About the Data Transformations:

While SegmentStream platform is really easy to use for our final users — Digital Marketing teams — under the hood there lies a very advanced, high-load, and innovative Data Transformations module.

Data Transformations work on top of Google BigQuery data warehouse where terabytes of data collected each day. By connecting Google BigQuery to SegmentStream’s Data Transformations module, Data analysts are able to easily create & run smart and fully automated data transformation workflows to clean, transform, stitch and update the data, making it fully ready for further analysis.

For example, it helps to transform all the raw data from dozens of different data sources into a single table fully ready for data visualization, machine learning, marketing automation, and other great things, all across 50+ of our enterprise clients with massive datasets.

This is our own development and technology that is based on Kubernetes and Argo (the same stack is used by Tesla, Nvidia, Google, GitHub, and other great companies). We really proud of it and we think that this is one of our most important unique competitive advantages.
