Metabase – business intelligence and analytics software

Metabase is an open source business intelligence tool. It lets you ask questions about your data, and displays answers in formats that make sense, whether that’s a bar graph or a detailed table.

Your questions can be saved for later, making it easy to come back to them, or you can group questions into great looking dashboards. Metabase also makes it easy to share questions and dashboards with the rest of your team.

The software supports a large number of databases: Postgres, MySQL, Druid, SQL Server, Redshift, MongoDB, Google BigQuery, SQLite, H2, Oracle, Vertica, Presto, and Snowflake.

Features include:

  • Quick setup.
  • Let anyone on your team ask questions without knowing SQL.
  • Rich beautiful dashboards with auto refresh and fullscreen.
  • SQL Mode for analysts and data pros.
  • Create canonical segments and metrics for your team to use.
  • Send data to Slack or email on a schedule with Pulses.
  • View data in Slack anytime with MetaBot.
  • Humanize data for your team by renaming, annotating and hiding fields.
