Product Update: Visier Data Connections Removes Data Management Burden from Analysts and Data Scientists

Vancouver, BC and San Jose, CA |

New capability offers significant time savings, while ensuring data accuracy

Visier, developer of the leading people strategy platform, today announced Visier Data Connections, a new capability included with Visier Workforce Analytics, part of the Visier Workforce Intelligence solution, that allows customers to access and use data from Visier in spreadsheet applications, specialized analysis tools (such as Tableau, Qlik, SPSS, SAS, or R), and web applications (such as web portals or dashboards). “Visier has not only become the go-to place for instant answers to our customers’ important workforce questions, it has also become their single source of the truth,” says Dave Weisbeck, Chief Strategy Officer, Visier. “As part of the Visier solution, we integrate, cleanse, and organize all of a customer’s relevant data into a virtual data warehouse. With Visier Data Connections, customers who want to perform niche analyses or integrate workforce data into a web application can now save significant time, while also ensuring data accuracy.” To do data analyses in spreadsheets or tools such as Tableau, Qlik, SPSS, SAS, or R, analysts and data scientists first have to integrate and clean data – work that can often represent over 80 percent of the time they spend on a given project. With Visier Data Connections, analysts and data scientists can eliminate this data management work by instead leveraging the cleaned, integrated data stored in Visier’s virtual data warehouse. They can also use JSON (a popular data exchange format) to connect Visier data to analysis or visualization tools, or to include Visier data in internal web applications and dashboards.
