Convergence 2014 kicked off with a bang yesterday. It was impossible to start the day in Atlanta without a bit of reflection on how far TARGIT has come as a company. Thirteen years ago TARGIT crossed the ocean for the first time and opened its first U.S. office right here in Atlanta.
Since then, we’ve opened two more U.S. locations in Tampa and Boston, and grown exponentially as a company. Our technology has evolved into the game-changing solution that it is today, and our staff has grown in numbers, expertise, and passion. But our philosophy remains the same: to empower users with the data discovery and analytics tools that work in synergy with their own minds to make important business decisions faster. We give users the courage to act.
And here we were almost a decade and a half later at Convergence 2014. The Opening Keynote by Microsoft Business Solutions Executive Vice President Kirill Tatarinov was both energizing and inspiring. We heard from a number of Microsoft Dynamics users who are using Dynamics to revolutionize the way they do business. Most notably were New Belgium Brewing Company, Delta Airlines, and City Harvest.
At TARGIT, we know how a powerful ERP or CRM system can help start a company’s transformation from good to great, and the TARGIT team left the arena fully motivated to spread the gospel of how Business Intelligence & Analytics completes that process of become fully data-driven.
The rest of the day was filled with informative sessions, exciting interviews, stimulating partner meetings, and an ongoing flood of Decision Suite demos at TARGIT booth #2421.
TARGIT was also thrilled to release two major company announcements from the floor of Convergence. The first is that TARGIT was once again honored in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics. You can read the full press release here.
Secondly, TARGIT today released two powerful new integration technologies within the Decision Suite: a new Microsoft SharePoint integration kit, and an updated Business Intelligence Accelerator technology.
The new TARGIT SharePoint integration allows for simple choose-and-click integration of any TARGIT Decision Suite content directly into the SharePoint portal and applications. Users can consolidate any and all data sources, and make it available wherever they work.
And the advanced Accelerators offer pre-built cubes and analyses for Microsoft Dynamics AX, NAV, GP, and CRM users. Accelerators unleash the true power of BI, instantly allowing users to analyze across data sources. Both additions to the Decision Suite mean faster data discovery and instant consumption of data. You can read the full press release here.
