Tellius Enhances Decision Intelligence Platform to Unify Insights Across Disparate Datasets

Tellius | November 10, 2022

Tellius today announced the latest version of its decision intelligence platform with new features including Multi-Business View Vizpads. The enhancements in Tellius 4.0 will help users unify insights for more holistic views, accelerate ad hoc analysis in an enterprise-controlled manner, and get faster onboarding and time to insights. Introducing Multi-Business View Vizpads As the number of dashboards grow in a company, so does the amount of context switching and stitchwork to get the full picture of what is happening in the business to make better decisions. As a result, most organizations today are experiencing disconnected decision-making—leading to missed opportunities to increase revenue and improve customer retention. To reduce this friction, Tellius has added Multi-Business View Vizpads (MBV Vizpads) to its platform, unifying analysis across disparate data sources. Now, users can gain greater visibility into data across sources without needing to toggle through multiple dashboards, enabling better collaboration, efficiency, and decision-making across different functions. For example, marketing teams could use MBV Vizpads to view Google Analytics site traffic alongside Salesforce data for an omni-view of the journey from visitor to prospect to customer, all in one place. This data can then be fed into Tellius’ AI-driven decision intelligence engine to uncover the what, why, and how that informs better business decisions. “Tellius recognizes that business decisions are rarely narrow in scope, so the new ability for VizPads to work across Business Views is important. But I think they go further than just decision support — it’s decision management. For a well-governed business, the ability to track and evaluate outcomes is just as critical as the decision itself," said Donald Farmer, a data and analytics product expert and Principal at TreeHive Strategy Services. Delivering enterprise-grade ad hoc analysis and faster time to insights In addition to introducing MBV Vizpads, Tellius also rolled out a host of other features, including: Guided walkthroughs, in-app chat, and feedback support to improve the onboarding and user experience, empowering customers to realize value from insights faster than ever before Enhanced search disambiguation and date operators to make Tellius’ search functionality more robust Default User Groups, Spark SQL support, and OAuth support for Snowflake Audit logs to deliver superior enterprise-grade decision intelligence capabilities. This platform enhancement news comes on the heels of Tellius’ $16 million Series B funding round led by Baird Capital. Tellius also received significant industry recognition for its decision intelligence platform this year, including being named a Visionary in the 2022 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Analytics and BI Platforms and a representative vendor in the 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Multipersona Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms. “We’ve made a fundamental shift by simplifying how users interact with Tellius. Multi-Business View Vizpads will empower business users to analyze insights across disconnected and disparate data models to unlock game-changing holistic decision-making,” said Hardik Chheda, Chief Product Officer at Tellius. “We will continue to invest in the entire user journey on our platform - with a core focus on user onboarding, supercharging our ad-hoc analysis capabilities, and adding robust enterprise capabilities.” About Tellius Tellius is an AI-driven decision intelligence platform that enables anyone to get faster insights from their data. The company helps organizations across industries, including financial services, pharmaceutical and life sciences, retail, healthcare, and high technology, accelerate their journey from data to decisions by augmenting human expertise and curiosity with intelligent automation.
