tab32 | October 27, 2022
tab32, the all-in-one cloud technology platform for dental, is the first in the industry to standardize electronic healthcare record (EHR) data by offering a cloud-based open data warehouse that allows for a standardized taxonomy for data collection, curation, and processing. Data standardization across the industry will inform business decisions and technological advances, and has the potential to help evolve the dental industry to have stronger legislation created to support it, which will impact overall healthcare outcomes.
"Data is both a key asset and a large obstacle when it comes to the dental industry. " We are offering a modern solution that focuses on standardization, ensuring all data—from analytics to billing to clinical data and beyond—is easily accessible and interoperable. Standardizing these systems not only reduces time, making it easier for dental offices to respond to organizational crises and engage in same-day decision making, but it also allows for greater insight into the industry at a scale we have not yet seen before."
Kiltesh Patel, CEO and co-founder of tab32
tab32 is providing DSOs and practices the ability to make business decisions from a data-driven approach. Designed from the ground up to bring best-in-class cloud services to dental practices and DSOs, tab32's platform turns dental providers' plethora of data into self-organizing warehouses, with uniformly formatted and consistently categorized patient records and business data. Using standardized and synchronized data and technology, DSOs can now use cutting-edge AI and business intelligence tools to surface new insights, unlock new efficiencies, and identify smarter and more effective ways to serve patients.
"The idea of standardization of data in dental is extremely powerful for the entire industry," said Melissa LuVisi, CSO at tab32. "This will allow us to leverage that information and take everyone to the next level in terms of patient care, coordination, delivery model, and more. Medical has already standardized its data; what we've done will allow dental to evolve past where medical is at, which will impact overall healthcare outcomes. This is extremely important because oral healthcare is vastly important when we're looking at healthcare outcomes, yet it often gets looked over by regulators and care providers for a variety of reasons we're looking to change."
The dental practice management platform sits on the highly secure Google infrastructure and is monitored 24/7 by its own security team, utilizing HIPAA-compliant solutions for all data-associated efforts.
tab32, an Inc. 5000 company, is the industry's #1 all-in-one cloud technology platform with three major products, Open Data Warehousing™ (BI and analytics tool), Dental Practice Management System (Dental PMS), and their stand-alone Image Cloud for radiology. Headquartered in Sacramento, California, and founded in 2011, the leadership team is made up of former researchers, data scientists, and engineers coming out of the University of California system. Providers use tab32 to track 17.2M appointments, 13M patients, and over 100M radiology xrays, with over 1.8M monthly patient text messages (not including email engagements) and $1.8B annual revenues flowing through the platform.

ThoughtSpot | October 28, 2022
ThoughtSpot, the Modern Analytics Cloud company, today announced the launch of ThoughtSpot for Sheets, an entirely new web plug-in that brings modern, true self-service analytics directly to data in Google Sheets. With ThoughtSpot for Sheets, users simply install a free plugin app for Google Sheets, and then can instantly begin analyzing all their data in these sheets through search. Built and run entirely in the browser, ThoughtSpot for Sheets requires no data modeling, technical skills, or existing architecture. Users simply install, connect, and start searching.
Currently, ThoughtSpot for Sheets is compatible with Google Sheets, including Connected Sheets, along with Supermetrics and Coefficient. Additional partners are planned for the near future. Customers can leverage ThoughtSpot for Sheets directly on their data already in Google Sheets. With Coefficient, customers can easily and quickly bring data from their cloud data platform or cloud applications into Sheets, which is then immediately ready for analysis with ThoughtSpot for Sheets. Supermetrics enables customers to bring data from their various marketing applications into sheets, which can then be searched and analyzed instantly with ThoughtSpot for Sheets.
Extending self-service analytics to data in sheets
Since its founding, ThoughtSpot has been on a mission to make the world more fact-driven by empowering anyone to ask questions and get answers from data. The company pioneered the first true Live Analytics platform, where every employee, regardless of technical sophistication, could use search to extract insights from their cloud data platform and take action on them. Today, customers like Harri, Frontify, and Accern rely on ThoughtSpot as the experience layer of their modern data stack.
With ThoughtSpot for Sheets, this same interactive, intuitive analytics experience is being extended to the tremendous amounts of data and information stored in spreadsheets. While much of the business world’s data has moved to cloud data platforms, the reality is a massive amount of data remains in spreadsheets. More than a billion users engage with Google Sheets, and research suggests that 40% of spreadsheet users struggle to make sense of their data in spreadsheets. Historically, analyzing the data in these sheets required a deep understanding of spreadsheet best practices and operations, or moving this data into an analytics solution. ThoughtSpot for Sheets dramatically simplifies this process. Analyzing this data is as simple as asking a question in simple natural language, without needing to purchase any software or move any data.
“ThoughtSpot is the platform for the masses, for everyday people to be able to ask questions of their cloud data and get reliable answers back instantly. But we know to truly advance our mission of building a more fact-driven world, we must go beyond the more robust, mature cloud data platforms, and be anywhere data lives. That includes spreadsheets. “ThoughtSpot for Sheets makes it possible for any individual to experience the power of self-service analytics and get answers, exactly when and where they need them.”
Sumeet Arora, Chief Development Officer, ThoughtSpot
"There are millions of companies that use Google spreadsheets every day. For many, spreadsheets remain a center of gravity or a necessary extension for data analysis and critical rapid decision-making. What ThoughtSpot has done here is so powerful yet so simple,” said Anand Thaker, martech industry expert and Exec GTM Advisor. “By bringing the power of search directly to where data lives for these companies, ThoughtSpot for Sheets will enable hundreds of millions of users to analyze data and share insights within their current agile workflows."
“The biggest obstacle in analytics for most companies is the constant battle to scour their marketing data for value,” said John Wall, Partner, Trust Insights and Host of Marketing Over Coffee. “ThoughtSpot for Sheets provides a quick and easy solution that any marketer can use to master their spreadsheet data.”
“Nearly everyone has interacted with spreadsheets at some point in their professional lives. While spreadsheets are extremely powerful, they lack the data connectivity needed to be truly useful and trusted across a company,” said Ben Crosswell, COO, Coefficient. “With our new integration with ThoughtSpot for Sheets, it’s incredibly easy to leverage live company data directly from Google Sheets to explore insights with ThoughtSpot for Sheets, and share those insights across the company. We’re in a new era of empowering the business user, and we’re happy to be working together to help teams take advantage.”
“Every marketer today engages with data in some capacity, whether to measure and optimize campaigns, deliver exceptional customer experiences, or shape products and services. With data coming from so many different applications and sources, our customers unlock tremendous value by bringing this data into spreadsheets for analysis. But exploring this data, finding insights, and creating charts and visualizations can be both challenging and time consuming,” said Mikael Thuneberg, Founder & CEO, Supermetrics. “With ThoughtSpot for Sheets, our customers can now sync all their marketing data to Sheets with Supermetrics and then instantly search to explore their data, visualize insights, and share those with others to create efficient, delightful marketing.”
The launch of ThoughtSpot for Sheets comes on the heels of ThoughtSpot’s year focused on democratizing the Modern Analytics Cloud, including the launch of new Team and Pro editions that make ThoughtSpot affordable for every size team and budget.
ThoughtSpot is the Modern Analytics Cloud company. Our mission is to create a more fact-driven world with the easiest to use analytics platform. With ThoughtSpot, anyone can leverage natural language search and AI to find data insights and tap into the most cutting edge innovations the cloud data ecosystem has to offer. Companies can put the power of their modern data stack in the hands of every employee, extend the value of their data to partners and customers, and automate entire business processes. ThoughtSpot enables everyone within an organization to limitlessly engage with live data regardless of their cloud data platform, making it easy to achieve granular, actionable insights through Live Analytics. Customers can take advantage of ThoughtSpot’s web and mobile applications to improve decision making for every employee. With ThoughtSpot’s developer-friendly platform, ThoughtSpot Everywhere, customers can also bring the Modern Analytics Cloud to their products and services, engaging users and keep them coming back for more. Organizations like BT, T-Mobile, Snowflake, HubSpot, Exxon, Daimler, Medtronic, Hulu, Royal Bank of Canada, Nasdaq, OpenTable, Workato, and Nationwide Building Society rely on ThoughtSpot to transform how their employees and customers take advantage of data.

Cloudflare | September 22, 2022
Cloudflare, Inc., the security, performance, and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, today announced that Cloudflare’s Data Localization Suite (DLS) is now available in three new countries in the Asia Pacific region: Australia, India, and Japan. The Data Localization Suite will help businesses based in these countries, as well as global companies who do business in these countries, to comply with their data localization obligations by using Cloudflare to easily set rules and controls on where their domestic data goes and who has access to it. This ultimately allows any business with customers in these countries to service their data locally while benefiting from the speed, security, and scalability of Cloudflare’s global network.
Nearly 70% of countries in Asia have passed or drafted new data protection and privacy legislation. This often makes it difficult for regional companies to use foreign-based vendors to handle domestic traffic. Without regional support, many businesses are under pressure to use only in-country run vendors and may be required to restrict their application to one data center or one cloud provider’s region. This creates a trade-off between compliance and fast, secure experiences for end users. With the Data Localization Suite, businesses of any size or industry can now use Cloudflare to get more choice and control over how to meet their data locality needs, without sacrificing security or performance.
“No business should have to choose between compliance with local data regulation and a superior experience for their customers. And yet, we hear time and again that companies are forced to do so in the face of a complex and ever-changing landscape of regional legislation,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO, Cloudflare. "By expanding our Data Localization Suite to our customers in Australia, India, and Japan, we're ensuring data locality doesn't have to come at the expense of the speed, security, and privacy users expect and deserve online."
Now, businesses in Australia, India, and Japan can use Cloudflare’s Data Localization Suite to:
Control where traffic is serviced: Companies can choose the data center locations where their traffic is inspected. Businesses can also use Cloudflare’s Geo Key Manager to choose where private keys are held.
Build and deploy serverless code, with regional control: Build applications that allow developers to combine global performance with local compliance regulations. Jurisdiction Restrictions for Workers Durable Objects makes it easy to build serverless applications that are confined to a specific region.
Use Cloudflare’s security features to protect their web properties: Customers can use WAF, Bot Management, DDoS protection and more to ensure their websites are safe and stay online.
Align with global and regional security certifications: Businesses can trust that they are compliant with global privacy and security certifications like ISO 27001, 27701, and 27018 while still offering performance and speed at scale.
“Asia Pacific has over 2.5 billion Internet users, representing more than half of the total Internet users in the world, and data protection and privacy have become increasingly important in this region. Preserving end-user privacy is core to Cloudflare’s mission of helping to build a better Internet, and we look forward to working with businesses across Australia, India, and Japan to enable them to provide fast, private, reliable, and secure services to their end-users.”
Jonathon Dixon, VP and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Japan, and China, Cloudflare
Data Localization Suite has supported Cloudflare customers in alignment with European localization requirements and regulations since 2020.
“We're thrilled to extend Cloudflare's localization benefits to our customers providing them greater control as they manage international data transfer requirements,” said Blake Brannon, Chief Strategy Officer, OneTrust. “Our partnership with Cloudflare supports our mission to empower our customers to navigate the evolving regulatory landscape with ease.”
Today, Cloudflare’s global network spans more than 275 cities in over 100 countries including more than 100 points of presence across Asia Pacific to bring its security, performance, and reliability solutions to as close to its regional customers as possible. Cloudflare continues to invest in the region, with offices in Beijing, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo. In March, Cloudflare also announced 18 new cities added to their global network, including Bhubaneshwar, India; Fukuoka, Japan; Kanpur, India; and Naha, Japan.
Cloudflare, Inc. is on a mission to help build a better Internet. Cloudflare’s suite of products protect and accelerate any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code. Internet properties powered by Cloudflare have all web traffic routed through its intelligent global network, which gets smarter with every request. As a result, they see significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks. Cloudflare was named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Company Cultures 2018 list and ranked among the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company in 2019. Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Cloudflare has offices in Austin, TX, Champaign, IL, New York, NY, San Jose, CA, Seattle, WA, Washington, D.C., Toronto, Lisbon, London, Munich, Paris, Beijing, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo.
