Mountain View, California - May 9, 2023 - ThoughtSpot, the AI-Powered Analytics company, today announced a series of new product capabilities during their annual customer conference Beyond 2023, to help companies across the globe deliver modern data experiences that advance business outcomes and deliver impact. These new capabilities include new ways to search data, new connections to data sources and platforms, new ways to collaborate on analytics, and ways to experience all this power without even logging into a BI tool.
ThoughtSpot also announced Monitor for Mobile, delivering users proactive notifications pushed to their mobile device as KPIs change, paired with an explanation of the key drivers and change analysis, so users can make data-driven decisions whenever and wherever they are.
Introducing the modern data experience
We are at a defining moment in the history of computing. Generative AI and foundational language models have redefined how machines and humans interact, and in the process, unleashed a new era for the world of data. For the first time, people can interact, interrogate, and glean insights from their data as easily as they chat with a friend or colleague, with these insights going beyond the traditional BI tool and meeting users when and where they make decisions. Organizations face a new challenge, however, in ensuring this ease of interaction doesn’t sacrifice the specificity or accuracy required in an analytics context.
Since its founding, ThoughtSpot has always worked toward a mission of creating a more fact driven world through the power of search, AI, and self-service analytics. Now, with the rise of new technologies like GPT, combined with growing partnerships, new products, and new integrations, the entire data experience has been reimagined.
Experience your data in a new way
Today, we are introducing ThoughtSpot Sage, an AI-powered search experience that lets every user, regardless of technical skills, leverage foundational language models to get insights from their data through natural language search. Our patented dynamic search architecture paired with a foundational model delivers the flexibility of natural language with accuracy, governance and reliability your business expects. Currently in private preview, this includes:
“At Goldcast, our objective has been to empower our business users to make more data-driven decisions in their day-to-day. ThoughtSpot Sage enables every Goldcast team member to find insights by asking natural language questions, all while providing a trustworthy and well-governed experience.

Collaborate on your data in a new way
Complementing ThoughtSpot Sage and the new search experience are several enhancements to ThoughtSpot Liveboards that promote collaboration, efficiency, and data fluency. This includes:
Improved storytelling and interactivity with note tiles and custom sizing that can be used to add branding, explain confusing terminology, or provide context to the data. By utilizing notes, analysts can expand upon the data narrative and assist business users in quickly understanding and analyzing their data.
Use new kinds of data
No matter where your data lives or what kind of data it is, you must be able to bring the modern data experience to it. Today, we are announcing new platform abilities and connectors that allow users to tap into new kinds of data from new places, providing our customers with greater flexibility and choice in how they build their stack and leverage ThoughtSpot as the experience layer.

Foundational models change everything we’ve known to be true in the world of BI. Today, we bring continued innovation and partnership in helping companies embrace a new, modern data experience powered by responsible, ethical AI,” said Sudheesh Nair, CEO, ThoughtSpot.
