TARGIT Enhances its Data Discovery Platform

TARGIT, provider of business intelligence (BI) and analytics platforms, is introducing an updated Data Discovery tool that, the vendor says, will put complex data and exploration into the hands of business users.

This upgrade combines data mash-up and analytics with data security, allowing users to import their own external data sources and analyze them in conjunction with existing data.

“We want to stay ahead of the curve in the way the data presents itself so it’s always appealing, crisp, and feels good,” said Ulrik Pedersen, CTO.

The latest Data Discovery upgrade offers 70% faster data loads for large files and an improvement in query performance when used with TARGIT Decision Suite 2015 HF2, according to TARGIT.

Additional features include a new format option that is available for all data sources, a new calculation engine, a new unpivot feature, and improved connections to data load speed and query performance for existing data sources, including Directory, HTML tables and Google Analytics.  A new TARGIT Analysis data source allows users to combine data from existing data warehouse solutions with live data from online data sources or Excel files.  And finally, new connections have been added for  data sources, including MongoDB, Salesforce, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SharePoint, R scripts, and DB2.

“The fastest adoption has been amongst our existing users,” Pedersen said. “It’s really complementing what they can do with their warehouse or existing solution already in place. But what we also see is we really get a lot of interest from the more entrepreneurial organizations.”
