7pm “The need for Awesome Data Quality” - Jan Saevanee

Do you hate inconsistent excel worksheets? Have you heard the saying rubbish in rubbish out? We want to share our story on these issues and search for a solution with you.

Due to unclear requirements, unformatted and inconsistent data structure the Business Intelligence team had a setback while creating data visualization reports. The team spent a lot of time in the ETL process. Which meant that we created less valuable reports. The value was lost because we did not understand the vision and the story behind the need for such visualizations. Our proposal is to create a data pipeline and qualification process.”

Jan is part of Business Intelligence team at Aberdeen City Council. The BI team is responsible for creating data visualisation to help decision makers make a better decisions based on evidence. Jan will present the topic alongside Real and Maksim, internship students from university of Aberdeen.
