Hello and good morning, everyone! My name is Kyle Hutchison, and I am a sales manager at Trey. Today, I am joined by my colleague Stewart Frankie, a senior Solutions Architect. We are here to provide a group demo of our product and answer any questions you may have. Throughout this demo, we will be discussing various topics and use cases related to our automation platform. We encourage you to ask questions and participate actively. So, without further ado, let's dive right in!

Background on the Space

The world of software integration has always been complex and varied, with multiple platforms and systems in place. Over the years, this space has evolved and transformed, giving rise to different names and categories such as middleware, integrations, ETL, no-code, low-code, and more. Traditionally, heavy-duty platforms like IBM, TIBCO, and Informatica dominated the market with their on-premise solutions primarily targeted towards IT departments. However, with the advent of cloud computing and the proliferation of APIs, the landscape has changed drastically. Today, businesses rely on numerous software platforms across different departments, resulting in a need for a robust automation platform that can connect and integrate these systems efficiently.

The Need for an Automation Platform

The increasing complexity and diversity of software platforms have led to the rise of citizen automators – individuals within various departments who require the ability to connect and automate their systems without extensive coding or IT support. These non-technical users need a flexible and powerful automation platform that can scale seamlessly while being user-friendly. They want to be able to connect different back-end systems, drive automation, and empower their teams to efficiently run operations. Tray fills this need by providing a platform that enables users to connect, automate, and drive actions across multiple platforms, all without requiring extensive coding knowledge.

The Market Landscape

The market for automation platforms has grown significantly in recent years. Mary Meeker's analysis of the entire market back in 2017 revealed that companies across different departments use around 90 different software platforms on average. This trend highlights the need for a platform that allows easy integration and automation across multiple systems. Tray stands out in this competitive landscape by offering over 300 connectors that enable users to connect to a wide range of platforms. Unlike other providers, Tray does not charge customers per connector, providing a major advantage for businesses dealing with multiple platforms across different departments.
