San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
It’s no secret that data scientists are in high demand, as many companies are now looking to capitalize on the Big Data buzz in order to drive better decision-making and business success. As well as building a solid infrastructure to allow for a data-driven culture, it is important to understand what to look for when growing a data-science team.
The Predictive Analytics Innovation Summit – co-located with the Apache Hadoop Innovation and Data Science Innovation Summits – returns to San Diego on February 12 & 13 and is the ideal opportunity to hear case studies and war stories from some leading analytics executives in the industry today. Attendance is essential if you are looking to grow a data analytics team, instill a data-driven culture, or are just getting started on an analytics journey and want to hear how industry pioneers have overcome the challenges that they have faced when putting data at the heart of the decision making process.
In her presentation ‘What should your first data hire do for you?’ Jessica Kirkpatrick – a Senior Data Scientist at Chegg – will discuss her experience of being the first data scientist in a company, and the lessons that this taught her when growing her team. Dave Hastings – Netflix’s Director of Product Analytics, Data Science & Engineering – will also discuss his experience of working in a data culture and how Netflix’s decision to put data at the heart of the company has led to the success that the company is now experiencing.
In addition to Netflix and Chegg, speakers from eBay, Walgreens, Mashable, Sharp, LinkedIn, Facebook and many more will share their expertise on how the smarter use of analytics offers the key to business success.
