GRAX, Inc., a leading SaaS Data Value Platform, is offering a new platform, dubbed History Stream, that allows users to effortlessly stream native SaaS app data stored in their own AWS or Azure cloud data lake into industry-standard tools.
“Businesses depend on their history. The more detail they have about current activities and trends, the better they can react to market changes and predict and shape their own future. Much of this history resides in SaaS applications, but the complexities inherent in making it accessible are enormous. Now, instead of having to code, businesses can make every version of that data widely and securely available with just a few clicks,” said Joe Gaska, CEO of GRAX. “History Stream gives businesses a streamlined, hassle-free, and efficient way to unlock strategic value from SaaS data by pushing it straight from the cloud environment they already own. We un-silo the data and serve it up in a way that is actionable, in whatever tools businesses want to consume it.”
GRAX builds the bridge that businesses need to unleash the power of historical SaaS app data by making it an easily integrated part of their data fabric. It uniquely:
- Enables organizations to control the capture frequency for historical versions of their SaaS application data. This ultra-high capture fidelity is critical to optimizing data protection and downstream analytics.
- Gives businesses complete ownership over their SaaS application history by running and storing it in the customer’s own cloud environment (via GRAX Virtual Appliance), without passing through GRAX or other third-party systems. By allowing customers to Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC), GRAX helps ensure their SaaS data is available for downstream consumption while minimizing security risks.
- Eliminates API and ETL drudgery by using the industry standard Parquet format to make cloud app data readily available virtually anywhere. This includes popular analytics and operational tools such as Tableau, Amazon AWS (Redshift, QuickSite, SageMaker), Microsoft Azure (Power BI, Analysis Services), and SnowFlake, among others.
History Stream will initially support Salesforce application data, which is used by more than 50% of enterprises and 83% of the Fortune 500.For more information about this release, visit www.grax.com.
