Data-driven companies win. Mode provides the tools to build data-driven companies. Data analysts quickly answer business questions using data in a comprehensive, cloud-based toolchain. Business users can understand and explore their company’s data in our world-class visualization product. By serving both analysts and business users, Mode provides the complete solution for data-driven companies.

When you think of Connectivity, think of “Data In”. We focus on the gateway for customer data to get into Mode and all things related to that! We manage several services that help with:

  • Getting customer data from external, customer databases
  • Executing SQL queries to get that data in and pass it to downstream services via JDBC drivers

The future of the Connectivity team is bright! We are working on more diverse ways of getting data into Mode that aren’t limited to JDBC drivers and SQL. Our future goal is to build out an infrastructure to let third parties integrate with Mode directly.
