TimeXtender and Blue BI Announce New Partnership for Italy

Agreement Allows Blue BI to Now Offer its Customers TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub®

AARHUS, Denmark & Italy – March 2018 TimeXtender, a software leader dedicated to helping businesses build a data-driven organization, today announced its partnership with Blue BI. This agreement allows Blue BI to offer its existing and future clients across Italy Discovery Hub® by TimeXtender. Discovery Hub® is an integrated approach to IT architecture behind business intelligence that helps organizations decrease time to business insights and data-driven decision making by automating all that can be automated in the data discovery, BI, and analytics lifecycle.

Discovery Hub® brings together the best of both worlds: data governance and self-service BI. It enables business users to rapidly explore and interpret trustworthy data, while at the same time freeing IT and BI specialists from tedious and redundant tasks. By leveraging the power of automation, companies can increase agility, easily access governed data and facilitate the journey to compliance. Unlike other approaches, which rely on a mix of tools and vendors for scripting, data prep and data blending, Discovery Hub® is a fully integrated, end-to-end solution, delivering faster time to value with fewer resources.

“Blue BI has been helping companies for many years with their analytics and business intelligence needs,” said Nicola Celli, CEO of Blue BI. “But with TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub®, we’re able to offer businesses next-generation data discovery technology, which will result in a reduction in the time it takes users to access their trustworthy corporate data.  We’re excited to proceed with this new partnership.” 


Traditional project work flows simply can’t keep up with the volume, variety, velocity of new data sources, or growing number of BI and analytics front-end tools, but Discovery Hub® does so by accelerating data onboarding, managing multiple BI and analytics tools and keeping track of all corporate data. In essence, future proofing the enterprise. The interactive and user-oriented interface, with drag and drop function, enables any user with domain knowledge to rapidly respond to changes and to provide decision makers with the data they need, when and where they need it.

Discovery Hub® combines the power of automation with a metadata-driven approach. The result is fast, reliable and secured data, displayed in any data visualization or reporting front-end tool, whether it is Power BI, Qlik, Tableau, Excel or any other. As it sits on top of the SQL Server stack with full visibility, both on-prem and in the cloud are available and readily customizable.


“TimeXtender and Blue BI share a common desire in helping customers substantially reduce the time it takes for them to access insights,” said Sergio Ferrari, Regional Director of Italy at  TimeXtender. “By partnering with TimeXtender, Blue BI can now offer customers Discovery Hub® by TimeXtender across Italy to help companies dramatically reduce time to insights, provide easier data access and strengthen analytical efficiency.”
