Data Fitness for a Healthy Business

Businesses rely on good data to make thoughtful decisions. When that underlying data is of poor quality, it can lead to unexpected and costly outcomes. So, it is very important to prevent bad data from occurring in the first place, by understanding how it gets created.

In this talk, Shailvi will explain the typical lifecycle of data, and walk through the phases where bad data gets introduced. Using relatable examples, she will explain the nuances of catching bad data early in the pipeline. She'll also cover ways to diagnose common data problems, find the root cause, and highlight ways to fix those issues.

Join Shailvi for a blueprint for anyone who works with data and to make a case for their company resources to be spent on proactively addressing data quality.
