Nebraska will continue to recover from pandemic, forecast shows | Nebraska Today

During 2021 and early 2022, the Nebraska economy will continue to recoup the economic losses from the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the new three-year forecast from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Bureau of Business Research and the Nebraska Business Forecast Council.

Employment levels will rise, ultimately returning to pre-pandemic levels by 2022, according to the forecast. Nebraska employment dropped by 3.7% in 2020 compared to 2019 and is expected to grow by 2.6% in 2021 and 1.5% in 2022. Employment growth should then “normalize” to a 0.9% rate in 2023, which is the average rate of job growth in the pre-pandemic period from 2010 to 2019.

Automating Data Analysis Is a Must for Midsize Businesses

Midsize company leaders are right to be excited about the opportunities for harnessing the value in their large datasets. But the data in midsize companies tends to be messy — spreadsheets and plain-text files, many in different formats, are difficult (if not impossible) to integrate. It takes a lot of time and money to clean it up to make it useful. Poor-quality, disintegrated data can sabotage even the best initiatives, including AI designed to increase value and efficiency. HdL Companies, a Brea, California–headquartered government services firm, used their data strategically and has seen significant efficiency gains. The author offers three lessons for leaders to consider when getting started with automating data analysis.
