ADP® DataCloud has been Named "Data Analytics Invention of the Year" in the 2021 Data Breakthrough Awards

ADP | March 25, 2021

ADP, an industry leader in data technology, was named a winner in the 2021 Data Breakthrough Awards for its innovative workforce analytics solution. The solution was named the Data Analytics Innovation of the Year by the independent market intelligence organization for its ability to harness data to address some of the most challenging problems businesses face today.

The Data Breakthrough Awards objective is to honor data technology innovators, pioneers, and visionaries from around the world in a variety of categories such as Data Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Storage, and more. This year, the competitive program received over 1,450 nominations from around the world.

"Businesses have traditionally struggled to identify trends within their people data, and ADP DataCloud represents a significant 'breakthrough' in this area that can result in significant savings and improved retention for organizations," said James Johnson, managing director, Data Breakthrough. "ADP DataCloud addresses some of the biggest challenges that businesses face today, including shifting economic policy, employee retention, and the pay equity gap. We are thrilled to award ADP DataCloud with our 'Data Analytics Innovation of the Year' award and we extend a hearty congratulations to the entire ADP team."

"This past year has demanded that businesses become more agile, as they adapted to the implications of the global pandemic and its impact on the economy and their people," said Jack Berkowitz, senior vice president of product development at ADP. "Businesses have the data they need to make informed decisions, but too often those insights are hidden beneath manual processes. ADP DataCloud uncovers those insights and embeds them directly within the flow of work to give businesses the transparency they need to thrive. From new features to target pay equity gaps and drive inclusion to predictive analytics-driven storyboards that analyze turnover rates, we're constantly raising our aim to give businesses the edge they need."

ADP DataCloud analyzes aggregated, anonymized, and timely HR and salary data from over 740,000 organizations across the country using AI, allowing businesses to benchmark and compare compensation data, turnover rate, and overtime. The approach provides actionable ideas to those who will operate on them by leveraging the scope and depth of "live" data in the broader market.

To assist in navigating the new world of work, the solution includes real-time insights pushed directly to leaders through the ADP Mobile Solutions app; story-driven suggestions on workforce patterns and trends; and Data Mashups, which allow businesses to pull financial and sales data directly through their HCM systems to reveal relationships.

Civis Analytics Launches Toolkit for a Data-Driven COVID Vaccine Campaign

Civis Analytics | February 23, 2021

Civis Analytics, a data science firm innovating at the intersection of public good and scientific best practices, today announced the launch of its COVID Vaccine Campaign Toolkit. This resource hub includes key information for organizations looking to use data to inform persuasive and equitable COVID vaccination outreach. The toolkit provides guidance on each aspect of an outreach campaign that requires a specific, tailored approach. These include: • Messaging and messenger: Results from scientific experiments to guide messaging and spokespeople, so the most persuasive language is used for each audience. This includes new research on employer-specific messaging, conducted in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Crystal Son, MPH, Director of Healthcare Analytics at Civis Analytics, also shares examples of counterintuitive findings, tangible advice for any vaccine campaign team, and comparisons to Civis research on other vaccine messaging. • Resource allocation: An interactive vaccine hesitancy map that visualizes which U.S. counties are most likely to need additional intervention to drive up vaccination rates. This map can guide groups that need to determine where to focus education or outreach efforts. • Process: Leveraging best practices from recent 2020 Census outreach campaigns, Civis outlines a five-step process organizations can follow to ensure their vaccine campaign is data-driven and set up for success. "Vaccine uptake is absolutely critical to herd immunity -- which is what we all need to recover from the pandemic," said Son. "Too often, we assume that a one-size-fits-all approach to public health campaigns can work. We continue to see that the language and messengers that work for one group can backfire with another -- so we really need to eliminate our own biases and rely on the data to guide our campaigns. For many of us, this is the most important campaign of our lifetime, and we need to do this right." About Civis Analytics Civis Analytics helps leading public and private sector organizations use data to gain a competitive advantage in how they identify, attract, and engage people. With a blend of proprietary data, technology and advisory services, and an interdisciplinary team of data scientists, developers, and survey science experts, Civis helps organizations stop guessing and start using statistical proof to guide decisions.

ThoughtSpot | May 11, 2022

ThoughtSpot, the Modern Analytics Cloud company, today announced a significant update to the organization’s platform during their annual customer conference Beyond 2022 to help organizations around the world dominate the decade of data. These new capabilities include ThoughtSpot Sync, CodeSpot, Bring Your Own Charts, new Liveboard capabilities, and multiple new SpotApps. ThoughtSpot also announced the launch of new editions, including Team Edition, Pro Edition, and a special offer for startups, education institutions, and nonprofits, making it possible for individuals, small teams, and growth companies to take advantage of the Modern Analytics Cloud. The dawning of the decade of data The proliferation of cloud, mobile, and new data sources over the last ten years set the stage for transformational change for every business and sector in society. Now, the rise of new technologies like AI, web3, and 5G are taking this transformation further than ever before, creating a generational shift in power in the market, within organizations, and between consumers and brands. At the core of these shifts in power is data. As these power shifts fundamentally reimagine the world around us, they’re creating new opportunities for businesses bold enough to reimagine themselves in kind. The new ThoughtSpot capabilities give companies a new experience layer that makes it possible to put innovation from across the modern data stack in the hands of every employee to maximize the value of all these different tools. Armed with these new functionalities, customers can confidently accelerate analytics initiatives and adopt the new rules of data as they seek to dominate the decade of data. A deeper look Each of the new elements launched for the Modern Analytics Cloud enables organizations, whether startups or established enterprises, to connect, build, launch, and scale the power of data in their organizations. Connect With multiple new integrations and expanded relationships, connecting ThoughtSpot to any data source or data platform has never been simpler. This includes: Support for Amazon Redshift Serverless means customers can leverage the Modern Analytics Cloud to run and scale analytics on Amazon Web Services without having to provision and manage data warehouse clusters. Snowflake Data Marketplace, including the new Snowflake Data Explorer app, gives customers the ability to create insights from third party data in the Snowflake Data Marketplace. This makes it possible to rapidly prototype insights with new data sources for leading indicators. Databricks Partner connect gives Databricks customers the ability to launch a ThoughtSpot free trial in seconds from the Databricks console. Support for new architectures with connectors for both Dremio and Starburst Galaxy gives customers the ability to leverage Live Analytics and accelerate value from different architectures, including data mesh and the data lake. Build. Organizations can build products, apps, and services faster than ever with ThoughtSpot. CodeSpot is a searchable repository of open-source ThoughtSpot blocks and code samples for developers to accelerate embedding analytics and app development with ThoughtSpot Everywhere. CodeSpot includes reusable, best practice examples of the most common development tasks, such as custom actions, visualization, API and tooling, formulas, and more. ELT Live Analytics templates are readily available custom ELT jobs built to work with SpotApps and Matillion. Any Matillion customer can launch a new use case in a matter of minutes simply by accessing the Matillion job from CodeSpot and mapping the transaction system to your cloud data platform. New third party data blocks leverage TML (ThoughtSpot Modeling Language) to empower customers to use external data to enrich their own proprietary data for more nuanced, meaningful insights. Data providers include Ibotta, Safegraph, Windfall, and FactSet. Launch. Data professionals and analytics engineers are facing increasing demands from businesses to get use cases from development to production quickly. New features from ThoughtSpot arm these professionals with the capabilities they need to do so at scale. These include: Integration with dbt, now generally available, empowers analytics engineers to translate dbt models to TML (ThoughtSpot Modeling Language). With dbt, data teams can more effectively collaborate on modeling data in the cloud data platform, then make those data models immediately consumable with ThoughtSpot. New SpotApps make getting up and running with use case templates for critical use cases simple, dramatically accelerating time to value for customers. These new SpotApps include different templates for transaction systems like ServiceNow, Snowflake, HubSpot, Okta, Google Analytics, Google Ads, Jira, Redshift, and Databricks. Scale. The transformative value of data can only be realized when it’s possible to scale these initiatives to every corner of the business quickly and efficiently. To make this achievable, ThoughtSpot has introduced new capabilities, such as: ThoughtSpot Sync, which enables companies to operationalize insights by using them to automatically trigger actions in other applications and services through APIs. Bring Your Own Charts gives users freedom to engage and see their insights in entirely new ways with the best possible chart, graph, or visualization. With Bring Your Own Charts, customers can bring any visualization from other javascript or d3 libraries directly into ThoughtSpot’s interactive, Live Analytics experience. Monitor, now generally available, scales analytics further by eliminating the need to even log into an analytics platform. Instead, users get automated insights that alert them to changes as they happen. Users can simply create KPIs, then the system continuously scans for changes, outliers, and anomalies. When detected, it goes further, initiating an automated change analysis to uncover the key drivers of the change then pushes all these insights to a user. “The more we talk to customers, the more it’s clear they need an entirely new experience layer for analytics if they want to realize the potential of the modern data stack. The tools built for desktops that deliver static visualizations simply won’t cut it in the decade of data,” said Ajeet Singh, cofounder & Executive Chairman, ThoughtSpot. “With today’s new capabilities, we’re answering the call of customers. Whether they’re looking to bring insights to everyone in their organization, build products and apps with Live Analytics, or launch new use cases, we’re ready to help them make that possible with the Modern Analytics Cloud.” “Data is a vital element of our education products and services. With ThoughtSpot, we’re able to deliver fundamentally new ways to obtain valuable data and share insights that can lead to better student outcomes,” said Patrick Deshler, SVP Technology, Survey & Document Solutions, Data Recognition Corporation. “This ability to incorporate agility directly into our product is critical to driving a differentiated experience for our customers.” See the power of the Modern Analytics Cloud for yourself and start a 30 day free trial today.
