A Retail Analytics Platform Without Limits
Optimized for big data retail analytics, the PivotLink AnalyticsCLOUD is the first solution to combine the capabilities of self-service, scalability and big data analytics for the retail business user. Filling the gap left by existing solutions, AnalyticsCLOUD couples a flexible architecture with a SaaS deployment model to deliver complete solutions for retail analytics challenges in weeks, resulting in much lower total cost of ownership and much higher ROI than traditional approaches.
PivotLInk AnalyticsCLOUD is designed from the ground up to address retail analytics use cases. On the fly metrics, history restatement, and real time reporting facets are all part of the basic architecture, not add-ons to a general purpose business intelligence or database platform. For example, no longer is the data model locked to the data structure – instead, the data model is first defined by the metric you need, with a determination of where the data comes from to feed that metric as a second step. Pre-defined relationships are a thing of the past as cubes and star schemas are no longer necessary – the legacy relational hierarchy approach is too limiting. Instead, our logical model provides the flexibility to join data as needed to drive to your key metric. The net result: business users get the answers they need quickly, with unparalleled flexibility.
