Paribus 365 Data Diary
Welcome to My Data Diary

Hi, I’m Poppy Fair-Facts – welcome to my Data Diary! I have been the Product Evangelist and Data Quality Guru at Paribus 365 for over 15 years. In that time, I have witnessed the volume of data created by businesses increase dramatically, and helped many of them to fix the cause of countless issues in data quality within Dynamics 365. To capture this valuable experience, I thought there was no better way than to a keep a diary about all that we have learnt.

From the technologies we have available to keep track of our personal data, to the ways of detecting duplicate records in your CRM system, my collection of diary entries is here to discuss and share with you my thoughts on all things data, and hopefully answer many of your questions along the way.

Share in the love, insight and wisdom.
