    Hi, I’ve been using Power Query for about 4 years and i use it every single day, I love it. My employer (50k+ employees) uses Google BigQuery, Tableau and RapidMiner as it’s preferred BI tools. After having used Power Query I find RapidMiner ‘awkward’ and so continue to use PQ instead. Later this month i will also be able to compare Tableau’s new Data Prep feature when IT update Tableau to version 2018.1.1. It looks as if it might be quite good, we’ll wait and see…
