"It’s a paradigm shift for how professionals can think about workflow tools, allowing them to spend less time finding and compiling data and more time evaluating what that data means for their organizations” said Bret Boyd, CEO of Knoema.

Knoema creates tools to allow individuals and organizations to discover, visualize, model, and present their data and the world’s data in order to inform better decisions and produce better outcomes. The latest tool created by Knoema’s global team of data engineers, economists and developers is DataFinder. DataFinder brings Knoema’s database outside of the Knoema online product environment and directly into user workflows as an Excel for Windows add-in.

Users can use the DataFinder plugin inside of Excel by opening the Knoema tab on the Toolbar and making a search query. The results will be presented as a time series, which users can select and add to Excel simply by clicking on them. As on Knoema.com, there are filters to sort the information by year, country, source, or another indicator. There is also a refresh function to automatically populate bulk data in your spreadsheet from one reference source.

“Our organization focuses on providing individuals and organizations software tools to discover, visualize, model, and present the world’s data, and today marks a big step forward—the world’s data from over 1,200 sources integrated directly into research and analyst workflows. It’s a paradigm shift for how professionals can think about workflow tools, allowing them to spend less time finding and compiling data and more time evaluating what that data means for their organizations” said Bret Boyd, CEO of Knoema.

DataFinder is available as part of Knoema Professional. Knoema Professional is a subscription cloud-based product that enables industry professionals, financial analysts, and researchers to find, manipulate, visualize, and export data in an integrated environment to more easily create comprehensive reports and analytic products.

Knoema’s users come to the Knoema.com looking for key data to enable strategic decisions in their organizations about topics like commodities statistics, GDP per capita, population density, literacy rates, inflation forecasts and more. With tools like DataFinder, this information can come directly to them inside of the tools they use everyday.
