DCDAO Online A/NZ 2021 (2-days conference)

I would like to thank Craig for the invitation, hopefully by this reminder on urging us to be more data-centric and less model-centric. Here is what I observe and absolutely fantastic discussion and people representing their competitive products, as a reminder, this would be a post I can read back for future research.

Welcome from Corinium platform on virtual and online events including Keynote Insights! Yes, I am intrigued with the exposure of panel speakers and power of the enterprise adoption tools that enhance the data and technological aspects of their products, each speaker live up to their work and show them exceptionally! Unfortunately I am unable to attend all seminar due to other commitments :)

Data Dialogue: Building Business Resilience with DataAshley Howard-Neville, Senior Evangelist, TableauJeremy Blaney, Director, Tableau Blueprint Product Manager, Tableau


We couldn’t be more excited to establish this class of AI-powered analytics with Salesforce’s Einstein Discovery engine in Tableau. Built with transparent and ethical AI, it’s a proven technology that gives business teams visibility into key drivers behind the results and the potential for bias, allowing for deeper understanding and confidence in decision-making.

Democratizing AI and ML comes with important considerations and responsibilities This is an emerging field, so it’s unclear how the landscape will change as new technologies and use cases are discovered, and as ethics standards and regulations become more commonplace. AI technology will further be shaped by forthcoming regulations from governing bodies in the European Union, and as more state and federal governments in the US implement new artificial intelligence controls. Given the evolving landscape and level of disruption seen in the past year, organizations are being put to the test: digital transformation is no longer on the horizon, but is here. Enterprises are figuring out ways to manage the current influx of data and AI innovation and its effective applications — including how to use AI to be more agile and resilient.



Powering the ESG Revolution: Agile + Collaborative Data Science (Dataiku)

  • How important is the funding model to support agile innovation POCs versus operationalisation. How are POCs to be funded (innovation budget) vs BAU (operationalisation budget)?
  • Sorry didnt articulate it better… u said we need to define the measures for the data that we are going to incorporate in our hypothesis, so is there a framework that one follows for defining those measure along the way when we are doing our requirements analysis phase etc.. ? makes sense ? and how to validate that if it is a correct measure? and not too much of a deviation from where we want to be and track our progress against any clearer ?
  • Ah got it, yes defining metrics is very important, and the place to start is to see what data is available and also the data closest to business metrics meaning the KPIs that are being used to evaluate business performance.

When I asked about the cloud transformation and techniques onto the cloud native manifesto:

Then what??

In conversation…

Excited to hear that, Novia. You can apply complex business transformations on the data using standard ANSI SQL.

how do you balance data discovery and agility with the risk that people may connect to imperfect datasets? On the mentioned above from another researcher of data-centric shift

“If 80 percent of our work is data preparation, then ensuring data quality is the important work of a machine learning team.”

Andrew Ng, Co-founder and head of Google Brain and was the former Chief Scientist at Baidu

What is data cloud?

Data Dialogue: Snowflake — The Data Cloud Interview James Harnishmacher, Regional Manager, Sales Engineer, Snowflake

Connect this with snowflake account…

  • Great question, Abhi. Most customers create multiple domains in Snowflake and handover the control to each domain. You can then share data in a secure manner between multiple domains. For example, you might have a Snowflake account for finance, one for marketing and one for the data analytics team and share data between them.

so how about a Common Data Model to address that data democratize to give that visibility and access to data to every person ? kinda DW / data mart concept but more to be built as codeless access

Data science is “37.7914° N, 122.3951° W + 2,03 x1⁰⁵mm in 44,7° => 37.7932° N, 122.3947° W,” where Business Science is “take the third left, mind the traffic, and you have arrived at One Market Street.”

Hi Tym, agreed Informatica is not directly involved in building the AI/ML model, but AI/ML models are as good as the data that is fed into, this is where data management and data governance solutions come to the fore. IAG was just an example used to highlight the value Analytics bring to drive business value. No reference made to say that Informatica played a role.

Data Dialogue: Responsive not Reactive- The Data Offense in Modern Data GovernanceAnand Ramamoorthy, Director, APJ Head of Data Governance and Data Security, Informatica

I have a question: Anand mentioned IAG being able to settle a claim using AI in only 24 min. What role did Informatica play in that achievement? I understand Informatic does data management, but I didn’t think you delivered AI / ML solutions?

Giving Voice to… Teams, Talent & Diversity — Upskilling Staff & Yourself Guest Host: Rolee Satyam, Partner, Customer Data, Analytics & Insights, BigW Panellists:

Building on the hub and spoke model to support. Like Optus, they do partner with uni to run some hackathon competition to enhance open source, approach to analytics course content and also external traininf from freelance :) This is so cool knowing company do like to skill up their employee

Team culture and curiosity, also patience on timing to develop and unfold. After that, the real challenge are to retain ‘trained’ employee so they become fulfilled!

Give analysts deep business acumen and focus to access develop their own ‘personalised’ career plan

COE — helps to identify talent within organisation, they believe using the internal business people who understand would be much easier to train than simply recruiting outsiders

this process also helps to do pilot and roll out or simply to have analytics roles such as agile — running in sprint and each sprint are celebrates with a small win.

It’s a great question. At the end of the day, I strongly encourage organizations to create governance processes for both data and content. This includes developing guidelines around what is meant by imperfect data as well as what needs to be done to convert it into perfect data.
