IDQ Webinars: with Mario Faria


Chief Data Officers, Data Scientists and Big Data Architects — Crossing the Chasm for a New World of Data


Since 2012, Big Data has become a major topic of discussion, catalyzing attention among the C-Level executives and driving investments and projects inside the enterprise.

What is going to be the next step in your professional future in this data-driven world? New strategically-critical roles are emerging that rely on the ability to manage, govern or analyze data. This is a uniquely advantageous time in the history of business to be someone with these skills.  

This webinar will help professionals, hiring managers and human resources staff understand what is needed to create a high performance Big Data Analytics organization, by putting the right position titles and skills in place, while providing some real life examples on companies which did it successfully. And examples of companies which are completely missing it.
