SAN FRANCISCO, March 4, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Periscope Data, the world’s leading analytics platform for data professionals, today announced that the Company has been invited to co-present a customer case study with Flexport at Gartner's Data & Analytics Summit in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
Tom O’Neill, Co-Founder and CTO of Periscope Data, will present new case study findings with Patrick Steigler, Director, Data Science at Flexport on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. entitled: "Tracking Tariffs: Flexport’s Data-Driven Approach to the International Supply Chain."
Tom and Patrick will delve into how Flexport uses data to help companies ship goods internationally from over 100 different countries. With operations that span the globe, unforeseen factors such as weather events, strikes, and government regulatory changes are the norm, not the exception. Flexport relies on Periscope Data to empower its data scientists with up-to-the-minute analyses on these factors and drive operational workflows to alert their clients. Recently, the team built a “tariff calculator” that enables operational users to find and alert any clients impacted by the recent U.S. federal government tariff changes. Ultimately, this has enabled Flexport’s clients to have unparalleled control, transparency and peace of mind over their supply chains.
“Patrick has been instrumental in ramping up Flexport’s data team, having joined as their first data scientist in the early stages of the company’s growth,” said O’Neill. “He has since brought on a team of data analysts, data engineers, and data scientists to support a comprehensive data analysis effort as the company grew from 30 people to more than 1,000 in just three years. We’re looking forward to sharing his insights with the Gartner audience and shedding light on the process of data maturity behind one of the world’s leading logistics companies.”
