A Comprehensive Guide to BigQuery Data Types
How computers and applications interact with data (inputs and outputs) depends on their data types. A data type is a classification that governs how compilers and virtually all programming languages collect, store, and interpret data to define events properly. Thus, a comprehensive understanding of the various data types an application supports is important to effectively define, transform, and utilize your business data. Google BigQuery is a fully managed, serverless enterprise data warehouse with built-in machine learning and business intelligence (BI) capabilities. It works across cloud platforms and enables users to process and scale their large, read-only datasets. This post from Ifeanyi Benedict Iheagwara on Panoply’s blog will introduce and discuss the various data types supported by BigQuery.
