San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 09, 2017
Today at Google Cloud Next, iCharts, a cloud business intelligence (BI) and analytics platform, announced additional support for several more Google Cloud Platform databases, free pivot tables for current Google BigQuery users, and a new product dubbed “iCharts for SaaS.”
iCharts’s mission is to give everyone at a business the power of business intelligence and the tools to make data-driven decisions. With visual analytics that update automatically and embed right into your existing business tools, iCharts makes it easy to analyze data in a single source of truth.
Bigger Better Google Support
iCharts for Google Cloud Platform product now supports Google BigTable via Federated Querying, Google Cloud Spanner, and Google Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL, to add to iCharts’ current support of BigQuery. iCharts allows companies to have a scalable analytics layer against the transactional data inside the Google Cloud Platform, without precalculations. This can save business users hours of extra work each day because they avoid constantly having to load data into static spreadsheets.
iCharts also announced it is offering pivot tables free of charge to up to five users to companies that currently use BigQuery. These pivot tables allow users to query, organize and summarize terabytes of data directly from BigQuery. Dragging and dropping fields into a pivot table facilitates rotational, or pivotal, structural changes.
Lastly, the company also announced a new version for software as a service (SaaS) providers. Dubbed “iCharts for SaaS,” it combines BI layer and a BigQuery data warehouse and is designed to quickly integrate with the SaaS ecosystems, like CRM, ERP and mobile online payment systems, just to name a few.
