Presentation: Performance Data Analysis You Can Use

Abstract:  Time is always of the essence at fast-moving missions at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).  Launch dates loom.  To turn project data into information that can be used for decision making requires use of business intelligence software such as Tableau to quickly analyze and keep it relevant.  Business intelligence software can analyze data coming from a myriad of sources, including earned value and financial, and enables the ability to join and review data to quickly discover anomalies critical for decision making.

This presentation will cover the mass of data and provides examples of how business intelligence software supports data convergence for reporting.
