«Digital Shift» February event

Data science and data-based decision-making are an important new domain for companies to consider. We will therefore be taking a closer look at and discussing the connection between data science and corporate strategy.

“We believe it is important to create a bridge between the goal (corporate decisions) and the opportunities offered by the tool (data science). Only then can data science answer business-critical questions from which strategies or action can be derived.”

Thomas Ebermann from Liip will give a presentation on what companies need to make data-based decisions. Datahouse’s Daniel Meister will address the question of why data science projects fail within an organisation.
