Our team can help provide materials to help with any internal security / IT approval required.
2. Saves Analysts Effort and Is Less Error-Prone
You can reuse database views containing business logic and data transformation logic so you don’t have to waste time re-writing scripts. Connecting to the data source of truth also reduces the risk of data integrity issues.
Additionally, with automated refreshes, you save time in manual reconciliations and uploads. Where frequent refreshes are required, this can equate to a huge time saver.
3. It’s the most secure way of sharing information
Database connections reduce the number of flat files circulating in your organization. This reduces the risk of colleagues sharing sensitive information via email, taking it offsite, or similar security breaches.
We maintain the highest levels of data security regardless of transfer method.
4. Provides the best result for the business
A database connection with automated refreshes ensures that business stakeholders always have the most up-to-date information - speeding up the exploration and consumption of additional data for use cases. This helps embed Auto Insights in workflows and ensures you get the most ROI.
