Let's dive into some of the details of each platform.
Striim provides pre-load transformations written in SQL or Java and specified through a drag-and-drop interface.
Funnel lets users create preload transformations on dimensions (such as traffic source, media type, and campaign) by specifying rules through a graphical interface. Users can also transform data (such as cost, clicks, and impressions) via rules and formulas.
