A Day in the Life: Ad Hoc Requests & Automated Tools

As a data analyst, my job is to get people the information they need.  Instead of just responding to each request separately, my goal is to create tools that allow users to ask and answer questions on their own.  Part of this is out of laziness and not wanting to do the same thing over and over again, but it’s also because this gives my users direct and timely access to the information they need, when and where they need it.
