Chartio includes a set of pre-built connections to data sources like Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery and Snowflake, while also enabling direct access to CSVs and Google Sheets.
Atlassian will integrate Chartio’s data visualization functionality into the Jira product family of work management software, which are “used by teams in areas such as software development to coordinate their activities” according to Silicon Angle. Atlassian also foreshadowed that it may integrate these capabilities into other tools in the future.
