This section helps you understand what explorations are and how you can use them to achieve your goals.

What are explorations?

Exploration are a combinations of datasets, relationships and aggregations put together so that your data consumer can safely combine data and create reports without relying on technical expertise.

This help you:

  • Boost data adoption by providing a product to your end users

  • Make your user more data savvy by giving them tools they understand

  • Maintain your company metric layer by controlling how data is being queried

  • Reduce maintenance when definition change - when updating a metric or a dimension all reports are subsequently updated with your changes.
