Last year, we launched Starter Kits, which are ready-made, predefined workflow templates that help users with some of their most popular use cases. 

Our “Kit Hub” is constantly growing and within it you can check out dozens of Starter Kits which have been created by our team of data experts. In less than six months, our Starter Kits have been implemented hundreds of times by our customers, and we thought we’d take a look at the 4 most popular Rivery Kits to date.

1.  Facebook Ads (Snowflake, Redshift, Databricks)

In 2021, Meta (formerly Facebook Inc.) generated 114.93 billion U.S. dollars in ad revenue. With so many customers using the social network to promote their products and services, it’s no surprise that our Kit to measure and manage Facebook Ads data is at the top of the list.

The Facebook Ads kit combines data from multiple entities in the Facebook Ads Marketing API and provides a full data model in Snowflake, Redshift or Databricks for tracking paid Facebook performance and insight analysis.

2. Google Analytics (BigQuery, Snowflake, Databricks)

Data from Google Analytics is crucial to track and analyze visitors on your website. Understanding more about your site visitors, and how they behave via Google Analytics through web analytics can help you make the most out of your visitors and potentially turn them into customers. 

The Google Analytics Kit uses the Standard Google Analytics Report and breaks this out into four reports for data by Users, Pages, Events, and Sessions. This enables the user to have easy access to digestible information within Google Analytics.

3. Tableau Refresh

Tableau is one of the most popular data visualization tools. It helps users create beautiful and easy-to-understand dashboards and reports. One of the main advantages of Tableau is how it takes a minimum amount of time to create impressive dashboards. With the help of quick drag and drop functions, users can create interactive reports within minutes. Making sure the data on your Tableau dashboards is always accurate and up to date is what makes the Tableau Refresh Starter Kit so popular.

The Tableau Refresh Kit can refresh Tableau data sources through Rivery Action Rivers using their API. Instead of trying to update these sources on a schedule within Tableau, this kit can be scheduled to run directly after a River, seamlessly adding the latest and greatest data to your front-end dashboard.

4. Zendesk (Snowflake, BigQuery, Databricks)

Zendesk software designs solutions to foster better customer relationships. Founded to democratize customer service software and make it easy to try, buy, and use, Zendesk is built on an open and flexible platform that is quick to set up and fully customizable. 

The Zendesk Starter Kit brings together a number of ticket centered reports to create a large dimension and metrics table. This data source captures insights to enable support and performance analytics.

It’s easy to understand why these are the most popular Rivery Kits; however, we have dozens of additional kits. You can find them here.
