What is Ascend?

Ascend is the world’s first Autonomous Dataflow Service where you can build, scale, and operate continuously optimized pipelines with less code and fewer breakages.

Powered by Ascend’s Dataflow Control Plane, the platform combines declarative configurations and automation to manage cloud infrastructure, optimize pipelines, and eliminate maintenance across the entire data lifecycle.
