BOSTON – April 19, 2023 – AtScale, the leading provider of semantic layer solutions for modern business intelligence and data science teams, today shared that it reached the milestone of one billion analytics queries served from cloud data platforms.
This achievement was reached amidst record growth in the volume of queries AtScale orchestrated on behalf of end user analytics applications. The AtScale platform orchestrates analytics queries on cloud data platforms including Snowflake, Databricks, Google BigQuery, Amazon Redshift, and Microsoft Azure Synapse. As a result, AtScale recorded a 256% growth in queried terabytes on cloud data platforms orchestrated by its semantic layer platform in the 12 months ending March 31, 2023.
Every time a user updates or interacts with a business intelligence (BI) dashboard, explores data in Microsoft Excel, or refreshes a data application, a query is run against the underlying data being analyzed. AtScale’s semantic layer solution manages analytics queries from common BI tools and applications, pushing down optimized versions of queries for execution on data platforms, while ensuring that analytics are both fast and cost-efficient. This empowers organizations to confidently scale their data and analytics programs, ensuring costs are predictable and align to the value that’s created – all while simplifying data pipelines and enabling governed self-service analytics for customers.
“Leading companies have grown to recognize the criticality of embedding data and AI-augmented analytics into their everyday decision making,” said Christopher Lynch, Executive Chairman and CEO of AtScale. “AtScale’s semantic layer empowers organizations to better leverage data assets managed on powerful cloud data platforms to scale decision intelligence and foster a data culture that can translate to competitive advantage. This milestone we are celebrating is significant, but we are only scratching the surface.”
The Semantic Layer Category Continues to Gain Momentum
There is growing recognition of the role the semantic layer plays in enterprise analytics to help data teams scale business intelligence, embed analytics within a broader set of applications, and capture the value of AI/ML within augmented analytics. AtScale will hold its second annual Semantic Layer Summit on April 26, 2023 with over 10,000 attendees expected, reflecting a 40% increase over last year’s event. Summit sessions include a keynote featuring research on the Semantic Layer in the Modern Data Stack and a panel discussion of founder-executives from dbt Labs, Stardog, Cube, Starburst, and AtScale.
