Data as a Service

Any data, anywhere, for anyone

Knowi Data-as-a-Service

Empowers Anyone with Self-Service Analytics

Direct Access

Direct Access to Any Data, Anywhere

Today's enterprise data stacks are a mix of diverse data sources that are constantly evolving. Knowi natively integrates to a wide range of these sources including SQL, NoSQL, APIs, and files, to provide data engineers and data scientists secure access to any data instantly

Dynamic Data

Dynamic Data Blending

With storage optimized for specific data types and use cases, data is rarely sourced from a single database anymore. Knowi allows users to blend data across multiple sources, on the fly, including munging structured and unstructured data.


Securely Curated Datasets

While you want data access to be flexible, it also must be secure and governed to ensure people are accessing the right data. Knowi includes a number of enterprise-level data security features that enable admins to govern access and curate datasets.

Self Service

Self-Service Data Access

With a Data-as-a-Service solution, Data engineers create virtual datasets by querying and blending data from source systems to create the widest possible dataset. These virtual datasets are exposed to the business users, data scientist, or downstream systems via an API. Users can start slicing and dicing the data using their favorite BI or Data Science tools.

Rapidly Create the Widest Possible Datasets

In the past, to create wide datasets meant weeks of work to build schemas, flatten arrays, and move data into a common relational structure. Welcome to the Knowi way. With support for the broadest number of NoSQL and SQL data stores available and other sources like REST-APIs or files, Knowi lets you combine multi-structured data without the need to move or manipulate your raw data regardless of source or structure.

Create Aggregations or Derived New Data on the Fly

It’s hard to create the perfect dataset with the right aggregations and the right calculated fields to meet the needs of multiple users and use cases. Most other BI solutions require you to either use a separate data prep tool and store the aggregations in the database. Knowi’s powerful Cloud9QL, a proprietary SQL-like syntax, enables data engineers to aggregate, manipulate, and calculate new data directly within the Knowi platform eliminating the need for additional data prep tools.
Fine Grained Data

Fine-grained Data Security

You want to provide data access for all but it can’t be a free-for-all. You need to be able to govern access and ensure sensitive data is only exposed to authorized users. Knowi provides multiple levels of data security including role-based access controls at the dashboard, visualization, or field-level.

Share Data Your Way

The benefits of data are realized when it can be shared in a way that meets the needs of everyone. With Knowi, you have multiple options to share data from exposing it via a REST-API to scheduling publication to individuals or groups or ad-hoc download of CSV or Excel formatted files.

Presentation Layer

Optional Presentation Layer

One of the benefits of DaaS solutions is you can visualize the data in your favorite platform but maybe you don’t have one or the one you have isn’t great. No problem, we’ve got you covered. Knowi is a full stack analytics platform that includes over 30+ data visualizations and natural language BI capabilities that sit directly on top of our Data as a Service layer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and answers about search-based analytics on Knowi


A lot of business users have some data literacy but not the deep syntax knowledge required to analyze data themselves. With search-based analytics, your team (or customers if you embed) can explore the data by entering questions and getting back actionable data. This will eliminate the need to go to the data science team every time someone wants to explore the business metrics or statistics. 

In short, yes. And if you are employing a complex use case we recommend it. This usually involves working with the Knowi team of solution engineers to build out custom associations and synonyms for the natural language processing engine that powers your search-based analytics.
