Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2012/06/20 - For the first time, businesses and business users can access SaaS data in the cloud in real-time, from any source, and integrate data quickly by using the Connection Cloud - ConnectionCloud.com / YellowfinBI.com.
Real-time access to SaaS data
Elastic Intelligence, a leading provider of reporting and analytics tools to SaaS providers and end users, today launched Connection Cloud.
Connection Cloud, a revolutionary PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) technology enabling real-time access to SaaS data in the cloud, solves a major data integration headache for business end-users and IT managers. For the first time, using the Connection Cloud, users can get at the underlying SaaS data where it resides; skipping the many complex integration steps they previously had to take.
Four years in development, the Connection Cloud changes the landscape of how businesses can access SaaS-based data, and collect and integrate that data, to create the reports and analysis they need, without the enormous time and money spent on complex integration projects. The Connection Cloud is the first to create standards within cloud data access and integration. It enables any SQL-capable application, business tool, or development language to access data from where it resides, essentially treating that data as if it were combined in a single SQL-compliant relational database.
Using Connection Cloud, any business user or application developer can – with a single login – access their SaaS data in real-time for use with their preferred reporting, Business Intelligence or application development tools.
Of course as an official partner, we assume your tool of choice will be Yellowfin.
Yellowfin, now making Business Intelligence and SaaS data access even easier with Elastic Intelligence and Connection Cloud.
