Recorded SQL Pass Session: Data Science: Every Business is Now a Technology Business

Buck Woody, Applied Data Scientist Microsoft

With the new era of data analytics, a not-so-new discipline takes center stage: Data Science. But is Data Science truly something different than Advanced Analytics, Business Intelligence, or other professional data skills? And does it really transform any business? Yes - to the point that every business, from the local pizza shop to the aerospace industry is first and foremost a technology business. Buck Woody from the Microsoft Machine Learning and Data Science team covers this new discipline, and how any business can use Data Science to do what they do better, faster and cheaper. Aimed at the technical leader, you'll learn how to create and work with a Data Science team in your organization and communicate to the rest of the leadership team how to leverage this new skill.
