Who is a Data Leader?

A person in a leadership capacity who wanted to leverage data to improve their function or business.

Challenges:

To grow your company or customer experience, data quality is a must. Data can not be an afterthought.

Perspective on ‘Data is the new Oil’

Data is more of motive power than what you are putting in. The gaps lie in what portions of the business process are actually creating what types of data. Data is a byproduct of some type of action, either internal employees taking in or customers interacting with our platforms.

‘The challenge is always around how to bridge the old versus the new’

The business runs faster than how fast we can implement data solutions.  When we want to transform, there are a lot of people moving into the cloud. The movement started about three, four years ago, but it’s still not stopped.
