What is Apache Superset?

Apache Superset is an open source data visualization and exploration platform designed to be easy-to-use for beginners while still supporting complex use cases for power users. It provides users with a comprehensive set of tools for creating engaging visualizations in a variety of formats. With Apache Superset, users can quickly explore and understand data, create beautiful dashboards, and share insights with their teams.

Apache Superset is designed to be highly intuitive, allowing users to quickly uncover trends and relationships within their data. It has built-in integrations with popular datastores like Postgres, MongoDB, Cassandra, BigQuery, and many more. This makes it easy to explore data from multiple sources at the same time or just connecting to a single database without having to build custom connectors. Superset also allows developers to extend it by creating custom visualization plugins so you can add new chart types using your favorite data visualization libraries like D3JS, Recharts, ChartJS, and more.

Apache Superset simplifies the process of exploring large datasets by providing visual cues that allow users to focus on areas of interest. Queries can be created using the drag and drop UI without users needing to know SQL. At the same time, Apache Superset does allow users to query using SQL if they want to. Thanks to its drag-and-drop interface and customizable filters, different aspects can be explored quickly without need for complex coding or SQL queries. This makes the tool especially useful for analysts who don’t have extensive technical knowledge but need to gain insights from their data in an efficient manner.

Apache Superset is frequently used for data analysis. Superset allows users to easily filter data sets by various criteria, such as time period or geographic region. Superset also includes a number of statistical functions that can be used to perform more complex analysis. The big benefit of Superset is that it is easy to use out of the box while also being quite powerful for more advanced users.

Dashboard Creation

Superset provides a user friendly interface for creating dashboards. Dashboards created in Superset can include a variety of charts and graphs, which can be used to visualize data sets from multiple data sources if necessary. Dashboards created in Superset can be shared with other users, making it easy to collaborate on projects.


Superset makes creating reports easy by including a number of features to automatically generate reports from data sets. For example, Superset allows users to export data sets as CSV files, which can then be imported into spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets. Dashboards or specific charts can also be configured so they are sent as automated alerts or reports to email addresses or specific Slack channels
