Processing and reporting business intelligence information requires teamwork between IT and business users. The two sides don't always get along, though, because each is focused on a different set of responsibilities. IT's focus is on security, governance, consistency, and data accuracy. Business users want to access the data in a way that lets them easily build the reports that drive informed business decisions.
Database solutions become easier to govern as IT builds in higher levels of security. But the data becomes far less accessible to the end user. That conflict makes everybody's job harder. Toad Business Intelligence Suite from Dell software simplifies business intelligence with four unique technologies that bridge the gap between IT's compliance requirements and business users' need for easy access and reporting.
Toad Data Point lets IT perform cross platform queries, data integration, data cleansing, and compare and sync 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 language, and make their data accessible to every user in the enterprise.
Together, the four components of the Toad Business Intelligence Suite provide secure access to all appropriate data. Custom tools that enable job specific data interaction. Intuitive visualization that allows for compliant data analysis, reporting, and sharing. And the flexibility business users need without compromising IT's enterprise security standards.
