MELBOURNE, Australia. – September 19, 2019 – Artificial intelligence stands to reshape the very nature of work, adding nearly $16 trillion in value to the global economy by 2030.

Bryce Turner has joined the company as country manager for Australia, leading ThoughtSpot’s efforts throughout Australia and New Zealand. The company also announced Suncorp, NAB, Langs Building Supplies, Bolster, and Claim Central have joined as ThoughtSpot customers, along with new partners RXP and Aginic.

Delivering the Future of Analytics with AI
In order to compete against today’s digital natives, enterprises in every industry are doubling down on the need for insights to inform decision making at all levels of their organization. They’ve invested heavily in technology to capture and store data in their bid to transform. Despite this focus, the complexity and technical sophistication required to analyze this data meant most business users still don’t have access to insights.
ThoughtSpot’s search and AI-driven analytics platform empowers every business user to analyze billions of rows of data using a simple, natural language search. ThoughtSpot’s AI engine SpotIQ leverages this search platform to ask thousands of additional questions, surfacing relevant insights users wouldn’t even know to look for. The company recently launched voice-driven analytics with SearchIQ, giving users the ability to analyze and talk directly to their data using just their voice.
“We wanted to unlock the value in our own data as well as have access to more factual industry information, and ThoughtSpot provides both,” Matthew Day, CIO of Langs Building Supplies. “We are now able to provide useful insights for front-line users when and where it will have most impact, rather than waiting to read about what happened yesterday in a management report.”
“By partnering with ThoughtSpot, we’re able to help our customers unlock unprecedented value from their data by giving them self service access to their data through search and AI. It’s a completely new way of tackling the issue our customers face in getting access to their own data.” said Brett Thebault, Aginic Founder and Director. “I’m excited to work with ThoughtSpot to transform how organizations throughout ANZ utilize their data and make better business decisions.”
Reactions from Leadership
“Enterprises throughout the Asia-Pacific region are hungry to leverage their growing data volumes to drive growth and compete in the global economy, but like their global counterparts, they require new ways of unearthing insights buried in these ever increasing mountains of data if they want to succeed,” said Sunil Mahale, ThoughtSpot VP of APJ. “With a seasoned leader like Bryce at the helm, we’ve got the right team and technology in place to help enterprises throughout Australia and New Zealand transform their operations and succeed.”
“I’ve spent my entire career helping enterprises in ANZ leverage cutting edge technology to innovate and compete in the global marketplace. In today’s world, there’s no technology with more potential than AI,” said Bryce Turner, ThoughtSpot Country Manager, Australia. “When I saw ThoughtSpot, I instantly recognized the value this could bring to enterprises in Australia and New Zealand. I’m incredibly excited to be a part of building this value for businesses throughout ANZ.”
