Real-time data sharing

👉 Learn how to use RAW to share data in real-time from a database, data lake, files or even web services. 👈

  • Sharing data with internal or external teams is difficult to do in a secure manner and with proper governance.
  • Sharing data can yield significant returns: internal teams can quickly build new products or services with the newly-available data; organizations can share data with partners, suppliers or customers for new business opportunities.
  • RAW allows you to share data from a single platform and stay in control of how data is consumed. Development, hosting, invitations to internal or external users, management of API keys, data consistency and cataloguing are all provided out-of-the-box in an easy-to-use all-in-one platform.

How does it work?

To share data in RAW, you start by building REST APIs. These REST APIs are developed using RAW's built-in language called Snapi. Snapi is a low-code scripting language that provides advanced querying capabilities. Snapi allows you to quickly build REST APIs that query data directly at source from databases, data lakes, file stores or even web services. Snapi allows you to transform data in complex ways, which means your REST APIs can even provide a "last mile" real-time transformation step such as filtering out records based on user roles/scopes, or even join data from multiple systems, all in real-time.

As a result, you do not have to build and maintain dedicated data pipelines for data sharing, which in turn means you get to deliver projects faster.

Other Benefits

Since the RAW platform hosts these APIs as a service, you do not have to worry about operations. You also get access to RAW's built-in monitoring tools, as well as RAW's built-in API catalog. As a result, you have a leaner and faster data integration platform with a secure, single access point of data with very little development and operational effort.
