Striim Introduces Striim Cloud, a Real-Time Data Integration SaaS

Striim | February 25, 2022

Data Integration
Customers may offer real-time data to enable next-generation business intelligence and analytics with Striim Cloud.

Striim, Inc. announced today the universal availability of Strim Cloud, the quickest way for businesses to deliver real-time data and insights to enable corporate intelligence and decision-making in the digital economy. The Striim Cloud platform for real-time streaming data integration and analytics is the industry's first and only fully managed SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) platform. Customers can simply design real-time data pipelines to stream trillions of events each day with just a few clicks, all while benefiting from enterprise-grade operational, security, and management features. Customers can revolutionise their organisations by adopting new cloud models, digitising legacy systems, and updating their application infrastructure using Striim Cloud's zero-maintenance, infinitely scalable platform.

Operations in a variety of industries such as retail, manufacturing, logistics/supply chain, healthcare are being driven to become more responsive and reliable as a result of recent shifts in the worldwide economy and a more distributed workforce. As a result of these changes, there is a huge demand for real-time data. Operations leaders can utilise analytics to gauge demand and cost-to-serve with real-time data and make informed decisions. To stay relevant and successful in today's digital economy, the customer experience (CX) must also be individualised and differentiated.

ETL solutions from the past were not built to meet the needs of today's fast-paced businesses. Real-time applications connected to a modern customer experience, business intelligence, decision-making, real-time operations, and more cannot be supported by the traditional "batch" approach of data integration. Customers need real-time systems to ingest, process, query, and analyse data in order to deliver insights and enable real-time decisions. Data and analytics inform customer strategies and tactics across the entire organisation, but in order to be effective, customers need real-time systems to ingest, process, query, and analyse data in order to deliver insights and enable real-time decisions.

Striim Cloud is the only solution that provides real-time autonomous data pipelines, allowing businesses of all sizes, from FORTUNE 500 companies to startups, to migrate their outdated application designs to contemporary, cloud-native architectures with minimal downtime. The platform detects source database changes with change data capture (CDC), minimising the impact on other activities and ensuring the most up-to-date data possible. Customers might query, enrich, and execute analysis on a live data stream in real time instead of, after it has arrived at the destination database or data warehouse, allowing them to build apps on the pipeline and increase data capabilities without sacrificing speed.

Striim Cloud provides the organisation with a number of capabilities for digital transformation:

Striim Cloud gives you fast access to what's going on right now in a variety of apps: IT can quickly know what's going on, from consumer behaviour to marketing campaigns to supply-chain operations, and more, using real-time streaming data. The real-time streaming approach of Striim Cloud is intrinsically superior to older batch ETL techniques.
The cloud's simplicity, elasticity, and scalability are delivered by Striim Cloud: Customers can see all of their data pipelines in one place. They may create new pipelines or alter old ones, while Striim takes care of the heavy labour in the background. Cloud-native services and integrations are supported by Striim Cloud. This foundation enables businesses to quickly adjust to changing market conditions.
Enterprise innovation is boosted by Striim Cloud Enterprise: Enterprises get a competitive advantage by developing apps based on real-time data. Striim Cloud makes it simple to experiment with new apps based on data.

Data is automatically integrated into systems like Azure Synapse Analytics, Google Big Query, and Snowflake using Striim Cloud. Striim Cloud helps enterprises to fuel business information and decision-making in order to fulfil the demands of the digital economy while also providing an unrivalled data-driven customer experience.

Airbyte No-Code Builder Revolutionizes Data Integrations, Creates Connectors in Just Minutes

Businesswire | May 19, 2023

Airbyte, creators of the fastest-growing open-source data integration platform, today announced availability of its new no-code connector builder that makes it possible to easily and quickly create new connectors for data integrations. The builder enables non-engineers, such as data analysts, to create an extract, load, transform (ELT) connector within just five minutes – a process that traditionally could take more than a week. This announcement comes as an expansion of Airbyte's efforts to democratize data integration. Last year, Airbyte released a low-code, YAML-based Connector Development Kit, which facilitated faster and easier connector development. Now, with the no-code connector builder, Airbyte is reshaping the paradigm of data pipeline development. An Airbyte user survey showed 60% of respondents are having to build custom connectors at least every three months because of the need to pull in data from so many diverse sources. The new tool is a game changer for companies struggling to address their long tail of connector needs. With the no-code connector builder, companies no longer need to rely solely on off-the-shelf, existing connectors when considering an ELT solution. Instead, they can now easily build their own connectors to meet their unique data integration needs. “With businesses adding more data from increasingly diverse sources for analysis and decision-making, we’re making it easy to create custom connectors to serve every possible need,” said John Lafleur, co-founder and chief operating officer, Airbyte. “The combination of our new builder along with our open-source model means more data connectors for our user community of more than 10,000.” This video has more information on the Airbyte no-code connector builder, including these benefits. User-friendly Interface: The no-code connector builder is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, enabling individuals without a technical background to navigate and build connectors with ease. Rapid Connector Development: The tool drastically reduces the time needed to create an ELT connector, from over a week to just five minutes. Flexibility: By allowing companies to build their own connectors, Airbyte empowers them to address their unique data integration needs without having to rely solely on pre-existing connectors. Wide Availability: The no-code connector builder is available on both Airbyte Open Source and Airbyte Cloud, allowing for broad access and usage. Airbyte's no-code connector builder is a testament to the company's commitment to making data integration more accessible, flexible, and efficient for companies of all sizes and individuals of varying technical abilities. With more than 300 connectors, Airbyte is already the platform with the most connectors in the market. But there are still thousands of connectors needed. By removing the need for complex coding and significantly reducing the time required to build an ELT connector, this tool is set to revolutionize the way companies approach their long tail of connector needs. Since the beta release of the Airbyte connector builder two months ago, more than 100 connectors have been built and deployed to production by users to support critical data movement workloads for long-tail connectors. Here are comments from two users of the beta version about their experience with the new Airbyte connector builder. "The Airbyte no-code connector builder UI is border-line magic. A common data warehouse might have 10 to several hundred APIs integrated. Most, if not all of them, are HTTPS REST APIs meaning historically you'll have a lot of boilerplate code written for each and any integration. Furthermore, a good and stable integration not only needs to transfer data, it needs to implement retries, stream slices, checkpoints and many more – again resulting in copy/paste boilerplate code. Using the no-code connector builder, all of that is provided out of the box. Simply add your API details in a user-friendly point-and-click interface and the Airbyte builder automatically creates a fully-fledged, feature-rich data integration. Where a custom integration normally required days and weeks of work, with the connector builder I'm able to integrate new tools in hours! And all the production-requirements are covered – even Unit- and Integration-Tests are created for you." Andreas Nigg, a Data Architect at DataScienceEngineer “The connector builder has been a true unlock for our backend piping across many dimensions: speed, efficiency, reliability and ease of use. It has enabled us to convert endless lines of self-build Python ETL scripts, that carried a lot of technical debt, and was tedious to update at the same pace as our operations clock-rate, into beautiful Airbyte connectors that just work. We've had a blast building them and enjoyed swift and highly-qualified support from the Airbyte team.” Tobias Troelsen, Chief Analytics Officer at Capturi Airbyte makes moving data easy and affordable across almost any source and destination, helping enterprises provide their users with access to the right data for analysis and decision-making. Airbyte has the largest data engineering contributor community – with more than 800 contributors – and the best tooling to build and maintain connectors with its latest Connector builder. About Airbyte Airbyte is the open-source data integration leader running in the safety of your cloud and syncing data from applications, APIs, and databases to data warehouses, lakes, and other destinations. Airbyte was co-founded by Michel Tricot (former director of engineering and head of integrations at Liveramp and RideOS) and John Lafleur (serial entrepreneur of dev tools and B2B). The company is headquartered in San Francisco with a distributed team around the world. To learn more, visit

Deepens Integrations with Databricks Unity Catalog and dbt Cloud to Power Data Intelligence Across the Modern Data Stack

Globenewswire | April 05, 2023

Alation Inc., the leader in enterprise data intelligence solutions, today announced expanded partnerships with Databricks, the lakehouse company, and dbt Labs, the pioneer in analytics engineering, to extend knowledge, collaboration, and trust across the modern data stack. Joint customers can now easily integrate rich metadata from Databricks Unity Catalog and leverage a new connector that provides support for dbt Core and dbt Cloud in Alation. As a result, users have a better understanding of their data landscape and can view underlying data changes and transformations to power data intelligence. In the modern data stack, data lives in a variety of source systems and formats in preparation for transformation and analysis. To find, understand, and trust data that spans multiple technologies across an organization, users need a single-pane-of-glass view of the most valuable data within their ecosystem. With these recent integrations, metadata is visible within Alation, enabling users to better understand the data being leveraged, as well as its historical use, to ensure business decisions are made on high-quality and trusted data. “The combination of Alation plus Databricks Unity Catalog, and Alation plus dbt Cloud, brings much-needed data intelligence with critical components of the modern data stack,” said Diby Malakar, VP of product management, Alation. “Metadata offers invaluable context to data users seeking to better understand their data’s path and collaborate across the organization. We’re looking forward to growing our partnerships with Databricks and dbt Labs to help data teams stay on track, work together, and increase confidence in data-driven decisions.” Power Self-Discovery with Databricks Unity Catalog Alation connects to more than 100 data sources, including Databricks, dbt Labs, Snowflake, AWS, and Tableau. The expanded connector with Databricks Unity Catalog empowers joint customers to better understand data that lives in their cloud-based technology stack. Organizations that leverage Databricks, which is specifically optimized for cloud environments, process and transform massive quantities of data that span multiple workspaces and systems. Now, with the expanded connector to Databricks Unity Catalog, joint customers can sample and profile data, and compose queries on data from the Databricks Lakehouse, directly in Alation. Sampling provides a preview of a small slice of data, its structure, and how it can be used. Profiling provides a high-level view on the statistics of the data, such as minimum, maximum, median, and null, enabling users to observe potential quality and fit at a glance. Compose, Alation’s SQL query tool, enables users to search data sources with real-time warnings and lowers the barrier to entry with its autocomplete function that generates suggestions as users write queries. Data engineers and data scientists will now benefit from increased self-service at scale, faster migration, and the ability to collaborate inside Alation with enhanced context around the systems being used. “Whether you’re a data owner or user, you need to understand the context around the data being used to accelerate time to value and garner trusted insights,” said Ariel Amster, Director of Strategic Technology Partners at Databricks. “By integrating Unity Catalog with Alation, data teams can easily search across multiple sources and workplaces to power self-discovery and streamline governance. This is a critical step before leveraging any data set, to improve the accuracy of their predictive models, and we’re thrilled to further strengthen our partnership with Alation.” Gain Visibility into Data Changes with dbt Labs Metadata plays a key role in enabling data users to quickly search, discover, and understand their data within Alation – an especially important feature for data engineers as they prepare increasing quantities of data for analysis. The new connector for dbt Core and dbt Cloud extracts dbt descriptions for curated data in Alation, as well as dbt lineage for data warehouses, such as Snowflake, Redshift, and PostgreSQL. As a result, business users can fully understand the changes and transformations made to underlying data. Now, users can navigate, search, curate, flag, tag, and view lineage for data assets built with dbt in one location, increasing productivity and producing higher-quality results. The integration builds upon Alation’s extensive partner network, which utilizes the Open Connector Framework (OCF), and further cements the company’s ongoing commitment to open extensibility. Alation is a Platinum Sponsor at the Fivetran Modern Data Stack Conference, scheduled for April 4-5 in San Francisco, California.
