DataOps Fundamentals


Earn a certificate from the University of San Francisco, an opportunity exclusive to NEXT 2019. You’ll meet and learn from thought leaders in the field of business analytics and big data. You’ll also receive a copy of Bill Schmarzo’s latest book, The Art of Thinking Like a Data Scientist.

Insights from data can underpin decision-making and provide competitive advantage, but only if you can get the right data to the right people at the right time. This is the role of data operations, or DataOps. In this workshop, Mouwafac Sidaoui and Bill Schmarzo will focus on the first step of DataOps: identifying the right data.

You’ll be introduced to the concept of thinking like a data scientist. Through interactive workshop exercises, you will start the process of applying this to your business.

This workshop is aimed for everyone from business leaders to data engineers. It’s for anyone who wants practical insights on how to make the connection from data operations to data monetization and business outcomes.
