Quantrix DataNAV Combines Query, Analysis, and Visualization With Modeling for Improved Business Intelligence

New Tool Leverages In-Memory Analytics for High-Performance Queries on Large Datasets; Enables Business and IT Users to Create and Share Ad Hoc and Exploratory Analyses for Improved Business Intelligence and Planning

PORTLAND, ME -- (Marketwire) -- 06/03/09 -- Quantrix today launches DataNAV, an add-on product to its business modeling and analytics solution, Quantrix Modeler. The combined DataNAV and Quantrix Modeler solution is a practical and easily deployed alternative to the widespread yet deficient practice of pairing spreadsheets with BI tools for business analysis and planning. The new tool advances Data Navigation, Analysis, and Visualization (DataNAV) by enabling both business and IT professionals to easily query data sources to develop ad hoc, exploratory, and structured analyses. Proprietary in-memory analytics offer superior performance for querying, filtering, and aggregating data from very large databases, including those in excess of one billion rows. The new charting engine allows dynamic, side-by-side comparison of multiple charts in multiple dimensions for enhanced visual analysis.

"Quantrix DataNAV takes query, analysis, and visualization capabilities that were previously the domain of the IT department and makes them accessible to business professionals within an organization," says Chris Houle, CEO, Quantrix. "DataNAV is very intuitive, yet powerful, so both business and IT users can create near instantaneous analyses from corporate data and then model, visualize, and share them in real time."

Quantrix DataNAV enables organizations to cost effectively derive new value out of existing data assets by closing the gap between BI and spreadsheets. Benefits include:

-- Faster Insight Through Drag-and-Drop Query and Analysis: A new interface enables users to simply drag and drop data elements into an analysis to automatically create SQL queries. Business professionals can now develop their own analyses and models without IT programming to answer the urgent questions critical to business success.

-- Visual Business Intelligence Plus Modeling: Quantrix Modeler with DataNAV delivers business intelligence capabilities along with multidimensional modeling and analytics. Model visualization offers an important advantage over the current crop of data visualization applications as it enables more extensive, contextual analysis and forward-focused planning. Together, these tools offer a practical and easily deployed alternative to the problematic BI/spreadsheet standard that dominates corporate business analytics.

-- Exponentially Faster Processing: DataNAV leverages in-memory analytics, which performs all data processing on the server rather than the user's desktop computer. This significantly enhances performance by delivering almost instantaneous results on most queries, and enables scalable analytics and modeling.

-- More Value From Existing BI and CPM Investments: DataNAV leverages enterprise investments in CPM/BPM and BI by providing a seamless integration with a broad range of databases, data warehouses, pivot tables, csv files, and business applications.

-- Affordability: DataNAV costs significantly less than traditional BI tools, and is affordable for organizations of all sizes. It is sold as an add-on to version 3.5 of Quantrix Modeler Professional and Quantrix 64.

"Quantrix gives business users the ability to work accurately and flexibly with large amounts of business data and is far easier to use than traditional business intelligence tools," says Robert D. Kugel CFA, Senior Vice President & Research Director at Ventana Research.

Quantrix Modeler's multidimensional business modeling and analytics software enables financial professionals to break away from the restrictions of spreadsheet technology to develop financial models of the highest integrity, flexibility, and transparency. The addition of DataNAV significantly advances business analytics capability by closing the gap between spreadsheets and business intelligence.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
