South Portland, ME (May 1, 2018) – DataBlend LLC, a joint venture of Carlson Management Consulting and J2 Interactive, is excited to announce the launch of a major new version of DataBlend, the powerful data integration platform as a service (iPaaS). The cloud-based solution makes it easy for business users to bi-directionally transfer data across mission-critical financial and operational systems. With DataBlend, business users quickly create integrations and benefit from unified data for improved financial performance and insight.

Featuring an intuitive workflow builder, DataBlend automates data transfers and schedules key processes to run at any time. Clients gain more value from their core systems with enhanced reporting and a holistic view of company performance with real-time data.

New features include the following:

  • Single page application design to enhance the user experience
  • Drag and drop Workflow Builder to quickly create end-to-end integrations
  • Workflow drill-down to view and modify integration elements
  • Query Builder allowing users to select fields to query, rename field columns, filter on fields to specify a data set, and preview data in real-time
  • Keyboard shortcuts for power user navigation
  • Pre-built scripts to simplify data import/exports
  • Real-time status updates via notification pane
  • Expanded set of transformations including concatenate, fill or remove blanks, and flip signs
Peter MacIntyre, Director of DataBlend, states, “DataBlend is a very powerful platform that business users can leverage as a central hub for data flows between systems to transform the data in creative ways. In addition to pre-built connections, the opportunities to create new connections are practically endless due to DataBlend’s design and customization abilities. The single page workflow builder makes it easy to build an end-to-end integration that includes data sources and data transformations.”

With DataBlend’s new interface, business users can implement field to field mapping, pivot tables, and additional data transformations with unlimited custom scripting possibilities. The platform saves time and money by providing powerful extract, transform, and load capabilities at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.

MacIntyre reveals what sets DataBlend apart from other integration tools, stating, “DataBlend has solved a lot of unique problems for companies in that it can extract complicated data sets and simplify them for easy data loads. All along, our goal has been to make DataBlend a user-friendly platform that anyone can use to create their own integrations.”

Adam Kozaryn, Vice President of Software, spearheaded the platform’s development. He shares why DataBlend is the integration solution of choice for many organizations:

“With minimal coding or technical expertise, DataBlend can act as the ‘middleman’ to integrate your existing Cloud or on-premise data systems to provide a much higher ROI. You are able to pull data in real-time from Cloud financial solutions such as Adaptive Insights, Sage Intacct, NetSuite, QuickBooks, Bamboo HR, as well as on-premise SQL/MS Access/Oracle, for example, and then join and analyze in a single user interface without having to use multiple reporting tools.”

Additionally, business users get the most out of their implementations with DataBlend’s real-time dashboards and notifications. Specifically, they can view the dashboard for real-time status updates and automate the delivery of email notifications to end users.

Ultimately, DataBlend delivers the big picture of business performance that only unified data across systems can offer.
