Panoply provides out of the box integration with dozens of popular data sources, allowing you to query and analyze your data instantly without requiring thousands of lines of custom code. While Panoply works with many popular storage and database solutions, including Amazon S3, MySQL, and Postgres, Panoply is also programmed to allow uploads of your own data files. Many different types of files and data technologies can be uploaded directly to Panoply, including:
Once the data is uploaded, it is instantly available for analyses and can be combined with all other data sources. Fast and simple, Panoply makes it easier to manage your data without a sizeable data warehousing infrastructure.
With the Shiny (R) open source BI tool from RStudio, users can create their own interactive websites and dashboards. Host your Shiny web applications on your own server or on RStudio’s hosting service. With Shiny, anyone who knows R can design their own web apps without having to learn programming or web development.
The Shiny R package is user friendly, but you still need to do ETL (extract, transfer and load) work to process your data. Adding Panoply takes care of all the ETL for you. Panoply manages that entire process automatically. It seamlessly delivers your latest sorted and cleaned data to your Shiny web apps.
