    Answer Questions with Speed and Agility

    Historically, IT has been the central point for managing data and the go-to for getting answers. However, smart wrangling helps you answer questions quickly without the heavy dependence on IT. With Smart Wrangling you have the power to clean and unifying messy and complex data sets and create your own calculations by yourself, instantaneously. Ultimately, smart wrangling empowers the modern-day data analyst to manipulate, restructure and enrich data themselves through the technology themselves.

    Let the Data Guide You

    SAP Analytics Cloud’s smart wrangling capabilities introduce a new self-service analytics experience giving the ability to easily iterate between question and insight. The smart wrangling features don’t limit you to the same old repeated processes so instead of waiting for IT to make changes to a data source you to harness what you have and wrangle it with ease to get the job done—swiftly and flexibly.

    You can create complex calculations as part of your workflow with the new custom expression editor. With this, you can build out a sequence of calculations to be conducted in a specific order and capture the answer at the end.  The data validation feature highlights data quality issues and points out erroneous values. For example, if you have a numeric column but a value is written as “Seven” instead of “7”, SAP Analytics Cloud will highlight it for you.

    Now, you can easily iterate between cleaning and augmenting data to gaining insights, with the ability to ask new questions quickly you can let the data guide you.
