    Can you be a Data Scientist without coding?

    Can you be a Data Scientist without coding?
    Whether you can call yourself a data scientist if you can't code is as hotly debated as Brexit. Type the question "Can you be a Data Scientist without coding?" into Google and you'll get a hundred different answers. The opinion will vary wildly depending on whether the author is a coder, or a non-coder. Search the job listings, and you won't find a definitive answer there either. Rather than fill the internet with yet another opinion (as I am not a coder, my opinion would be quite biased), I thought I would perform a little meta analysis. For this post, I pooled data from about sixty different sources, to uncover current thinking on what is quite a debatable topic. You won't find all sources listed below, as I have no wish…

    Do You Have the Right Software for Your Digital Transformation?

    Do You Have the Right Software for Your Digital Transformation?
    Most small and midsize businesses run on old software suites. Their systems no longer fit the demands of a work-from-anywhere world. Even worse, they are not well integrated, causing extra work for employees who spend long hours, often on personal time, toggling between programs to support what should be simple business processes. On top of that, poor software support erodes the vendor-customer relationship, because it makes conducting business more difficult.

    Introducing the new Tableau platform, reimagined for the enterprise

    As more businesses accelerate digital transformation initiatives, leaders are gaining a better understanding of the value of data, and want to scale analytics across their organization. However, on the road to becoming a data-driven organization, choosing an enterprise platform often presents leaders with compromises: Strong governance or agile, self-service? Deep, powerful capabilities or approachable features for broader use cases? A platform that’s readily scalable or cost-effective?

    Why Do Chief Data Officers Have Such Short Tenures?

    Why Do Chief Data Officers Have Such Short Tenures?
    Thirty years ago, a widely repeated joke was that CIO — the abbreviation for Chief Information Officer — really meant “career is over.” But as job tenures lengthened and the role became more institutionalized, the joke lost its relevance. Now, however, the most unstable C-suite job may be the Chief Data Officer, or CDO. Tenures are short, turnover is high, and as in the early days of the CIO role, many companies don’t seem to know exactly what they want from its incumbents. But the CDO job doesn’t have to be so unstable. We believe there are ways that its value can be made more apparent, and for benefits to be delivered quickly enough to prolong job tenures. A clearer definition of the role and a focus on business rather…
