All About Stories

Einstein Discovery and its stories are the hidden and powerful gem of Einstein Analytics. My feeling is a lot of companies have licenses to create stories but do not know how to go about it. On this page, I have collected a series of blogs to help you to understand what Einstein Discovery is, what you can do with the tool and how to get started.

This work has not been possible without a list of people that have contributed content and feedback. So thanks to Olfa Kharrat, Colin Linsky, Reinier van Leuken, Darvish Shadravan, and Randy Sherwood.
