What is RAW?

RAW is a platform to enable fast and easy access, integration, delivery and sharing of data services as APIs. This includes:

  1. Query multiple data sources in real-time including files, data lakes, databases and APIs;
  2. Integrate and transform data in real-time;
  3. Deliver and manage the data product output as APIs;
  4. Share access to the APIs with any number of users or applications.

RAW's use cases cover the entire data chain from acquisition, transformation as well as sharing.

RAW main features are:

  • Runs in the Cloud in a scalable infrastructure that is fully managed for you.
  • Uses a low-code data-oriented scripting language called Snapi that is easy to get started and powerful enough for the most complex data integration scenarios.
  • Built for "developers first", with best-in-class development experience on the browser and through a VS Code extension.
  • Is DataOps-ready and "automation friendly", including Git integration and a built-in CI/CD infrastructure for testing and hosting data APIs.
