Denodo and Tableau Partner on Self-Service Analytics Solution for Business Users

Denodo, a provider of data virtualization software, formed a technology partnership with Tableau Software, which offers software for analyzing and visualizing data. As a part of the relationship, Denodo is delivering the “Denodo Tableau Data Extract (TDE) Exporter Tool,” which will improve the performance and management of data to enable data exploration and self-service BI and analytics. According to the vendors, the enhanced integration between the two technologies will enable IT departments to easily provision reusable and integrated data services while enabling enterprise data consumers to analyze, visualize and share information.

“Denodo provides agile access to disparate data through data virtualization, while Tableau offers powerful data exploration and data visualization capabilities,” said Suresh Chandrasekaran, senior vice president at Denodo. “The release of the Denodo TDE Exporter Tool underscores Denodo’s expanding leadership in the Data Virtualization market, while increasing the value derived from data to our joint customers.”

The Denodo Data Virtualization Platform can be deployed rapidly and hides the complexity of structured and unstructured data repositories from data consumers through a virtual abstraction layer. Combining the Denodo platform with Tableau’s data visualization software enables reports to be generated faster with integrated data from many different sources.

“Today’s business user is demanding faster and easier access to all their data,” said Robert Green, director, product management at Tableau. “Integration options from Denodo, including the new TDE Export functionality, provide Tableau customers with the powerful ability to bring together data from disparate sources and gain more insights from their all their data, quicker.”

The release of the Denodo TDE Exporter Tool enables the generation of TDE memory-mapped files from a variety of data sources regardless of their location or complexity, improving the performance and user experience when generating reports under Tableau. Tableau users can either access data in real-time directly from the Denodo Data Virtualization layer (for operational BI for example), or rely on TDE files pre-generated by the Denodo Exporter Tool for efficient analysis of large data volumes.
