Join Capventis for Whiskey and Data: Chasing Time Seminar

Join Capventis for Whiskey and Data: Chasing Time Seminar


Time invested in preparing and blending whiskey improves the resulting spirit.

Days and hours preparing and blending your data often doesn’t improve the outcome, leaving less time for analysis and real insight. 

Spend 3 hours with Capventis and Alteryx in Teelings Whiskey Distillery and you’ll see: 

  • How using Alteryx can accelerate the preparing and blending of data from multiple sources, in repeatable and scheduled workflows 
  • How to develop predictive capabilities and model your future business
  • How AON has streamlined ETL activities and delivered Self Service Analytics
  • The texture, nuance and taste differences between single grain and single malt whiskey

Giuseppe has been an Alteryx user since 2015 and a Tableau user since 2014. Giuseppe began at the Aon Centre of  Innovation and Analytics (ACIA) as a Senior Data Analyst. His passion for Alteryx developed when he was asked to investigate the possibility of using Alteryx to replicate complex SQL queries. The success of the project led to a new journey in the data analytics arena, and Giuseppe became so passionate about Alteryx that he started to lead the Alteryx user group in Dublin and to showcase the ACIA use cases with the AON’s colleagues worldwide. Ultimately, Giuseppe became the BI and Visualisation lead in the centre.
