From Our Customers
"What I just did in an hour… would have taken me weeks. This is really cool. I don’t need to worry about data coming through the pipeline anymore. New data will show up and get pushed where it needs to go."
Francis ChanDirector of Engineering, DivX
"Ascend's declarative engine is a game-changer for our team's productivity and its flex-code approach strikes the right balance, offering the flexibility we need—ranging from our simple SQL transforms to our most complex recursive PySpark transforms."
Remi PaulinData Architect, PrestaShop
"The Ascend Platform is a phenomenal application for data engineering in companies like Be Power, which benefits from an end-to-end platform like Ascend instead of investing in custom open source solutions that take massive amounts of time and effort to build and operate. I’ve searched for something like Ascend for a long time.”
Paolo EspostoChief Data Officer, Be Power
"We no longer look at individual data sources to pull into Ascend, we look at our entire enterprise—customer-facing and internal—and decide how to pull that into Ascend and then feed it into other systems for visualizations. Ascend is the gateway that processes all our data.”
Ariscielle NovicioSVP & Head of Technology, New York Post
