Syncsort and Tableau Software Form Technology Partnership to Help Customers Accelerate Big Data Integration and Analysis

Combined Solution Delivers Fresher Enterprise-Wide Data, Faster and More Efficiently to Hadoop for Speed-of-Thought Visual Analysis and Information Sharing

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. – September 05, 2013

Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions, today announced a technology partnership with Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) geared to provide their mutual customers with a better way to make the most current, accurate data from across the enterprise, including mainframe and legacy systems, available in Hadoop and then visualize and share it on-the-fly with simple, drag and drop business analytics.

Syncsort’s Data Integration solutions deliver an agile ETL platform ─ collecting, processing and integrating data into Hadoop for faster performance and an easy way to keep the most current data available for analysis. Tableau gives customers a quick and simple method to analyze, visualize and share the information via a drag and drop interface. Combined, Syncsort and Tableau provide a fast, resource and cost-effective solution for collecting, processing and visualizing data ─ optimizing value and leveraging key mainframe and legacy data to uncover new business insights on request.

“To derive maximum value from Big Data across the enterprise, customers are looking for the smartest way to get enterprise data into Hadoop, keep the most current information available for analysis and quickly and easily visualize it for business intelligence,” said Bryan Ashley, vice president business development, data integration business, Syncsort. “With Syncsort’s Data Integration solutions and Tableau’s visual analysis technology, customers have the agility to achieve this goal with speed, accuracy and minimum risk.”

With over 40 years of mainframe experience, Syncsort can address the challenges of ingesting and processing data from across the enterprise, including mainframe and legacy data. With no programming or tuning required, Syncsort provides the ability to extract, transform and load data between Enterprise Data Warehouses, file repositories, and Hadoop.

“Big Data analysis is often complicated by the need to integrate data from multiple sources with multiple formats including key business data sources on Mainframes,” said Dan Jewett, vice president of product management, Tableau Software. “The process of collecting and processing the data needs to be simple, fast, efficient and reliable from the time it is pulled from multiple sources until it is visualized for analysis. The partnership with Syncsort offers a complete and balanced solution to this challenge.”

Syncsort will be available to discuss the partnership and demonstrate the joint solution at the Tableau Customer Conference in Washington, D.C. at booth 308 in the Partner Pavilion (Expo Hall D) during Expo hours from Sunday, September 8 through Wednesday, September 11.

In addition, last month, at the HP Vertica Big Data Conference, Syncsort showcased a joint HP Appsystem/Tableau/DMX-h/Vertica solution designed to deliver high-performance loading of HP’s next-generation analytics platform software.
