If you have a Data Licence permitting you to download, store and analyse, you can also take advantage of our Data Connector. This is particularly useful for Data Scientists and Analysts to explore our events in Tableau - a powerful BI Tool. Don't have Tableau? No worries, you can still download a CSV to import into another BI tool of your choice.
