Bill Franks, Chief Analytics Officer, Teradata, presents at the 2012 Big Analytics Roadshow.
As enterprises come to understand the value of analytics, more support and funding is being allocated to build these departments. Managers are now faced with the challenge of who to hire. What exactly makes a great analytic professional? Is a Data Scientist a "must have"? Should a candidate have a PhD? Is prior experience in a specific industry vital? Just what is the right fit when creating a successful team? The answers to these questions are still unclear as the value of analytics continues to grow.
In this session, Bill Franks, author of the book, Taming the Big Data Tidal Wave, addresses these and many more questions as he defines the characteristics of high-performing data scientists and great analytics teams.
