This past weekend Stephen Cargill, Matthew Chase and I took on the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). The PMC is a 192 mile bike ride across the State of Massachusetts from Sturbridge to the Provincetown. The purpose of the PMC is to raise money for cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and spread awareness of this terrible disease. The goal this year was to raise 48 million dollars.
The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) is a charity bike-a-thon across the State of Massachusetts to raise money for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. As a corporate sponsor for the event this year, Experian has had the honor of showing our support for this worthy cause in a number of different ways. The PMC, which has been held annually since 1980, will take place tomorrow, August 5. We have three employees who will be riding: Matt Chase, Wes Forsyth, and Steve Cargill, and several of our employees will be volunteering at the lunch spot we sponsored at Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School. We will be cheering on the riders and passing out water.
Whether you’re working on a large data migration project, or simply trying to answer business questions with your data and having issues, Experian Pandora should be part of the conversation. We often hear from customers that they have disparate databases, leverage excel to house important data, or just have no idea how bad their data really is. This often leads to us running data tests on a subset of their data, which typically cannot tell the whole story, or is not statistically significant based on the total size of their database.
