AtScale | March 17, 2022

AtScale
AtScale, a leader in providing semantic layer solutions for modern business intelligence and data science teams, has been named a Snowflake Premier Partner. While using the full flexibility and potential of the Snowflake Data Cloud, AtScale can help Snowflake users construct a semantic layer for data and analytics that streamlines and accelerates business intelligence (BI) and data science initiatives.

Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances at Snowflake said that “We are thrilled for AtScale to become a Premier Partner for Snowflake. AtScale’s semantic layer provides a single location for defining business metrics and model features that can be consumed across popular BI and artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML) applications.”

Companies may use AtScale to provide a single source of managed enterprise metrics and analytical dimensions that can be accessed from any BI tool. A semantic layer built on AtScale is a highly scalable method of linking cloud data to data consumers. The combination of AtScale and Snowflake provides a strong platform for teams to build up sophisticated business insight programs, increasing analyst productivity, shortening time to insight, and generating business results from AI/ML and analytics investments.

“By working with AtScale and Snowflake, teams can spend more time discovering insights and less time cleansing and preparing data for use. Most organizations these days utilize multiple data consumption tools, which makes the establishment of a common, consistent source of data even more critical.”

David Mariani, CTO and Founder of AtScale

As a Premier Partner, AtScale has been tested and verified to work seamlessly with Snowflake, providing clients with high-performance access to the company's live cloud data. The two businesses started collaborating in 2019 and have since helped hundreds of joint clients across many industries upgrade their data and analytics programs, simplifying and boosting the process of using data to better decision making and performance. In fact, in 2021, the businesses' combined consumer base grew by more than 200%.

Nick Amabile, CEO of DAS42, a leading provider of cloud-based data analytics consulting and professional services said that “Teaming AtScale’s semantic layer with Snowflake’s Data Cloud creates a powerful platform for customers looking to rapidly drive data-driven decision-making within their organization. A consistent, easy-to-use and scalable data source is critical for today’s fast-moving enterprises.”

Pega Introduces Pega Customer Data Connectors for Deeper, AI-Powered Data Analysis and Better Customer Outcomes

Pega | September 22, 2022

Pegasystems Inc., the low-code platform provider that builds agility into the world's leading organizations, today announced Pega Customer Data Connectors that enable clients to easily connect their existing customer data platforms (CDPs) and other signal providers to Pega Customer Decision Hub™. These connectors allow organizations to stream signals from high-value platforms like Adobe, Celebrus, and ZineOne, and activate customer insights in real time with AI-powered decisioning. Many organizations use CDPs to manage an overwhelming influx of streaming data from customers, channels, and lines of business, with the goal of identifying customer intent and better predicting behavior. But CDPs alone lack the level of decisioning and orchestration required to truly optimize an end-to-end customer experience, so insights often sit untapped as data stagnates and quickly becomes useless. To help brands operationalize that data more efficiently, Pega has introduced connectors between the market's top data providers and Pega Customer Decision Hub – the always-on 'brain' centralizing AI-powered decisioning across inbound, outbound, owned, and paid channels. These connectors allow organizations to input their most valuable data sources – such as streams of raw event data or curated behavioral signals – into Pega's real-time AI, then optimize customer interactions using next-best-action decisioning without being locked into a specific data vendor. These out-of-the-box Pega Customer Data Connectors enable clients to activate well-curated data from many of the world's most popular platforms, including: Adobe Experience Platform, by integrating Adobe profile and segment signals. The connector streams real-time segment membership data directly to Pega Customer Decision Hub, where it can be used to power machine learning models, define engagement policies, and power omnichannel next-best-action decisions. ZineOne, by connecting ZineOne's in-session propensity-to-purchase scores with Pega's next-best-action decisioning. These scores help brands better target consumers who are likely to buy, flag on-the-fence customers for re-targeting, and trigger journey-specific actions – all without incurring incremental acquisition costs. Celebrus, by integrating Celebrus' real-time data capture, identity management, and signal curation capabilities. Celebrus helps brands capture first-party data without tagging and convert that raw data into high-value intent signals. The connector feeds those insights to Pega, which uses its propensity modeling to identify and trigger relevant messages and help significantly increase response rates. "Every day, companies leave a goldmine of insight on the table because their vendors lack the decisioning capabilities required to operationalize intent, impacting the customer experience. "At the same time, it's unrealistic to expect brands to replace the customer data solutions they've already invested in. That's why Pega is launching Pega Customer Data Connectors - to help clients activate data at its fullest potential, with the freedom to use their CDP of choice. They can feed in whatever event streams or curated signals make sense for their business and Pega's AI will help put it to work – and use the insights to build much deeper, more valuable customer relationships." Matt Nolan, senior director, product marketing, Pega About Pega Pega provides a powerful low-code platform that builds agility into the world's leading organizations so they can adapt to change. Clients use our AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation to solve their most pressing business challenges – from personalizing engagement to automating service to streamlining operations. Since 1983, we've built our scalable and flexible architecture to help enterprises meet today's customer demands while continuously transforming for tomorrow.
