Here are some of the technologies we use most frequently.


Snowflake is one of the most popular data warehouse (DWH) services in the world. Its unique architecture enables unparalleled performance maximization, simple operation, and unlimited concurrent processing that conventional DWHs cannot support.
Reason why we use Snowflake
  • Cloud-based SaaS model requires no infrastructure and is easy to deploy.
  • Easy to scale up and down while keeping costs low.
  • Non-engineers can perform analysis, so it is easy for customers to operate the system alone after introduction.
  • No need for data conversion, which reduces management effort.


Fivetran is a SaaS service that automatically builds data pipelines. Setup takes only 5 minutes and requires no maintenance or detailed configuration. Schemas are pre-defined, so no coding is required.
Data can be aggregated into Fivetran using connectors from over 320 services and databases, including Salesforce, Marketo, and Zendesk. Aggregated data is automatically stored in cloud-based data warehouses such as Snowflake, Amazon Redshift, Microsoft Azure, and Google BigQuery.
Why we use Fivetran
  • Data in the DWH is automatically updated, making it maintenance free and dramatically improving analysis results.
  • Over 300 types of connectors are available, so basically any tool can be linked to the DWH.
  • Manual work in case of data errors and inconsistencies is eliminated and automated.
  • Easy to use, so after implementation and support, it can be easily operated by the client alone.


Tableau is a tool for data visualization. With its intuitive UI, it is suitable for quick data visualization and drawing out new insights. It is also used for data visualization in all industries around the world because of its ability to smoothly integrate data with various external tools.
Why we use Tableau
  • High degree of freedom in dashboard expression, making it easy to create dashboards tailored to customer needs
  • Connectivity to more than 100 different data sources, so basically any data source can be linked.
  • Easy to operate, and easy to be operated only by the client after implementation support.
