 Data Analysis & Machine Learning


Powerful but underrated. The desktop version is free! A must-have tool for everyone, ranging from data analysts who have outgrown Excel to data engineers (prep data for your ML models in hours instead of days/weeks/5000 lines of code on Jupyter). They just launched their server edition on AWS marketplace. Give it a spin!


A business analyst focused, self-service data analysis, and workflow tool. Even though it’s a bit pricey, it’s a super easy tool with an intuitive user interface. It works well with Tableau and removes the dependency on IT. A business user can now ‘wrangle’ with data and build data transformation workflows in minutes. 

Data Visualization & BI

Data Warehouse – Stores all your data for fast BI reporting and analytics purposes


Snowflake is a cloud-based data warehouse you can kick start with a credit card. It provides incredible scaling ability at a great value. It also decouples processing power and storage, so you can automatically scale up (larger computing power for large queries) and scale across (increases number of compute-clusters, for more users having smaller queries). Moreover, the storage costs of Snowflake are on par with S3. Say goodbye to your slower and expensive legacy data warehouses.

Data Pipelines & ETL


Matillion is a cloud-native, visual ETL tool. It executes the transformations within cloud data warehouses, taking full advantage of the data warehouse’s parallelism. It also eliminates the need for a separate compute infrastructure.

Stitch & Fivetran:

Powerful Extract and Load tools, you can connect all your SaaS applications and application backend to a cloud data warehouse in minutes.
