Observable empowers people to explore, collaborate, and communicate data insights through a single canvas.

With Observable Enterprise, Organizations Gain Access To
Observable is different because it enables users to perform exploratory analysis and build custom dashboards with the help of an engaged, global community of developers, data scientists, journalists, educators and students who publicly iterate and share their work on a daily basis. Currently, there are three different Observable tiers available:
"The current business intelligence tools are siloed and limit collaboration across organizations. These tools restrict the data exploration and insight, creating friction and frustration between colleagues. Making sense of data is one of the most urgent challenges facing our connected world," said Melody Meckfessel, chief executive officer and co-founder. "Observable Enterprise offers web-based, real-time collaborative business intelligence. Working with data is an essential skill. Observable Enterprise enables people of diverse roles (developers, analysts, executives, stakeholders) to explore and visualize data and then make data-driven decisions together that benefit the business."
Stitch Fix And Observable Knit APIs Into Beautiful Views
Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that fuses the human touch of expert stylists with the precision of advanced data science and algorithms to recommend items of clothing tailored to an individual's unique fit, size, budget and style. Stitch Fix's well-respected Data Platform team started using Observable to enable exploration of data across the many endpoints in the company's service-based enterprise platforms.
Stitch Fix has hundreds of internal data sources and algorithms for styling, operations, merchandising, inventory management, allocation, and warehouse optimization. Data is foundational to the company, driving decisions and actions across departments.
"With a number of our Stitch Fix data team members collaborating daily on a wide variety of notebooks, our partnership with Observable is now an important part of our enterprise stack," said Tarek Rached, director of Algo UI at Stitch Fix. "The low-friction nature of Observable doesn't just empower collaborative decision-making across teams, it also empowers data scientists at Stitch Fix to have more autonomy because they can tweak and visualize data and share their findings much faster, with no hardware or software concerns."
