Thursday, April 27, 2023 -

Organisations are increasingly hiring data scientists to improve operations, accelerate revenues and support innovation. But too many times data science projects deliver unsatisfactory results. Fortunately, Business Analysts are equipped to play a critical role in ensuring that the data science projects selected are worth the investment.

This session examines why data science projects fail and explores the various ways that Business Analysts can drive success.
