Sisu Data, the decision intelligence company, is expanding its partnership with Google Cloud to help more organizations increase analyst efficiency, fuel decision-making, and drive metric improvement. Today at Google Cloud Next, Sisu announced that Google Cloud will provide easy access to Sisu capabilities inside Google Cloud’s Looker, BigQuery, and data cloud products to enable users to benefit from AI/ML-powered automated analytics.

Joint customers of the Sisu Decision Intelligence Engine and Google Cloud’s Looker can already leverage existing integrations to accelerate data investigation and diagnose why key metrics change. This announcement expands the integration to make it even simpler to leverage AI/ML-powered automated analytics for governed, modeled data in Google Cloud.

Enterprises today are storing more data than ever before—more data than they can effectively put to use. According to Gartner®, “The only thing growing faster than companies’ appetite for insights is the data volume itself. Consuming and making sense of all that data with an army of business users armed with these tools will no longer be enough. The tools need the help of machines to accelerate the ingestion and interpretation of data and the sharing of resulting insights with business users.”*

To help companies cut through the noise of growing data volumes, the Sisu Decision Intelligence Engine augments analytical workflows with AI/ML-powered automated analytics—delivering statistically significant insights on cloud-scale data in seconds.

“Sisu’s mission to operationalize the world’s data is a bold goal, and we’re excited about the impact this deep integration with Google Cloud will have for customers, Google Cloud is a clear leader in cloud analytics and data infrastructure, and we’re excited to power ML-driven insights across their customer base.”

Peter Bailis, Founder and CEO of Sisu

The strategic partnership brings Sisu’s decision intelligence capabilities and Google Cloud’s data analytics closer together, augmenting analytics workflows to help more people:

Accelerate answers: Leverage predefined governed data and metrics in Looker’s semantic layer, LookML, to run ML-powered analyses with Sisu—closing the loop between raw data to insight.
Democratize machine learning: ML-powered automated capabilities in Sisu enable users without data science expertise to run advanced analytics and cut through the noise of growing data volume.
Adapt and act: Quickly iterate on questions via the familiar Looker interface while running diagnostic analyses via Sisu’s machine learning powered algorithms.
“Google Cloud is committed to going beyond traditional business intelligence to help customers innovate, solve, and succeed with data,” says Bronwyn Hastings, Vice President, ISV Ecosystem & Channels at Google Cloud. “By bringing Google Cloud and Sisu closer together, we can help more people leverage augmented analytics to deliver comprehensive insights at the speed organizations need to make critical business decisions.”

“At Overstock, we trust Sisu and Google Cloud to help us champion a data culture and make the best decisions,” shares Dave Nielsen, President at Overstock. “The expanding partnership between Sisu and Google Cloud will make it even easier for us to drive strategic decisions with data and deliver the best customer experience.”

“Today’s most successful organizations know the value of operationalizing cloud data,” says Ben Horowitz, cofounder and general partner at Andreessen Horowitz. “Bringing Sisu and Google Cloud closer together creates a clear path for more companies to succeed by delivering real-time answers to their cloud-scale questions.”

Wasabi Surveillance Cloud Offers 'Bottomless' Video Storage for Surveillance Growth in Demand

Wasabi Technologies | February 02, 2023

On February 1, 2023, the cloud storage company, Wasabi Technologies, introduced Wasabi Surveillance Cloud, a first-of-its-kind solution that avails organizations to offload video surveillance footage from local storage to the cloud without running out of space. This 'bottomless' approach to video storage is important for the surveillance industry, which is currently struggling to handle a lot of videos in high-resolution environments, growing file sizes, retention requirements, and strict regulatory and business and analytics applications tied to surveillance. Wasabi Surveillance Cloud addresses storage space, resolution related and other challenges head-on by designing a seamless hybrid storage environment that preserves present on-site technology investments and maximizes their ROI without letting them lose any of the benefits. Users of every significant video management system (VMS) can move videos that are not used often directly from their on-site servers to Wasabi hot cloud storage, which involves low cost than AWS S3, Google, or Microsoft Azure and doesn't charge for egress or API requests. The data on the video is kept "hot" so that it is always available and can be retrieved in milliseconds. With Wasabi Surveillance Cloud, a VMS technology that was once separated from the cloud, becomes cloud-aware in an instant, making it easy to switch to cloud storage. Wasabi Surveillance Cloud's Key benefits include easy integration with all of the major VMS providers, Industry-leading protection with immutability to stop ransomware or accidental deletions, data and video restoration direct from the cloud, globally deployed in top-tier data centers certified for SOC 2, ISO 27001 and PCI-DSS, on-demand scaling ability to avoid costlier server upgrades and to increase the framerate and resolution. Additionally, HIPAA, CJIS, FERPA, FINRA, and other primary industry and government regulations and retention requirements are fulfilled with this solution's help. About Wasabi Technologies Founded in 2017, Wasabi Technologies is a hot cloud storage company. Hot cloud storage is easy to use, low-cost, and quick to write to. Cloud storage from Wasabi is fast, cheap, and reliable. Wasabi, based in Boston, is a privately held company. It was started by David Friend and Jeff Flowers, who were among the first to use cloud storage. It is a partner of the Boston Red Sox and the official cloud storage partner of the Boston Bruins and Liverpool Football Club. Wasabi is one of the fastest growing and most innovative tech companies, trusted by its customers around the globe.
