Digital Reasoning and Tableau Software Partner to Advance Big Data Analytics


Digital Reasoning™, the leader in unstructured data analytics at scale, today announced a partnership with Tableau Software, the global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence software. Synthesys®, Digital Reasoning's platform for unstructured data analytics, combined with Tableau Desktop 7.0, provides users in government, finance and other markets with a complete solution for addressing today's fraud, risk, compliance and business opportunity challenges presented by massive amounts of unstructured text.

“We are excited to be working with Tableau on these big data analytics challenges within financial services and the government,” said Tim Estes, Digital Reasoning's CEO. “Combining the power of Tableau's visual analytics with Synthesys' ability to make sense of unstructured data, customers can now easily understand all of their big data.”

Tableau is a recognized leader in big data analytics in government and finance. By adding Synthesys' unstructured data analytics, Tableau customers can now include critical new information sources including email, corporate communications, documents, research reports, social media, and a wide variety of other data sources. Synthesys takes a unique approach to unstructured text analytics with machine learning, patented algorithms, and adaptable software that learns by example. By combining the power of these two unique solutions, customers will have the ability to uncover fraud or risk that is buried in email, meet compliance obligations where the important data is unstructured, or identify new opportunities by automatically extracting the critical information found in web content, research reports, or company news.

“Tableau is happy to be working with Digital Reasoning to further our mission to help people see and understand data,” said Dan Jewett, Vice President of Product Management at Tableau Software. “The addition of unstructured data from Synthesys to the mix of data which Tableau can work with will reduce time to insights, making big data more impactful for government, finance and many other types or organizations.”

With Tableau, Digital Reasoning offers its Synthesys users an interface that is easy to comprehend and customize. Both Tableau and Digital Reasoning will present more information about their solution at the O'Reilly Strata Conference in New York City.
