Tyler carried the weight of good and bad news between IT and the business, helping each team understand the limitations of Tableau before further downtime was generated, while helping generate net new reports to better help the business see and understand their pricing data!

Working together as a team, Tyler worked 1on1 and in scrum meetings to better understood the requirements and data relationships necessary to architect many data sources into a single understandable data model. Tyler helped between the ETL team and the front-end developers, with ad-hoc training, tips, and hands on developing.
