Introducing the New Era of Data Engineering

Ascend developed the world’s first Autonomous Dataflow Service, where you can build, scale, and operate continuously optimized, Apache Spark-based pipelines, with less code and fewer breakages.

Powered by Ascend’s Dataflow Control Plane, you combine declarative configurations and automation to manage cloud infrastructure, optimize pipelines, and eliminate maintenance across the entire data lifecycle.

Ascend Autonomous
Dataflow Service

With Ascend, you can build fully reliable Spark-based pipelines with 85% less code and zero maintenance burden. We bring together four foundational elements that drive the new standard in data development:

null

Fully Managed, Portable Cloud Service

Deploy and run seamlessly in Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform, with all development fully portable across clouds.
null

Elastic Data Fabric

Auto-scale with precision based on data, code, concurrency, and SLAs for on-demand processing and auto-orchestration to handle any scale.
null

Multi-Language

Build and visualize declarative configurations using modular transforms in SQL and PySpark, with full lineage and dependency management.
null

Dataflow Control Plane

The powerhouse that automates the management of underlying infrastructure, while perpetually operating and optimizing your pipelines in response to inevitable data changes.

Where to Start?

Move to the Cloud

Moving to the cloud is a matter of when, not if. But where do you start? With Ascend’s fully managed, cloud-agnostic design, we make it easy for you to take advantage of the elasticity and flexibility of the cloud immediately. Using Ascend, teams have moved entire workloads to the cloud and even between clouds with Ascend without disruption and everything you build is fully portable across public cloud providers.

Modernize from ETL to Pipelines

There are tons of great tools for handling simple and structured ETL operations. But these start to show their age as you expand into new types of interaction data, with more scale, complexity, and unpredictability. With Ascend, you can leapfrog to the best-of-breed pipeline technologies in just a few weeks, regardless of whether you prefer working in code or SQL.

Optimize the Data Warehouse

Is your data warehouse bursting at the seams? Ascend has helped customers better optimize their downstream analytic systems by taking on the “last mile” ETL, staging, and exploratory workloads. It made their data teams more agile and proactive, downstream analytics more performant, oh and also reduced their bill by 50%.

End-to-End API Integration

Tapping into digital data usually means dealing with APIs, which require a lot of manual code and guesswork to handle the inevitable late arriving data, schema changes, unexpected volume changes – the list goes on. Now, simply connect directly to any API and let the Ascend Service take care of any of the hard stuff. You can trust your data will be in the lake or warehouse, with no surprises.

Operationalize New Data Project

Data stuck in the lake (or worse, across silos) isn’t providing your company much value. Ascend can help you finally tackle that new data project that just keeps getting stalled. We’ve helped data science teams power end-to-end model development 83% faster, analysts fuel analytics and consolidated dashboards over dozens of digital data silos, and data teams completely replace external consultants with self-service pipeline development and a few lines of code.
