In this edition, we talk to Ming Tang about the role of data in healthcare, Andy Hill of Unilever about the global impact of data, and Paul Davison of Royal Mail about research into how Covid-19 is affecting data investment plans.
After a short course in data at university alongside her undergraduate degree in maths and economics, Ausrine kickstarted her data career with an internship at BMW where she taught her colleagues how to use Tableau software. She shared with DataIQ her passion for data and what non-technical people can gain from becoming data literate.
Do you want your business to understand data? Or do you want it to think smarter, using data to enable better questions and more effective decisions? That’s the difference between just focusing on data literacy and looking to embed a true data culture, argues David Reed.
DataIQ has chosen Ming Tang, managing director of data and analytics at NHS England, as the most influential person in data and analytics in the 2021 edition of the DataIQ 100. In partnership with Tableau, it is the first and only fully-curated power list of the data industry’s key figures.
