I’m Ry Walker, CEO. We built the SaaS edition of Astronomer as a low-friction, low-cost way to help you ingest and route user event data. Hope you give us a try. But we’re not stopping there… Because one-size-fits-all solutions from SaaS tools often don’t provide enough flexibility, the SaaS edition of Astronomer is a precursor to our forthcoming open and private cloud editions of the platform, which will help savvy data teams gain full control of their data routing stack without having to pay the full price of going it completely alone. Open/private cloud editions are in alpha testing, ping me if you’d like to kick tires (ry@astronomer.io).

The new UI is the slickest UI in an analytics product ever!

Pros:

Astronomer lets you control and own your analytics data while using tools you already use to query and analyze.

Cons:

There are some learning curves when transferring data between schema-less to schema-ful data stores.

I'm the cofounder of an e-commerce company thinking about how to start warehousing my user data. How is your product different than Segment?

Hi @dylan_kim thanks for question. If you're just starting, and don't have a lot of monthly tracked users (MTU) yet, Segment may be the better option (how's that for brutal honesty!) Our sweet spot is with savvy data teams inside low MTU monetization companies. They have higher costs with analytics tools (due to volume of their user events) mixed with frustration around lack of flexibility that SaaS tools generally provide — to the point they are considering rolling their own data ingestion platform. Also, we have some customers who must ingest _their customer's data_ for their platform to function, which will become more common in the AI/ML era. Segment isn't really designed with that use case in mind. Because we're writing our ingestion recipes in plain ol' Airflow and exposing the scripts and Airflow's interface to you, recipes can be tweaked or even rewritten for any use case.

@dylan_kim You should consider www.customerlabs.co/actionrecorder, easy and fast to set up without writing any code. Pushes the data into Google Bigquery for warehousing purposes.

Fantastic and very knowledgable team that goes to great lengths identifying customers' needs and making sure to support them. The solution is extremely flexible, hence the need to dig a bit deeper what specific use cases to tackle with Astronomer.

Pros:

Easy to get started w/ Clickstream to centralize analytics data, very powerful when adding fully customizable aggregation w/ managed Airflow

Cons:

No built-in dashboards for visualizing insights, funnels, etc. but team is ready to propose proven solutions for this.

Looks awesome. Great tool !
