You can easily add new Integrations, by clicking on the Add... button on the top-right corner of your window.

The Model Tab is "where the magic happens". Here you can take all the data you have uploaded in Y42' platform and modify them as your wish. Join them with other data sources, extract from them your desired information or fully transform them.

In the Visualize tab, you will find your organization's dashboards. A dashboard is an interactive visualization of the analyses you created. These analyses can be common charts such as pie or bar charts or more advanced statistical methods such as standardized regressions or driver analyses. All these are easily done and created with just a few clicks and allow you to get insights in just a few seconds. You can create a new dashboard by clicking Add... in the top right corner.

The Activate tab allows you to feedback your data into your applications or files. That way, you can easily automate data flows.

If you're the owner of an organization, you will also be able to access the Admin tab through the main navigation. An owner is one of three roles in an organization besides a Manager and a Member. An Owner that has permission to all resources and organization settings. A manager has access to all resources but no organization settings. Finally, a member needs assigned permissions to access resources.
