Enable every employee to make business decisions based on customer event data

Interana is the only platform that makes it possible for any employee to ask unlimited, unbounded questions and get answers from all of your raw event data generated by users, in seconds. Employees can ask virtually anything - from product development, to customer success, to engineering efficiencies and get answers about how customers interact in real time and through time.

Interana was founded by the team who built Facebook’s analytics platform, still used by more than 50% of its employees. The Interana team is made up of industry veterans looking to simplify the world of analytics. Customers include Microsoft, Comcast, Uber, Sonos, Edmunds, Hootsuite, and others.
