Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 10:55 am

Regardless of whether you want to work for a start-up, a large company, or a non-profit, your employer’s “analytics operating model” will be a critical part of both expectations, and your ability to succeed. Are data scientists expected to develop their own pipelines? Do data engineers sit with line of business project teams, or with IT peers? Are there documented developer best practices and how strictly are these enforced? Attendees will be provided the opportunity to develop an understanding of common analytics operating models, and how their personal skills and working style may match or clash with such models.
