Augmented analytics is a class of analytics powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) that expands a human’s ability to interact with data at a contextual level. We use AI to make analytics accessible so that more people can confidently explore and interact with data to drive meaningful decisions. From automated modelling to guided natural-language queries, our augmented analytics capabilities are powerful and trusted to help organisations leverage their growing amount of data and empower a wider business audience to discover insights.

Watch now

There’s a growing disconnect between business leaders expecting a data-driven organisation, and employees who aren’t comfortable either questioning metrics or leveraging data analysis to drive actions. We’re excited to get AI into the hands of everyone to help answer relevant questions, make meaningful decisions and ultimately transform their business.

Ask Data

Ask Data allows people to use natural language to interact with data through a fast, powerful interface – it's as simple as typing a question with guided search suggestions to get instant answers. Results come in the form of rich data visualisations that enable business users to get the insights they want from their data.
