Data Management & Reporting

Mention the word “analytics” and images of pretty charts, complex analyses and/or pivotal insights come to mind.  But those are only some of the more visible and sexy aspects of analytics; there is much more to the analytics value chain.  The analytics value chain really starts with data; data that is curated and extracted across disparate sources, cleaned, validated, processed, and stored in a manner that is accessible for analytics.  A lot of work goes into data management and processing before analytics can even start. 

It's amazing how much data is out there. The question is how do we put it in a form that's usable? – Bill Ford
