Prepare for today’s data and you’re ready for tomorrow’s challenges
Today’s always-on economy is generating data at ever-increasing rates. You know it’s essential to be data-driven and use that data to react and innovate quickly so you can outpace your competition. What if you could simplify data prep and provisioning? What if you could more easily collaborate with your data analysts, sharing data insights across teams? What if you could do all this and realize a time savings of up to 40%?
Used in conjunction with Toad® Data Point, Toad Intelligence Central is a cost-effective, server–based application that transfers power back to your business. Improve collaboration among Toad users through secure, governed access to SQL scripts, project artifacts, provisioned data and automation workflows. Easily abstract structured and unstructured data sources through advanced data connectivity to create refreshable datasets for use by any Toad user.
Share all Toad artifacts — including entity relationship diagrams, query files, automation scripts, SQL files and more — with other Toad users.
Manage permissions and access rights to shared folders and files for a governed working environment.
Create automation scripts in Toad Data Point, publish them to Toad Intelligence Central and schedule them for execution on the server.
Enable administrators to better manage users and teams, plus easily add or remove users.
Access data directly from the source through built-in connectivity to relational and non-relational sources.
Connect and share data with users of third-party visualization tools, including Microsoft Excel, Tableau, or Qlik Sense and others.
2TB dedicated data disk or striped over 2-3 spindles
4TB striped over 3-4 spindles
Tip: For higher numbers of active users, disk performance (on ProgramData\Dell\Toad Intelligence Central\) will improve significantly if the data is striped across multiple spindles to enable concurrent I/O operations. This is especially true when Toad Intelligence Central snapshots or data sets are heavily used.
