Progress Easyl and Tableau: A Match Made in Heaven

January 25, 2015 0 Comments

Though Tableau has revolutionized data analytics, there is still a serious need in the market for data preparation and data blending tools.

These days, every aspect of business is heavily reliant on data, and for good reason. It is now incredibly easy to gather data on every aspect of your organization, and tools like Tableau make visualizing and gaining important insights into that data simpler than ever. Companies can now fine-tune their offerings to their customers based on hard evidence from marketing and sales campaigns, usage patterns, and more.

Data Preparation 101

The brave new world of data reporting and analytics doesn’t come without some pains, however. Data is collected from all directions and deposited into separate silos all over the organization. These include CRM and marketing automation software like Salesforce and Marketo, databases like Microsoft SQLServer, and a myriad of on-premise sources. Though Tableau has revolutionized data analytics, there is still a serious need in the market for data preparation and data blending tools.

Easier Data Wrangling with Easyl

One of the most common challenges when preparing data for analysis is the time-consuming process of manually copying individual data sets from all your sources into a single file using spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel. That data then needs to be cleaned by hand to rid it of duplicate entries, inconsistent terminology or incorrect information. This manual process can take hours or days—and if time is money, this is an extremely expensive burden. By the time you get the data in good shape, it’s already out of date.

Progress® Easyl™ lifts that burden. As a data preparation and blending tool, Easyl lets you:

  • Access data no matter where it is located
  • Combine data from all your sources
  • Apply easy-to-use templates when preparing reports
  • Share data across your organization
  • Simplify your infrastructure through a cloud-based model

Best of all, Easyl is configured to connect to Tableau out of the box, so you can get started right away and spare yourself the time-consuming chore of creating reports by hand.
