Untethered Data Connectivity

Enable Self-Service, Low Code, & No Code Integration

Organizations need frictionless access to data - on their schedule, for their use cases, accessible across a growing batch of tools. It's no longer just IT managers selecting applications and accessing data on a "need-to-know" basis. It's departments and individual users accessing in a self-service, continuous fashion from all their favorite analytics and data-oriented tools.

The reality is, you can't wait for every data/analytics platform to beat a path to your API door or leave it to your customers' overtaxed IT departments to create the integrations between your stack and the greater ecosystem.

Standards-based drivers provide a universal bridge between your data, and the world of BI & Analytics. We can help.

Build Your Own
