The Role of Data Quality in Analytics Modernization, Machine Learning & AI

In the midst of the hype around modern analytics and AI, there is an underlying shift of epic proportions: computing has been radically commoditized in the last five years. Thanks to open source, everyone has access to the same algorithms for data analysis, machine learning and predictive inference. Thanks to the cloud, everyone has access to massive infrastructure at the touch of a button. This is no longer aspirational: the availability of sophisticated data analysis at scale is a concrete reality, across sectors and use cases. The remaining battle is—as it should be—focused on the data, and how data gets exploited. Unfortunately for most organizations, the ROI on data investments remains a major challenge. The flow of data is typically a diverse, multi-structured, noise-ridden source of signal. This can quickly turn analytics initiatives into abject failures, either stalled on complexity, or using bad data to drive bad decisions. Without good data preparation technologies and practices, users of all types are frustrated; their productivity and satisfaction suffer because it’s too hard to get accurate data that’s appropriately structured for their specific project. During this roundtable discussion, we'll touch on some of the key questions today:

  • What is the business impact of poor data quality today, and how will that increase with the advent of machine learning and AI?
  • How can the speed of modern business benefit from new approaches to data quality that replace legacy, siloed processes?
  • How do new solutions to data quality and preparation enable organizational speed, scale and efficiency without sacrificing governance and accuracy?
  • How has the emergence of new trends in analytics—including cloud, machine learning and AI—impacted the data quality landscape?

Building A Culture of Test, Measurement and Learning With An Enterprise

At any given time, Target invests in a number of strategic priorities that are intended to drive profitable growth for the retailer. These growth efforts are often inter-related, for example, supply chain transformation efforts impact stores, and changes in marketing strategies impact both digital and store sales.  Therefore, a reasonably good read on value of each effort is critical.  This kind of measurement enables Target to pivot and/or iterate with speed on each of these efforts.

In this talk, I will share how Target is building a test-and-measure culture by focusing on three challenges: 

  • More Data Can Lead to More Confusion: Governance of Measurement is Critical at Large Organizations
  • Robust Test Design Requires Statistical Expertise: Statistical and Analytical Skills Must be a Priority
  • Manual Steps Should be Continuously Automated: End to End Automation is Important to Scale A/B Testing
