Google launched BigQuery BI Engine, a tool for in-memory analysis. By using BI Engine, users can analyze data stored in BigQuery, Google’s analytics data warehouse, with sub-second query response time. Google is also updating its Google Docs suite so that Google Sheets, the web-based spreadsheet tool, can pull all the data needed from BigQuery. The new “connected sheets” have no row limits so they can accept a massive data set where billions of rows are needed, and be turned into pivot tables.

Lotame has released Data Stream, a product it calls “Data Firehose as a Service.” Data Stream was built to give access to an always-on firehose of first-party data including consumer attribute and behavioral enrichment data from Lotame’s data marketplaces, and Lotame’s Device Graph and ID mapping data, which connects customer data across devices and platforms. Data Stream, designed for data science teams, has privacy-compliance features and can filter by data source and geography.
From the release: “Five years ago, a publisher or a marketer would take stock of their data needs, then tap an unwieldy one-size-fits-all provider for support,” said Andy Monfried, CEO of Lotame. “Today’s data use cases are more varied, complicated and sophisticated than ever. The “stacked” DMP is usually a feature of a much larger Rube Goldberg machine that is underprioritized, underinvested, underdeveloped, and neglected. This has made the stacked DMP obsolete. Publishers and marketers demand more flexibility and tailoring. Data technology partners have to provide a diverse portfolio of solutions and capabilities that cater to specific needs.”

BlueVenn has launched Unify, a Customer Data Platform with a focus on data loading and tools for non-technical users to automate the ingestion and transformation of data into the platform. The data management of Unify was previously only available as part of BlueVenn’s complete customer analytics and campaign management solution, but has now been decoupled from the complete solution and available as a plug and play platform that organizations can purchase on its own.
From the release: “BlueVenn Unify enables the marketing team to connect to infinite data sources, real-time or batch, and automate the deduplication, cleansing and consolidation of their data. It scales from hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of customer records, and as new data sources or channels become available, adding them is a simple process for the marketing team to load and link them into Unify. Marketers are stifled in their ability to work with data effectively and it leads to inaccurate insights, untargeted marketing and too much time manually wrestling with their data day-by-day,” Steve Klin, BlueVenn’s CEO said. “Unify will be transformational for these businesses!“

From the release: “The explosion of SaaS offerings, which has ultimately fueled more innovations and made almost every user’s life easier in some way, has also resulted in disparate processes, disconnected systems and too many tools that don’t integrate,” said Chris Byers, CEO of Formstack. “We saw that our users needed a unified data management system that not only transformed how teams collected data but also how that data was put to use to impact the bottom line. Our recent acquisitions have been vital in rounding out our new workplace productivity solution and its ability to increase efficiencies across any department in the enterprise.”

Periscope Data has launched Data Engine, a data integration tool. Data Engine was designed to help data teams apply the right technology to the right workflows, allowing enterprises to reliably move data from source to analysis-ready models.
From the release: “The most valuable thing that data teams can do is help their businesses make better decisions. Every moment spent debugging an ETL pipeline or figuring out why the data isn’t right is a distraction from that goal. Data Engine automates a lot of the effort that doesn’t go toward business outcomes so the data team can focus what they do best, which is using the right tech at the right time for the right analytics problem,” said Tom O’Neill, Periscope co-founder and CTO.
