Consistent, collaborative data

Define a consistent and secure view of data and business metrics that can be leveraged by any downstream application.

Build a simpler data model, and eliminate the need to export data into Tableau extracts/Power BI imports, cubes, and other optimized data structures.

Curate, analyze, and share datasets in a self-service manner. Work with the most logical view of data, without needing to know about pre-optimized, pre-aggregated physical tables.

Simplified Architecture

A better experience
for all data practitioners


  • Simpler data model

    Let your end users work with the logical view of data, without needing to navigate through complex aggregate tables or materialized views.

  • Centralized metrics layer

    Define standardized business metrics that can be leveraged by any downstream application.

  • Built-in governance and lineage

    Add context and tags to datasets for teammates to leverage, and trace what datasets comprise each analysis through a built-in lineage graph. Enable users to explore and develop datasets without making data copies, identify your most frequently-queried datasets, and surface only your most valuable data assets for public consumption.


  • Self-service experience

    Consume and collaborate with data on your own terms. Leverage your organization’s production-ready datasets for your analyses, and safely experiment without creating and managing data copies.

  • Better insights with fresher data

    Don’t build reports on stale data. Deliver reliable, consistent insights based on fresher, more complete data as it lives in the data lake.

  • Transparent performance

    No more worrying about BI extracts or physically optimized tables. Work directly with your logical data model, and Sonar transparently optimizes and accelerates queries to ensure sub-second responsiveness for all workloads.

Deliver insights.

End-to-end data security

Keep your data and data processing in your cloud account, where data is encrypted at rest and in transit. Manage risk with SOC 2 compliance, and integrate with existing platform security tools including Azure Active Directory, Okta, Ranger, Privacera, and Okera.

Centralized governance

Define a single, governed view of data, with centralized access policies over your data that can be reused by any downstream applications. Safeguard your data further with fine-grained database-style permissions using ANSI SQL.
