BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE, BIG DATA MANAGEMENT
Dynatrace | November 16, 2022
Software intelligence company Dynatrace announced today that it is extending its Grail™ causational data lakehouse to power business analytics. As a result, the Dynatrace® platform can instantly capture business data from first and third-party applications at a massive scale without requiring engineering resources or code changes. It prioritizes business data separately from observability data and stores, processes, and analyzes this data while retaining the context of the complex cloud environments where it originated.
Dynatrace designed these enhancements to enable business and IT teams to drive accurate, reliable, cost-effective automation and conduct efficient ad hoc analytics covering a wide range of business processes. Examples include order fulfillment and bill payments, service activation and customer onboarding workflows, and the impact on revenue from new digital services. Today’s announcement builds on capabilities that Dynatrace launched in October 2022, leveraging Grail to power log analytics and management. The company expects to continue to extend Grail to power additional development, security, IT, and business solutions.
Organizations depend on digital services to drive revenue, customer satisfaction, and competitive differentiation. To optimize these services and user experiences, business and IT teams increasingly rely on insights from various business data, including application usage, conversion rates, and inventory returns. Yet, traditional business intelligence tools lack the speed, scale, flexibility, and granularity required to deliver insights about services built on complex cloud architectures. In fact, according to a study from Deloitte, two-thirds of organizations are not comfortable accessing or using data from their business intelligence tools. Business analytics in modern cloud environments requires a new approach.
“Dynatrace gives us valuable insight into the business impact of our applications’ performance and enables our teams to proactively solve problems, deliver better customer experiences, and drive more value for our organization,” said Stephen Evans, Head of Quality, Monitoring, SRE/DevOps Technology at PVH. “This enhanced capability to access and store all of our business data provides the scalability our business needs. It also frees our teams from the constraints of sifting through data to determine what is valuable and what should be stored. Dynatrace’s unique ability to analyze all this data and deliver precise and contextualized answers in real time enables us to improve our digital landscape.”
“To drive digital transformation at scale, organizations need trustworthy and real-time insights from their business data. Existing solutions often rely on stale data, fail to deliver precise answers in IT-context, and require manual maintenance and coding from engineers. “The Grail causational data lakehouse uniquely positions the Dynatrace platform to overcome these hurdles. By elevating the priority of business data to ensure it arrives unsampled and with lossless precision, even from third-party applications where developers are not accessible, business and IT teams using the Dynatrace platform can now easily access valuable business insights on demand. This has the capability to unlock nearly unlimited business analytics use cases, allowing our customers to instantly answer their most challenging questions with accuracy, clarity, and speed.”

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.
