In an article published by Inside Indianapolis Business, Michael Schwarz, our Vice President of Data and Development, shares his knowledge in data analytics on how to build a data-driven organization.

Regardless of role, professionals encounter data every day. However, a significant percentage of organizations lack the data literacy skills needed to analyze, draw conclusions, apply, and achieve business value from the data.
