Cloud as Enabler to become more data driven

Cloud as Enabler to become more data driven. The adjective data driven means that progress in an activity is compelled by data, rather than by intuition, personal experience or a gut feeling.

Googling data driven gives you over 637 mln. results so time to add an extra result to this with this episode.

But we wanted to make it more specific. We moved or big data into the cloud and we had some nice insights that we want to share. We asked our two guests of this episode to do so.

It turned out to be an interesting talk about data quality but also about ‘data wrestling’.  About how to migrate your older data platform into an up to date data platform. About training your business consumers in their mind-shift from ‘resource aware’ to ‘cost aware’. And about how to explore all the new opportunities that comes with this new setup.
