Chartio Adds Support for Salesforce, Creating an Interactive Interface to Your Salesforce Data
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 21, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Today Chartio, the company building the best interface to data,
announced the ability for Salesforce customers to directly connect
their data to Chartio. Salesforce users can now explore data from
Salesforce alongside Google Analytics or production databases like
MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle in the same dashboard or chart. Chartio
makes it easy and intuitive to view your Salesforce database,
drill-down into data points of interest, and filter data through date
"We were one of the companies that requested the ability to connect
to Salesforce," said Rimas Silkaitis, product manager at CarWoo.
"Chartio just makes it so easy and intuitive to dive into our data,
that we wanted that capability with Salesforce too."
One of the biggest advantages to using Chartio is the availability of
real-time data. Unlike Salesforce itself, which only provides daily,
weekly or monthly reports, Chartio lets you report on this data at
whatever interval you'd like. Customers connect their databases
directly to Chartio, bypassing the need for data warehousing, to
receive real-time data to produce the most up-to-date charts. Unlike
its competitors, the results you see in your dashboards and charts
are always as fresh as the data in your database.
"One of the keys to managing sales, and other operational processes,
is to monitor and analyze data in as close to real-time as possible.
Being able to match information from external sources, such as
Salesforce.com and Google Analytics, with internal data in near
real-time will provide key competitive advantage for any
organization," said John Myers, senior analyst business intelligence
and data warehousing at Enterprise Management Associates, a Boulder,
CO based analysis firm. "Often proprietary options only allow you to
view single sources, such as Google Analytics, or update at less than
near real-time increments, such as Salesforce.com. Chartio's ability
to provide this integrated view across multiple external and internal
data sources in near real-time via a cloud-based infrastructure
provides both operational and cost-based advantages."
Chartio helps the technical and nontechnical alike understand and
explore their databases. In addition to Salesforce, Chartio also
supports Google Analytics, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Amazon
Relational Database System, Rackspace Databases and Heroku.
"Chartio is continuing to add more data sources, features and to hire
more people in order to create a first-class customer experience,"
said Dave Fowler, founder of Chartio. "It is exciting to see Chartio
grow into the product it is today and work closely with our customers
to make it an ideal product for visualizing company data."
