I am very pleased to announce that we will be kicking off the New Year by launching Brijj. For those unaware, Brijj is our Cloud-based SaaS workflow management platform designed for data, analytics and insight teams.
I’ve used a lot of tools in the 15+ years I’ve been in data. My favourite, by a mile, is still “old faithful” (Excel) and I wont apologise for it. But I’ve dipped my toe into other “data lakes” (get it?!) with Tableau and QlikView being some of personal favourites.
You’re going to learn an awful lot in your career. Indeed, you cant afford to stop learning new technologies & techniques. But there are some fundamentals, some basics you need to know no matter who you are. So below are the essential skills any aspiring Data professional must know.
Throughout my career as a BI, Analytics, Research and Insight professional, I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon. Those of us who are involved in creating Insight sometimes forget who and what it’s for: Its for other people to make a decision or take action. Period.
Recently, we conducted some research to get a feel for the best way to continue developing our product but also because we were just really interested in the Insight Workflow in general.
The role of data within business has never been more important, giving management the insights required to make important decisions based on facts, trends and statistics.
The trouble is there’s just so much of it out there, and new technology is generating ever more sets of data that it can be confusing to sift through the noise and pick out the information you need to make those crucial decisions.
I’m going to start this by making a bold statement: Business intelligence tools within the workplace are next to useless if your corporate culture and team integration is lacking.
“I think we need to reframe the question.”
“That’s a disappointing result.”
In your analytics and Insight career, have you ever heard statements like this?
