Their product offers data preparation (ETL), OLAP, visualization and collaboration in one single interface, making it an end to end stack for data analysis.
Ever since big data infrastructure became mature, mainly driven by open source technologies, the focus has shifted to data analytics and machine learning. From offering superior customer experience to gaining critical business insights from disparate sources to developing product roadmaps, data analytics is becoming the core competency of any modern enterprise. The biggest pain points felt by modern enterprise decision makers were in data analysis, data transformation and data collection. The big expectation from the decision makers is to have a tool that seamlessly breaks down the data silos across disparate set of data sources. One of the biggest asks from business to enterprise decision makers is a self service analytics tools which takes the groundwork out of getting the data ready for analysis.

The platform accelerates the lifecycle from infrastructure operator to business user, by streamlining the flow from data preparation to transformation to visualization.
With Shareinsights 2.0, it is easy to process large volumes of data from multiple sources, whether it is a CSV file or API from a third party service. It is easy to blend data from across multiple functions inside the organization and gain insights beyond what is usually available in legacy analytics tools. They have also included vast library for machine learning algorithms, making it easy for even business users to run machine learning models on top of data and gain critical insights.
The typical customer expectation from a tool like Shareinsights are:
