Guy Taylor

Director of Data Science & Analytics

Guy Taylor has experienced several cultures and technologies via his work in many or-ganisations. This has given him substantial technical ability while keeping him con-nected to both the company and the people that make it run. As a result of his experi-ences, he often speaks about data-related issues, and he is well-known among data pro-fessionals. Systems analysis, process analysis, data architecture, and data analysis are among Guy’s areas of competence.



Every organization strives to extract the full value of its data assets. However, leadership tends to go straight to the KPIs, neglecting the essential intermediate steps before data consumption. Although Strategic Business Targets are indeed imperative, upper management needs to be involved in intermediate efforts starting from the data-strategy inception. Therefore, what does it take to ultimately make the data initiative a sustainable, scalable and agile one?
