Topic

To remain competitive in the rapidly growing e-commerce market, it is crucial to implement data-driven solutions: this not only leads to highly personalized marketing approaches, but also to increased efficiency and more possibilities for automation. However, adopting data science is much broader than switching to a new technology, it involves a change in thinking and problem solving. A constant factor in change is always people and their ability or lack thereof to adopt the new ways of working. So how do you make data-driven solutions “successful”? How do you move the organization along?
