JUST Capital and GoodData Announce Partnership to Create a Big Data Platform that Supports Corporate Engagement and Their Investor Related Products
GoodData powers JUST Capital’s insights platform to measure JUSTness of companies
San Francisco - December 7, 2016 – JUST Capital partners with GoodData® to create the foundation and single source of truth to identify JUST companies. With multiple disparate data sources and the need to manage complex data transformation, JUST Capital chose GoodData over other data and analytics platforms due to its flexibility, robust platform and expertise in building data products.
A major requirement for JUST Capital was flexibility in changing how data is extracted, transformed and loaded (ETL). GoodData’s powerful ETL and platform capabilities allow JUST Capital the ability to easily adjust and add reporting fields as well as change complex transformations as needed.
“After looking at several other platforms, it became obvious that GoodData’s powerful back end capabilities, in combination with user ease in creating and orchestrating ETL processes was the solution that would help launch JUST Capital,” shares Sean Calvillo, who leads finance, operations and technology at JUST Capital. “We are the most authoritative source in showing how corporations rank on the values people in the U.S. care about, so we had to partner with a vendor that was beyond repute.”
Additionally, the GoodData services product team was instrumental in helping conceptualize and define the KPIs required to prove to the public that the companies listed in the JUST rankings are relevant and accurate. With their added expertise, the two companies were able to partner to determine the insights needed to not only measure, but more importantly, improve corporate JUSTness.
“It was rewarding to work with JUST Capital in defining the technical and business requirements to make their vision a reality,” says Sumeet Howe, director of data products & strategy at GoodData. “This is where our team really shines; by taking on the sometimes overwhelming role of expert in defining and building out those client requirements.”
