Cloud-based system brings unprecedented analytics capabilities to companies of all sizes
SAN DIEGO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 1, 2012 — CloudTrigger, a leader in cloud-based applications and services, introduces G2Analytics, an analytics and business intelligence application that delivers BI capabilities with unmatched speed, scalability and cost advantage.
“Now, with G2Analytics, any company can put in place a nimble and dynamic analytics solution that allows you to incorporate, analyze and visualize unlimited data-set combinations from any source, through an application that can be deployed in a matter of days, and at a fraction of the cost this level of analytics traditionally has required,” said Lonnie Wills, CloudTrigger founder and CEO.
The powerful G2Analytics platform dynamically manages changes in data, producing dynamic dashboards, reports and data warehousing, making it possible to visualize data from multiple sources, across multiple platforms and delivered globally.
Traditionally, bringing together diverse data for analytics reporting has involved man-years of effort for companies with large IT infrastructures, which has limited mid-sized and smaller companies from access to actionable analytics and business intelligence. Now, companies of any size can manage terabytes of data and transactional volume between systems, along with data visualization and analytics presented in near real-time dashboards.
Key to the G2Analytics system is a proprietary CloudTrigger data array that features flexible and dynamic data retrieval, allowing companies to add, delete or change datasets within analytic reporting without breaking links to the data. G2Analytics leverages the IBM technology stack, which delivers best-in-class analytics and data warehousing capabilities.
“With G2Analytics, your dashboards are fluid. It’s no problem to change the data set you’ve initially selected for reporting. You can pull or add data quickly without implementing a data rebuild, without damaging the integrity of the data, or blowing up links that are crucial to other reporting systems,” said Wills.
G2Analytics can be implemented in days with existing systems and coupled with other cloud-based systems, including industry-standard CRM solutions.
The system also “democratizes” business intelligence by making it possible for companies to put the power of BI into the hands of all employees, with G2Analytics’ dynamic dashboards and data visualization available to an entire company through the web and mobile platforms.
“Realistically, until now, only IT analysts and a few executives have had access to business intelligence,” Wills said. “Even then, data wasn’t visualized for quick analysis and action. G2Analytics visual dashboards give you accessed to key analytics whether you’re an executive in a corner office, or a salesperson in the field. Everyone can have access to information that helps them make smart business decisions and be more effective in their job anytime, anywhere.”
Another issue casting a cloud across access to data is the explosive growth of data, as detailed in a Gartner report forecasting dataflow into mid-sized companies to increase 800% over the next five years, with 80% of the data coming from unstructured sources.
“First, it’s a challenge to categorize the data, but at the same time it’s an opportunity to take advantage of incredible new levels of data to inform better decisions,” Wills said.
G2Analytics also can incorporate location analytics through CloudTrigger’s G2Maps, the market’s most robust and intuitive way to geographically visualize data. Utilizing ESRI technology, G2Maps is the first enterprise-class geographic information system (GIS) offered in the cloud, and is customizable to include analytic overlays or filters such as demographics, and market segmentation or penetration.
CloudTrigger specializes in analytics solutions that incorporate cloud technologies and data from a variety of legacy and cloud systems. In decades of system integration experience, the CloudTrigger G2Services team has implemented more than 3,000 cloud-based systems for small and mid-size businesses, non-profits, and Fortune 500 companies.
