One major provider of cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is partnering with a business intelligence software leader to add instant visual analytics to its suite of services.
California-based NetSuite has teamed up with Tableau Software to serve up its latest feature for its cloud services subscribers: fully exportable, highly visual analytics reporting to help business leaders make more data-driven decisions.
“This integration opens new doors for joint customers to understand and act on NetSuite data in real-time using best-in-class analytics,” said Dan Jewett, Tableau Software’s vice-president of product management, in a statement. “Robust analytics is a hallmark of leading-edge companies, and this makes it faster and simpler for NetSuite customers to take full advantage of Tableau to drive the business.”
The more interactive, real-time analytics come at no additional cost to current joint customers and works to streamline the process of transforming chunks of data into easily digestible reports for businesses. Now, NetSuite users can export their data into a native Tableau file format to be converted on the Tableau Server into custom visual analytics, all with a few clicks.
“Both NetSuite and Tableau are committed to meeting rising demand among customers for out-of-the-box integration that would let them go from data to insights in a few clicks,” Guido Haarmans, NetSuite’s senior vice-president of business development for technology partners, said in a statement. “Teaming up with Tableau and our joint development efforts addresses this demand and enhances the value of our respective technologies.”
Some of the key advantages of the new partnership also include:
- Business analysis: This joint solution means users can leverage ERP, CRM and ecommerce data to identify trends, key performance indicators (KPI) and gain insights into overarching business performance.
- Visual analytics: Data visualizations that can filter data, split trends across categories or run in-depth cohort analysis.
- Deep statistics: The ability to export integral business data to examine trend analyses, regressions, correlations and more.
- Interactive Mapping: Users can comb through interactive worldwide maps to gain global insights on how their business is performing wherever it operates.
