SentryOne Introduces Report Pack for Displaying Database Performance in Tableau Format
CHARLOTTE, NC - October 22, 2018 - SentryOne announced Tableau Report Pack for SentryOne Monitoring, which empowers data managers to use the industry-leading Tableau Software analytics platform to view and analyze monitoring data for SQL Server, SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), and Azure SQL databases. With the new SentryOne Report Pack, DBAs and IT managers can view and share database performance insights in graphically compelling Tableau formats familiar to business leaders and data users at organizations around the world.
“With the release of the Tableau Report Pack, SentryOne now gives technology teams the ability to analyze and convey business-critical information about the health of the company’s data systems in a format that resonates with stakeholders and data end users,” said Douglas McDowell, SentryOne Chief Strategy Officer. “Because many Tableau users are analyzing data stored in SQL Server, Analysis Services, and Azure SQL Database, they will appreciate the ability to see how the underlying databases are performing through recognizable reports with beautiful visualizations.”
The Tableau Report Pack, which can be run from Tableau Desktop or deployed to Tableau Server, contains reports that pull SentryOne monitoring data from targeted SQL Server, SSAS, and Azure SQL databases. Data teams can see key metrics about the database environment, including high-impact queries, resource utilization across servers, processing spikes, and other factors that could degrade performance for data users throughout the company. SentryOne saw the benefit of developing a report pack for Tableau users after learning how DBAs at Tableau Software, a SentryOne customer, were using their software to display SentryOne monitoring data.
“The Tableau Report Pack for SentryOne Monitoring helps data managers analyze and present critical information about the health of the data environment in the compelling, visual format that Tableau users have come to expect,” said Todd Talkington, Director of Technology Partnerships at Tableau. “Data managers will now be able to communicate seamlessly with stakeholders across their organizations, helping more people extract value out of their business-critical data.”
In addition to offering the Tableau Report Pack, SentryOne provides solutions that simplify documentation, data lineage analysis, and compliance. SentryOne DOC xPress helps data pros document Tableau Server environments and track data lineage from SQL Server, SSAS, and Azure SQL Database sources to Tableau reports. With SentryOne BI xPress, data pros can compare Tableau data to manage changes. With SentryOne LegiTest, data pros can validate the deployment of Tableau reports, ensuring confidence in the quality of business-critical data.
“The Tableau Report Pack not only enhances data reporting for the DevOps and database admin teams but also helps company leaders understand the impact of performance bottlenecks on the ability to meet SLAs, keep ecommerce systems running, and maintain other critical business functions,” said Jason Hall, SentryOne VP of Product Management.
Data users can see a demo of the Tableau Report Pack for SentryOne Monitoring at Tableau Conference 2018 in the SentryOne booth, #1326. For more information about Tableau Report Pack for SentryOne Monitoring or to download a free trial, go to www.sentryone.com/tc2018.
