Data as a Product
Faster Business Outcomes
with Ready to Use Data
Data as a Product means a product that facilitates an end goal through the use of data.
Whether you are working on AI projects or running operations, data products make it easier and faster for business data users to consume and manage data.
When you buy your favorite pair of shoes (a product), you expect to get exactly what you need in terms of color and correct size with zero inconvenience. Data products give you same experience with data. Nexla connects to your data sources – files, databases, APIs, streams etc. and automatically generates data products. Data users can simply discover, create, and even customize these data products before they use them in their favorite tool. Data Analysts can consume their data products in Tableau, while developers can get an API feed to their data products, and business users can get them in a Google Sheet. These Data-as-a-Product entities are also a building block for modern Data Mesh solutions.
Data That is
Ready to Use
Nexla automates time-consuming data engineering tasks such as managing data credentials, integrating data, transforming, and delivering ready to use data.
With the right validations, rules, and alerts, only high quality, trustworthy data shows as a product. Data users simply discover and use the correct data product.
Abstract away the schema, speed, file type and make data interoperable between data workflows. Transform data endlessly to get it in exact shape in which it’s needed.
Work with Data Products, not Raw Data
Data Products in Nexla preserve all the richness of raw data but make it much easier to work with.
Simply provide data credentials to automatically get data products. Data products in Nexla are neatly organized with schema, samples, descriptions, annotations, ratings, and more. Easily find the exact data you need, curate it, enrich it, and share with whoever needs it.
Infused with Continuous Intelligence
The data products are auto-generated by a continuous metadata intelligence engine that analyzes data at record-level. Resulting data characteristics and metadata provide a logical view that abstracts the underlying heterogeneity of data and provides a consistent interface to data regardless of source, format, and velocity.
Nexsets are not a copy of data but a way to look at data organized by schema. Continuous intelligence means you don’t get only a stale, point-in-time view of the schema. Instead, the schema is continuously updated and automatically versioned in Nexla.
Share Data Products with Everyone
Nexla data products have a consistent interface for different stakeholders to work with data and collaborate. This means the same Nexset or a transformed Nexset can be used by teams for data science, business operations, data engineering, data governance and other use cases.
Data Sharing for Teams Everywhere
Nexsets are shareable. This means that much like a Google Doc, multiple users and stake holders can now collaborate on data. Sharing is allowed between individuals, teams, and also across organizations, making data sharing a snap.
