All too often, data integration is performed using tools like Excel. They were really designed for completely different purposes. This may work fine on a small scale, when just a few people need access to a limited amount of data. But it can't keep pace with larger environments. And spreadsheets aren't secure, so proper data governance becomes a problem as multiple copies of documents are spread around an organization.
And what happens when things start to get complicated, like integrating data from multiple sources? Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, DB2, Cloud, Salesforce.com, SAP Business Objects, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition and even user generated data. When it comes to enterprise business intelligence, data integration can get really complicated really quickly. But Toad Business Intelligence Suite from Dell software simplifies data integration, even in today's complex world.
With four unique technologies that bridge the gap between IT's compliance requirements and business users need for easy access and recording, Toad Data Point lets IT perform cross platform queries, data integration, data cleansing and comparing and sink operations. It just makes data easier to manage. Toad Decision Point gives business users free access to the data and the ability to produce graphic rich data reports through an intuitive drag and drop interface.
Working in the middle, is Toad Intelligence Central. A collaboration server that strikes a balance between IT's pain points and the businesses needs. Toad Intelligence Central sweeps away traditional points of contention and let's data provisioners on the IT side work together with data consumers on the business side.
The final piece of the puzzle is the Toad Virtual Data Layer. Working behind the scenes to access any existing databases regardless of their native code link and make their data accessible to every user in the enterprise. Together, the four components of the Toad Business Intelligence Suite provides secure access to all appropriate data, custom tools that enable job specific data interaction, intuitive visualization that allows for compliant data and analysis, reporting, and sharing. And the flexibility business users need without compromising IT's enterprise security standards.
