Understanding our data

Developing data fluency begins with understanding where the data originates and how it has been processed. Knowing this is vital if it is to become meaningful and lead to insights and knowledge.

We understand that statistical techniques such as smoothing, trimming and moving averages should be applied at the user’s discretion. Data that has been altered by such methods prior to being presented can at the very least, diminish its value for the user and at worst, influence the user to wrongly interpret patterns and anomalies leading to potential catastrophic results. With QBI, you have the ability to customise each report by choosing what variables to use and which techniques to apply.
