Accelerate Data-Driven Decisions at Scale
AtScale is the only solution that allows Excel users to connect in real time to data in Snowflake. This is done through AtScale’s Universal Semantic Layer, which translates MDX queries from Excel into Snowflake-specific SQL instantly. AtScale’s intelligent data virtualization capability allows multiple data sources, both in the cloud and on-premise, to be presented as a single data view to Excel and other business intelligence tools, greatly enhancing users’ data mining power. AtScale provides Excel users with fast, easy access to a consistent data view on Snowflake, while virtualizing data, accelerating query times, and reducing costs.
On average, query performance with AtScale on Snowflake is 4x faster. The gains are more dramatic when queries are run during high user concurrency: with larger enterprises running multiple queries at the same time, with AtScale, performance is 14x faster.
Control Complexity and Cost of Analytics
A primary obstacle to cloud migration is the potential negative impact on business users, including downtime, re-training, and lack of available data. AtScale reduces this risk by providing a logical view of an enterprise’s data that persists regardless of where the data is stored, thereby eliminating the need to re-write applications or re-train employees on new software. AtScale does not require Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) to its platform, eliminating expensive, time consuming and risky processes while speeding query response times. Users can access the data they need through Excel without worrying about where it is stored or how it is managed, and costs are reduced to the business because of the accelerated automation of data preparation to reach this stage. In fact, compute costs for Snowflake with AtScale are 3.7x cheaper.
Get One Consistent and Compliant View of Business Metrics and Definitions
AtScale integrates natively into existing enterprise security deployments while layering on additional protections. AtScale’s patented technology gives administrators complete control of users’ data access at a granular level across all data platforms. Companies can restrict data access based on user roles, e.g., a U.S. marketing user will not be able to pull information on global accounts, even if that information is available in the database. The platform complies to JWT, CORS, and REST standards for API security, and offers seamless, transparent support for platform-level security technologies and 3rd party solutions. The single centralized workspace for business metrics and definitions provides data availability while mitigating all of the risk associated with compliance.
Mitigate Risks Associated with Data and Analytics
Within an enterprise, data resides in siloes all across the business, often in insecure environments, constantly proliferating and in flux. AtScale eliminates the risk associated with this “shadow IT” by providing tools and applications direct access using the SQL and MDX languages. AtScale’s Universal Semantic Layer provides a live connection to data for ad-hoc query analysis.
