New in Steep: Cube integration

We have partnered up with the good folks at Cube to bring you a powerful semantic combo. With the new Steep + Cube integration you can now connect Steep to an external semantic layer powered by Cube. Build your semantic layer with code in Cube, and publish your metrics to all your end users in Steep.

Cube

Cube is a powerful stand-alone semantic layer that enables you to build your semantic model in code and deliver it to multiple apps via a set of APIs and integrations. Teams choose Cube to get:

  • Central definitions in code powering multiple apps and embedded analytics
  • Ability to combine metrics from a wide number of data sources – from MongoDB to Clickhouse
  • Code-first data modelling, flexible apis, nice developer tooling

Steep

Steep is the modern BI tool built natively for the semantic layer and metrics. Steep allows you to ship your metrics catalogue to all your end users and empower them to work and collaborate together.

  • The platform comes with a built-in semantic layer where you define metrics using an intuitive UI approach
  • and now you can also connect to an external semantic layer with Cube.

A seamless integration

The integration is designed to be smooth from setup to usage. Here’s how it works:

  • You define metrics using cubes and views in Cube, and connect them to Steep
  • Steep will under the hood switch to using the Cube API for generating and running queries
  • Otherwise, from the end user perspective, everything works exactly the same as with native metrics 👌

Data sources

Hybrid setup works great

Can I have both Steep native metrics and external ones at the same time? Yes you can, the two approaches works really great side-by-side. A hybrid setup can be useful for:

  • Easily migrating metrics from UI-based to code-based
  • Keeping core metrics version-controlled in code, and allowing analysts to iterate on newer metrics with the Steep UI

The semantic stack

At Steep we want the semantic stack to work really well end-to-end, and so instead of creating multiple competing standards we are working toward making the solutions in the space work really well together. No matter how you choose to build your semantic layer, Steep will enable you to ship your metrics to your users and empower them to do their BI work together.

Stay tuned for more in this space.
