Answers to Today’s Most Pressing Data Questions

One of the best parts of working for Periscope Data is that we have access to the brightest minds in data today. Our customer base is full of teams using data creatively to solve new problems and create new advantages for their companies. We get to have discussions with the individuals making the most innovative data decisions, and occasionally we get an opportunity to do that in front of an audience of other data professionals.

As 2018 closed, Periscope Data hosted a happy hour in our office as a platform for a conversation about the use of data. We invited some of our most outstanding customers and asked questions we identified as vital to the way data is analyzed today.

Below are links to the video recordings of that panel conversation. The panel was moderated by our very own Chris Meier and included panelists Angela Zhang (Plaid), Ruben Kogel (VSCO), Leon Tchikindas (Periscope Data) and Scott Castle (Periscope Data).

How Modern Companies Use Data

Empowering Analysts to Find Their Own Answers

The best data teams provide value by empowering analysts on other teams to easily answer their own questions. Our data-driven panel discusses the use of data documentation, sandboxes, standardized queries and more as a means of providing the best self-service experience.

Creating a Single Source of Truth

Preparing clean datasets for company-wide use is one of the most crucial roles of any data team. The data needs to be clean, accurate, reliable and easy for other teams to read. Our data-driven panel dives into the programs that they’ve built to create a single source of truth for their company’s data.

How to Structure the Modern Data Team

There’s a lot of work to do to transform raw data into data-driven decisions. Each company has unique data needs, but there’s a universal need to clarify responsibilities, roles and processes to get the most out of data. Our data-driven panel discusses horizontal vs. vertical workflows, centralized vs. decentralized data teams and generalists vs. specialists.
