ThoughtSpot Launches SaaS Offering to Unlock the Value of Cloud Data Warehouses with Search & AI-Driven Analytics

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 22, 2020 ThoughtSpot, the leader in search & AI-driven analytics, today announced the release of ThoughtSpot Cloud, the first fully-managed SaaS offering providing business users with the flexibility to glean instant insights from data in the cloud. With ThoughtSpot Cloud, businesses can empower employees to access granular insights across the entirety of their cloud data in a matter of minutes, helping these organizations maximize ROI from their investments in cloud data warehouses like Snowflake, Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, and Microsoft Azure Synapse.

Enterprise Analytics is Finally Ready for the Cloud

Historically, enterprise analytics has been slow in moving to the cloud, held back by limited and slow growing network bandwidth, data gravity remaining on premises, fragmentation of data in multiple clouds, and concerns around security. Technological improvements over the last five years, particularly the introduction of cloud data warehouses, have addressed many of these concerns. Despite these advancements, accessing data today remains a challenge, with 73% of data going unused for analytics. They require a turnkey solution that works hand-in-hand with cloud data warehouses to enable all employees, from frontline worker to C-suite executive, with insights at the most granular level from their entire cloud.

Concurrently, the pandemic has accelerated the shift to a digital economy around the globe, prompting a new world order in which organizations must embrace digital transformation initiatives or be left behind. Traditional business models are being upended by data, while distributed workforces become the norm, driving companies to invest in the cloud more heavily than ever before. With increased cloud spend, businesses must rethink how their teams leverage the full power of their cloud to create meaningful growth at record speed.

ThoughtSpot Cloud fulfills this timely demand, giving enterprises the ultimate solution to instantly realize value from their cloud investments and spur greater digital transformation gains. ThoughtSpot Cloud connects to popular cloud data warehouses like Amazon Redshift, Snowflake, the cloud data platform, Google BigQuery, and Microsoft Azure Synapse, allowing business users to unearth insights from all their cloud data with search and AI.

Thoughts from the Top

“Moving to the cloud and putting the cloud to work are often two different things. That’s why the ease of integrating ThoughtSpot with our existing AWS based data lakes was so important,” said Callie Cobbs, Sr. Lead Analyst, Chick-fil-A. “As our business and our data volumes continued to grow, we really needed a platform that would scale as we did, while also giving our business users faster and higher value-add insights to make informed decisions at the speed of business.”

“Empowering every employee with data has become the lifeblood of modern businesses. This has become especially clear for organizations this year as they face the challenges created by COVID-19,” said Sudheesh Nair, CEO of ThoughtSpot. “ThoughtSpot Cloud is purpose-built to address our customers’ need to unleash the full power of their cloud data, and drive true digital transformation more quickly than ever before. Existing legacy solutions, which are riddled with lag-times and infrastructure restrictions, are simply not up to the task. Our customers rely on us to help them to build a more fact-driven world through the use of data, and with ThoughtSpot Cloud, we’ve taken a major step forward in advancing this important mission.”

“From day one, ThoughtSpot has had a singular focus – making data accessible to everyone. With our search and AI-driven analytics solution, we deliver the easiest analytics experience that empowers everyone, regardless of technical sophistication, to ask questions of their data and make better decisions.” said Ajeet Singh, cofounder & Executive Chairman, ThoughtSpot. “With the launch of ThoughtSpot Cloud, we are expanding our product portfolio to deliver instant value on top of all enterprise data, wherever that data may live. This will give our enterprise customers the freedom to manage their data across all public and private cloud environments, while delivering a modern search-based interface to everyone in their organizations.”

“The world has been moving to the cloud for years, as organizations realize huge benefits in speed, efficiency, and adoption from cloud capabilities. Too often, however, we hear these organizations are struggling to equip their entire team with the insights from their cloud data,” said Chris Degnan, Chief Revenue Officer, Snowflake. “ThoughtSpot Cloud makes it incredibly simple for organizations to leverage search and AI-driven analytics directly in Snowflake and realize more value from their cloud data.”
