About Periscope Data
Periscope is a cloud-based business intelligence platform that helps companies with data visualization and queries. The platform securely queries your databases over an SSL JDBC connection. Optionally use an SSH Tunnel for extra security. No required ETLs, no uploads, no event pings. Get full access to historical data immediately. For more performance and cross-database joins, you can optionally enable the Periscope Cache, a high-performance cloud data store.
You’ll write the same SQL you run on your databases, and have access to all the tables and views in your databases. Periscope runs these SQL queries against your database or the Periscope Cache, and periodically refresh the results. Business users can use pivot tables, drill downs and custom filters for powerful analysis without needing to know SQL.
You can visualize any query’s results with integrated charting. Pick your favorite graph, table, map, or scatter plot, and customize to get presentable insights. When you find a chart you like, save it to a dashboard and your team will instantly have access to your results.
With unlimited users, you can invite your entire team and company into Periscope. All results are instantly and automatically shared to everyone with permission. You can schedule email reports and recipients will wake up to fresh data in their inbox and share secure links to interactive dashboards. You can also embed Periscope charts and dashboards directly in your website.
