Make Your Data a Priority.
I certainly will.
But remember, becoming analytically driven is more than only the data…
The main challenge in becoming a truly analytical company is in how you actually utilize your data and how you start driving decisions through data instead of only feeling. That means that you can unleash your creativity to focus on figuring out new actions to drive your business based on true insights and knowledge instead of playing the guessing game.
… it’s also how we should work together…
Becoming analytically driven is more than “just” technology, it’s at least as much about the team that builds. To become truly successful, the development need to be business centric and, I believe, agile.
… and at the heart of it all, is you and your business needs.
“Data scientists are involved with gathering data, massaging it into a tractable form, making it tell its story, and presenting that story to others.”

“Big Data is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it.”
