Solution gives Tableau users access to secure, governed data in Cognos and eliminates costly data re-acquisition and modeling

Organizations running Cognos have made a significant investment in that environment that they’d like to leverage as they roll out Tableau.

At this year’s Tableau Conference in Austin, Texas, Senturus is officially rolling out its Analytics Connector. The software connects Tableau to Cognos as a data source, providing organizations a host of advantages in terms of time savings, data security plus reporting speed and accuracy. Senturus released the beta version of the software solution in early 2015 and has been working closely with a dozen clients to put the product through rigorous testing before launching it at the Austin event.

“Organizations running Cognos have made a significant investment in that environment that they’d like to leverage as they roll out Tableau,” said John Peterson, Senturus CEO and co-founder. “Our Analytics Connector now allows these two valuable analytics tools to work in concert, resulting in accurate, richer reporting and giving organizations peace of mind the data is secure.”

The Analytics Connectors gives Tableau access to the rich semantic layers in Cognos, significantly reducing the time required to build Tableau visualizations. Users can drag and drop query subjects into Tableau and do not need to do any joining or remodeling. Additionally, Tableau performance is improved because the Connector pushes queries back to Cognos for execution. The Analytics Connector allows organizations using Cognos to enjoy a faster ROI on their Tableau investment.

A Tableau partner and conference sponsor, Senturus will be demonstrating the Analytics Connector at Booth #403.
