Good Data Integrates On-Demand Analytics with NetSuite's SuiteCloud

New Add-On Analytics Service Offers NetSuite Customers Free ERP and CRM Data Analysis

Good Data, a leading provider of on-demand, collaborative analytic solutions, today announced the integration of its on-demand analytics service with NetSuite, the industry's leading on-demand business management suite. Offered free to NetSuite customers, the analytics service enables NetSuite customers to analyze Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Ecommerce data across the entire business software suite, providing a broad analytical view of the business lifecycle.

Built using the NetSuite Business Operating System (NS-BOS) - NetSuite's cloud-based application development platform - the new integration can augment NetSuite data with data from other sources including website logs, Google AdWords, partner sales and marketing data, call records, and more.

"Most business intelligence (BI) solutions are too expensive and complex, even the emerging on-demand offerings," said Roman Stanek, Good Data Founder and CEO. "That's why Good Data strives to help its customers get started with BI easily, and then add capability as they gain more experience and success. Working with NetSuite, the leader in integrated SaaS suites is a great fit and helps us realize our vision."

The integrated Good Data - NetSuite solution gives users a pre-populated CRM analytics dashboard across leads, opportunities, orders, accounts, and service incidents. Good Data provides a collaborative or social analytics experience; users can drill down and perform ad-hoc analysis with an easy to use Web 2.0 report builder interface, collaborate with co-workers by discussing, annotating, tagging, and creating their own versions or visualizations of reports, and track new or updated analytics related to their projects via the "Pulse" news feed, all to gain more insight around customer activities. Users can also upgrade to a paid service when they wish to capture more historical data, custom NetSuite fields, or incorporate additional data sources for further analysis.

"With NetSuite continuing to acquire larger customers and going deeper into vertical markets, the need for a Business Intelligence partner such as Good Data is customer driven," said Guido Haarmans, NetSuite's Vice President of Developer Programs. "Good Data adds a layer of BI functionality on top of our built-in analytics that gives customers deeper insight into their businesses, allowing them to make better decisions in today's demanding market. The fact that customers can get started with Good Data for free makes this a very compelling partnership."

Good Data is a member of NetSuite's SuiteCloud Developer Network, a multi-tiered program for commercial software developers that enables them to quickly go to market with new on-demand business applications that leverage the power of NetSuite.

"Our NetSuite customers ask us for deeper reporting and analytics all the time," said Steve Jones, CEO at Explore Consulting, a NetSuite reseller and solution provider. "We are interested in Good Data's approach. Starting customers with a free analytics service, and giving us the flexibility to build custom solutions makes a great deal of business sense for us."

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API.

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
