Let’s talk about data strategy. It’s not really a sexy topic, but it’s absolutely fundamental if you want to succeed in data science.
And I don’t want to talk to you about the technology sitting behind your data. I want to talk to you about the soft side of your data. The soft side of data can help you govern the process of getting to good data.
The soft side of data is ensuring that the right business people are involved to maintain your data quality. There are also many data management processes to bring things together.
So, a solid data management strategy is absolutely key to succeed to data science. It’s an established concept from the 1980s, but a data management strategy is more relevant than ever before. So, make sure that your AI or BI efforts have a solid foundation and a solid data management strategy.
