Astrato by the numbers: our 2022 product story told through data
At Astrato Analytics, our goal is to simplify Business Intelligence for the modern data team. We want to help people access actionable insights and create powerful visualizations from their business data, no matter what prior skill or experience they have with data analytics. In this blog, we explore Astrato’s 2022 product story. Exploring some of our most exciting contributions to data analytics in 2022 – including an overview of Astrato’s brand-new features and services, and the new capabilities users have within our cloud analytics platform.
24 new product releases
At Astrato we prioritize innovation and forward-thinking, and this ethos is reflected in the upgrades and improvements we continuously make to our software.
Since January, we have brought you 24 major product releases that add real business value to our solution. This includes significant improvements across the board – from cutting-edge engine updates (see: Astrato’s New Analytics Engine Enables a Self-Service, User-Friendly Experience) to sleek tweaks to the user journey and visual design. These new additions give your team new capabilities and better real-time insights into your business data.
And that’s just the recent updates – throughout the year, our team has worked hard to bring you exactly what you need from Astrato, and more! Other personal highlights include Astrato’s data source expansion, enabling support for PostgreSQL, BigQuery and Dremio (in addition to SnowFlake and Google Sheets).
Astrato also now offers passthrough authentication for both Snowflake and Google BigQuery to ensure that users will only see what they need to. Needless to say, it’s been an ambitious year of product releases!
