Well, we survived the heat of the summer! With autumn on our doorstep and the summer heat finally breaking here in the northern hemisphere, our US and EMEA teams are looking forward to dusting off our boots, jackets and pants again. For me, personally, I’ll just be glad to not sweat every time I even think about going outside into that dreaded Oklahoma heat! September was the busiest month on the blog in a hot second, with a total of 26 stories between the main (and newly redesigned!) InterWorks blog and the Curator by InterWorks blog. Variety is the name of the game with this roundup, featur ..read more

You’re trying to gain insight into what that data is trying to tell you. Raw data inherently doesn’t have that information; you have to work with it, shape it, clean it and create calculations to really gain the insight from i ..read more

A regular expression, also commonly known as RegEx (pronounced as /reh-JEKS/), is a powerful text-processing framework that uses a sequence of characters to define a search pattern.

by Dan Murray
3y ago
This post is the companion to our recent webinar on the modern BI stack. I chose the word “deploying” here intentionally because doing it well means you never finish. You will be “deploying” permanently. It would be convenient for our crew and advantageous for all of our clients if we were able to participate in the earliest stages of every project. However, that’s rarely the case. We work with many fine companies, many have excellent technical staff, and some have senior leadership that already “gets it.” Most often, we come in after a project has already started, and sometimes we’re engaged ..read more
