Use smart algorithms to group and standardize similar values or misspellings in seconds. Combine data using join and overlap detections.

Tag, annotate, search, and share your data assets in a centralized workspace. Publish ready-to-use information to downstream analytics and visualization tools like Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Qlik, MicroStrategy, or business applications and customer portals.

Collaborate and Govern

Audit, version, and track the lineage and usage of your information. Use the bi-directional lineage from Paxata to data visualization tools to trace the data presented in a dashboard back to the exact data prep project that sourced the information, and reversely see the downstream data visualizations that a data prep project is tied to.


Publish information to enterprise and cloud sources or directly consume in BI and Analytic tools. Single-click integration with BI and Analytic tools enables contextually movement between business dashboards and data prep for faster time to value. Watch Video
