What Does Data Exploration Mean?
Data exploration is an informative search used by data consumers to form true analysis from the information gathered. Often, data is gathered in a non-rigid or controlled manner in large bulks. For true analysis, this unorganized bulk of data needs to be narrowed down. This is where data exploration is used to analyze the data and information from the data to form further analysis.
Data often converges in a central warehouse called a data warehouse. This data can come from various sources using various formats. Relevant data is needed for tasks such as statistical reporting, trend spotting and pattern spotting. Data exploration is the process of gathering such relevant data.
