A very special event with the brilliant Bill Schmarzo, Global CTO of Hitachi Vantara - known around the world as the Dean of Big Data.

Driving Business Strategies with Data Science
“Many consider data the new oil in that in the way that oil drove the economic growth of the 20th century, data will drive the economic growth of the 21st century. In fact, The Economist recently declared that data is the world’s most valuable resource.

To flourish or even survive in a data-crazed world of the 21st century, it’s imperative for organizations to convert their key business stakeholders into “Citizens of Data Science.” Meaning, they should not only understand where and how to apply data science to power the business, but champion a data-first approach toward decision-making across the entire organization.”

The event also includes a Data Visualisation workshop with the brilliant Andy Kriebel, Head Coach with the Information Lab.

Andy, a member of the Tableau Zen Master Hall of Fame, started using Tableau in 2007. Since then, it’s been Andy’s personal mission to help as many people as possible “see and understand” their data with Tableau, which is the focus of his role as Head Coach at The Information Lab’s Data School. Data is knowledge, but Andy believes that seeing data is insight.
