Business Intelligence and Analytics based on Metabase
Last updated 18 May 2020
The DataView add-on is currently in beta.
Table of Contents
Metabase is an open source business intelligence tool. It lets you ask questions about your data, and displays answers in formats that make sense, whether that’s a bar graph or a detailed table.
Your questions can be saved for later, making it easy to come back to them, or you can group questions into great-looking dashboards. Metabase also makes it easy to share questions and dashboards with the rest of your team.
For more information on Metabase, visit the Metabase documentation.
