Write SQL reports, see them in Slack. Schedule reports daily, weekly, or monthly.
SQLBot makes you a reporting superstar
All the new kids brag about their "no-SQL" databases. Phooey. Real businesses still use SQL. Create a SQLBot account for free, write SQL to your heart's content and show those young hipsters who's boss.
Click "Add to Slack", then sign into your Slack account directly from SQLBot; choose a channel and a command name. That's it.
Pop into slack, lay down a "/SQLBot 'report magic word'" command, and wham! Results smack you right in the face.
The next time your CEO says, "man, I wish we could see this data in Slack", you raise your hand and say, "I'm your Huckleberry". *

It took me years to embrace SQL. Data isn't meant to be structured, and "Query" is just a fancy word for "Search"! But after years of resisting, I finally got in line. Then, the other day, my boss asked me if I could put some reports in Slack. It's just a newfangled version of IRC, with weird colors! My whole fight against SQL flashed before my eyes. I was at an all time low.
Then I found SQLBot! I can write SQL, and don't have to mess with all the Slack mumbo jumbo! I was preparing myself for a decade-long philosophical war, and now I don't have to. The boss man gets his reports in his fancy GUI, and I can go back to doing what I do best. Debating the pros and cons of various COBOL compilers on Reddit.
Now if they only had a Fortran parser...
Take your no SQL databases and shove 'em. I grew up on SQL, and still eat it for breakfast. In fact, I once spent 4 years avoiding any fancy "user interface" and working directly in SQL. I was like Tank from The Matrix, but instead of looking at falling green characters I stared at left outer joins.
Slack rocks. You know what doesn't rock? Getting SQL report results into Slack.
Before SQLBot, getting SQL results into Slack meant building a hubot Slack bot, calling Heroku dataclips to get their JSON results, formatting those in CoffeeScript, and dumping them into Slack. SQLBot makes this a thousand times easer and a million times faster, worth its weight in gold.
