Insights as a Service Vendor Makes it Easier than Ever to Add, Manage and Explore Data Sources
SAN FRANCISCO—April 22, 2015— GoodData®, a leading provider of Insights as a Service, today released three new additions to its cloud analytics platform to break down the barriers of traditional business intelligence and improve self-service analytics for every individual without compromising IT’s need for data governance and integrity.
- Data Explorer is a business-user facing data exploration interface that allows business analysts to turn around insights from new sources of data in a matter of minutes rather than in weeks or months.
- Analytical Designer is the new self-service data discovery canvas that guides analysts to better insights with GoodData’s Collective Learning and recommendations.
- Email and Group Sharing makes it easy to deliver engaging insights to the right stakeholders across the organization.
“My goal when founding GoodData was to give everyone access to Insights, creating a truly data-driven enterprise at which decisions occur quickly across every level of the business,” said CEO Roman Stanek. “These new features accelerate time to insights by helping users work smarter through guided recommendations.”
