Thanks so much for having me excited to be here.

All right, well, you are calling in from the Green Mountains. So you know, you come by the name of your consulting practice, honestly, but give us give us a little background. How’d you get into data?

Jeff Skoldberg 00:42
Sure. So I first started in data in 2008, when I was working at Keurig, as a call center business analyst, I was with Keurig for about 12 years doing data a couple years on actually on the BI team. So kind of transitioning from business analyst who is just knee deep in data all the time to it’s actually now it’s my job title, even though I’ve been doing it the whole time. Yeah. And then about five years ago, I said, Hey, let me try and do this on my own. See what happens. So about five years ago, I left Keurig to become an independent consultant. And since then, I’ve been helping companies kind of on their analytics journey, doing end to end stuff. So business analyst, the data pipeline, architect solution architecture, as well as the last mile, which is analytics to dashboard. So that’s what I’ve been doing for the last five years.

John Wessel 01:31
So Jeff, one of the topics I’m really excited to dive into is cost optimization. That’s one that’s near and dear to my heart, previously being in a CTO role. So I’m really excited to dive into that one. Any topics, you’re excited to cover?

Jeff Skoldberg 01:46
cost optimization, sounds awesome. We can talk about some frameworks that I use with my clients as I’m walking them through their business problems, and we’re thinking about how we’re going to solve the problems that they come to me with. That’s another one. And we could also talk about maybe how the data landscape has evolved over time.

John Wessel 02:03
Yeah, okay. Sounds great.
