The amount of data managed within organizations is increasing dramatically due to multiple touch points across many platforms, external access points, and the increasing complexities required to gain insight into data assets across the data ecosystem. Today’s typical business, regardless of size, requires a data management solution through a combination of its own built-in tools and third-party solutions to store, manage, and operationalize data. And if these companies aren’t taking advantage of a well-designed data platform, they are most likely inefficiently storing data in silos, making it impossible to gain insights for go-to-market activities and drive revenue growth.
Thus, lies the main challenge of the data explosion and data touchpoints required for organizations to succeed. With each new data silo added to a company’s mix, a unique and independent set of data pipelines emerges that need to be effectively integrated and managed alongside all of your other data sources, in order to provide a 360 view degrees for the whole company. That means the data must be available in a central repository (such as a data warehouse), in a format that is ready for real-time analysis to drive the use of that data for successful business outcomes.
In many industries, large players are incentivized to keep data hidden within their own platforms without regard for interoperability, making it even more difficult to create a single source of information for analysis and reporting. Without this single source of truth, it’s impossible for companies to take advantage of the advanced analytics tools that enable success in the hyper-competitive and fast-paced world of actionable data insights.
Recognizing this critical challenge, especially for small and medium-sized organizations that do not have sufficient in-house software engineering resources, San Francisco-based Integrate.io set out to offer the first real-code-free data pipeline platform to make it simple from the start. finally. end data pipeline management, monitoring and alerts. Using application connectors for hundreds of the most popular software tools across industries, Integrate.io enables organizations to unify all their data in one central data warehouse quickly and reliably without code.
In order to help companies ensure their single sources of truth are up-to-date and accurate, Integrate.io has also just launched its new free-to-use data observability offering. Your existing customer base already has access, including companies like 7-11, Heineken, Deloitt, and SamSung. Data Observability, now widely available, ensures the reliability of upstream data for business owners, monitoring data inaccuracies or problems in real time and sending alerts the moment a problem arises anywhere in the data warehouse. data.
“Within minutes we had monitoring and alerts on our three critical data warehouse tables, which helps ensure the health of our data in real time and allows our data team to sleep better at night,” said Jason Gilmore, director executive of online education provider. Treehouse, an early adopter of Integrate.io’s new product offering. That kind of constant 360-degree visibility into all of their mission-critical data gives companies the assurance that their data warehouse, dashboards, and data products are healthy.
“We keep hearing from our customers that they were struggling to monitor the health of their data warehouse and that it can take days or weeks to realize they have data inconsistencies.” said Donal Tobin, CEO of Integrate.io. “Businesses need the ability to be alerted in real time on any issues that arise, as they can cause major problems downstream. We believe that all companies should have 100% peace of mind with their data, which is why we launched our free Data Observability offer, which allows all companies to set up monitoring and alerts on their data sets.”
