How COVID-19 is Changing our Relationship with Data
An increasing proportion of businesses use scientific methods to analyze data. Yet, because key decision-makers do not believe in a data-driven method, a sizable number do not turn their data into actionable information. Instead, these individuals rely on their instincts to drive decisions. If used in lieu of data,such hunch-based mindsets often lead to inefficiencies and wasted…Continue
What is ETL?
Put simply, an ETL pipeline is a tool for getting data from one place to another, usually from a data source to a warehouse. A data source can be anything from a directory on your computer to a webpage that hosts files. The process is typically done in three stages: Extract, Transform, and Load. The first stage, extract, retrieves the raw data from the source. The raw data is then transformed to match a predefined format. Finally, the load stage…Continue
