ALPS opens up a knowledge base. It thoughtfully brings together all the various folks responsible for data analysis along with their expertise in tools and data sources. This facilitates efficiencies in data projects especially when it comes to finding the data you need to answer questions. Many times, someone else has already tried to solve the problem you are working on or something close enough that you can leverage their knowledge. It seems like ALPS is really onto something with bringing people together to learn from each other.
