“Iteration is needed to converge at a good idea and without Observable’s framework, I don’t think my design and feedback iteration loop would be fast enough to really work. Being able to say, ‘What do you think?’ and ‘Let’s try again’ fundamentally changes the game,” said Brooks Mershon, Software Engineer at UNAVCO.
“We want to get out of a mindset where you go to the data people and they turn a crank and findings come out, but it inevitably leads to more questions.

We all share the same understanding about its limits and strengths. In our environment, having a shared mutual understanding is invaluable.”

Observable Platform Evolves, Further Simplifying Exploratory Data Analysis

Organizational barriers, lags in analysis and review, or lack of a common language – there remain huge unaddressed roadblocks in how teams are able to make use of data quickly for better decision making.
Founders Melody Meckfessel, former VP of Engineering at Google, and Mike Bostock, D3.js creator, recognized this gap in the market and are delivering on their vision for Observable by creating a platform for data collaboration to meet this need across industries, in companies large and small.
