Holistics is designed to help your business users to access data themselves without bothering Data Team.

Data teams use Holistics to define business metrics, datasets and reports for business users. Business users can consume the predefined reports, or build their own reports with simple, visual report builders.

If you believe Data Team’s job should not be about answering adhoc report requests for Business, then Holistics might be a good fit for you!

Self-service BI platform

Before vs After Holistics

Before Holistics After Holistics

Data Team is a bottleneck

Data Team is overwhelmed with ad-hoc queries from business users.

Every slight change to the report format, Business Users cannot change themselves and have to ask Data Team for help.

Self-service Data Access for Business Users

Business Users perform adhoc data exploration without writing SQL or bothering Data Team. Data Team just needs to maintain central business logic layer.

With reduced adhoc data requests for Data Team, they can focus on more complex data analyses.

Repeated Logic Definitions

Multiple different SQL definitions of the same business logic across entire system.

When some field changes, you need to go through all the reports and manually change them one by one.

Business Logic is defined in one place

When some business logic changes, Data Team only needs to update once, and the change will be reflected across all related reports AUTOMATICALLY.

Inconsistent numbers

Different reports might give different values for the same metric.

Business Users confused and stop trusting the data, keep coming back to Data Team to verify.

Reporting that can be trusted

Since metric is defined once, all reports should give the same value for the same metric.

Data Teams Define Business Metrics

Data Teams can define business logic once in Holistics using SQL.
