Overview

In this blog post, I provide an introduction to the five filter actions in Flow. Filter actions are functions which select a specific subset of records from a designated data collection based on some target match criteria. This blog post introduces the different types of filters and provides a comprehensive worked video example demonstrating how to configure and implement these filters against a sample data collection. The filter actions are some of the most elementary and integral operations in the Flow computing framework. Mastering the different types of filters is key to data processing, data analytics, and business intelligence workflow design.

Overview

In this blog post, I provide a worked example demonstrating how to import and analyze data from JSON based sources. Flow allows for the consumption of JSON data into a tabular form for analysis without requiring any knowledge of structure or schema. I demonstrate how to leverage this functionality to read and flatten JSON from a web-based resource into a dataset. I then show how to apply transformations to the data by using the expression builder to calculate new data points on the fly. I show how to compute hypercubes against the flattened data and perform a simple language analysis, highlighting the ability to wrangle and analyze the data. Finally, I demonstrate how to export the transformed data to various file formats allowing us to persist the flattened set for use elsewhere.

Overview

In this blog post, I provide a worked example demonstrating how to perform an analysis of blanks on a target dataset. When analyzing data a typical first step is to get an understanding of where there are missing values. Identifying where there are missing values in your data can help you make more informed decisions about your analysis approach.
