Data mesh


Companies today face many obstacles to democratizing data. And one of Harbr’s customers, a large media and publishing company, is no exception. Its business users require insights to make data-driven decisions, while its data analysts are often bogged down with requests. Getting the most out of tools like Superset and Tableau is complex and requires technical expertise, leaving many business users out in the cold. The lack of self-service analytics tools slows down decision-making across the organization.

The solution:

Harbr worked with this customer to bridge this gap with its user-friendly, self-service analytics platform. With Harbr, the customer can now provide on-demand analytics tools directly to users at all levels. This eliminates the need for IT intervention and empowers business users to explore data independently, generating valuable insights on their own terms.
