MyInsight Data Discovery, Authoring & Assembly

Smart Data Parsing & Profiling

Business users upload their own datasets which are automatically processed by the MyInsight parsing and profiling engine. This engine separates the measures and dimensions for each dataset and allows users to modify the aggregation type on a given measure. Users can also rename or exclude any column or even an entire dataset simply by checking or unchecking the corresponding box.

Automatic Data Modeling

DashInsight automatically recommends measures and dimensions to be included in the dataset, as well as the data relationship between the fields with the same name and data type. Users can also manually create custom relationships, and select the measures and dimensions that will be included in the final dataset.

Empower users to discover & automatically model data, author & assemble content with stunning visualizations.
