Let’s breakdown SQL from the beginning. A database is a systematic collection of information which organizes data to make it more manageable. SQL stands for Structured Query Language, and is the standard language for dealing with relational databases. You can use SQL to add, search, update, maintain or delete records in your database. An SQL Editor is mostly used by IT specialists or business intelligence experts to edit and execute required queries from databases for analysis purposes.
Now that we know what SQL is, how is datapine different from the other editors out there? datapine is made for both IT experts who want to write their own code using our advanced Query Box, and for the business employees out there who have absolutely no experience. There are tons of software and services who market their product as an easy SQL editor, but the reality is that most of them still require comprehensive technical knowledge. Even with these “easy-to-use” programs, most managers and analysts can’t run queries by themselves, and often have to resort to getting assistance from the already overburdened IT staff. It has been widely reported that 10% of the IT department resources are spent on database querying and data analysis needs alone. These tools place extra burdens on IT both in terms of time and cost.
At datapine we know this problem all too well. In fact, our founders were business guys who created this product so that they could be in charge of their own data destinies. Our vision was to enable managers and decision makers around the world to independently generate actionable insights from data to manage their businesses. In addition to our KPI reporting, our software includes one of the best data visualisation tools available, so you can create reports that display the data in a visually compelling way that every person can understand. These data visualisations can be shared instantly through our automated reports.

Our product is a SaaS BI tool, which means you can access it any time and from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. Advantages of datapine go beyond basic SQL editing to cover the multidimensional needs of data analysis and reporting. While the concept of SQL might sound daunting to our business folks out there, you can rest assured that when it comes to datapine no manuals or prior knowledge is needed. Our web based tool offers its users the following features:
No need to install software – datapine’s online SQL editor does not actually need to be installed. Instead, it runs in a browser and is always accessible as long as you have access to the internet.
Use it from anywhere at any time – You can access your visualised data, including stunning online dashboards, from any of your devices including smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop by simply signing into your online datapine account.
Set up and running in minutes – Whereas other online SQL editors can take hours or even days to integrate, datapine will be up and running in less than 10 minutes.
Intuitive drag-and-drop interface – datapine is very intuitive to use. All you need to do is drag and drop the desired fields into a chart or table and you will see instant results.
Automatic SQL code generation – As you use the drag-and-drop interface, an optimized SQL code is automatically generated and executed. This enables complete independence from your IT department and saves significant IT resources.
Advanced SQL Query Box - While our Drag & Drop interface meets the demands of almost all our customers, this advanced feature was created for SQL experts in order to provide them higher flexibility when it comes to building a query. It enables you to enter code manually, perform cross-database queries on-the-fly, modify the resulting data series and instantly visualise the results.
Easy to share – If you perform queries, you can share the results automatically to selected recipients using our dynamic and interactive dashboards.
Dashboards in real-time - datapine’s dashboard software enables you to request and gain insights instantly; in real time.
Comprehensive support - datapine supports all common types of relational databases and it makes no difference whether you use MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS SQL, Oracle, MariaDB or Amazon Relational Database Service.
Data Warehousing - You have the option to connect to datapine remotely or clone your data to our secure data warehouse in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, which unburdens your own server and speeds up the whole query process.
datapine’s web based solution is brilliant because it works beautifully with or without SQL knowledge. For our business guys, those who focus on analysing KPIs rather than coding, we offer our intuitive drag and drop interface. You build queries simply by selecting the data you want and dragging it to the axis where you would like the data to be displayed. This tool is more than enough for you to pull out all the insights you will ever need. There is no need to learn all of the SQL Language elements like: Clauses, Expressions, Predicates, Queries, Statements.
For our data wizards out there, nothing is dumbed down. If you know SQL well enough, you can manually type a query into the Query Box, or you can copy and paste saved queries in the Query Box. You can run the query against multiple data sources or one specific data source, change axes, and rename fields with our advanced options.
