Jennifer Viola has 20-years of experience in the Data/Analytics Industry. She started her career at Harris Bank as a data-entry clerk, where she quickly caught the data analysis bug by being curious about the performance of the team as a whole and in regards to data quality and accuracy. For the next 10 years, she worked her way up the ladder there focusing on reporting and analytics, while completing her undergrad degree during night school, gaining valuable technical expertise on the job and rounding out her proficiency with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. She’s successfully niched herself between Business and IT, and spent the next 10 years of her career gaining invaluable experience in different industries doing everything from ETL integrations to high level analysis for C-level executives while earning a specialized Business Intelligence Master’s Program degree in SQL Server Technologies. She’s a recent published author in the Data Analytics Industry, through TDWI and its premium publication The Business Intelligence Journal, having written a paper titled “Proven Tactics That Will Simplify Your Data Management Strategy.” She always looks forward to turning her invaluable experiences into teaching others how to achieve the same successes.
