Engineering Data: The art of creating data you trust

Dr Vidhyalakshmi Karthikeyan, Head of Data and Insights, YouView TV 

Creating good data for use cases you already know about is tough. Creating future-proof data for use cases yet unknown is tougher, especially when those who use the data may know nothing about how it was created.

This disconnect destroys trust in the data itself. Insights carry a long list of caveats that undermine their value in decision-making. Downstream applications carry an even longer list of workarounds that are unsustainable.

This talk will cover:

  • Considerations in creating first-party data at scale from complex tech platforms like TVs and Set-Top-Boxes
  • Practical ways of working to embed in an organisation to connect data consumers to data producers
  • Technical solutions that foster and enforce the creation and evolution of good quality data products from inception to ingestion to transformation to consumption

What is the right ‘human’ mix for a data & analytics delivery team? Does it differ project to project? How to find and get the right mix to ensure successful delivery and skill transfer at the end of the project? 

In this session I will look at: 

  • What type of data projects benefit from a Hybrid Team? 
  • The unifying presence a 3rd party consultancy can bring to Data & Analytics Projects. 
  • Helping to match the technology needs to fit the data strategy and the culture strategy 
  • How 3rd party consultants can help bridge the gap and deliver the strategy and desired business outcomes for data & analytics projects. 
  • Addressing the challenges of bringing different departments together, the skills gaps and overcoming technology familiarity 
  • How to get the mix right and build out the ‘resident’ humans skills 

Helping the ‘humans’ deliver the solutions – with technology delivering the functionality.

Answering a number of questions will frame thinking:

  • What does data strategy look like in your organisation – and is this the right strategy?
