Announcing 5X Business Intelligence

Powered by Superset
June 14, 2024

We started 5X with the mission to make data simple. Data is one of the most fragmented industries, with over 500 vendors in 10+ categories. The analogy we use is that data vendors are selling car parts. Imagine walking into a Honda dealership, and instead of selling you a Civic, they sold you an engine, and you had to build your own car.

It turns out that 90% of companies don't care about car parts. They want a complete platform (car) that works out of the box. That's exactly what we have created at 5X.

5X is now a full-stack data platform

Until recently, we’ve been able to bring several different categories into a single platform.

  1. 5X ingestion - Powered by Fivetran and Gravity Data.
  2. 5X warehouse - Snowflake, Databricks, BigQuery, and Redshift - we work with all of the 4 major warehouses, but on top of that, you can actually provision a warehouse directly.
  3. 5X modeling & orchestration - Powered by dbt & Dagster - We’ve built an enterprise modeling and orchestration tool that's incredibly easy to use.


With the launch of 5X BI, we now support a complete data suite, including ingestion, warehousing, modeling, orchestration, and BI inside a single platform.

This means that it doesn't matter if you're an executive, leader, product manager, data engineer, analyst, data scientist, or software engineer—you can use a single platform for all of your data and analytics use cases.

Why Superset?

Our goal is to bring together the best data products into a single platform to provide an incredibly easy-to-use experience for our customers. We’ve found Apache Superset to be one of these products in the business intelligence space. Superset’s intuitive drag-and-drop UI makes it easy to build interactive dashboards that business users will love. SQL-savvy analysts can use SQL IDE to run queries. 5X manages deployment, maintenance, & scaling of Superset.

Pricing that makes sense

  • Unlimited users, flat pricing - Unlike other BI tools, 5X doesn’t charge more when you share dashboards and visualizations, incentivizing you to share data across the organization.
  • Data products & embedding  - This includes being able to white label and embed your dashboards across your customer-facing applications to create rich interactive experiences. Again - no hidden fees.

How Cupbop is using 5X BI

Challenge

Cupbop wanted a holistic overview of their business, down to the store level. They needed an interactive dashboard that could help decision-makers unearth insights from vast amounts of operational and customer data.

Solution

5X BI was a perfect fit for Cupbop. Providing a single interface to ingest, model, & visualize data. Business users operated dashboards, while Data engineers built pipelines - all within 5X.

Impact

The Cupbop team now has real-time access to critical business insights & data. This includes executives, marketing, ops, and store-level teams. User-level permissions ensure that users at a branch see data corresponding only to their branch.

5X’s data consultancy wing provided Cupbop with dedicated analysts who worked closely with store-level managers to uncover insights and provide personalized recommendations to optimize the supply chain and improve store revenue.

“5X has helped us transform from a normal business into a data-driven one. The dashboards within 5X are easy to use & have helped us identify insights & double down on activities that boost revenue.”
