Dr. Hayes, Chief Research Officer of AnalyticsWeek and developer of the DS3 says, “Our hope is to use the DS3 to optimize the value of data by improving how data professionals work together to glean insights from data.” Hayes continues, “While the publicly available DS3 is best suited for individual data professionals, we are customizing the DS3 for enterprises to help them optimize the value of their data science teams.” By integrating DS3 scores with other data sources, enterprises will be able to improve how they acquire, retain and manage data professionals.
