We all know the ability to recognize patterns within data is crucial to many of our jobs. Between advancements in technology, math, and computer science in the last 20-30 years we now have capabilities to uncover these patterns like never before. But one crucial skill that often gets overlooked, and happens way before model development is ever started, is the ability to recognize patterns that allow you to identify crucial problems to be solved for.

This presentation will talk about the importance of being able to see patterns and look at a case study of a current initiative happening at EMC Insurance Companies - improving our property intelligence through geocoordinate data.
