Winning organizations are gaining the upper hand by building data-driven cultures that make smarter, more agile decisions. But fragmented data, disjointed tools, and siloed information can stand in analytics teams' way as they work to deliver insights and focus on high-impact work.

Mode is a powerful, collaborative analytics platform designed by, and for, analysts. Armed with tightly integrated SQL, Python, R, and interactive data visualization tools, analysts use Mode to turn data into actionable insights in one central location. Simple sharing tools let people throughout an organization access dashboards tailored to their needs and explore underlying data on their own. With everyone analyzing and collaborating on consistent data within the same platform, every department is able to quicken the pace at which they make brilliant decisions.
