Even the best self-service analysis applications are only as good as the data they access and the speed of the analytics. The Teradata OLAP Connector for Tableau provides our customers with another way to access the data directly in the data warehouse. This provides the most comprehensive view of the enterprise," said Dan Jewett, vice president of product management, Tableau Software.

The Teradata OLAP Connector for Tableau can be implemented by customers, by Teradata Consulting, or by Claraview, Teradata's business intelligence and analytics consultancy division. Claraview consultants are Teradata Certified Professionals and are experts in designing and deploying business intelligence solutions.

"When business users need to instantiate the correct underlying semantic model for their reports and dashboards, they often find it takes too long and results in a product full of errors. Teradata OLAP Connector makes it easy to access pre-defined Tableau business reports, making the process much simpler," said Todd Sylvester, vice president of product management, Teradata. "Additionally, analysts can harness the power of Teradata to deliver answers faster, based on the complete data set, ultimately allowing them to do more with the data."

Teradata OLAP Connector for Tableau enables analysts to connect to an optimized business intelligence semantic layer in the Teradata Database that can be leveraged to do visual exploration of the data in Tableau. It also provides simplified and shareable access enabling the business users to focus on the analysis and exploration of their data. This approach also helps IT organizations to control and manage access to the data within the Teradata Database.
