Workbox – The Ultimate Solution to Challenges of Cloud Database Users

Davy is the marketing manager of a large consumer electronics company. His company uses a cloud-based database to store the data of its customers. Davy’s team uses the data to carry out various marketing activities. The team uses several third-party tools to perform the activities, as the database solution provides only the facility to store data. The use of different third-party tools results in frequent integration problems, adversely affecting the productivity of the team.

Chris is the IT manager of a multinational insurance company. His organization stores customer transaction details on the cloud. Recently, an attack by cybercriminals resulted in the theft of data pertaining to more than 500 million transactions. The insurance services provider is now facing an investigation by regulatory authorities and it could end up paying several million dollars in fines. Chris is understandably a very worried man.

Harold is the customer service manager of a well-known online retail company. The company runs a call center that handles thousands of customer queries every day. The agents working in the call center are facing issues because they need to access the required information from a cloud database that provides data in columns with incomprehensible field names, which only indicate the type of data they contain. They need to spend a lot of time identifying the data in each column, and this is affecting their ability to resolve customer issues quickly.

Do these stories sound familiar? Many users of cloud-based databases face these issues, which hamper their productivity. What does it take to resolve the problems? How can users of the cloud carry out their operations seamlessly? They need to use Workbox, a robust cloud-based platform that enables users to make the best use of their data in a safe, cost-effective manner.

How Does Workbox Facilitate Safe, Hassle-free Data Operations?

No Programming Skills Needed to Use Workbox

There are several data management systems in the cloud. However, in order to use these systems effectively, people need to have good knowledge of coding. Unfortunately, many business users such as marketing and sales professionals lack programming skills; this prevents them from making good use of the systems.

You need no coding abilities to use Workbox. You can utilize the point-and-click features of Workbox or use your programming skills to create and use databases and APIs with high efficacy to meet your specific requirements.

Workbox Uses Novel Microservices to Provide a Wide Range of Functionalities

One of the key challenges faced by many users of cloud-based databases is the lack of in-built tools that allow them to perform various data operations. This prompts them to go in for various third-party software applications, which can result in integration and data security challenges.

Workbox resolves this problem very effectively. The novel solution for data management leverages a wide variety of microservices to provide a plethora of useful functionality. Check out this interesting post to know more about the microservice-enabled functionality of Workbox.

Complete Security to Your Business Data from Cyber Attacks

A major problem facing the corporate world is ensuring the safety of their business data. Over the last few years, cyber attacks have increased in both numbers and sophistication, resulting in serious concerns being raised over the ability of companies to protect their data.

You can ensure complete security of your data using Workbox. The novel platform is designed to secure your data from a wide range of cyberattacks, including SQL injections. The platform utilizes various data security techniques including OAuth and multi-factor authentication to prevent unauthorized access to your data.

A Capability to Set a Meaningful Context to Business Data

Databases store information in columns; each of these columns contains data of a specific type such as integers, characters and so on. When users try to retrieve the data in the database, they have problems identifying the information stored in each column. This is because the columns are named after the type of data they hold and not based on business context. For example, a column containing telephone numbers is identified as INTEGER and not as TELEPHONE NUMBER, and this could lead to confusion.

Workbox allows you to overcome this problem very easily. The platform enables its users to name columns in databases based on the business context. Staying on with the example of telephone numbers, you can rename the column containing integers to TELEPHONE NUMBER without any hassles.

Data Navigation and Access Is Made Simple

On many occasions, users of databases need to access data from external sources. At times, this can be very cumbersome and frustrating. The users may face issues in accessing, navigating through and retrieving data from these external sources of data.

You can resolve this challenge with very little effort using Workbox’s point-and-click capabilities. All you need to do is click a few buttons to leverage technologies such as REST-JSON, XML and OData, for establishing a connection to the external data source and access the information in it.

Users Can Validate Not Just the Data Type but the Data Itself

Many databases allow users to validate the type of data entered into a field, but not the actual data. For instance, a database will help the user to make sure only integers are entered into an INTEGER type field but don’t provide any option to validate whether the right integers are entered.

This limitation can be overcome using Workbox. The cloud-based data platform allows you not only to validate the type of data but also the data itself. This will go a long way in preventing data entry errors, thereby ensuring very high levels of data accuracy.

As you can see, Workbox helps you perform cloud-based data operations in a secure, seamless manner. Our rich experience working with various companies in diverse sectors and a strong focus on comprehending your data requirements enables us to provide the right solution that creates the best value.
