We are excited to announce the Bocada Report Library, a new way to share valuable, customized reports across the Bocada community. To celebrate its launch, Bocada is giving customers access to many of Bocada’s most popular backup health and storage monitoring reports in industry leading data visualization solutions, including Power BI, Tableau, and Splunk. Existing users can also share their custom reports for wider use across Bocada’s global community of data protection professionals. Users of these tools can now automatically receive backup performance data collected and normalized via Bocada’s database into their preferred application.
As enterprise organizations adopt data visualization tools for use across their departments or functional teams, there is a growing demand to leverage these tools for all dashboarding and BI needs. By leveraging Bocada’s report templates, IT operations and BI teams can enjoy Bocada’s automated reporting while adopting organization-wide mandates for consistent dashboard and BI interfaces. It also supports broader visibility to Bocada’s normalized backup data across additional key stakeholder groups.
Users leveraging these new reports can still take advantage of Bocada’s best-in-class data protection automations like ticketing and unprotected asset identification to optimize daily activities while aligning with organization-wide initiatives.
