Overall Role: Information Management Project Support
Assigned Tasks: Migrating data, analyzing excel spreadsheet data, assisting in maintaining ‘IRISS’ website.
Analyzed messy financial/accounting data on an excel spreadsheet. Cleaned up inputs and made the information clear and valid in order for budget preparation.
Assisted in a relatively large data migration from a very old SharePoint to a newer Office 365 database. Assisted in identifying the best way to migrate this data through testing various online data migration tools and then made recommendations.
Analyzed a website in need of upgrades in order to send problems to a website developer. Walked through the steps a customer would take and identified every issue along the way. I documented those issues and wrote them up into a presentation that was sent to the developer.
What I Learned:
Specifically for my Data Analytics class, I learned how extremely convoluted and messy real data can be. It is a bit more difficult to analyze, sort, and clean an actual company’s data compared to the examples we were given to work on in class.
