Census partners with Google Cloud to make BigQuery data more actionable

Your data warehouse is the most complete, accurate, and trustworthy view of customer data. Unfortunately, this 360º view of your customers doesn’t extend to the operational tools that are used to engage with customers every day.

When companies centralize customer information in data warehouses like Google BigQuery, the logical next step is to make that data actionable in business tools like CRMs, marketing automation platforms, and customer success platforms.

At Census, we’ve been helping customers seamlessly connect any software or business tool to BigQuery for several years. Instead of migrating data between applications, customers access data from a single source of truth, ensuring that insights are always current, consistent, and complete. 

Census Reverse ETL makes BigQuery data actionable in downstream business tools

Reverse ETL is the last mile of the data stack

Census makes it easier than ever to scale the impact of data and analytics. Data teams can deliver trustworthy first-party data or fine-grained metrics for personalization and scoring to their stakeholders in minutes, not weeks. With reverse ETL, every team has the data they need to act and automate with confidence.

Reverse ETL is the missing piece of the data stack. It was designed to help companies leverage all the customer data in their source of truth and empower teams with real-time analytics in the tools they already use. Now, salespeople and customer success managers don’t have to look at 10 different tools to understand what their users are doing.

Census achieves Google Cloud Ready – BigQuery Designation

Today, we’re excited to announce that Census has achieved Google Cloud Ready – BigQuery designation, proving that we meet a core set of functionality and interoperability requirements when integrating with BigQuery.

Operationalizing data is a priority for BigQuery users. Our mutual customers like Fivetran, Bitly, Mixpanel, Clearbit, and more use Census to sync data from BigQuery into the business tools that marketing, sales, and customer success teams use every day. 

Connecting Census to BigQuery only takes minutes, and customers benefit from automated logging, error monitoring, and alerting natively integrated with the warehouse. Also, our native integration with BI platform Looker (acquired by Google in 2019) helps users sync business logic directly into downstream apps to drive action.

Census also integrates with other tools in the Google ecosystem, such as Google Analytics, Google Sheets, Google Ads, Google Offline Conversions, and Google Cloud Storage.
