Microsoft reveals Codename “Data Explorer” tool

Microsoft has revealed a new tool that allows you to view information from an SQL database, spreadsheet, and other sources to clean up and transform it to a coherent report. This is the company’s attempt to “harness the richness of data on the Web to gain new insights”.

“Have you ever had trouble finding data you needed? Or combining data from different, incompatible sources? How about sharing the results with others in a web-friendly way? If so, we want you to try Microsoft Codename Data Explorer,” Microsoft stated.

This new tool allows you to identify data from several sources, discover relevant data and services via the Azure Marketplace, enrich content by combining it and visualizing the results, and collaborate the data with colleagues to make it better.
