Hi there! šŸ‘‹

Iā€™m Alan, a Data Engineer at an Ocean Institute responsible for the sustainability and protection of our oceans. The Shark Control department recently approached me as they want to analyze the evolution of shark attacks over the last century. They believe that a better understanding of attack factors will improve the prevention of incidents during aquatic activities.

  1. I need to make sure that the data is permanently accessible by the Shark Control department. I have seen too many colleagues struggling with their data warehouses, and I want to avoid this trap by using managed solutions.
  2. I need to provide meaningful and user-friendly visualizations for my colleagues to act upon. I have seen enough complex and non-user centric dashboards in my life!

šŸ§ How can I build an available, fully managed, and cost-efficient data warehousing solution? And after that, how can I build an application that provides my non-technical users the information they need to take meaningful decisions?

I have been scratching my head for a while, until I read this blog post šŸ¤Æ.

I used this set up to provide the Shark Control department a data story telling application, and they absolutely love it ! šŸŽ‰

Want to see the outcome? Look at the following charts
