Developing a Modern Enterprise Data Strategy

1:30–5:0pm in Room 331
John Akred and Edd Dumbill

Big data and data science have great potential for accelerating business, but how do you reconcile the business opportunity with the sea of possible technical solutions? Fundamentally, data should serve the strategic imperatives of a business—those key strategic aspirations that define the future vision for an organization. A data strategy should guide your organization in two key areas—which actions your business should take to get started with data, and where to start to realize the most value.

In this tutorial, we will explain how we work to solve real business challenges with data, including the following topics:

  • Why have a data strategy?
  • Connecting data with business
  • Devising a data strategy
  • The data value chain
  • New technology potentials
  • Project development style
  • Organizing to execute your strategy
