Identifying root causes of data quality problems

When incorrect data is discovered, companies react with data profiling and data cleansing and typically build a plan to avoid repeating the mistakes that led to it.

However, data quality issues are much more challenging to resolve when they span the enterprise. 3 common challenges create data quality issues and make it difficult to resolve them:

  • Not treating data as an enterprise asset
  • Executive management indifference
  • No time to implement & monitor best practices

In this session we’ll discuss how data leaders are overcoming these challenges in their companies.

Will cloud ecosystems make insight to action a reality in 2023 & beyond?

Insights disconnected from action aren’t very valuable. If insights from ingested data don’t feed back into operational systems like CRM or marketing automation, the insights either go unused or require massive manual effort. Modern cloud ecosystems and APIs are now at the point where this problem can be solved without a massive development effort.

In this session, we’ll discuss ways in which companies are finally turning insights into action by leveraging cloud ecosystems. What tooling is most valuable? What pitfalls should you be on guard against?

Why AI/ML advanced analytics projects fail

Advanced analytics projects using ML are inherently complex with multiple points of failure. Companies can improve the likelihood of success by avoiding the most common stumbling blocks. Some of these include:

  • Model testing, validation & maintenance challenges
  • Lack of data governance
  • Finding, engaging, and retaining talent

In this session, we’ll explore ways companies are improving the odds of success for advanced analytics initiatives.

When should companies go all-in on Machine Learning?

Many companies waste money and resources applying machine learning to challenges that simple SQL will solve. How do you decide when it’s time to make the investment in resources to build solutions that actually require ML? The most common answer is that you need to make data-driven predictions for your company. Some indicators we’ll discuss:

  • Do you need to influence trends you’ve seen in historical data before they happen again?
  • Are you looking at ways to apply statistical analysis to your data beyond the capability of SQL?
  • Do you need to analyze new data sources that don’t work in your data warehouse?

In this session, we’ll discuss how companies with large data volumes can decide if it’s time to embrace the ML stack.
