Business Intelligence and Analytics
Google Looker 7
Looker Data Sciences, now a part of Google Cloud, debuted its Looker 7 business analytics platform in November 2019, offering new features and enhancements that integrate analytical insight with day-to-day tools and workflows. Looker 7 makes it easier to apply analytical insight and curated data from Looker to other applications, including through a closed-loop integration with the Slack collaboration application as well as third-party integrations with applications such as Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. In August, an update to Looker 7 added support for the complete Google Marketing Platform, upgrades for application builders and the general availability of Looker’s content marketplace.
Recent enhancements to Cisco’s AppDynamics offering have included the introduction of the AppDynamics Experience Journey Map—a new view that provides users or partners with visibility into the path of an application, using data science algorithms that can pull out information in real time. The map shows user flows overlaid with performance and business metrics, which enables the identification of problems such as application bottlenecks.
Juniper Mist Premium Analytics Service
The Juniper Mist Premium Analytics includes network and location analytics to provide customers with comprehensive visibility into their network, as well as key insight about their business. The AI-powered solution is helping with the return to offices with uses such as journey mapping (identifying areas that will need sanitization) and proximity tracing (which can determine who has been in proximity to a worker who’s had a positive test result).
Promethium Data Navigation System
Promethium is addressing the challenges of self-service data discovery and self-service analytics with its Data Navigation System—a data context platform that uses machine-learning algorithms and natural language processing to rapidly provide users with the right data to answer the right question.
