If you are currently using PowerBI, you might face following problems

Not everyone able to get insight using SQL or drag-and-drop

Non-technical users have limited data exploration capability. They have to depend too much on Data Analysts for insights, making analysts team the bottleneck. This creates friction for self-serve analytics across the organisation.

Not a fully Web based tool

with Power BI, your data analysts have to work with Power BI on a Windows machine, then publish on the cloud.

Unable to work with larger data

Power BI does not accept files larger than 250MB and there is a 1GB limit per dataset. As you scale, you will get stuck with Microsoft’s infrastructure, it’s quite cheap in the beginning when your goal is just visualizations but the cost will rise dramatically later when you scale up.

Steep learning curve for Analysts, with proprietary language

For building data models, analysts cannot use SQL. They have to learn a new language.

Limited Realtime data refreshes

Power BI only supports just a few limited data sources for real-time connection. Power BI limits the number of scheduled refreshes per day.

If you face the problems above, then Sprinkle might be a suitable alternative for your organisation.

Sprinkle requires you to have your own data warehouse, however, it provides you with a more flexible and scalable BI platform by centralising the entire data management and de-centralising the data access.

The core technology of Sprinkle is a semantic layer that includes Ingestion, transformation, and data modelling, that runs on top of your own warehouse. This allows data teams to collaborate and work across the entire lifecycle of data, without writing any code. The data modelling layer allows you to create rich OLAP on your data warehouse, enabling non-technical users to do drag-and-drop analysis on their own.

Why customers love us ?

Sprinkle help us run thousands of analyses without any analysts

"Swiggy’s hyperlocal time-critical business model requires quick and accurate insights.Therefore, most business and product teams need to do analyses by themselves. To make this happen, we needed a no-code analysis platform that was feature-rich and easy to use at the same time. Sprinkle has served that purpose very well for us. Today, we have hundreds of business and product users running thousands of analyses every month without the need for any analysts."

Sprinkle helped us reduce the data dependency on engineering team

"The data team has been able to reduce the data dependency on them. Through the self-serve analytics on Sprinkle, the business & product users are able to get the required data & visualisations with ease themselves. Once the models are set up, it is very easy for users to build on new dashboards, which is very helpful in catering to ad-hoc requests."

Building of data pipeline can be done in no time with Sprinkle

"The tasks like building the data pipeline, which could have easily taken up to 2 weeks, can now be achieved with Sprinkle in a day or so. The reporting tasks that could have easily taken 4 to 8 hours can be done through automation on Sprinkle in half an hour, which is a game-changer for sales."
