There is a real need to make this process clear and transparent so those working both inside and outside of the data function can understand how essential using investment in data is.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
In this 'Age of Data,' organizations are evolving to embrace technological advances. Data has become a key currency on which organizations can gain an advantage over their competitors and drive business success. Creating a data-driven culture has become essential as organizations strive to embrace data insight at every level.
The Data Science Leadership Summit will gather executives working in data strategy, data science, Big Data, Analytics and Open Data from the world's most innovative companies. "This rapidly changing environment has shown the importance of using data to drive decision-making," said David Barton, Analytics Division Lead at Innovation Enterprise. "There is a real need to make this process clear and transparent so those working both inside and outside of the data function can understand how essential using investment in data is."
In her presentation, 'Analytics Beyond Data Science: Culture at Etsy,' Nellwyn Thomas, Group Manager, Data at Etsy will share how Etsy uses data to inform product development and decision-making. Nellwyn will explain how building a data culture that extends beyond a data science team offers unique challenges and opportunities.
