Superset is a data exploration platform designed to be visual, intuitive and interactive. Superset’s main goal is to make it easy to slice, dice and visualize data. Superset allows data exploration through rich visualizations while performing fast and intuitive “slicing and dicing” against just about any dataset.

Data explorers can easily travel through multi-dimensional datasets while creating and sharing “slices”, and assemble them in interactive dashboards. Superset works on all most used browsers and has been built as a web app, so it does not require any additional desktop installations for power features.

As such, Superset is the only tool out there that can be used completely in the web browser which is an advantage. Superset is designed to be highly available. It is “cloud-native” as it has been designed scale out in large, distributed environments, and works well inside containers.

On top of having the ability to query your relational databases, Superset ships with deep integration with Druid (a real time distributed column-store). When querying Druid, Superset can query humongous amounts of data on top of real time dataset. Connectivity with Druid extends the capabilities of Superset to visualize billions of rows of data thanks to its in-memory, column-oriented distributed architecture.

The platform features a powerful security model that allows tight control over who has access to what information. Apache Superset is a powerful business intelligence tool that has flexible data visualization options and is ready for enterprise usage. Superset is currently in use at some of the fastest-growing startups including Airbnb, Lyft, Shopkick, and Udemy.
