Database Trends and Applications explored the two new ways Sisu augments data preparation: a shared query repository and a connector for Amazon Athena. The full announcement is detailed here: Augment Data Preparation With New Collaborative Query Library.
“Rather than writing a query once and throwing it away, the new query repository creates a central place for collaborative data teams to write and share queries in Sisu, allowing them to accelerate data preparation and deliver faster answers to the business. The new library stores saved queries for each data source so users can select the best one, or write their own custom query. As they are writing, Sisu auto-completes queries and provides the ability to preview a new table before saving and running the analysis.”
“In addition, Sisu’s new collaborative workflow provides teams with instant visibility into the best queries for each metric, enabling them to deliver consistent, trusted answers. It is also possible to create new opportunities for business stakeholders across product, sales, marketing, finance, and other functional areas to start answering questions in Sisu on their own, without them needing SQL or BI skills.”
