1. New Data Import Connectors for Unmatched Versatility 📊
Say hello to our shiny new data connectors! We believe in giving you all the options you need to import data hassle-free. With this release, you'll have even more ways to import your datasets into the AI & Analytics Engine. But that's not all - stay tuned because we're planning to introduce a whole range of connectors in the upcoming releases, both for import and export. This means you can seamlessly connect to your datasets from an extensive list of sources.
In this release, we're introducing connectors for cloud storage solutions, additional database connections, and Stripe, just to name a few. Here's a sneak peek at what's new:
Cloud Storage: Access your files from AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage, and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. The best part? You can import multiple files at once into a single dataset, just like with the "Local File Upload" option.
Database Connections: We've got you covered with support for AWS RDS and Google Cloud SQL. Plus, our existing database connectors like MySQL and PostgreSQL still work like a charm. They're also compatible with providers like Microsoft Azure SQL, Amazon Aurora, GaussDB, and Google Alloy.
Stripe Integration: You asked for it, and we delivered! Import data from Stripe effortlessly. And don't worry, we've got more third-party apps coming in future releases.
2. New App Builder Pipeline for Clustering: A Game-Changer 🧩
We're making clustering easier than ever with our brand-new app builder pipeline for clustering. Whether you're a seasoned data scientist or just getting started, this feature is designed to streamline your workflow. Here's what you can expect:
Build from Scratch: The new app builder allows you to prepare your dataset and apply clustering in one smooth flow. No more jumping between multiple steps. Your clustered dataset and insights will be available at the end, just as you'd expect.
Feature Selection Made Simple: We've enhanced the user interface for selecting and inspecting features. Now, it's easier to specify feature types and get a clear view of your data.
Summary Stats and Visualization: Visualize your column data based on your feature type choices. It's all about making your clustering process as informative as possible.
User-Friendly App Setup: The layout of the app setup page for clustering mirrors the one you're already familiar with for regression and classification apps. Access your clustering results effortlessly via "View Details."
