This new tool will become a favorite among data analysts in their endless pursuit of manipulating data in order to make faster and more confident decisions. By removing the constraints that previously came with data transformation, Smart Wrangling encourages a self-service experience that is all about the data, and encourages ad hoc data exploration, data visualization, intelligent augmentation, and business planning.
Data analysts can immerse themselves in the brand-new UI featuring a model overview panel that allows all modeling actions simply through drag-and-drop. The direct access to data means that there is no need to model data anymore. Users are not forced to create a Model or even required to know any planning jargon when using Datasets.
