ThoughtSpot, which is kind of Google for data analysis within a business, has raised $50 million in Series C round of funding, because its technology is pretty damn cool.

Business intelligence is tricky, time-consuming, and historically has required some genius analyst crunching numbers while lay-people for whom datasets and spreadsheets are the devil incarnate wait around for a message from the data mountaintop.
