Guest blog post by Kenneth C Black


I've been writing a Tableau and Alteryx-focused blog for 1.5 years on Wordpress and haven't thought of writing anything here on DSC. I just completed a two-part series that discusses solving problems using innovative approaches with Alteryx and Tableau, which were my 99th and 100th blog posts. They are longer than usual but offer a good insight into my background and why I write a technical blog.

My blog is focused on solving business and science problems using Alteryx, Tableau and R. I write a lot about technical techniques that I have developed using these tools. I have extensive experience with Tableau, beginning in 2008. I have less experience with Alteryx and R but I am deeply involved in using them for some amazing applications.

How and Why Alteryx and Tableau Allow Me to Innovate

  • Part 1: You will eventually learn why I have such passion for using Alteryx and Tableau and why I feel compelled to write about these technologies.
  • Part 2:  I focus on explaining how I see creativity and innovation being expressed through the use of Alteryx and Tableau. I explore how the combined usage of these tools allow us to solve complex business and science problems. I think this is important to document because we are now working on problems that were not possible to solve just a few years ago. It is my goal over the next 100 blog posts to document some of the concepts we have developed to accomplish great things.
