ThoughtSpot Announces ThoughtSpot One New Product Built for Cloud

ThoughtSpot | December 10, 2020

ThoughtSpot One is worked for associations who have grasped the agility, speed, and size of running analytics in the cloud, and require new intends to convey experiences straightforwardly to business clients all through their association. As these associations make an ever-increasing number of bits of knowledge from their cloud data over the long run, business clients can't use the entirety of this insight since it's cracked over the association. Frequently, a person's inquiry has just been replied to by another person, yet finding the perfect substance at the perfect time has been incomprehensible.

ThoughtSpot One tackles this issue by totally rethinking the whole start to finish scan insight for data in the cloud, from onboarding, observing, and introductory knowledge creation to AI-driven profound investigation, sharing, and making a move. With ThoughtSpot One, clients can go past making new bits of knowledge with search and investigate all current answers in their association, including answers made by others. Fueled by extended regular language abilities, ThoughtSpot One empowers even the most easygoing client to pose an inquiry without requiring exact catchphrases or wording. ThoughtSpot One at that point uses the new fundamental social diagram to modify and rank the outcomes for the specific clients, commitment examples, and catchphrase pertinence. Similarly, clients find content on Google, Spotify, or Twitter, they can find analytical content utilizing ThoughtSpot One.

The organizational impact this makes is incredible. The more clients who search on data, the more experiences are made; the more bits of knowledge are created, the more others in the association can look and draw in with these bits of knowledge. This commitment makes ThoughtSpot One increasingly clever, empowering it to surface perpetually important and effective responses to easygoing data buyers.

“Our customers continually tell us getting the right answer, to the right person at the right time, is the greatest challenge they face. As they move to the cloud to keep up with an accelerating pace of business, the shelf life of data has become shorter than ever. While cloud computing enables processing at massive speed and scale, business people need to access and collaborate on insights from across their organization, or their businesses will fall behind,” said Sudheesh Nair, CEO, ThoughtSpot. “We knew the tried-and-true approaches found in the world of enterprise technology would fail to help our customers solve this problem. That’s why the new search experience in ThoughtSpot One replicates those found consumer applications like Google that personalize and surface content for each individual user. It takes courage to change, especially in analytics, and I’m so thankful for all our customers for not only betting on us, but being bold enough to transform.”

About ThoughtSpot:

In general, when we speak about cloud backup files are mirrored from a device to the cloud. This can be your computer, a server, your mobile or any machine that stores data locally. Using the cloud reduces the risk of total data loss because data is stored remotely.

Sigma Computing Partners with Snowflake to Launch Solution on Healthcare & Life Sciences Data Cloud

Sigma | September 15, 2022

Forescout Technologies, the global leader in automated cybersecurity, today announced a new healthcare cybersecurity partnership with First Health Advisory, a leader in healthcare IT risk management. The partnership creates an innovative approach to connected asset risk management by automating the technical data collection, mitigation and risk reduction measures for a healthcare organization’s entire network that encompasses IT, IoT, OT, and IoMT assets.

Moreover, the steps to mitigate assessment findings and lower risk are difficult to complete with the current cyber skills shortage, This partnership and new approach that combines intuitive risk assessment and automated mitigation technology will allow healthcare organizations to not only make risk assessments easier and faster to complete, but also free up internal resources to support other critical aspects of the patient experience.” Tamer Baker, vice president, global healthcare, Forescout The audit experience will also see a major transformation through this new partnership. Organizations will have an ability to automate evidence collection and receive ongoing mitigation and vulnerability management support from First Health Advisory staff year-round. “Our partnership delivers the optimal solution healthcare organizations are looking for – the right balance of highly skilled, multi-disciplinary risk assessment personnel with deep understanding of the regulatory landscape together with a dependable cybersecurity platform that can automate risk reduction actions,” said Will Long, CSO of Enterprise Security & Technology at First Health Advisory. “We’re excited about this collaboration and together with Forescout, look forward to helping more healthcare organizations improve their security posture.” About Forescout Forescout Technologies, Inc. delivers cybersecurity automation across the digital terrain, maintaining continuous alignment of customers’ security frameworks with their digital realities, including all asset types – IT, OT, IoT, IoMT.
