I work for a pretty big CPG Company (Consumer Packaged Goods) we have many metrics and data sources. However we don’t have someone with qualifications to be able to utilize this data. I’m pushing to have a data department or at least hire a data scientist.
My worry since I’m not a data scientist myself or anyone in the company is, is what will this person be doing?
Do you all think every company needs to have a data strategy or data department to perform advanced analytics predictive analytics in marketing, manufacturing, supply chain and finance?
