  • The low-code data platform that unlocks the return on your investments in innovation
  • From data silos to data mastery with easy & low-code to deliver change

  • Self-documenting data transformations – transparent and visible to all;

  • Scalable, low-code workflow to build applications

    • Workflow offers a fast, agile and transparent means to build applications, enabling close collaboration between Product, BA and development teams.
    • Our low-code workflow engine is unique in being 100% distributed & linearly scalable. That means no limits to the speed or scope of what you can run. And it comes with a visual designer that makes it super easy to use.

    • Our low-code reporting engine is designed for the complex and computationally demanding requirements of Financial Services.
