The Author

My name is Dan. I run an automation and analytics consultancy called MergeYourData.com. Most of my curiosities on this blog are about data, but I’ll branch out to other topics every once in a while (or maybe a little more than once in a while)….

I’ve been using Tableau since around 2012 and it’s my tool of choice for data visualization tasks, although I’m always trying to add other tools to my toolbox.

Some of my philosophies:

  • Systems/environments are connected in a lot more ways than visible to the eye. There are always more interactions between components to discover and influence.
  • Maximize edges. Where ecosystems and environments meet are where collaboration, opportunity, innovation and learning are maximized.
  • A balance of collaboration and isolated work brings about the best results. Collaboration to bounce ideas, theories, and progress off other experts. Isolated work to think and apply thoughts that surface during collaboration.
  • Finding balance in lifestyle, diet, exercise, and thought is the best long term strategy.

I updated these last in September 2020. They might change as I learn more and gain new perspectives.

If you have a problem centered around data or automation in your business, I’d love to hear about it! Schedule a meeting with me to chat about it: https://www.mergeyourdata.com/schedule-a-meeting
