I am speaking with Tina Owenmark of Cisco on The Role of Decision Modeling in Creating Data Science Excellence at Predictive Analytics World in San Francisco.
Cisco’s Data Science Office focuses not just on data science, but also on shaping the questions and answers for Cisco’s operational groups. They focus not on technology or algorithms but on team building, problem solving, environment and community. One critical success factor has been using decision modeling to create Business Understanding – the first step in the CRISP-DM methodology that Cisco uses. Clear and shared understanding of the business problem frames the analytics to be developed and ensures those analytics can be operationalized. This session shows how decision models support Business Understanding, set up effective development, and drive successful analytic deployment.
The session is on the first day, May 16, 11:20am Pacific. I’ll have a few books to give away to those asking questions and we’ll be around before and after if you want to meet and talk.
