Beyond the question of what is happening there is the much more interesting question of why. Why are sales better this year? Why are expenses up? Why is the space between the stars 3.6°K? Only when we look deeply enough into our data will we begin to understand these correlations. When we understand the "why" we are close to predicting future performance based on planned actions. The data hold many answers and Data Science draws them out. That's what I get to do every day, and I get to do it in an organization that is really making a difference.
The technology I use varies based on the needs of the customer. From traditional SSRS reporting, to Power BI on the desk top, to Dundas BI dashboard anywhere, the depth or speed of the data will dictate the delivery methods. The goal is always understanding for decision-making, whether on the operations level or in the board room. Success starts with understanding the needs of the customer, whether internal or across the globe.
