As any “data scientist/engineer” will tell you, data-wrangling continues to take an inordinate amount of time, and real-life data pipelines are brittle in nature, as data sources and business requirements inevitably change.
qsv affords you the raw speed and agility to quickly adapt to these ad-hoc changes on the edges. The complex transformations, and analytical heavy lifting still happens in your tool of choice.
