Top Google products to learn for an analytics engineer

Data analytics requires pulling data from the required sources, blending it and then finally presenting it in form of visuals (dashboards or reports).

Following are the Google products that make life easy for a data analyst / scientist:

  1. Google colab:
    A Jupyter lab styled lab IDE that can directly connect to Google drive / Google sheet allowing results reproducibility and collaboration in the team. The best advantage, no more needing to install packages on local, and hence avoiding version conflicts!

  2. Google Data Studio:
    A free dashboarding tool for the analysts. You can point the data to Google drive or other well known data sources.

  3. Big query: The big data solution for data analysts. Write SQL queries for NoSql database!
