Featured Presentation:

Create Your Own “Alternative Facts” (and Dimensions) to Make Believable Dummy Data

Britton Gray, Director of Business Intelligence Project Lead The Way

Do you ever need a good large demonstration or benchmarking data set that isn’t business proprietary? When I went looking, I couldn’t find any good large data sets out there. So, I decided to make my own. In this session, we will go through the process of creating believable dummy data that provides some insight and real-world variability. We’ll discuss where to find base information, how to make use of robust randomization, and some geographic coding concepts.
