Business Intelligence (BI) solutions can be complex, requiring IT to transform data from multiple sources to build visualizations for end users. By the time those visualizations are available, a business opportunity may have passed. Rocket® Discover is a self-service data preparation and visualization tool for business users that speeds data gathering and analysis so you can make better decisions.
Many older BI solutions require complex, costly data-preparation tools that developers use to access and transform data from disparate sources into a single result set. Rocket® Discover combines self-service data preparation, visualization, reporting, and collaboration in one easy-to-deploy solution. Discover provides insights into all of your enterprise data, including previously untapped sources such as mainframes and IBM® Cognos® TM1® systems.
Discover’s self-service data prep features are built around seven simple operations. Smart features such as suggested joins and hierarchical structures cut fifty percent or more from your data preparation time. Your ability to prepare dashboards in minutes, instantly share insights with colleagues, explore all available data, and redirect IT to more strategic priorities enables your ROI to easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
With Discover’s self-service capabilities, users create their own reports and dashboards using a simple drag-and-drop interface, and add fields, sort, filter, and manipulate data as the need arises. Ad hoc queries can be executed at a moment’s notice, so no window of opportunity is too narrow.
An intuitive interface and built-in intelligence help guide users through the appropriate steps while significantly reducing the number of required clicks. Interactive eLearning modules are embedded, giving users a quick refresher when needed. With all of these out-of-the box capabilities, users can skip the IT queue altogether.
Rocket Discover exposes the origin of each data element, helping your business comply with governance mandates that require data transparency. With Discover’s data preparation and enrichment, users can quickly and easily call up a data process flow, click on a data element, and reveal its origins.
Having this information immediately available not only empowers business users to make more informed forecasting, modeling, and business planning decisions; it also makes it easy for your organization to monitor adherence to internal and external governance mandates while responding quickly to inquiries. Discover can save data analysts weeks–if not months–of time normally spent preparing data manually.
