  • Data Science Tools to Maximize Business Value by Sean Hanlon, Deployment Strategist at Dataiku
    It's common knowledge that technology helps us get more powerful tools, but we less often think about on the impact tools have on human behavior, productivity, and business results. Sean will give an overview of the data science market, explain its fragmentation, and highlight solutions to choose the right tool for each business problem.

    Sean Hanlon is a Deployment Strategist at Dataiku, where he focuses on driving successful deployment, adoption, growth and value creation for the company's strategic accounts in the advanced analytics space. Prior to joining Dataiku, Sean was an Economic Consultant at the Oliver Wyman group in NYC where he specialized in data analytics in the context of M&A and financial markets. 

 

  • Lessons from Building a Data-Driven Culture at a Growing Startup by Page Piccinini, Senior Data Scientist at Classy
    Building a data-driven culture at a company is often more about the basics and not the newest fads. Page will talk about some challenges faced at Classy, lessons they learned along the way, and steps they have implemented to be more data-driven throughout the company.

    Page Piccinini is a senior data scientist at Classy. She received her PhD from the Linguistics Department at the University of California, San Diego in 2016. At Classy Page works to better understand data in the non-profit space, and help non-profits to leverage these insights to improve fundraising. Her primary language is R, but American English is a close second.
