MEETING RECAP

 

SPEAKER 1: ISAAC OTTO, DAIMLER TRUCKS NORTH AMERICA

Isaac Otto from Daimler Trucks North America presented two exciting use cases about how IOT devices (and specifically GPS path data) are helping analysts with decision making for making fleets more efficient. Isaac's use case utilized the spatial tools and data prep tools in Alteryx and is full of great tips and tricks.
