Hello, ladies,

Please register here: https://lnkd.in/eK3Hq3i


18:00 – Login and Welcome
18:15: “One year in data – a binary decision?”
My insights and recommendations
Anastasia Dobasis, Business Intelligence Consultant, Areto Consulting

Anastasia will talk about her side entry into the big and inspiring world of data analytics. Her experience will give you a real and relatable position of how to get into data analytics, what you need for mastering the step into the data jungle and what you should be careful about. Hence, the talk will not be a check-list of the needed technical skill-set but rather a supportive guide to find your own way into tech-related jobs. Use her obstacles and experience as your learning and take-home message

18:45: “The people ecosystem of Advanced Analytics”
Dr Michael Weichert, Head of Advanced Analytics and Business Partnering, Vodafone

Quite often when talking about Big Data, the subject is reduced to the use of AI/ML on some data and the rare individuals capable to do this. Over 80% off all Big Data Projects fail. I’ll not elaborate on all the dimensions but focus on one that is crucial: People and their capabilities and roles in making Advanced Analytics (AA) business relevant.

In my view, the success of Advanced Analytics depends on understanding of the different roles involved in an Advanced Analytical process and the right combination of skills. There is much more than the unicorn doing the ML wonder box, like data/feature engineering, connecting business and analytics. The relevance of the latter is quite often underestimated. In this talk he will (along the iterative process of Advanced Analytics) introduce the roles, their profile and responsibilities to make any Advanced Analytics project successful.iconicon
