The need for relational data solving has existed since the dawn of spreadsheets, but it’s technical ability that creates a big user divide. How well your team manages data dictates how efficiently the business can capitalize on the power of organizing data and moving data. This pinnacle of complex data management is a database. However, despite decades of innovation, database manipulation has remained in the hands of technical power users until now. 

Osmos is proud to announce Datasets, a significant step forward in no-code data ingestion technology. Built for everyone, not just engineers, it places the power of database organization in the hands of a specific user who hasn’t had access to it before. For the first time, frontline teams can work on the same data as API users.

This new feature adds valuable data transformation tools to Osmos’s comprehensive solution, enabling the teams that receive customer, vendor, and partner data to accurately align relational data sets without requiring assistance from developers or engineers.

The first mile of data ingestion remains a messy problem for almost every organization. Businesses receive data from an overwhelming number of sources in a variety of formats in increasing volume. For example, ingesting insurance data usually involves bringing together insured customer information, plans, beneficiaries, claims etc., related sets of data that only make sense when they all fit together and can reference each other accurately. 

Ingesting that data is painful at every step. Osmos Datasets enables frontline teams to join first mile data together, validate the relationships, and ingest the data into operational systems with a full audit and data lineage log.

Organizations have tried to use spreadsheets to align relational data. But these tools don’t really allow validations against business rules. They don’t solve the first mile of data problem. Alternatively, popular data ingestion tools place heavy demands on engineering and development teams to provide support where those solutions fall short. 

With no single system of record on offer and widespread data incompatibility slowing business-critical workflows, organizations across industries have struggled to efficiently ingest, validate and track the external data they receive.

Osmos is empowering frontline teams to engage in complex data ingestion tasks, allowing them to pull together disparate files and varying data sources to form a coherent, related whole. Going beyond repeated one-time efforts, after the first set of data, Osmos automates the ongoing receipt, cleanup, validation, and ingestion of this relational data with zero extra effort or code. Now non-technical teams can easily automate the transformation of data from a designated start point to a destination schema with easy, no-code workflows. 

Accelerate business with AI-driven data ingestion

We’ve known that a missing piece for first mile data is that businesses haven’t had access to a clear system of record. Today we are solving that problem. They needed a single place where multiple teams within the organization could ingest, map, transform, and validate the external data they receive. Osmos Datasets is now that place.

Customer-facing teams no longer need to rely on engineers and developers to keep their data moving. We’ve virtually eliminated the complicated workflows and legacy processes that hinder access to the clean, usable data your teams need. Osmos is now the system of record for the customer, vendor, and partner data business users receive. Implementation and operations specialists can track where it came from, who cleaned it, how they did it, and when they did it… every detail of the data’s lineage. They can track the relationships with joins, lookups, and aggregations all without submitting a single support ticket to engineering or dev teams. At the other end, developers can pick up the clean data with a powerful API that gives them full programmatic access to the same information.

Datasets dramatically accelerates time to value, enabling in-depth transformation, audit-ability, data lineage, and validation in a single no-code data transformation engine. This is big news for businesses that struggle with data quality. This single advancement opens the doors to new possibilities in data ingestion, giving organizations the power to quickly and efficiently leverage the data they receive.
