Data Streaming is a new way of passing and sharing data between enterprise applications. It is simple and non-technical, just like streaming movies on Netflix and music on Spotify.
eyko Data Streaming is different from other data integration or data synchronization products because it focuses on blending data, enriching it, and then streaming the results to other applications. This process adds value to data the right way--through the data supply chain. The results are streamed directly to other applications intelligently by understanding the capabilities and limitations of the destination application.
Data Streaming is an efficient way to deliver blended data to other enterprise applications. But loading clean data becomes a much more significant challenge when you pull data from CRM, HCM, and other parts of ERP. Being able to shape and clean the data stream and deliver the data in exactly the right format to other applications becomes extremely valuable.
When it comes to data, the more you use it, the better. This is where data streaming comes in, as it offers a way to use the same data in multiple applications, delivering consistency inside and outside the organization. Data streaming makes it easier for people to work in the applications they love, and drives collective decision-making. For example, when it comes to business planning, shaping data streams to deliver data in precisely the correct format for the planning application improves the quality of the forecasting results and enables better automation. With more people looking to use their planning application regularly to deliver monthly management reporting, the ability to "Set and Forget" the flow of data into planning applications becomes incredibly powerful.
A shared dataset is effective. For businesses, it can mean the difference between disparate applications that don't talk to each other and a single application that can deliver consistent data streams to multiple business applications. In the past, this was often done through a data warehouse. But warehouses are expensive and time-consuming to build and maintain. And they often require specialized skills to use. eyko makes it easy to create a shared dataset for consumption in services like Excel, Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, and Qlik. Some services work differently, but the basic idea is the same. You create a data stream with eyko and connect to it in the cloud. Other users can access the stream through a web browser or a dedicated application. Because the eyko stream is cloud-based, it means that the dataset is always up to date, and it can be accessed by any user, anywhere, with an internet connection.
When it comes to data, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. For some companies, data is a critical business asset that needs to be tightly controlled and shared only with authorized partners. For others, data is more like a business utility, something that needs to be shared more broadly with trading partners and other people outside the organization. For companies that need to control data tightly, data streaming offers an effortless and efficient way to share data with authorized partners. This is as simple as granting somebody access to a data stream so they can access it within their environment while retaining central control over the stream. You can control who has access to the stream, how often it's refreshed, and how long people can access it. This is a much safer and more efficient way to share sensitive data like sales projections with suppliers than sending them spreadsheets via email. Who knows where those spreadsheets end up. With data streaming, you can be sure that the data is only accessed by authorized partners and that it's always up-to-date. If you're looking for a more efficient way to share data with your trading partners, data streaming is the answer.
