SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- 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 ranges.
"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."
