Intelligent data import and create a database in Azure
For small organizations or groups in large organizations, there should be a way for someone to provide historic spreadsheets with similar columns. Machine learning or AI can be used to identify similar columns with slightly different names. Then the data should be imported with simple clicks to create a database in the backend. This new database is like the old Access database in cloud. That way, a lot of historic data or even ongoing data from different teams can be easily consumed. I was involved in at least two projects where I need to write or run a program to extract data into back end database. It is laborious task that people with less computer knowledge usually put off. That slow down their ability to be limbo in using analytics.
With AI, this is already available. You can suggest the table structure. Then the light database can be accessed using power BI, so you facilitate data, import, report, analytics all in the same workflow to speed up their decision making.
