Provides fast deployment, scalability and a cost-effective payment model
BOSTON – TARGIT, the company behind the market-leading business intelligence (BI) and analytics platform, TARGIT Decision Suite, today announced availability of its first offering of Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines to allow access to advanced data discovery tools, simple self-service business analytics, comprehensive reporting, and stunning dashboards in the cloud via Azure.
TARGIT's offering for Azure Virtual Machines delivers TARGIT Decision Suite as a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) software model. This provides the same licensing model as running TARGIT on-premises, with necessary infrastructure licensed as Pay As You Go.
Additional benefits of using TARGIT on Azure Virtual Machines include:
- No upfront investment for hardware and software licensing: TARGIT on Azure users are able to scale up or out over time without the typical massive reinvestment in additional hardware and software.
- Full support for Azure database technologies: TARGIT Decision Suite 2015 comes with official support for Azure SQL Database, the dedicated relational database service hosted on Azure.
- Fast ROI realization: TARGIT on Azure has a rapid timeline for deployment, and is the most cost-effective way to get started with BI. Users don’t need to have IT resources dedicated to managing an on-premises solution to glean problem-solving BI insights.
“As champions of self-service BI, we’re thrilled to share the power of the TARGIT Decision Suite with business users worldwide via the Azure Marketplace,” said Morten Sandlykke, CEO and founder of TARGIT. “Our Azure Virtual Machine offering is a natural extension of our substantial footprint in the Microsoft ecosystem. Our customers are now able to solve a myriad of business problems with real-time dashboards, analytics, automatic agents, mobility solutions, storyboarding, and reporting on a global scale.”
“The addition of TARGIT Decision suite, a self-service BI tool to the virtual machine Azure Marketplace delivers flexibility and choice to users looking to work with their data sources and systems via the powerful cloud services in Azure,” stated Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure.
