Roambi Introduces New Database Connector to Help Turn Both Big Data and Relational Data Into Valuable Business Insights

Roambi ES 4.5 JDBC Connector Gives Businesses Unprecedented Access to Data From Multiple Databases, Crystalized in Captivating Visuals

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Roambi, the stunning business app that redesigns the way the world interacts with data, today announced the launch of Roambi ES 4.5 JDBC Connector. The Roambi Connector enables businesses to tap directly into any JDBC-powered database to capture critical data, right from the source and transform it into engaging visuals that reveal key business insights -- anytime, anywhere.

With the launch of the JDBC Connector, Roambi is helping democratize the power of big data for all businesses. Companies can now access and integrate data from multiple database sources and garner meaningful information through Roambi's stunning visual reports and graphs.

"Making information available, including big data, through mobile technology is essential and our research finds that only eight percent of users have access to all the information they need," said Mark Smith, CEO & Chief Research Officer, Ventana Research. "By connecting users to big data and relational data through the JDBC driver, Roambi is able to help its customers meet a growing demand to increase mobile deployments and improve workforce productivity."

The Roambi ES 4.5 JDBC Connector was conceived after working directly with customers who were looking for choice and flexibility in how they are able to extract and view data on mobile devices. For example, Airbnb was one of Roambi's first customers requesting a data visualization solution that connected directly to their Apache Hadoop database. Using Hive queries, Unix scripts, and cron jobs, they were able to develop a homegrown business intelligence system that is continuously updated with live information.

"We look for partners that can move at our speed and maximize results using innovative methods," said Riley Newman, Head of Analytics at Airbnb. "We were attracted to Roambi's clean design aesthetic, but we're also predisposed to open source back-end solutions. We partnered with Roambi to develop an infrastructure that could meet our needs. The result was an interactive visualization app that people throughout our company can use to engage with our metrics and better understand our business, while the analytics team can maintain full control over the data pipeline to the app."

"Big data has moved beyond a buzzword to become a real business strategy for companies of all sizes," said Santiago Becerra, Co-Founder and CEO of Roambi. "Roambi is on the forefront of the dynamic trend of data-driven business and with the launch of the ES 4.5 JDBC Connector we are committed to providing organizations with the flexibility to choose the data delivery format that suits their individual needs."

Roambi ES 4.5 JDBC Connector features include:

  • More sources, more insights: Companies can combine data from multiple database sources into one seamless Roambi report, uncovering unexpected connections and insights that can be shared with more users across the enterprise.

  • Freedom of choice: IT managers now have a choice of how to deliver data based on their needs and resources.

  • Greater value: By tapping directly into existing databases or working through BI solutions, companies can cost-effectively leverage Roambi when they choose to quickly visualize data on thousands of mobile devices.

The Roambi ES 4.5 JDBC Connector is licensed to unlock the power of big data and relational data from twelve major databases including Hive/Hadoop 0.9, Oracle 11g, MySQL 5.5, Amazon Redshift, Teradata, Microsoft SQL, IBM Netezza, IBM DB2, PostgreSQL, SAP Hana, ParAccel and Greenplum.

"CGI is committed to helping our customers achieve their business goals and by providing them with a choice to easily pull information directly from a database and publish it directly to a mobile device, we are doing just that," said Thierry Meritan, Innovation Manager, CGI France. "Through CGI's professional services offering, our team of experts can use the Roambi ES 4.5 JDBC Connector to provide customers with the ability to make smarter and more informed decisions as they now have direct access to pertinent business data that previously wasn't accessible on mobile devices."
