What you need in a smart data discovery solution

Conversational interaction

Ask questions and get recommendations using the common terms and phrases you use on a daily basis (Natural Language Processing). Guided interactive discovery in natural language can deliver deeper and smarter insights than data visualization alone.

Icon for automated insights

Automated insights

Your understanding and experience can impact the way you collect, analyze and report on data.  Incomplete data, misinterpreted results, or simply reporting on the same metrics over and over again can hide the real drivers of your business.  Recommended related visualizations help guide you to further exploration, and system-generated insights uncover trends you may not have thought to look for. This reduces the opportunity for bias to influence your results and uncovers valid sources of success for your business. 

Icon for a comprehensive view

A comprehensive view

Access data from all your sources in one place. Combine your data with additional resources, like weather and geospatial data, so you can have a comprehensive view of your business. Quickly and easily share your insights with detailed reports and dashboards to drive timely decision-making for greater impact.
