It's often the questions before the queries - questions such as "what do I filter by", "what do I join on", and "which version of the data is most up-to-date" - that make a critical difference in analyst productivity.
Knowing how to find the right table can make the difference between a well-defined query that quickly obtains the right answers, or logging hours or days fruitlessly searching for relevant data sets.
What if searching for relevant information within an organization were as easy as googling an answer? What if your query tool provided actual recommendations from experts in real time?
