Tableau

There’s a reason Tableau has been a leader for eight years in a row in the annual Gartner Magic Quadrant, which recognises the best analytics and business intelligence platforms. It’s simply the world’s most powerful tool for helping people view and understand their data.

And as data becomes the greatest asset of the 21st century, it’s vital that forward-thinking companies don’t get left behind. If you know how to process and unlock the secrets of data through powerful visualisation and interactive solutions, you already have one foot in the future.

Alteryx

If data is the modern world’s greatest asset, it makes sense that forward-thinking businesses treat their data like shares — and making them available to employees. Alteryx is the leading platform in the ever-evolving world of Analytic Process Automation, which aims to empower virtually anyone in a given organisation to become part of the overall data analysis process. If each worker is able to make incremental data connections and deductions, the holistic benefits are immense.

Amazon Web Services

AWS is a cloud platform that allows you to set up your business analytics software and deploy it in the cloud. Increasingly, businesses are incorporating a cloud first data strategy as it improves centralised management, reduces capital expenditure and allows them to scale applications as more users are deployed throughout their business. As well as the ability to handle a much larger throughput of customers and reports, AWS offers security and resilience and can easily be upgraded or restored as required.

Amazon Web Services

  • We have single points of failure and our disaster recovery process is complicated
  • There is an overhead when manually managing and upgrading our data management systems
Solutions
  • AWS can scale and manage this to meet your requirements as you grow
  • AWS provides resilience across geographic zones in the case of disaster and methods for automatic recovery and redeployment
  • AWS enables you to automate deployment and maintenance of your systems
Key benefits

Snowflake

The days of data warehouses in vast data centres filled with expensive hardware are long gone for most organisations. Snowflake is a leading cloud-based data warehouse platform, with no need to install hardware or set-up and support in-house servers. And even without physical expansion it’s still breaking down walls — Snowflake lets you scale your data storage and computation independently, so you can pay for each separately.

Snowflake
Problems
  • Computational and data storage requirements fluctuate regularly
  • Huge volume of use cases on a typical day
  • Our clients don’t use Snowflake — can we still share our data?
Solutions
  • Snowflake is all about flexibility — to load data faster, or run more queries, simply scale up your virtual warehouse, and scale down at any time
  • Snowflake removes concurrency issues with its innovative ‘multicluster’ architecture — queries from separate virtual data warehouses never affect each other
  • Snowflake users can seamlessly share data with any client, even if they’re not a fellow Snowflake customer. Reader accounts can simply be created through the user interface.
Key benefits
Key benefits
  • No limit — Snowflake offers infinite scalability
  • Three distinct layers, each with independent scaling potential (Database Storage, Compute layer and Cloud Services)
  • Pay as you go — storage is billed by terabytes stored per month, and computation is billed by the second
  • Peace of mind — self tuning with near-zero maintenance
  • Built to be global — seamless integration with Snowflake’s cloud partners in every region on Earth
