RAW experienced phenomenal growth in 2023, surpassing tens of thousands of users and witnessing hundreds of millions of invocations of its services. We’re always been keen observers of what our users seek, and we see more and more of you asking about improving the flow of real-time data into advanced AI systems, especially Large Language Models (LLMs). Allowing you to quickly build powerful AI-driven tools and applications is our core focus as we venture into 2024.

So let’s see how we’re committed to expanding our capabilities and offerings to meet these needs:

More OpenAI GPT integrations

In 2023, we introduced support for ChatGPT plugins, allowing you to quickly build APIs that integrate with ChatGPT, teaching it new knowledge in real-time. And now we are adding support for GPTs, the new OpenAI mechanism that allow users to design conversation models with specific conversational tones and domain-focused knowledge that is served in real-time by APIs. With RAW, you can easily craft these bespoke APIs, which can range from sharing personal cooking recipes to offering secure access to a company’s CRM system. This feature is now available in closed beta and will be General Availability (GA) very soon!

Introducing SQL support

While Snapi is an excellent language for combining and manipulating complex structured data, there are times when simplicity is key. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce SQL support on the RAW platform. This new feature allows for the execution of endpoints written in SQL, alongside Snapi endpoints. Currently, in closed beta, we invite you to reach out to us for early access and be part of this exciting development.

And more: Python, Javascript!

Throughout 2024, we’re set to broaden our language support in RAW, besides Snapi and the newly-announced SQL. That’s why we are also excited to announce that we will be rolling out support for Python throughout Q1, and Javascript just after. This means you will be able to write RAW APIs in either SQL, Snapi, Python or Javascript. This addition is a direct response to the diverse needs of our user community: you build APIs where you are most comfortable, and can freely combine all these languages and even allow them to interoperate together, all at full native performance.

A Plethora of New Connectors

Throughout 2024, we’re introducing an extensive array of connectors – across all supported languages -, enhancing the versatility of our platform. Expect integrations with:

  • Cloud Services: AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, Alibaba, Heroku, Hetzner, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, DigitalOcean
  • Data Platforms: Microsoft 365, Airtable, Kafka, Databricks
  • Public Datasets: Finance, AbuseIP, HackerNews, LinkedIn, Mastodon, Reddit, RSS, Twitter
  • Development Tools: Atlassian JIRA, Confluence, Trello, CircleCI, Jenkins, GitHub, BitBucket
  • Operations Tools: DataDog, Grafana, Prometheus, GoDaddy, UptimeRobot
  • Authentication Services: 1Password, Auth0, Okta
  • CRM Systems: ZenDesk, Salesforce
  • Payment Platforms: Shopify, Stripe
  • Communication Tools: Slack, Zoom

Notably, Salesforce, Atlassian JIRA, Confluence, and GitHub integrations are set to be General Availability as early as Q1.

High-Performance Code Generation for Snapi

One pivotal moment of 2023 was an internal shift of our code generation engine to the GraalVM/Truffle framework. This move boosted Snapi’s performance but also opened a realm of possibilities that we are eager to explore and share with you in the first quarter of 2024.

Our transition to Truffle is not just a technical upgrade; it’s a leap towards efficiency. Every RAW user will benefit from this change, experiencing up to 10x faster execution times. And the best part? This transition requires no action on your part – it’s all happening seamlessly behind the scenes.

Join Us in This Exciting Journey

2024 is poised to be a landmark year for RAW as we strive to become the ideal platform to flow real-time data to AI systems, particularly to LLMs. Your feedback and collaboration are vital to our growth and evolution. Reach out to us to share your thoughts and be part of this exhilarating journey towards a more integrated and AI-enhanced future.
