Snowplow launches Data Product Accelerators, Snowplow BDP Cloud and Enterprise updates

Snowplow | November 03, 2022

Snowplow, the industry leader in Data Creation and behavioral data, has announced the availability of the first of its Data Product Accelerators (DPAs)— recipes designed to help accelerate the journey from ideation to outcome when designing business-critical data products. The company has also announced preview availability of new offerings within its Behavioral Data Platform (BDP) portfolio. Data Product Accelerators Snowplow DPAs mark the next evolution of Data Creation, the category founded by Snowplow that involves the deliberate creation of data to power AI and advanced data applications. These DPAs lay the foundation for the fast creation of data apps, providing a step-by-step guide or referencing data architecture to effortlessly deliver high-impact use cases that solve specific business needs or problems. For example, the Composable CDP DPA will use Databricks, machine learning, and Hightouch to enable the creation of a composable CDP—which an organization could use to collect behavioral data from all customer touchpoints and build a single customer view, to better understand customer behavior and power personalization at scale. “Across industries, organizations know they need to be doing more with data. They know that simply extracting data is not enough—they need to create data that’s meaningful to their unique situation. Yet, in an emerging field like this, we felt that we could do more to share best practices and get outcomes into the hands of Data teams and their organizations. These DPAs will help our customers to easily understand and experience the value of Snowplow, in a context that is highly meaningful to them” said Snowplow President, Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Nick King. The DPAs will be available in an online library and soon to be released within the Snowplow platform, and will include a high-level solution overview, clear implementation process, and technical accelerators to help organizations bring their data products to market faster. There are four DPAs available at launch, including Advanced Analytics for Web (both Snowflake and Databricks), Composable CDP with Predictive ML Modeling, Advanced Analytics for Hybrid Mobile, and Advanced Analytics for Mobile. Preview availability of Snowplow BDP Cloud and BDP Enterprise BDP Cloud Snowplow has also announced the preview of Snowplow BDP Cloud, a new iteration of the behavioral data platform that empowers organizations to create, evolve, and manage behavioral data at scale. Fast to implement, Snowplow BDP Cloud is targeting EU and North American markets initially—removing the burden of deploying Snowplow in your own environment, and ensuring GDPR, and other regulatory compliance. Snowplow BDP Cloud is available as a private preview and customers can sign up here to gain access. BDP Enterprise Available today, BPE Enterprise customers are able to take advantage of the Tracking Catalog. This new feature provides the ability to create an organizational wide view of their tracking architecture, which allows teams to effectively discover, evolve, and manage versioning for their events and entities. Team members of all technical levels can find out about the event, entities, and properties collected by Snowplow. This is particularly helpful for Data Product Managers, a role which requires fast and effective data discovery. “Using the Tracking Catalog allows us to review the graph of events and entities holistically - with the goal being to review our tracking architecture and increase the quality of our event collection," said UK's AutoTrader Engineering Platform and Data Director, Darren Haken. "It can also provide a non-technical view to our Product Managers - helping them understand what events they are collecting on the product.” The BDP Portfolio The new Snowplow BDP portfolio of Cloud and Enterprise is designed to help make advanced analytics available to more businesses. Alex Dean, Snowplow’s co-founder and CEO highlighted the results achieved by current customers. “Already, customers like Strava, Gousto, and DPG Media are forging ahead with Data Creation using Snowplow,” he said. “These new offerings will pave the way for more organizations across the globe to tap into the rich possibilities of using behavioral data to power advanced analytics and AI applications.” About Snowplow Snowplow generates, governs and models high-quality, granular behavioral data, ready for use in AI, ML, and Advanced Analytics applications. When integrated with other tools from the modern data stack, Snowplow can power a wide variety of advanced use cases, allowing organizations to drive significant business value with behavioral data. Data products built on top of Snowplow include the composable CDP, first-party digital analytics and ML-powered churn reduction for subscription businesses.

The result empowers organizations to more quickly create and deploy intelligent applications at large scale and achieve greater value from their data.

Tellius Enhances Decision Intelligence Platform to Unify Insights Across Disparate Datasets

Tellius | November 10, 2022

Tellius today announced the latest version of its decision intelligence platform with new features including Multi-Business View Vizpads. The enhancements in Tellius 4.0 will help users unify insights for more holistic views, accelerate ad hoc analysis in an enterprise-controlled manner, and get faster onboarding and time to insights. Introducing Multi-Business View Vizpads As the number of dashboards grow in a company, so does the amount of context switching and stitchwork to get the full picture of what is happening in the business to make better decisions. As a result, most organizations today are experiencing disconnected decision-making—leading to missed opportunities to increase revenue and improve customer retention. To reduce this friction, Tellius has added Multi-Business View Vizpads (MBV Vizpads) to its platform, unifying analysis across disparate data sources. Now, users can gain greater visibility into data across sources without needing to toggle through multiple dashboards, enabling better collaboration, efficiency, and decision-making across different functions. For example, marketing teams could use MBV Vizpads to view Google Analytics site traffic alongside Salesforce data for an omni-view of the journey from visitor to prospect to customer, all in one place. This data can then be fed into Tellius’ AI-driven decision intelligence engine to uncover the what, why, and how that informs better business decisions. “Tellius recognizes that business decisions are rarely narrow in scope, so the new ability for VizPads to work across Business Views is important. But I think they go further than just decision support — it’s decision management. For a well-governed business, the ability to track and evaluate outcomes is just as critical as the decision itself," said Donald Farmer, a data and analytics product expert and Principal at TreeHive Strategy Services. Delivering enterprise-grade ad hoc analysis and faster time to insights In addition to introducing MBV Vizpads, Tellius also rolled out a host of other features, including: Guided walkthroughs, in-app chat, and feedback support to improve the onboarding and user experience, empowering customers to realize value from insights faster than ever before Enhanced search disambiguation and date operators to make Tellius’ search functionality more robust Default User Groups, Spark SQL support, and OAuth support for Snowflake Audit logs to deliver superior enterprise-grade decision intelligence capabilities. This platform enhancement news comes on the heels of Tellius’ $16 million Series B funding round led by Baird Capital. Tellius also received significant industry recognition for its decision intelligence platform this year, including being named a Visionary in the 2022 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for Analytics and BI Platforms and a representative vendor in the 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Multipersona Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms. “We’ve made a fundamental shift by simplifying how users interact with Tellius. Multi-Business View Vizpads will empower business users to analyze insights across disconnected and disparate data models to unlock game-changing holistic decision-making,” said Hardik Chheda, Chief Product Officer at Tellius. “We will continue to invest in the entire user journey on our platform - with a core focus on user onboarding, supercharging our ad-hoc analysis capabilities, and adding robust enterprise capabilities.” About Tellius Tellius is an AI-driven decision intelligence platform that enables anyone to get faster insights from their data. The company helps organizations across industries, including financial services, pharmaceutical and life sciences, retail, healthcare, and high technology, accelerate their journey from data to decisions by augmenting human expertise and curiosity with intelligent automation. The company’s platform combines AI- and ML-driven automation with a search interface for ad hoc exploration, allowing users to ask questions of their business data, analyze billions of records in seconds, and gain comprehensive, automated insights in a single platform. Founded in 2016, Tellius is backed by Baird Capital, Sands Capital Ventures, Grotech Ventures, and Veraz Investments.
