SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Elastic Intelligence:

News

  • Elastic Intelligence, developer of the Connection Cloud, a revolutionary SaaS (News - Alert) technology enabling real-time access to SaaS data in the cloud, and Pivotstream, a leading provider of Business Intelligence services built around Microsoft (News - Alert) Excel's PowerPivot add-on, today announced a partnership whereby Pivotstream clients will use the Connection Cloud to access data stored in applications such as Salesforce, Netsuite, Intacct, Zuora (News - Alert), Zendesk and Eloqua.
  • The partnership enables the 30 million Excel pros -the user base segment of marketing and business analysts who live with Excel 24x7 - to access SaaS data from where it resides, and create up-to-the-minute reports, without having to do any new development or engineering work.
  • Rather than having to move data to a data warehouse or other inconvenient steps, Excel users, with Connection Cloud, will now have their data accessed via the cloud, automatically refreshed and through Pivotstream's hosted PowerPivot solution, ready to be shared with all team members.

Commentary

"Connection Cloud takes all the manual grunt work out of data access and integration. Before, users would have to literally cut and paste Salesforce data, for example. Our combined platform drastically simplifies the process and allows you to share your rsults with anyone you choose - inside or outside of your organization. If you're a CMO or CFO, you want your team to have time to strategize and think. Now, with the Connection Cloud , they have the time to do so," said Rob Collie, CTO, Pivotstream.


"The vast majority of business decisions are made from data coming out of Excel. But accessing SaaS data has not been easy to do, until the Connection Cloud. With Pivotstream and Connection Cloud, users now have the ability to access data from where it resides, enabling them to create Excel based reports and share that data with considerably less labor," said Ajay Singh, CEO, Elastic Intelligence.

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
