Here you'll see the most frequently asked questions about SlicingDice and its features.
SlicingDice as a product
Because SlicingDice provides optional built-in tools to work through your whole data pipeline, in a serverless platform with a powerful API.
When you decide to use one of our competitors' platform, you'll likely need to hire third-party tools to build all of your company's data solution. This will lead you to waste time and money trying to figure out how to connect all the pieces together.
Currently, we offer Data Loading & Transformation, Data Exploration & Visualization, Data Intelligence and Data Warehouse modules.
We have our own innovative compression technology. It’s common for us to see compression ratios between 1/10 and even 1/30 of the original data size when inserting it on SlicingDice database, ShannonDB.
There's no magic trick about what we do and the logic is pretty straightforward: as we can store our customer's data using just a fraction of its original size, it costs us much less than any other solution, so we can offer much more affordable pricing models.

Data Loading Module
A Loading Job is a connection to a Data Source that makes the mapping of your data from the data source and sends this data to a SlicingDice's database. When you start the loading job is when the data from your data source starts to flow to your SlicingDice's database. Read the Loading Data guides to learn more about Loading Jobs.
The performance depends on the amount of data and the number of different sources but our time-to-insight is measured in minutes. Also, we support streaming of data and concurrent loading jobs.
