In the age of data: Data not Dada, part 2


This podcast discusses how embracing the concept of the new killer apps involves people and roles in an organization that need to coalesce around a rational set of business goals in working with data. New teams of people are forming that are data hungry. They see data as a malleable resource that creates wealth and value in the organization. New roles emerge such as data scientists and citizen analysts—that is, the superempowered end user that is playing with lots of data.
