Metis Launches Webinar Series to Help Organizations Thrive in the Data Revolution
NEW YORK, April 23, 2019 — As the Digital Age evolves into the Data Revolution, executing a data science strategy has morphed from a competitive advantage into a requirement for survival. To help organizations succeed in building effective data analytics capabilities, leading data science training provider Metis has announced a new live webinar series designed for decision-makers and data science managers.
Business leaders are coming to realize the profound impact the Data Revolution will have on every facet of their companies, with IBM CEO Ginni Rometty predicting that 100 percent of jobs will change within the next five to ten years.
“Although organizations of all stripes are increasing their investment in data science and analytics, many face huge challenges with adoption and recognizing the ROI,” said Mike Galvin, Executive Director of Corporate Training at Metis. “From our work helping Intel, Wells Fargo, and other top companies upskill their workforces, we know that a key difference between businesses that reap the benefits of AI and those that don’t is having a strong data and analytics business strategy.”
The first webinar in the new series, “ Start with Strategy: Building an Effective Data Science Project Portfolio for Your Business,” will be held May 15, 2019 at 1 PM ET. Taught by Kerstin Frailey, Senior Data Scientist at Metis, the webinar will tackle the challenges of strategic planning for data science and how to overcome them, including:
- Critically evaluating and selecting pitched projects
- Building an impactful and high yield project portfolio
- Evolving your roadmap to quickly adapt to new opportunities
