Google makes Data Studio and Cloud Dataprep available to everyone

Google has taken Data Studio and Cloud Dataprep out of the beta and made them available to everyone. Data Studio is a free business intelligence tool, Cloud Dataprep is used to prepare data for analysis.

Data Studio has been in existence since 2016, Silicon Angle knows. The aim of the program is to make visual analytics more accessible. It does this by providing a way to access data from sources such as BigQuery, Sheets, Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner, Cloud Storage, Google Analytics, YouTube Analytics and Google Ads. The data can also be analysed and retrieved from 500 external data sources via more than 100 partners.

Data Studio then makes it possible to visualize and explore the data via dashboards and reports from almost every common source. The insights can then be shared with colleagues.

The service has more than one million users worldwide and is now equipped with new functions. For example, Data Studio Explorer becomes available, which enables direct integration with BigQuery. It is also possible to convert a dataset into a visualization with a few clicks using Explorer.

In addition, a reporting template gallery has been set up so that new users can quickly get started with Data Studio. In a few weeks, a new community function will be created that supports its own visualizations.

Cloud Dataprep has also received a number of new features requested by beta users. These include a new and a simpler user interface, the ability for teams to collaborate by sharing flows and other tools aimed at analysts in companies.
