TimeXtender and Finesse announce new partnership for United Arab Emirates


TimeXtender, a software leader dedicated to helping businesses build a data-driven organization, today announced its partnership with Finesse, leading System Integrator from the GCC region.

This agreement allows Finesse to offer its existing and future clients across United Arab Emirates Discovery Hub® by TimeXtender. Discovery Hub® is an integrated approach to IT architecture behind business intelligence that helps organizations decrease time to business insights and data-driven decision making by automating all that can be automated in the data discovery, BI, and analytics lifecycle.

Discovery Hub® brings together the best of both worlds: data governance and self-service BI. It enables business users to rapidly explore and interpret trustworthy data, while at the same time freeing IT and BI specialists from tedious and redundant tasks. By leveraging the power of automation, companies can increase agility, easily access governed data and facilitate the journey to compliance. Unlike other approaches, which rely on a mix of tools and vendors for scripting, data prep and data blending, Discovery Hub® is a fully integrated, end-to-end solution, delivering faster time to value with fewer resources.

“This new alliance with TimeXtender provides us the opportunity to assist companies in their deployment of governed data and access of that governed data at a much faster clip,” said Eljo JP, Director – Global Business Development, Finesse. “We’re excited to begin helping customers streamline their data discovery with Discovery Hub®, while reducing time to insights for business users.”

Traditional project work flows simply can’t keep up with the volume, variety, velocity of new data sources, or growing number of BI and analytics front-end tools, but Discovery Hub® does so by accelerating data onboarding, managing multiple BI and analytics tools and keeping track of all corporate data. In essence, future proofing the enterprise. The interactive and user-oriented interface, with drag and drop function, enables any user with domain knowledge to rapidly respond to changes and to provide decision makers with the data they need, when and where they need it.

Discovery Hub® combines the power of automation with a metadata-driven approach. The result is fast, reliable and secured data, displayed in any data visualization or reporting front-end tool, whether it is Power BI, Qlik, Tableau, Excel or any other. As it sits on top of the SQL Server stack with full visibility, both on-prem and in the cloud are available and readily customizable.

“Through this new agreement, Finesse can now help their customers implement Discovery Hub®, resulting in a self-service data discovery environment for their business users,” said Jørgen Kaufmann, CEO, TimeXtender. “Finesse will help customers achieve access to their trustworthy data much faster than before. And Discovery Hub® leverages the power of automation to increase agility, improve access to governed data and facilitate the journey to compliance.”
