Monthly Newsletter – September 2016


It’s “Back to School” month for students across the country – a perfect time for all of us to embrace continued education! In that spirit of learning, we have established, an online resource for data analysts, data scientists and anyone who deals with data on a regular basis. The virtual community features how-to videos, advice and insight from third-party resources, such as industry analysts, as well as some of our own data prep experts – all designed to help you be even more effective and efficient by dramatically reducing time spent on data prep! We encourage you to visit the site to check out blog posts from across the industry, attend “Pilkington’s Prep School,” a series of 2-minute training videos on how to maximize your use of data prep for analytics and operational use cases, and share your opinions and best practices.
