3:50 PM Infusing Innovation into Legacy Organizations by Building a Data Science Service

The largest inhibitor to legacy organizations' adoption and engagement with advanced analytics is fear and nerves about the implications of these changes on the company’s image. So how does that analytics muscle develop in legacy organizations and become embedded in operations? In this session hear from Joy Bonaguro, the Chief Data Officer of the City and County of San Francisco, as she discusses her findings from building a data science service inside the government sector, and how those findings translate to legacy organizations.
Participants should leave understanding how to:
  • Introduce advanced analytics in a way that is generative and appealing to legacy organizations
  • Embed analytics in operations: legacy systems, outdated business processes and the workforce
  • Leverage citizen data scientists for large scale experimentation practices
  • Create a consensus among stakeholders to capitalize on the possibilities of advanced analytics
