File a new issue


GitLab can build meaningful enterprise value with new products that win the hearts and minds of the next generation of collaborative knowledge workers. One growing group of professionals tasked with leveraging company’s data to improve their products, services and internal processes. Today, these people have job titles ranging from software developer roles like “data engineer” and “machine learning engineer” to semi-technical roles like “___ analyst” and “FP&A”.


Meltano has entered a crowded space late and needs to find points of differentiation to win the attention of potential users who are overwhelmed by the range of tools choices in this space. While there are many products solving specific problems in the “big data/analytics” space, there is not a clear winner when it comes to offerings that stitch together the entire end-to-end process.


Integrate the best-in-class open source software to provide a single end-to-end solution for extracting data out of various sources (SaaS tools, internal databases, etc.), transforming them in human-usable data, performing analysis, and automating the process to make data refreshing and dashboard updating repeatable without being manual.



We believe in building in public, and you can follow along with our progress:
