The secret to success

You don’t need to become a Hadoop expert or master any other NoSQL database to continue being a great data analyst. All you need is an analyst toolset that connects to any platform, letting you easily access and work with data from every new source your company chooses to use.

Click your way to perfect queries

A good solution for data analysts will work like a translator tool. You tell it what you need to know with a few clicks of your mouse, and it provides you with the correct data because it speaks every language. That way, you don’t have to, which is a win-win for everyone. Because when you don’t have to worry about data silos and emerging technology platforms, you can spend a lot more time actually working with your data.

A sweat-proof solution

So when your boss mentions that they’re thinking about throwing Vertica into the mix, you won’t even break a sweat. And when you’re able to adapt to anything that comes your way ― without actually doing any extra work ― well, we call that impressing your boss… with very little effort.
