Why is Puppet retiring the Reflect service?
Puppet is acquiring Reflect in order to add Reflect's data visualization technology to its suite of products. Puppet is not a data-visualization-as-a-service vendor; therefore, the company is not in the position to continue to support third-party users of Reflect.
When is Reflect shutting down its service?
Reflect's service will be retired on July 31, 2018.
Can I continue to use Reflect's service even though Reflect will not continue to support it.
No; the third-party cloud-hosting of the visualization components, data integration, and embedding services will be cancelled, rendering the service unusable.
What other vendors can I turn to for data visualization?
Many data visualization vendors exist with embedded analytics offerings including Tableau, Looker, Periscope, Mode, and Qlik.
