Dell Software has released the latest version of Toad Business Intelligence Suite, an integrated solution that enables organizations to more easily access and extract meaningful information from traditional and non-traditional data sources. With the latest release, Toad Business Intelligence Suite delivers a host of enhancements designed to further facilitate self-service business intelligence across complex data environments.

Toad Business Intelligence Suite allows users to rapidly combine data across multiple sources, locations and formats -- relational databases, BI platforms, cloud databases, and big data sources such as Hadoop.  Users can synthesize this information through Toad Business Intelligence Suite’s customized BI tools, designed specifically for both business and IT users. Key new features in version 2.0 include:

  • Expanded heterogeneous data connectivity: The extended list of data connectors now includes complete support for Microsoft Analysis Services and connectivity to Amazon’s DynamoDB and Redshift databases. Unlike traditional BI tools that address siloed data sources, Dell Software’s data-agnostic approach provides one tool that works across all data sources to reduce complexity and improves business analysis and self-service BI.

  • Storyboarding and enhanced visualization: New storyboarding capabilities empower users to publish in-depth analyses via the Web for consumption by additional line-of-business decision makers.

  • Optimized data access and desktop self-service integration: Desktop self-service data integration is faster and more agile with performance enhancements that accelerate the ability to share data and queries in real time while streamlining collaboration and analysis. 
Toad Business Intelligence Suite is available now; pricing starts at $9,995 for five named users. It is part of Dell Software’s Information Management group. Learn more here.
