DataHero Announces HubSpot CRM Integration And Enhanced, Dashboard-Centric User Interface

On Tuesday, DataHero announced an expanded integration with HubSpot which allows HubSpot CRM users to visualize and transform data using DataHero’s cloud-based business intelligence platform. As a result of the integration, DataHero users can integrate their visualizations of HubSpot’s CRM data with HubSpot’s inbound and outbound marketing automation tools. DataHero’s integration with HubSpot CRM builds on a long-standing partnership between the two vendors that now extends DataHero’s cloud-based business intelligence tool to help HubSpot CRM customers more effectively understand the intersection between marketing and sales. In addition to the integration with HubSpot, DataHero releases a new user interface featuring a dashboard-focused presentation layer as illustrated below:

DataHero’s dashboard-centric user interface allows customers to drill-down and transform datasets to obtain actionable business intelligence. In conjunction with its expanded partnership with HubSpot CRM, DataHero’s new user interface continues to assert its prominence in the highly competitive space of cloud-based business intelligence tools amongst the likes of Tableau, Domo and Tibco Jaspersoft. Importantly, DataHero allows customers to integrate and analyze a portfolio of cloud-based tools from sources such as Salesforce, Google Analytics and Dropbox. The platform’s sweet spot hinges on its reporting capabilities in conjunction with its ability to ingest data from a variety of cloud-based data sources. Expect to hear more in the way of strategic partnerships from DataHero in subsequent months that continue to propel its traction in the enterprise, particularly amongst customers that are transitioning their business intelligence processes from manual, Excel-based manipulations to seamless automated data ingestion, analytics and real-time data visualization.


DataHero Finalizes $6.1M In Series A Funding For Its Data Visualization Platform

DataHero today announced the finalization of $6.1M in Series A funding led by existing investor Foundry Group. The funding raise will be used to scale the company’s operations in anticipation of rapid growth and customer demand for its cloud business intelligence solution. As told to Cloud Computing Today in a phone interview with DataHero founder Chris Neumann, DataHero gives organizations the capability to rapidly visualize data in structured and semi-structured form by means of a cloud-based platform that accepts the intake of data in csv, Excel or integrations with select third party data feeds. For example, customers can load one or more Excel files into DataHero’s business intelligence platform to visualize, transform and perform drill-downs on data. The DataHero platform features connectors to a range of third party platforms that include Marketo, HubSpot, Salesforce, Zendesk, Google Analytics and cloud storage platforms such as Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. In comparison to other data visualization platforms, DataHero focuses on non-technical end users that need a streamlined and simplified path toward visualizing the larger significance of data of interest. Today, DataHero also revealed the appointment of serial entrepreneur Ed Miller as CEO. Miller has led a number of tech startups and his appointment underscores both DataHero’s historical growth as well as the urgency of its plans to gear up for the next phase of its evolution. Expect DataHero to continue expanding the roster of platforms with which it integrates and deepening its analytic capabilities as it continues to deliver on its sweet spot of visualizing and presenting data to end users in ways that empower business stakeholders to make more convincing cases for their business decisions using data presented in compelling and palatable forms.
