HI, I'M JARI. LET ME BE YOUR DATA MOTIVATOR.
Converting and transforming raw data into meaningful information and new insights to make our customers even stronger in their core business. That describes my job in one sentence. Extracting source data from applications and uploading it to our data warehouse, on which we build reports with our BI tooling (eg: Bussiness Objects, Power BI). That's already a bit more concrete, isn't it?
I have the lead in an application where files can be checked for reimbursements to insurance companies. A custom-built application, where previously you could only retrieve data within the application itself. Drafting a good report was very difficult. What I do specifically: build our own dataflow and transformations to make reporting and visualisation possible within Business Objects.
I experience Epic Data as a very open and family environment. We are colleagues, but because of our common focus it feels like a slightly closer bond. Our many events contribute to this. The fact that our management always participates helps to maintain our flat hierarchy. Actually, most of the time it feels like my manager is 'just' a colleague. Except for during the wage negotiations, that is.
