What BAs and PMs need to know about Data Science
Presented by: Derek Belyea
Data science and advanced analytics are rapidly transforming and disrupting many industries. Data scientists now lead many “unicorn” startups and recent data science graduates are commanding large starting salaries. For all the attention that data science receives it is not widely understood that many data science projects fail to deliver meaningful business value.
Through stories and examples this illustrated talk explores the work of data scientists, how they add value and the skills that make them successful.
You will learn why this discipline has become critically important to so many organizations and a disappointment to others.
While data scientists can discover answers to complex real-world business questions, their value can be significantly enhanced when working with other professionals, including project managers and business analysts.
Attendees will learn what to expect when working with data scientists and how best to make projects involving data science deliver benefits to the organization.
- Learn how data scientists work and add value
- Learn the best ways to work with data scientists
- Learn how to avoid the downsides of data science
