Google Data Studio

Introduced by Google in 2016, Google Data Studio is a powerful tool for creating interactive dashboards and engaging0 reports. These reports and dashboards interact with the underlying data using different data source connectors. Google Data Studio provides 18+ data connectors for popular data sources such as Bigquery, Google Cloud Storage, MySQL, Google Ads, etc. However, for any other data source, a user has to depend on different partner data connectors individually.

DataChannel & Google Data Studio

Manual ETL and reporting are time-consuming, inefficient, erroneous, and a regular burden on human resources. DataChannel offers 100+ pre-built connectors for data aggregation and replication, in conjunction with a Google Data Studio connector to enable automated regular retrieval of pre-defined datasets in a user-determined data warehouse, which can then be directly used for reporting or dashboards in the Google Data Studio. DataChannel consolidates data that is fragmented, incomplete, in multiple formats, siloed, and has poor inter-linkages into a single source of truth (user-determined data warehouse) which can then assist in setting priorities, evaluating performance, and making decisions.
