Build robust models on billions of data points

Today’s environment creates a heightened emphasis on accurate and robust business forecasts that anticipate needs such as changing a market from wholesale to retail, predicting product demand, and understanding product mix and product levels by store location. 

Microsoft Excel was designed for creating sophisticated models, but data extracts, joins, splicing and data wrangling can be a challenge.
