Altiscale Partners with Tableau

Altiscale, a provider of big data-as-a-service, has partnered with Tableau Software, a provider of business analytics software, to bring the visual agility of Tableau to Altiscale customers.

This new partnership with Tableau makes it easier for business analysts, IT professionals, and data scientists to access, analyze, and visualize the massive volumes of data available in Hadoop.

"The volumes of market, product, and customer data that enterprises are rapidly accumulating will serve as the motive force behind the next wave of business innovation," said Raymie Stata, CEO of Altiscale, in a statement. "Today, this data, typically stored in Hadoop, is primarily the province of programmers and data engineers. With this new Tableau partnership, this high-potential information will be available more broadly within an organization to the tens of thousands of business analysts and other business professionals who use Tableau on a daily basis."

Tableau can connect to the Altiscale Insight Cloud via ODBC. Once connected, users can drag and drop fields to create visualizations, filter data, use analytics, derive insights, and publish out results to Tableau Server. Additionally, users can leverage intermediate solutions provided by Altiscale partners to first aggregate and catalog data prior to creating visualizations in Tableau.

"Altiscale shares our mission to help people see and understand their data," said Dan Kogan, director of product marketing at Tableau, in a statement. "Partnerships with leading Hadoop and Spark providers such as Altiscale help us to bring rich visual analytics to anyone within the enterprise looking to derive value from data."

The partnership has been enthusiastically received by Altiscale and Tableau customers, such as GluPlay, a mobile gaming studio whose games include the DASH series of games like Diner Dash and Cooking Dash. "We use Tableau broadly at GluPlay and we are enthusiastic customers of Altiscale," said Richard Au, senior technical director at GluPlay, in a statement. "The two companies working together will make it possible for us to take quick action on the insights from the fast-moving volumes of data that we get every day about our games, customers, and markets."

"We speak to enterprises across industries, such as financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, and media, who are active and enthusiastic users of Tableau," Stata said. "This new partnership will allow all of those users to make better business decisions and gather new insights, since they will have access to deeper, richer data sources on the Altiscale Insight Cloud, with analytics available through an easy-to-use, highly visual solution that they already know and like."
