GRAX, Inc., a SaaS data platform vendor, released History Stream, a DataOps solution designed to reduce the complexity, time, and cost required to pipe SaaS app data to business analytics and operations tools. History Stream enables streaming of native SaaS app data stored in an AWS or Azure cloud data lake into industry-standard tools.
In a world where one in three enterprise mission-critical applications is cloud-based, business users are eager to leverage that history for other operational and analytics purposes. However, accessing SaaS application data is a mostly manual endeavor, requiring highly skilled IT teams to dedicate significant time and resources for extracting, transforming, and loading (ETL) data, and for creating and maintaining APIs for each downstream consumption tool.
GRAX builds the bridge that businesses need to access and use historical SaaS app data by making it an integrated part of their data fabric. The product:
- 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 of 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 utilize the cloud of their choice, GRAX helps ensure 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 percent of enterprises and 83 percent of the Fortune 500.
