Decision Suite 2017

Our biggest release ever.

Introducing the End-to-End Analytics Platform

Introducing TARGIT’s proprietary enterprise-grade in-memory database and back-end toolset

The Universal Tool

TARGIT Decision Suite 2017 gives companies the option of running TARGIT as and end-to-end analytics solution by introducing an enterprise-grade in-memory database and back-end tool set. We've also improved performance for all the other supported data sources ensuring there's a solution design that works for every company's needs.

Designed for Speed

TARGIT's in-memory database delivers queries in blisteringly fast speeds. Column store technology only looks through relevant data, without wasting time processing the entire table. This means faster responses, whether users need a single record or aggregated values. Read more about in-memory in this blog post.

Purpose Built

The purpose built database is designed for analytics. Designed specifically as part of the TARGIT software solution, it works seamlessly with TARGIT Decision Suite and allows the most efficient execution of data operations.

Many-to-Many Relationships

The in-memory database supports easy configuration of many-to-many relationships, turning the traditional hassle of data model configuration on its head. 

Real-Time Data Compression

Compared to operational databases, TARGIT InMemory database compresses your data on the fly so it only uses between 5 and 20% of the original disc space, allowing you to have much more data available for analytics.

Forgiving Design

TARGIT InMemory database does not enforce referential integrity, allowing for faster and more flexible development. When there is an error in the integrity of the database, TARGIT will accept it and show null values inside TARGIT Decision Suite.

Data integration

The new data integration tool, TARGIT InMemory ETL Studio, is designed for fast data integration and data modelling. Connect to all data sources, transform data and load into the TARGIT InMemory database, and create models for analysis. 

For the data scientists we connect to Python for more advanced data operations.
