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, business intelligence developer and paid lots of dues supporting a data warehouse in back office banking. Currently I enjoy my work, travel and the opportunities to engage with a variety of first class organizations as part of a business intelligence and data analytics consulting practice.
I received an MBA from the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business with a focus on information technology management, and a master of science in information management from the Syracuse Information School (iSchool) with a focus on data science. I’m also a magna cum laude graduate of Clark Atlanta University with a B.S. in Computer Science. Last but not least, I’m a Certified Business Intelligence Professional (CBIP).
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.
