We make BI & Big Data analytics work easier and faster. Our goal is to empower business users and make always-busy business and heavily loaded BI specialists less dependent on each other when solving data-driven business problems. If you have every experienced a lack of data you needed, time to consuming report generation or long queue to your BI expert, consider Querona.
Steroids for your BI
- Some reports take long minutes to generate
- My BI expert wants me to wait 4 weeks for a new report
- I need real-time data
- I'm tired of digging for reasons of data inconsistency
- I want more 360 degree view on my business
- Would be great to reduce ETL processes workload
- I need agile prototyping tools when optimizing my warehouse
- I want to offload data and processing to the cloud
- I need more clarity and governance on data
- I already did everything I could to accelerate queries
- I need future proof solution for rapid growth of data volume
- I'm overloaded with business requests
Querona uses a built-in Big Data engine to handle growing data volumes. Repeatable queries can be cached or calculated in advance. Optimization needs less effort as Querona automatically suggests query improvements.
Querona empowers business analysts and data scientists by putting self service in their hands. They can easily discover and prototype data models, add new data sources, experiment with query optimization and dig in raw data. Less IT is needed.
Now users can get live data no matter where it is stored. If databases are too busy to be queried live, Querona will cache the data. Now waiting for monthly refreshment of a report is no longer needed.
The right data is mined in Querona thanks to user-friendly names added and shared by data analysts when discovering the data. Raw data can be previewed to clarify doubts.
Querona is a single place to find all data sources, no matter if it is an internal database or a cloud application like SalesForce or Marketo. You can easily connect new sources and join data across platforms to get a wider view on the business.
Layers of a Logical Data Warehouse in Querona are just views. No need to design ETL processes, it is enough to decide which views are cached, when and where.
Querona self-service interface makes it simple to connect new data sources, explore data and prepare data marts for reports. You can decide what should be cached or stored in EDW later.
A cloud data warehouse may be quickly selected as a caching database. Data loading for a selected view is just one button click. A cloud warehouse is protected by Querona’s Windows Integrated authentication, access rights and data masking.
Querona Data Virtualization layer is a single access point to all data sources. Authentication, role based authorization, multilevel access rights and data masking is enforced on all data sources.
Slow queries may be accelerated using caching, in-memory processing on Apache Spark or query retargeting to a different execution engine. Query rewrite will automatically choose the best preaggregate.
Querona supports multiple SQL execution engines at the same time. You can simply decide which data is cached on which caching database and what is stored in Hadoop.
Experienced business analysts and data scientists may be granted rights to manage their area of the data warehouse. Now a data scientist can perform actions that previously required IT help.
Large, complex, and rapidly changing datasets require complex processing techniques to handle. That is where Big Data starts. The digital world is generating huge amounts of data in all aspects of our life eg. IoT, smart home, smart cities, e-commerce, omnichannel etc. For businesses, becoming more and more data-driven is a must to keep up and gain a competitive advantage. Big Data analytics lets business users make smart decisions based on ubiquitous data.
Real time access brings instant view on real data from source systems. No need to wait for capturing, processing and data aggregation. We live in a fast-paced environment where no-latency decision making is a king. Smart decisions must be made promptly to get ahead of the competition.
Agile BI is a groundbreaking view on Business Intelligence. The new idea of BI development biased towards rapid adaptation to business changes. It turns BI classical approach upside down. It shifts an effort from data sourcing to data modeling and provides more self-service for business analysts.
Agile BI brings empowerment for business analysts, shorter development cycles, lower development costs, faster feedback and more.
When data structure for reporting is centrally defined, tangible benefits occur.
In a data-driven world people count on reporting, collaborate and make collective decisions. They need a freedom of choice: where, when and how they get an access to data. Separation of data model and presentation tools makes it all possible lowering the costs of implementation and ensuring data governance at the same time.
A data warehouse may be deployed in the cloud where high availability or usage peaks are not an issue. The demand on data analytics grows exponentially and business needs are usually compulsive. At the same time, IT resources and technologies are mostly non-scalable enough to execute the required analytics promptly.
A cloud data warehouse is easily scalable and that makes it cost efficient. The quick implementation and launch are additional gains.
