press release

Solves “the last mile” for non-technical business intelligence and analytics users, guaranteeing data democratization. 

May 15, 2023, Sunnyvale, Calif. – DvSum today announced its self-service analytics product, CADDI, a chat interface for enterprise data, powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4. 

What is CADDI? 

DvSum Conversational Analytics for Data Driven Insights (CADDI) is self-service analytics via AI-powered chat. CADDI lets anyone easily find, understand, and interact with data. Users attain real-time business insights. You get quick, simple answers, and you can ask complex questions, answered with an elegant self-explanatory visualization. 

With CADDI, everyone has the power of self-service analytics by asking questions in natural language to their data. Under the hood, only DvSum provides meaning and structure with its automated data catalog and reliable data with business rules driven data quality. Thus, DvSum serves the non-technical staff as well as technical. By providing easy access to meaningful, reliable data, CADDI empowers data democratization, and thus your data-driven culture. 

Why now? 

The world has witnessed the potential of GPT-4, when it exploded on the scene with ChatGPT, released by OpenAI. Now such power is at your fingertips for your enterprise data. A clear challenge has been how to harness that power for enterprise data analytics. The answer requires a structured metadata layer with which  the AI tech can reliably navigate, as well as reliable and clean data. DvSum delivers all this. 

How is CADDI different from other approaches? 

CADDI is different from both traditional self-service analytics approaches as other ‘natural language’ approaches. 

Self-service analytics has traditionally had a couple main approaches: 

  • Business Intelligence and visualization tools: Traditional BI tools require SQL or some technical skills. CADDI just uses natural language and is powered by the world’s fastest growing AI tech, GPT-4. SQL or other technical skills are not required. CADDI understands how you might ask a question.  
  • Natural language tools: These tools typically require learning a ‘SQL-like’ language and are very limited in what questions can be asked. You don’t have to ask in a constrained way such as “Sort Product Name by Sum of Sales and Date = 4Q22- 1Q23”. Just ask “Which products had the most revenue the past two quarters?” 

CADDI makes it easy to interface with your data, without technical knowledge or any training. Simply “chatting” with data is easier than even a manual drag-and-drop graphical interface.  And CADDI uses the power of GPT-4 which is widely accepted as the most intuitive AI on the market. Additionally, CADDI’s “secret sauce” is the underlying data infrastructure it provides. DvSum’s machine-learning powered data catalog automatically organizes and classifies all enterprise data, whether structured or unstructured. Additionally, DvSum’s built-in data quality guarantees reliable data with automated business rules. Therefore, all data is organized for you and can be trusted thanks to data quality rules monitoring the data. 

Non-invasive, “Day-One” Value 

Importantly, DvSum CADDI requires no training or changes to the existing environment in terms of compliance and security, deployment, or infrastructure changes. The product does not impact existing corporate compliance, governance, or security measures. No training is required for either the users or the product. The product requires no changes or additions to the existing corporate infrastructure. 

How is data security handled? 

  • Industry-accepted best practices and frameworks 

Our security approach focuses on security governance, risk management, and compliance. This includes encryption at rest and in transit, network security and server hardening, administrative access control, system monitoring, logging and alerting, and more. 

  • Single Sign-On 

If you use Single Sign-on for user access (like Azure ADFS, Okta or any SAML supported Provider), you can configure DvSum to use the same Identity Provider. If you do not use SSO, you can let DvSum manage user authentication powered by AWS Cognito. 

  • Your data never leaves your network 

With cloud solutions, you typically have to give your data to vendors and the vendor cloud security becomes a critical requirement. With DvSum, the data scanning happens inside your network and only metadata is sent outside your network to DvSum Cloud. Get the benefit of a SaaS solution without an increased data protection footprint. 

  • Role-based access control (RBAC) 

Allow for the separation of privileges by user role. Built-in Admin, Editor, User roles. Create your own specific roles and user groups to create finer control to your Data Intelligence platform. 

  • Automatic PII data masking and filtering 

DvSum only harvests metadata from your data sources. Even so, DvSum uses PII identification and masking algorithms when scanning data. So you can be sure that any PII information in your data is not extracted in the data catalog. Continue to maintain GDPR, HIPAA, and other data privacy compliances while using DvSum.
