Fluent in your environnement and proficient with our tools
I recently stumbled upon an old school photography family business. I decided it would be great to print photos from my phone to send to my sons great grandmother. I went to a shop with an impressive array of kiosks with tens of different data cables, wifi, infrared and bluetooth, the owner even had advices on USB stick formatting for you. But after quite a few visits and enjoyable discussions they never manage to print the photos.
This reminded me of so many of our client’s experiences, who started by buying “all in one integrated reporting solutions” including data storage layers, custom query languages and dashboards tools, but struggled to put useful data stories in the hand of their boards or teams.
In the meantime, I was in a Paris neighborhood known as Little Sri Lanka. Out of curiosity I entered a large wedding photography studio. The shop keeper did not speak french or english. I just showed him my phone and which gallery software I’m using. I selected a few photos, which he transferred to his industrial printing station, cropped, color balanced and printed it in 5 minutes for less that 5 euros…
What I find striking here is that:
- we obviously shared a common “narrow” goal, to make my project succeed
- he was fluent with my environnement and proficient with his tools
This is also how Toucan Toco brings operational excellence to your business. We are familiar with your data environnement, you can expect us to understand quickly how you work, and we are focusing on building a product which “just works” when it comes to transforming your data insights into actions.
Does one… okay, two things well :)
There is nothing mysterious about our Talend integration. It allows you to automate your Toucan data pipieline from Talend. This is built from simple Toucan features, tested on numerous projects:
Remote data sources allow Toucan Toco to get your data wherever it is, instead of uploading it to our servers. In this cases I use a secure FTP server. The Toucan Toco Operations API allows you to completely automate the import, validation and publication of data in a Toucan Toco app using a simple HTTP REST API.
In conclusion, here we have been focusing delivering simple features based on very widespread standard. They are easy to understand and use, but their combination can lead to quite advanced use cases and workflows.
