Nishi was always fascinated with computers. She studied at Purdue University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in computer information technology and information systems. In school, it was the classes in data that interested her most, making her present position as a business data analyst at Allstate a perfect fit.
Nishi starts every morning by checking her email and calendar to plan out her day. Depending on her deliverables for the week, she meets with the Business and Technical Teams to assess what requirements they each need. She then uses Hadoop, a software framework for storing data, to gather what she needs and analyze it.
