Cloud-based platform offers near real-time analysis for actionable insight

London, United Kingdom and Short Hills, NJ,  – November 10, 2016:   Focused on ensuring business leaders have timely access to mission-critical data to make informed decisions, Rosslyn Data Technologies, and Dun & Bradstreet, today announced that they will partner to provide procurement professionals with self-service insights when, where, and how they need them.  

The joint offering, available now, uses the RAPid cloud-based platform self-service model to integrate global business data – including line item transactional details and category classifications into customizable spend analytics - to help procurement professionals better identify and manage ever-changing business risks and market opportunities.    The solution aims to help organizations find greater savings faster and gain deeper insights into their supply base.

“It is no longer enough for decision-makers to just have a view of their operations,” said Roger Bullen, CEO, Rosslyn Data Technologies. “In today’s interconnected world, business leaders need to have contextual insights without having to wait days or weeks. Fueled by the best commercial data from Dun & Bradstreet, Rosslyn Data Technologies offers customers the best self-service tools in one cloud platform used by thousands of business decision-makers around the world.”

With data from Dun & Bradstreet, Rosslyn Data Technologies is addressing a gap in the market by giving companies self-service tools to access, manage and create unique proprietary business insights previously unavailable with traditional, IT-centric technologies.

“Our joint offering brings together the world’s most comprehensive database of supplier intelligence with ground-breaking, self-service spend analytics technology,” said Brian Alster, global head of Compliance and Supply, Dun & Bradstreet.  “Companies will now have the power to seamlessly manage the entire spend analytics process completely in the Cloud – from data extraction, to cleansing and enrichment of supplier information, to visualization.  The result is faster speed-to-insight for actionable intelligence.”

Rosslyn Data Technologies, which pioneered self-service analytics in the cloud with an industry-first spend analysis solution launched in 2009, empowers customers with a ready-to-use cloud platform that provides business users with self-service tools to easily extract, integrate, cleanse and enrich data for use in analytics. Deployed in days, clients are able to obtain a return on their solution investment in weeks.
