Zoomdata At A Glance

Good: Zoomdata provides speed-of-thought analytics on billions of rows of data. Additionally, the Data DVR tool allows robust real-time data streaming with digital video recorder (DVR) functionality like pause, rewind and replay.
Bad: Zoomdata's BI platform doesn't include predictive or profit analysis tools.
Bottom Line: Zoomdata simplifies data exploration, analysis and visualization on big, streaming and traditional data sources. The platform can be embedded into other applications or used as a stand-alone solution.

Product Overview

Zoomdata is a business intelligence (BI) tool that visualizes data to make exploration and analysis of big, streaming and complex data simple for the everyday user.

The platform is built to be embedded and extended, meaning Zoomdata can seamlessly integrate with other applications through white labeling or embedding. Zoomdata can be used as a stand-alone, on-premise solution as well.

Built with common web technologies, such as HTML5, Javascript and WebSockets, Zoomdata’s interface can be customized to meet an organization’s needs by many types of developers. Zoomdata can also connect both on-premise and cloud data through data source connectors that leverage native application program interfaces (APIs), allowing companies to have a 360-degree view of key performance indicators (KPIs).

Some of Zoomdata’s benefits include:

  • Instant visual analytics
  • Connectability to all modern data sources
  • Real-time streaming data analysis
  • Simple, intuitive and responsive user interface



Zoomdata is built to help users analyze data visually and efficiently. Listed below are four key features that make this possible:

Data exploration – Interactive visualizations, customizable dashboards and self-service analytics give decision makers the ability to ask questions, explore data and discover insights quickly. The intuitive interface is designed to allow users with all levels of technical skill to navigate the platform with little to no training.

Data sharpening – Zoomdata’s data sharpening abilities turn large amounts of data into comprehensive visualizations within seconds. This process is similar to how a large image file may display in a browser, first appearing blurry until the image fully loads and is sharpened. Zoomdata’s data sharpening process allows users to interact with data as the visualizations are rendering.

Data DVR – Zoomdata has unified different techniques for real-time data visualizations and historical data analysis into one feature, called Data DVR. This tool works similarly to streaming video in that you can pause, rewind and replay real-time data streams instead of just monitoring them.

Multi-source analysis – Combine and blend disparate data sources to appear as one with Zoomdata Fusion. The tool works without having to move data to a common data store before “fusing,” and it automatically determines when and how to access data sources to produce the best visualization possible. Users can access these “fused” data sources in dashboards and embedded applications.

Target Market

Zoomdata focuses primarily on two markets:

  1. Software and technology companies looking to embed visualization and analytics into their current applications.
  2. Enterprises in any industry looking for stand-alone visualization and analytics on modern data platforms such as Hadoop, NoSQL and search.
