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."

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
