The appeal of 1010data has always been in its combination of power and simplicity. 1010data's platform offers a standard set of basic operations. When combined with the robust function library built into the system, these operations (in plain English: Select, Link, Tabulate, Compute Columns, Merge, and Sort) can be combined to produce powerful insights and analysis. Recently, 1010data has elaborated on these basic operations to produce more nuanced and versatile ways of working with 1010data's system.
