Welcome! My name is Anthony Smoak. I’ve been a data professional for many years working at various Fortune 500 companies. My interests lie primarily within the technology and business spaces. Currently I’m a manager at a consulting firm, but I’ve been a data analyst, business analyst, financial analyst, BI developer and paid lots of dues supporting a data warehouse in back office banking. Currently I enjoy my work, travel and the opportunity to engage with a variety of first class organizations as part of a business intelligence and data analytics consulting practice.
I’m a Certified Business Intelligence Professional (CBIP) that holds an MBA from the Georgia Institute of Technology Scheller College of Business and a Master of Science in Information Management from Syracuse University. I’m also a magna cum laude graduate of Clark Atlanta University with a B.S. in Computer Science.
I created this blog to share commentary on data visualization tools (most notably Tableau), company technology strategy and selected content that I have generated during my years of graduate study and work experience.
