SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Tableau Software, a global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence software, is raising the bar for Big Data analytics in Latin America after announcing integration with Google BigQuery and SAP HANA. As part of its ongoing commitment to the market in Latin America, Tableau more than doubled the number of resources dedicated to Latin America during 2012. Tableau continues to add more local partners and training resources to complement its Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese product offerings.
Tableau integrates with virtually every platform and enterprise solution -- delivered via desktop, web and mobile devices -- with no programming required. Whether via native data connector or in-memory, Tableau is the data analysis software that allows you to work with your data no matter where it lives.
"Tableau is a new generation of business intelligence," said Miguel Nhuch, Vice-President for Latin America for Tableau. "Tableau is a second generation BI tool that is much easier to deploy, administer and scale and allows users of all levels to ask and answer questions -- in a matter of seconds. Tableau employs cutting-edge advances in computer science to accelerate analysis. The result is that whenever required, the business users can from any device access multiple data sources of any size, while at the same time, reducing the burden that traditional heavy business intelligence platforms place on IT."
Nhuch, who is Brazilian and speaks seven languages fluently, has been spearheading the expansion efforts throughout Latin America since he came on board in April, 2012.
Earlier this quarter, Tableau announced its integration with Google BigQuery, a fully managed cloud-based service that enables businesses to interactively analyze enormous amounts of data in the cloud. Tableau's direct connection to BigQuery enables business users to easily visualize and analyze Big Data in just a few clicks.
Tableau also upped the ante when it announced it was offering direct connectivity to SAP HANA to bring big data to life. Tableau connects directly to SAP HANA in-memory computing platform, providing a fast connect-and-go experience to data, no matter how big or complex. Tableau's visual analytics software now includes a native direct and interactive connection to SAP HANA, allowing business users to easily tap into data and start visualizing and analyzing in real-time.
The Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese versions of Tableau 8.0 are fully aligned with the company's global expansion strategy. During 2012, Tableau has announced strategic partnerships with industry-leading IT consulting firms in Latin America, including:
- Brazil: CSC, PATH, Twice Software and Full Business Partner
- Chile: Solex, Cognus and Intellego
- Colombia: Procalidad
- Costa Rica: ITECSA
- Guatemala: Computing Resources
- Mexico: InfoMedia, Intellego, DataTeam Consulting and Data Discovery
- Peru: Gora Consulting
Last year, Tableau announced major improvements to the Tableau Partner Program, making it easier for partners to help their customers and to grow their businesses.
Latin America Expansion
Tableau announced its global expansion in Latin America and introduced Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese versions of its products in May. Since then, the company has been hosting educational events throughout the region to introduce new audiences to fast analytics, visualization and business intelligence in their native tongue. Tableau has already hosted events for clients and prospects in Mexico City, Monterrey, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Sao Paulo and Santiago, Chile.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
