Infotech Lead India: BI solutions provider QlikTech said its customers can now combine QlikView in-memory data with Teradata Integrated Data Warehouse via a new feature called Direct Discovery.
QlikView Direct Discovery eliminates the need to download data sources into memory by allowing QlikView to directly access information in the Teradata data warehouse, displaying the results in a QlikView visualization or dashboard.
QlikView Direct Discovery for Teradata will be offered with the QlikView Version 11 upgrade available in December 2012.
QlikView business users will have the advantage of expanding their analysis to data within a Teradata data warehouse in addition to other data sources. Working with QlikTech and Teradata, customers will be able to optimize the environment to decide what data is used in-memory or accessed.
Moreover, QlikView Governance Dashboard enables IT to see what data in a QlikView app are most frequently used, whether stored in Teradata or in another source. This analysis can be used to help IT develop a migration path for new Enterprise Data Warehouse data, where it can be used by other corporate applications.
“Through easy to use enterprise class applications like QlikView, more business users can take advantage of the data that is managed in the Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse to gain insights for better decisions,” said Wayne Boyle, vice president of strategy, Teradata Labs.
“We’ve seen great customer demand to leverage their valuable Teradata big data sets in the familiar visual interface of a QlikView app,” said Anthony Deighton, chief technology officer at QlikTech. “Teradata is a fit for our enterprise customers who want to make use of big data with volume, velocity and variety.”
According to a recent news report in InfotechLead.com, TalkTalk, a UK broadband provider, is piloting QlikView Business Discovery platform for faster reporting and dashboards. The pilot will also enable TalkTalk to give employees the flexibility to better understand how to make the provisioning process faster for an improved customer experience.
