As an organization grows, the quantity of vital data workers must hold monitor of inevitably grows proper together with it. And, as your tech stack will get extra sophisticated, that data finally ends up break up up throughout extra locations — buried in Slack threads, tucked into Jira tickets, pushed as recordsdata on Dropbox, and so on.
Dashworks is a startup aiming to be the go-to place for all of that inner information. Half customizable begin web page and half search engine, it hooks into dozens of various enterprise providers and provides you one hub to seek out what you want.

Extra spectacular, although, is its cross-tool search. With backgrounds in pure language processing at corporations like Fb and Cresta, co-founders Prasad Kawthekar and Praty Sharma are constructing a instrument that lets you ask Dashworks questions and have them answered from the information it’s gathered throughout all of these aforementioned Slack threads, or Jira tickets, or Dropbox recordsdata.
