  • Enhanced data accessibility: FlexQuery’s built-in transformation and federation capabilities streamline data integration across applications via SQL or APIs. The ability to materialize data in memory or on disk, query live from databases, or blend modes provides increased flexibility.
  • Flexibility and openness: FlexQuery is a composable data service layer that efficiently handles large volumes of data. Built on open-source tooling, it allows users to craft tailored solutions with pluggable modules for diverse data-related tasks.
  • Elimination of data tool sprawl: FlexQuery supports not only the creation of traditional BI dashboards but also native support for Jupyter Notebooks as well as any other Python-based ML tooling. 

FlexQuery now forms the computational heart of GoodData’s Analytics Lake concept, integrating data, metadata, models, and reports into a single platform. This integration simplifies analytics application creation and governance, accessible through various interfaces including Python, React, SQL, and more.
