We're very excited to introduce The Data Mix - a new show focusing on some of the leading individuals in the Data and Analytics space! Our aim is to bring you our guests in a relaxed and conversational format, where you can ask questions and we can all learn more about some of the topical items in today's Business Intelligence and Data driven world.

Brian Booden and George Beaton are honored to have Steve Wexler as our first guest - Principal at Data Revelations, multiple Tableau Zen Master, and author of The Big Book of Dashboards and most recently, The Big Picture.

Very excited to talk to Steve about his latest work and views on the BI industry right now, as well the burning question that everyone wants to know - what do you think of the pie chart?
