Discussions about fact versus truth come up quite a bit these days, especially with the proliferation of “fake news” and the news media’s coverage of certain facts (and non-facts, for that matter). We hear chatter all over the place where folks bring up hot button issues and claim “90% of people agree with my fact!”and “I have proof that X happened — it’s a fact!” Sites like snopes.com, politifact.com, and factcheck.org exist to remove political bias and interpretation from these “facts,” but why would we need such things?

Success Story – Staples and Pandera build a single version of the truth

 As with many large organizations, creating a single version of the truth that decision-makers can act upon is a challenge. Office supply store Staples is no different. With over 79,000 employees, 2,000 locations, and operations in 26 different countries, it is easy to see why 75 weekly reports and upwards of 175 ad-hoc reports were not going to cut it. These reports were often outdated prior to even getting in the decision maker’s hands, which in turn reduced adoption and confidence in the analytic strategies that Staples aimed to pursue and drive growth from.

From Dead End to Data Analytics

Boston, MA – My name is Brian O’Connor, and a year ago I made the decision to change my career and enter the innovative world of Data Analytics. Everyone wants to provide value and feel useful.

Seeing no growth path and lacking the feel of bringing actual value to my clients, I made the decision to enter the Level Education boot camp. Since then, I have been brought on the Pandera Systems team as a Business Intelligence Analyst and couldn’t be happier with where my career is heading (not to mention the value I am providing to my clients). I was honored to give a speech this past Friday at a Boston WeWork to a group of potential students interested in making the leap into the data analytics space.
