How to Walk The Path from BI to Data Science: An interview with Michael Driscoll, data scientist and CEO of Metamarkets
The Business Intelligence industry has long promised a deep understanding of business drivers, consumers and markets. However, in practice, organizations have struggled to achieve these insights—and increasingly massive datasets have begun to eclipse even the capabilities they have put in place. Data science promises a new level of intelligence about the business, but how do you evolve from BI to data science? What can you really expect to achieve by making the transition? Where do you start? What are the challenges and how do you overcome them? What does it take to be truly successful?
