Reasons Why Google Data Studio is Amazing

Data Studio is Google’s reporting reply to all the users who want to create impressive visualization on top of different data sources and go beyond the data and dashboards of Google Analytics. The data widgets in Data Studio are prominent for their variation, customization choices, live data, and interactive controls (such as column sorting and table pagination). Data sources could be a variety of products which include Google products (Analytics, AdWords, Search Console, Sheets, YouTube, and more), database connectors, and file upload, and community connectors to popular marketing services.

With Google Data studio, one can go from data to insight to wisdom via great visualization supported by the GCP cloud service. It is a comprehensive suite of data analytics tools from Google and with a couple of built-in functionalities like flexibility, scalability, collaboration, and advanced analytics. Data Studio not only is BI workloads backed by the power and scale of BigQuery but also accelerated by BigQuery BI Engine, an in-memory analysis service for fast, interactive visual analytics.

Data Studio handles the authentication, access rights, and structuring of the data in an organized manner. Once a data source is connected to Data Studio, underlying dimensions and metrics are easily available for calculations, transformations, and visualizations.

With Data Studio, one can turn data into compelling visuals with out-of-the-box, community-built, or custom visualizations. The Data Studio service console is not readily available within the GCP console like other services; however, users can open the data studio console via its web URL. Once ready for delivery, include them into dashboards, reports, or data stories and get blazing fast insights when they’re connected to both BigQuery, Google’s MPP analytics data warehouse, and to BigQuery BI Engine, an in-memory analysis service with sub-second query response, high concurrency, and smart performance tuning. Data Studio reports can be easily shared with anyone within and outside the organization, depending on the report configuration. It also comes with the report scheduling option where recipients can receive the report in their inbox at a particular scheduled interval.

The following are the features of Data Studio:

  • Visualized data through highly configurable charts and tables.
  • Easily connects to a variety of data sources.
  • Shares dashboards with the team and or with the external world.
  • Speeds up report development within built sample reports.
  • Usability: Data Studio was designed to support so many easy-to-use features, which seasoned analytics teams are sure to enjoy them.
