One of the biggest challenges facing analysts today is converting datasets in complex formats such as JSON to CSV so they can be more easily analyzed. JSON has gained tremendous popularity as a data exchange format meaning that a growing amount of data from websites, social media platforms and applications is formatted in JSON. As organizations expand their analysis efforts to include these new data sources, the painful process of converting data from the raw semi-structured JSON format to the row-and-column structure found in CSV files becomes a time-consuming bottleneck.
