QuotaPath Implements an All-in-One Data Stack and Starts Leveraging Data Across the Organization
The Start-Up's Guide to a Modern Data Stack
The Right Time to Build a Data Stack
Data drives business success. It can serve as a roadmap that shows you what you’re doing right and where you need to correct the course. But you can only use the data you have — and trust. If you can’t source or organize key metrics, you’re working in the dark. Mozart Data gets that. We know that you want to see all your data, but you don’t have the time or knowledge to organize it — but the great news is that we do!
Our ETL automation tools are designed to take all the stress out of data organization, so you can concentrate on analyzing metrics and growing your organization. What is ETL automation, though? ETL refers to a three-step process:
When you work with Mozart Data, you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to get business data into a meaningful format. There’s no need to build your own data stack, or set of tools that you can use to gather, translate, and store data. Instead, you can focus on analyzing the data you have using your current BI tools – our ETL automation solutions integrate with all major systems. We also offer an in-house BI tool for clients who need an all-in-one solution.
ETL automation tools allow you to leverage all the advantages of data analysis without all the heavy lifting, with a truly automated data pipeline. You won’t have to worry about a myriad of API updates or waste time trying to troubleshoot broken integrations. You’ll be able to trust your data too. Mozart’s proprietary ETL automation testing tools do as much work for you as possible, so that you can enjoy truly maintenance-free data integration.
You know that data is important, but you might still wonder, “why do I want to automate ETL?” Maybe you’ve already created a process to pull data into your organization’s business intelligence tool. Or maybe you haven’t been able to move data effectively, but you’re still not sure that investing in pipeline automation will provide a good return.
We understand your concerns. Investing in data gathering is a big leap for many organizations. Mozart Data is designed to support your organization. Our ETL automation systems can be tailored to your organization’s needs. With correctly stored and organized metrics, you can complete impactful data analysis whenever you need to — especially if you need to prioritize analysis that requires data from multiple sources, as most organizations do. Your organization won’t face struggles to organize and store data again.
These pipeline automation tools are also essential if you plan to use machine learning (ML) or artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in your workplace. Both rely on accurate data gathering in order to work effectively. Relying on humans to pull that data and transfer it to ML and AI systems is unrealistic. Setting up your data pipeline before integrating such technologies can bolster success.
Automating your data pipeline is also an effective way to get data to more people in your organization. Businesses without data automation often rely on a single employee or department to complete data analysis and report to organization leaders. With ETL automation in place, data and marketing professionals can easily share digestible reports with employees across your organization.
When you think of AI-augmented analytics and data pipeline tools, you might worry that these technologies are replacing human workers. Mozart Data knows that human workers are important. Our ETL tools aren’t designed to replace data analysts at your organization, they’re designed to empower them, while giving organizations the flexibility to build the right team for their needs.
The value of analysts, marketing professionals, operators, product developers, and other employees at your organization who deal with raw data doesn’t lie in their ability to do the busywork of moving it from one place to another. It lies in their ability to analyze that data and identify opportunities for improvement. When you automate your ETL/data pipeline, you’re simply giving those employees — or yourself — more time to do what matters.
Think about how much time you and other employees in your organization spend managing and gathering data. Is it more than a few minutes a day? If you aren’t using ETL tools, the answer is probably yes. Manually collecting and crunching data is incredibly time consuming. It can also be tedious work. There’s no reason to waste the talents of your staff on collecting data when you can automate that work instead.
Mozart Data makes manual data management obsolete. You won’t have to worry about managing a data stack or trying to wrangle info from dozens of different places. There’s no need to stress over getting info into your database. Everything is done for you. Mozart partners with best-in-class platforms such as Fivetran and Snowflake to ensure accuracy and accountability. ETL tools pull information from various data sources, improve overall data observability, support data integrations with ML and AI systems, and provide data alerts according to your parameters.
ETL systems are, first and foremost, tools to retrieve data. Your organization likely has data points coming from multiple sources. Everything from sales leads to marketing data to warehousing and employee performance data are stored in different places, often in different formats.
You know what data you need, and you know where it should be – but actually finding it is a lot like going on a treasure hunt. You have to dig through some dirt to get to what you’re looking for. Not only is it time consuming, it’s frustrating too. Mozart Data can make all of that stress vanish with the click of a button.
Our ETL tools collect all of the data that you want and put it in one place. No one at your organization has to manually pull it. There’s no need to worry about integration issues with your BI tools. Data shows up where it should, when it should. With data sync, you can automate these tasks so your system collects info on a predetermined schedule.
Has your organization ever collected data only to wonder, “now what?” By its nature, digital data is inherently portable. You can take it from one platform and put it on another. But it’s not always as easy as it sounds. Different tools format data differently. A classic example is dates: if your CRM is recording dates in mm/dd/yyyy but your product database is recording events in mm/dd/yy, you may have a hard time maintaining data reliability when you try to combine that data for analysis.
With an automated data pipeline, you can identify the steps needed to ensure your data is clean and reliable and program those conversions (a form of data transformation) into the process, so you never have to worry about it. There is simply no reason to rely on a human being to convert an array of data for greater portability when an ETL system can do it for you.
Once your ETL pipeline has pulled, converted, and loaded data into your data warehouse, it’s ready to be analyzed. The organizations we work with all take slightly different approaches to this task. You might have one person at your company who is responsible for crunching raw data and sharing it with key departments. Perhaps several people or departments need access to data. It’s easy with Mozart because you know exactly where your data is going. We provide a visualized data pipeline that looks much like a flow chart, so anyone can understand their data ecosystem, which tables have run and when, where data transformations are running and their dependencies, etc.
Much of the time, once data is clean and reliable it just needs to be pushed to your BI tool, where even non-technical data users can perform analysis and seek insights that will impact their work.
An automated data pipeline can provide for uniform collection and organization of all of your company’s key data. It offers more than just time savings and convenience though. It also offers the reliability of a tested-and-proven automation framework. When you collect and analyze data yourself, you have to design and execute data testing to ensure that your information is accurate.
There’s no need to do that when you automate. Instead, ETL automation testing works by verifying that the data drawn from the source matches the final data loaded to your BI tools. You don’t have to double-check because you can trust the automation process to do the hard work for you. Mozart Data’s ETL systems also perform verification at various middle points between the data source and its destination to ensure integrity.
An ETL automation framework can also support your overall data strategy by cleansing and organizing data. You need organized data in order to be effective. Without organization, it’s not possible to perform data analysis or power machine-learning work streams. No one in your company has time to organize all that data, but that doesn’t need to be a stress point. Mozart Data does it for you.
Of course, ETL automation also supports your business intelligence needs. You might need to prepare monthly reports for company leaders or investors. Maybe you need to access data quickly to fulfill legal or regulatory requirements in your industry. Mozart Data makes it easy to get your data into your BI tools without errors or loss. We integrate data for you so that you don’t have to worry about it anymore.
