The Basics of Data Discovery

Data discovery starts with a sloppy crowd of data coming from multiple directions in a mess of forms. And yet, the process creates digestible information and ends with applicable insights. How does it happen? Data discovery compiles data from multiple sources, and then configures the data so it can be understood and examined. The steps in data discovery can be broken down a few different ways, but they all include (1) data preparation, (2) data visualization and (3) data analysis.
