Today at 12pm Mango’s Chief Data Scientist, Rich Pugh, will be presenting at the Corporate IT Forum. His talk will cover how companies can transform themselves into effective data-driven businesses.

Almost all companies are investing in some sort of data project – data analytics, big data, AI, and data science. It’s important that data science delivers rather than a phrase that becomes associated with expensive initiatives that not make a meaningful business impact.

With careful planning, organisations are delivering value out of their data, but what they are attempting isn’t really about digital first and foremost. It’s actually about the necessity of transforming their business model.

So what is the jargon of data science, what does it really mean, and why should business leaders care?

Rich Pugh says ‘I’ll look at some effective tips for businesses that have the best chance of succeeding in their mission to become data-driven – and therefore in their wider digital transformation strategy as a whole’.

Data today is the fuel driving the modern business world. It, therefore, stands to reason that the ability to read and speak data should be a fairly mainstream skill. Except it isn’t – yet. According to the 2018 Gartner CIO Agenda, CIOs globally ranked analytics and business intelligence as the most critical technology to achieve the organisation’s business goals, with data and analytics skills topping the list as the most sought-after talent.

As more organisations embrace data-driven digital transformation, it’s clear that the need to upskill and resource data science teams has become far more pronounced. In this regard, a positive trend taking rapid shape is the requirement for data science and analytics capabilities across a much wider range of industry sectors and departments.

As a data science consultancy and experts in practitioner training including R  and Python, Mango is witnessing this organisational uptake first-hand. Liz Matthews, Mango’s Head of Community and Education says that there is an increasing need for R and Python skills across organisations, extending into BI, marketing, analytics, HR and accounting, as businesses continue to take steps forward on their data-driven journey. She believes that as part of the cultural journey in becoming data-driven, a key goal of the c-suite should be to motivate every individual in the organisation to become data literate.
