Rocket Software has launched Rocket Discover, a self-service, intuitive data preparation and discovery solution to give business managers and executives the speed and confidence to make key decisions. Rocket Discover allows users to easily access, manipulate, prepare, and visualize data to expose insights and help them make critical business decisions that will drive growth and outpace the competition.
Business users can easily access and enrich data from multiple sources, ranging from mainframes to databases to the cloud. With self-service data preparation and discovery in one solution, they can get business insight within minutes, not days or weeks. For optimal performance, Rocket Discover was engineered with a data retrieval architecture that combines in-memory performance with live query access, a hybrid approach that can handle today’s high volume thresholds.
Today’s business professionals know their data, their business challenges, and the need to quickly connect the two to address these challenges. Rocket Discover’s emphasis on intuitive design for self-service data preparation and discovery makes this possible. Users can easily interact within a rendering canvas to create visual data process flows and dashboards through simple drag-and-drop movements. When it’s time to collaborate, team members drag a dashboard into the chat window to begin their conversation about strategy and opportunities. Rocket Software solution offers:
- Connectivity to disparate data that includes IBM z Systems and IBM Cognos TM1
- Self-service data preparation and data discovery in one solution
- Data lineage for governance
- High-performance data access for rapid decision making
Subsequent releases of Rocket Discover will continue to capitalize on Rocket Software core competencies by providing additional features in the areas of data connectivity, maximizing the value of the mainframe, increased levels of intelligent guidance during data preparation, and enhanced collaboration.
