Software Description:

Turn your data into something awesome and access it from anywhere

See what is happening and what happened

Streaming data to your Initial State account not only allows you to see what is happening in real-time, but also allows you to store that data forever. Analyze what happened yesterday, last week, last month, etc. with interactive visualizations built for event data.
