Google adds Periscope Data to single sign-on platform; include pre-integrated SAML access to boost workflows

Periscope Data has been added to Google’s catalog of pre-integrated SAML apps for single-sign-on (SSO). SAML has become a popular enterprise SSO standards, enabling users to access all of their enterprise cloud applications, including admin consoles, after signing in just one time.

Google supports nearly 800 applications with pre-integrated SSO support in their third-party apps catalog, and Periscope Data is among the latest to join the list. Instead of adding Periscope Data as a custom app to their SSO list, administrators will be able to select Periscope Data directly to enable simple and secure access for their team members.

Periscope Data builds software that turns data teams into superheroes. Its Unified Data Platform addresses the complete analytics lifecycle, allowing data teams to ingest, store, analyze, visualize and report on data all from one connected platform. This empowers them to collaborate and drive faster insight, while allowing businesses to foster a data-driven culture around a single source of truth. Periscope Data serves over 1000 customers globally, including Adobe, Crunchbase, EY, Flexport, New Relic, Supercell, Tinder and ZipRecruiter.

Periscope Data also supports single-sign-on options for Okta, OneLogin and Microsoft Azure Active Directory.

“Unlike most data analytics platforms, Periscope Data is able to get up and running to deliver insights in a matter of minutes, not days or weeks,” said Harry Glaser, co-founder and CEO of Periscope Data. “We’re focused on building a more efficient and secure workflow for data teams to complete their analyses, and we’re proud to have Google’s support in improving the Periscope Data experience.”

Periscope also announced in March an expansion of its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help streamline the analytics workflows of data teams. Periscope Data will now be recognized as an Advanced Tier Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) for recognition of its overall business investment on AWS.   

By integrating Amazon Redshift, Periscope Data eliminates several steps to simplify a data team’s workflow, without needing to jump from product to product. Periscope Data also extends Amazon Redshift with valuable “power user” innovations to help data analysts build cloud-based data marts and data warehouses.

Periscope’s Unified Data Platform builds on its analytics and data ingest tools with a built-in, fully managed data warehouse based on Amazon Redshift. This allows data teams to connect to their full range of business data and easily store and manage it for insightful queries and analysis. Achieving APN Advanced Tier status puts Periscope Data among a select group of companies, giving professional data teams access to more than 200 bleeding-edge innovations on AWS.

Periscope Data is also working to leverage Amazon Redshift Spectrum and other innovations on AWS into its platform.

“We are thrilled to work with AWS and continue building around Amazon Redshift as a core component of our Unified Data Platform,” said Harry Glaser, co-founder and CEO of Periscope Data. “Today, the best data warehouses are built and created on the cloud. We’re already driving extremely fast analytics performance with Amazon Redshift, but we believe this relationship will help us empower data teams to be even smarter and more collaborative on our platform and deliver more value to their businesses.”

“Periscope Data is a valued customer, driving significant workloads that convert raw data into actionable insights,” said Vidhya Srinivasan, General Manager of Amazon Redshift, Amazon Web Services. “The combination of Periscope’s Unified Data Platform with Amazon Redshift and Redshift Spectrum delivers the performance and scale data teams need to make fast, data-driven decisions to improve business outcomes.”
