GoodData Foreshadows DaaS Category with GoodData Cloud Native (April)

GoodData announced the launch of GoodData Cloud Native (GoodData.CN), a new cloud-native data analytics platform.

Cloud deployment also eliminates the need to move or copy data.

In a media statement about the news, GoodData CEO Roman Stanek said “If you look at the transformation going on in the market right now, DaaS is the logical next step. DaaS will change the way analytics is done at a fundamental level. Companies have been overspending and seeing little return for more than a decade.
