According to a recent survey published in Forbes, data scientists spend nearly 80 percent of their time collecting and cleaning data, and only 20 percent actually using it.

Emily Huang, CEO and co-founder of fintech startup idaciti, thinks that 80:20 ratio has to flip, and she has a solution. In the latest edition of AFP Conversations, Huang discusses how idaciti parses public financial filings from the SEC every 10 minutes, so finance professionals can focus on analyzing and leveraging the data instead of collecting and cleaning it.

At AFP 2019, this October in Boston, finance professionals will find plenty of solutions on how to maximize their use of data. Visit www.afp2019.org/register to sign up and use discount code PODCASTAFP2019 at checkout to save $100.
