The Analytics Corner

A Spotfire and Alteryx Blog

Welcome to The Analytics Corner! Some of you may be new to my page, and others may know me from my work on the (formerly Data Shop Talk blog. All DST content is collated and organized here. Please note, DST has changed their theme since I worked for them, the posts look a little rough as a result. My goal here is to help you turn your analytics clutter into clarity. This is a Spotfire and Altyerx blog, and I want to share my knowledge of these two awesome applications. Posts come out 1 – 5 times a week.

Look at all them pixels!
