About this episode

We all strive to be data-driven. And yet we all instinctively know that we’re not very good at it. In fact, if you believe any number of recent surveys, it seems we may actually be getting worse at data. One reason for this is a misalignment on what success looks like. How do you define and measure it? What is the actual value of your data?

This week, Tim and Juan join Lars Albertsson, founder of Scling, to talk about data productivity and balancing a technology vs product-driven approach to data.

This episode features
  • Companies that have truly unlocked data value and how they did it

  • Common missteps along the data maturity journey

  • What have you been practicing... but not actually getting any better at?

Key takeaways

  • Empowered innovation is key to data value

  • Democratization happened by accident with a very flat structure

  • Immutability ended up being an important best practice to ensure repeatability
