My First Data Scientist Project

I was tasked with an assignment to map records from one system to another to another.

To do so, I'd had to use fuzzy logic.

And the project was successful to some degree as I mapped 41% of the customers.

And after completed the project in 4 or 5 weeks, it's sat idle, for about 4 months now.

The topic appeared once or twice, which I gave an overview of the project findings.

Except interest went away as fast as it appeared.

So today, I have a meeting to discuss the project.

To explain how the data was mashed together and how the data flows through the system.

And it's my expectation that the info will be useful.

To know when a sales lead came in, from what system, how it flowed into SalesForce, which a Salesperson, reseller or distributor sold a product, to appearing in the Great Plains financial package.

In essence, closing the loop from initial click to money in the bank and all points in between.

I put a lot of time and effort into understanding the project from the business rules side, the technology side, and the analytic side.

And it's my understanding that's basically what a Data Scientist does.

I learned a lot and that's what counts.
