Who is BEEM for?

BEEM is for small, medium or large enterprises looking to accelerate their data-driven approach, structure a company-wide data strategy, or put data at the center of their digital transformation - with a reasonable budget and short timeline. You can start creating value rapidly in one department (Marketing, Sales, IT, Operations, etc.) and then expand the use of your BEEM Data Hub across the organization easily. In addition, the BEEM solution is scalable, customizable and made to leverage any current and future tech stack.

Is my data secure with BEEM?

Absolutely, guaranteeing data safety, privacy and governance is a priority at BEEM. Partnering with best-of-breed cloud infrastructure and management providers like AWS allows BEEM to leverage its data safety processes to employ extensive data security protocols, such as complying with standards including PCI-DSSL, SOC 2, SOC3, FISMA and Fedramp. With our security protocols, you are not sharing your infrastructure with anyone, and have full control of it. Your BEEM account provisions your own AWS cloud account (single-tenant) and every process runs in its own secure isolated container. We take data security very seriously so if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to message us and ask.

Is BEEM an end-to-end solution?

Yes, BEEM is an end-to-end solution, eliminating the need to set up multiple tools for one job. A typical data infrastructure is composed of tools for ETL, Data preparation, Cloud infrastructure (lake + warehouse), custom coded connectors running on servers, multiple libraries maintenance, job scheduler for automation, API layers, sFTP servers, VPN connections, consistent monitoring, governance and security challenges. BEEM allows you to skip this work by organizing all of your data needs and requirements, so that you can focus on using your preferred tools (aka destinations) and creating value with your data without needing to build and maintain tools, pipelines and infrastructure.
