Harnessing the Power of Answering a Quick Question with AgileData


Have you ever found yourself in need of some quick insights from your data without the time or need for a full-scale data analysis?

AgileData’s ‘Ask a Quick Question’ feature is designed for just that purpose, providing on-the-fly answers to your most pressing data questions.

The process is refreshingly simple. You start by uploading your data into AgileData in a CSV, JSON, or xls format. AgileData then takes over, automatically profiling the uploaded data and creating rules for further processing.


Collect - Upload File

After the data upload, AgileData automatically transforms the data into what we call a ‘history tile’, which serves as an immutable record of your data.

Next, AgileData generates additional rules and creates a ‘Consume Tile’, a step that can be achieved with just a click. This Consume Tile contains the transformed data, ready for exploration.

There are several ways you can explore your data.

You can create reports, dashboards, or visualisations in Looker Studio, a data visualisation tool provided by Google. You can also visually explore your data with Google Facets Dive, an open-source tool developed by Google’s People + AI Research (PAIR) team.

But the standout feature is the experimental ‘Ask ADI’, which utilises a connection to ChatGPT. With ‘Ask ADI’, you can ask questions about your data in plain English. The question is transformed into an SQL query which is run in AgileData, and you get your results instantly. No need to write SQL queries yourself.

The ‘Ask a Quick Question’ feature proves invaluable in various use cases. If you’re a data consultant facing last-minute questions from clients, you can get quick answers on-the-fly. It’s also a powerful tool for Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA), helping you quickly grasp the main features of your data, get insights, and identify potential issues.

In essence, AgileData’s ‘Ask a Quick Question’ feature is a potent tool that removes friction in your day-to-day data analysis work, letting you keep pace with the dynamic data landscape while delivering the insights you need in minutes.
