Frequently asked questions

What data sources does Explo support?

Explo currently supports the following data sources:

  • PostgreSQL

  • MySQL

  • BigQuery

  • Redshift

  • Snowflake

  • Rockset

We are constantly building out support for more data sources, so if you are using a database not listed about, please feel free to reach out to [email protected].

If your data is stored in a 3rd party application such as Shopify, Stripe, Salesforce, etc., we partner with ETL providers and would be glad to help load your data into a database or warehouse.

For clients using MongoDB, Aurora, or other no-sql DBs, you can leverage a tool such as Rockset or load your data into a SQL DB. Please reach out to our team and we'd be glad to walk you through that process.

Does Explo store any of our data?

Explo doesn't store any of our customer's data. We query your database or warehouse each time the dashboard is loaded.

How is Explo different from other BI tools?

Explo is focused specifically on embedded analytics. It's designed so that you can connect your data, and embed a dashboard for your customers in a single day.

We are a fully white-labeled product that fits perfectly into your existing application, and we handle all the permissioning so your customers only see their own data.

Can we use Explo for internal analytics?

Explo is built for embedded, customer-facing analytics first, you can however use our platform to build out dashboards to view and share internally as well.
