The Future of Data Explorer

with 2 comments

You might have seen me mention Data Explorer a few times over the last year in various blog posts; it’s a self-service ETL tool that is currently available via SQL Azure labs:

I’ve had a lot of fun using it and so I was pleased, and quite surprised, to see the new version of it being used in the keynote here at the PASS Summit on day 2. After a few behind the scenes enquiries, I can now confirm that the ‘Data Explorer experience’ is currently being worked on by Microsoft, and a public preview of ‘the new Excel-based experiences’ (ie what was shown in the keynote) will be available pretty soon, hopefully. Which is very good news.
