Alteryx Deepens Partnership with Google Cloud to Create Seamless Analytics Experience

Alteryx Deepens Partnership with Google

Alteryx, Inc. the Analytics Cloud Platform company, is expanding its partnership with Google Cloud to provide Looker Studio users with native access to a free limited version of Alteryx Designer Cloud's AI-powered data preparation capabilities and enhanced connectivity. This new integration builds on Alteryx and Google Cloud's commitment to make it easier for customers to surface critical insights for decision-makers in a timely manner, resulting in actions that can improve business outcomes.

"With businesses under more pressure to get value from technology investments, Alteryx, in partnership with Google, is minimizing the friction in the analytics process so enterprises can gain more accurate insights much faster than before," said Kate Wright, senior director, product management at Google. "Deepening our partnership with Alteryx will help deliver seamless data preparation and powerful insights from one interface, making it easier for our customers to achieve even more breakthrough innovations with their data."

The new Alteryx Designer Cloud and Looker Studio integration will initially provide users enhanced cloud connectivity to Excel and CSV files and storage platforms like Sharepoint and OneDrive. Users will also be able to efficiently transform data and improve data quality using Designer Cloud's data preparation capabilities, allowing them to prep their data up to 10 times faster, and leading to greatly improved decision intelligence.

Further, Designer Cloud's intuitive self-service interface enables non-technical workers with functional domain knowledge to prepare their own data as part of their process of building data visualizations. The free version of Designer Cloud available on Looker Studio will have limited features with the option to upgrade to the full Designer Cloud experience.

"In today's macroeconomic environment, time to insight is key to thriving and gaining competitive advantage," said Alteryx's Adam Wilson, senior vice president and general manager of Alteryx Analytics Cloud. "Alteryx provides Looker Studio's millions of monthly active users with access to critical new data sources and saves them a significant amount of time by cleaning up their data in just a few clicks. They'll be able to increase their productivity by automating the refinement of raw data and the blending of diverse sources to create new data products that will drive key business initiatives."

This integration expands on Alteryx and Google Cloud's partnership, which includes Google Cloud Dataprep, an intelligent cloud data service that processes more than 1.4 million jobs each month.

"Alteryx and Google Cloud have a strong relationship rooted in improving the most time-consuming portion of the analytics process as identified in our research: data preparation," said David Menninger, SVP and research director at Ventana Research. "By bringing Excel connectivity and native data preparation capabilities of Designer Cloud to Looker Studio, Alteryx and Google Cloud are giving users powerful end-to-end analytics from one interface. This is incredibly valuable at a time when dynamic environments and market conditions are forcing business leaders to make more strategic decisions at lightning speed."

Devo Security Data Platform Attains FedRAMP Authorization

Devo | January 09, 2024

Devo Technology, the security data analytics company, today announced that the Devo Security Data Platform received Authorization to Operate (ATO) at the Moderate level under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). The Devo Security Data Platform successfully completed FedRAMP's rigorous accreditation process, enabling federal agencies to secure their environments with a market-leading security information and event management (SIEM). Agencies and their partners can now leverage Devo to solve their toughest IT and security challenges with unparalleled visibility and a unified view of risk posture, security operations and the threat landscape. The demand to keep pace with rapidly evolving cyber threats at cloud speed and scale has never been higher for the U.S. government. New Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations require federal agencies to collect and retain logs for long time periods. These requirements strain legacy SIEM and logging solutions, resulting in higher license and maintenance costs and slower query times. The Devo Security Data Platform's massive ingestion capabilities overcome these challenges and enable agencies to manage petabytes of data—from any device or application—cost-effectively and performantly in the cloud. Kayla Williams, CISO, Devo, said: "Devo relentlessly maintains the highest standards of internal security controls to ensure customers can protect themselves from security threats with peace of mind. Commercial customers have used the Devo Security Data Platform in the cloud for years, and this milestone enables us to continue to extend the same seamless experience to federal agencies and their partners." The Small Business Administration sponsored Devo's authorization. FedRAMP was established to provide a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by the federal government. FedRAMP empowers agencies to use modern cloud technologies with an emphasis on the security and protection of federal information. The Devo Security Data Platform is also available in the AWS GovCloud Marketplace, an isolated AWS Region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, assisting customers with U.S. federal, state and local government compliance requirements. About Devo Devo unleashes the power of the SOC. The Devo Security Data Platform, powered by our HyperStream technology, is purpose-built to provide the speed and scale, real-time analytics, and actionable intelligence global enterprises need to defend expanding attack surfaces. An ally in keeping your organization secure, Devo combines the power of people and AI to augment security teams, leading to better insights and faster outcomes. Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with operations in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, Devo is backed by Insight Partners, Georgian, TCV, General Atlantic, Bessemer Venture Partners, Kibo Ventures and Eurazeo.
