How to Build a Winning Data Team


Many organizations think that adding advanced analytics capabilities, such as machine learning, is simply about hiring a few Data Scientists.  They don’t realize that successful data projects are built on solid foundations. What happens when management is misled or unaware of what a solid foundation for data teams entails? The entire project is at risk of failure when key capabilities are missing or understaffed.

 In this webinar, Jesse Anderson, Managing Director of the Big Data Institute and Author of Data Teams will cover:

  • The importance of a solid foundation and how to create one;
  • The three key data teams – Data Engineering, Data Science, and Operations – what each does, their unique skills, and their relationship to each other;
  • How DataOps impacts your team structure.
